Rovinj

Colorful houses perched on hill slopes against the backdrop of the sparkling Adriatic has arguably made Rovinj one of the most picturesque coastal towns in the whole of Croatia.

Zadar

Zadar is an all-time favorite of honeymooners as not only it has beautiful beaches and a lovely vibe,it lies in close proximity to one of the best national parks of Croatia,Kornati, which can easily be accessed on a day trip from Zadar.

Head to the waterfront with your beloved just before sunset and sit on the steps to hear the magical natural sounds of the Sea Organ against the backdrop of a blazing Zadar sunset. Then amble across to the Salutation to the Sun and see the city light up slowly as darkness falls.
