The sands of Susak Island

susak-33 I always wanted to visit Susak. There is something (actually, A LOT  of) unique about that island. Well off the radar, it is a peaceful paradise far away from popular and noisy islands of the Dalmatian coast.

There are numerous “famous” beaches on our coast. Bačvice in Split, Kolovare beach of Zadar, Banje in Dubrovnik, Bonj of Hvar… to mention just a few.

Winter is always the best time to explore. The weather, when sunny, is ideal for hikes and walks.

Offroading in Croatia – Vransko jezero

As the season ended, I got back to the list of places I still had to visit. Despite being small, Dalmatia hides many riches and amazing places, unexpected views, historic and natural heritage. One of the places I had in mind for a while was the canyon on the northern shore of Vransko jezero. Vransko jezero is…
