Welcome to Dalmatia
Dalmatia is a region of southern Croatia on the east coast of the Adriatic Sea, extending between the island of Pag to the northwest and Kotor bay to the southeast. Due to sea currents and the way the winds blow on the Adriatic, sea water is cleaner and hotter in Dalmatia than on the Italian side. The coast includes a large number of reentrances and islands, narrows, bays and beaches, making it attractive for water sports and tourism. The largest Dalmatian islands are Dugi Otok, Ugljan, Pašman, Brač, Hvar, Korčula, Vis, Lastovo and Mljet. Dalmatia, divided into four sub-regions, whose capitals are Zadar, Šibenik, Split and Dubrovnik, is the hottest destination in Europe at the moment, with islands and incredible beaches that attract more and more tourists. Other towns in Dalmatia include Kaštela, Sinj, Solin, Omiš, Knin, Metković, Makarska, Trogir, Ploče, Trilj and Imotski.
