Explore Croatia’s enchanting coastline

This unrelentingly gorgeous stretch of Adriatic coast constantly changes from beautiful mountains to walled towns to low-slung islands and back again.
Mali Lošinj town on the coastal island of Lošinj

Istrian peninsula

1 POREČ

While this ancient Roman town is not the place for a quiet getaway, it does have the World Heritage-listed, 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica, one of Europe’s finest intact examples of Byzantine art. The glittering wall mosaic masterpieces feature biblical scenes, archangels and Istrian martyrs (Eufrazijeva ulica 22; 9am–4pm Nov–Mar, 9am– 6pm Apr–Oct; closed Sun; £4).

2 ROVINJ

Set aside at least two days for the coast’s showpiece resort town, one of the Med’s last true fishing ports. Prayers for a good catch are sent forth at the massive Church of St Euphemia, whose 60m-high tower punctuates the peninsula. The old town is webbed with cobbled streets and piazzas, while the 14 islands of the Rovinj archipelago, just offshore, make for a very pleasant afternoon day trip.
