My advice is 5 days are not enough!!!  I’m not sure how much specific advice I can give that would be useful to someone planning a honeymoon because our experience was very different (group trip on a pretty gross boat that had black mold in the shower – not even joking).

Anyway Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar, and Plitvice Lakes were some highlights.  I don’t know if they have sailing options that are more luxurious/romantic but traveling up the coast by boat was an amazing way to see a lot of the country without the stress of traveling.

I’ve only been to Dubrovnik, but it was beautiful. However you probably wouldn’t need 5 days there.

It’s fantastic! We were in our campervan. So I can’t recommend accommodation but Dubrovnik, Split, the islands and Plitvice National Park are amazing.

We stayed in Dubrovnik for a week but ventured out with a car for a couple days. I loved Croatia, its so beautiful. We drove to Montenegro for a day and drove round the fjord area, saw Kotor and Budva which were both lovely and much less busy than Dubrovnik. We also drove north in Croatia to Trsteno up to Ston/ Mali Ston and up into the Peljesac Peninsula for wine tasting (if you do this go to ‘Vino Spaleta’ for wine tasting, they were fantastic). We saw a few Game of Thrones sites around the area too and drove south to Cavtat area. If we went back we would also do a day trip into Bosnia and Herzegovina for Mostar city. If you do Dubrovnik make sure to walk the city walls, go up the cable car on the mountain and you can also spend a day walking around Lokrum island (get the ferry from Dubrovnik harbour) which is absolutely beautiful and worth doing!

We havent been further north but ive heard great things about the islands by Split like Hvar. Id also love to see Plitvice lakes one day.

We’d stay the bulk of our time in Split, hands down. We’d maybe take a couple days, tops, to visit some other locations since Zagreb’s such a fun town but the beach wins out for us. 

Happy planning!

The Dalmatian Coast! So many beautiful places! Rovinj, Split, Mali and Veli Losinj, Hvar, Dubrovnik… But I agree that five days is simply not enough.

We spent nearly 2 weeks in Croatia- 2 nights in Split, 4 in Dubrovnik and 6 nights sailing. Abolutely loved both Split and Dubrovnik. From Dubrovnik we also took a day trip to Miljet, which is an island with amazing salt water lakes. Sailing is a great way to see the more “off the beaten track” places, and it’s also so chilled and relaxing. A negative is that it’s not particularly luxurious unless you have a lot of cash to spend.
