I've been to the Croatian Coast a few times in the last 10 years (3 mos. at a time)& loved it. Now, I'm taking my husband & best friend of 6 yrs., who hasn't been to Croatia. We'll be travelling to small villages from the Island of Krk along the coastline to Split. The locals love visitors. They have wonderful fresh open markets & cozy restaurants along the coastline. You can rent an upper-level 'pension' very reasonably viewing the sparkling Adriatic and its open beaches!
