Sanibel Island, Florida Causeway Bridge

The most beautiful part of Sanibel Island Florida is its coastline. While there are a few sections of the mainland that is not so beautiful, the majority of the area is lush green grassland with plenty of trees and bushes along the shores and in the bays.

It’s also home to a variety of sea birds that find this location to be their home. You can easily spend a day or two sightseeing the various species and take in the beauty of this Florida Keys paradise.

If you love the water, then you’ll love Sanibel Island Florida. This destination is one of the top places for finding sea shells on any trip to the Keys.

Because it is the only barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, there are an abundance of sea life and coral in the area. A great place to find sea shells is at Quail Island, which is on Sanibel Island’s western end.

Here, tourists will see the world-famous Royal Tuna, a large and vibrant blue fish that is native to the waters around Sanibel. Many people believe that the Royal Tuna was actually discovered on Sanibel Island long before the United States took possession of the territory.

Along with finding sea shells, tourists will enjoy trips to its beaches. These beaches offer some of the best views in the Keys and offer an assortment of activities for every level of the traveler.

Croatia: Land Of Beaches

Croatia coast view from Dubrovnik

The Croatian coast is one of the most attractive sea front holiday destinations in Europe.

The Adriatic coastline runs from the southern end of the Black Sea in the south to the Adriatic sea at the north. Adriatic Cruise lines, one of the largest cruise operators in the world, operate cruises along the Croatian coast taking visitors to more than 80 ports of call.

Most of the Croatian Dalmatian coast is off the Greek Island of Zakynthos and is thus not well explored. However, there are several small secluded coves and pockets along the coast which offer exciting and varied water sports activities.

The Adriatic Coastline

The Adriatic coastline starts from the southern end of the island of Skopje and includes three Islands: Kvarner, Gjakova, and Zivoron.

Kvarner Island is the largest Island of the Croatian coast and is a popular resort town. It has a picturesque pine wood mountain and the “blue lagoon”.

Skopje Island, the second largest Island, is home to some beautiful beaches and the village of Pula.

What to See

Once in the Dalmatian Coast you will need to decide which direction you would like to travel and which destinations you would like to visit.

A Dalmatian holiday complete without visiting Orbus or Zadar islands is nearly impossible. This is because Orbus is the capital of Dalmatia and Zadar is the largest Island of Dalmatia. Both Islands are popular tourist places and a sightseeing excursion to Orbus is an enjoyable and worthwhile part of any Croatian cruise trip.


Orbus is home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the City of Pula and the Town of Split. It is also home to a number of museums and art galleries.

A stay in Orbus city is a must as it is an authentic historic center of Croatia. If you visit the Old Town of Split you can marvel at the Monastery with its leaning minaret.

While in Split take a gondola ride on its stunning coastline and experience the distinctive atmosphere of the Dalmatian Coast.


If you like a more laid back feel then the town of Dubrovnik offers you that and much more. The old town and seaside cafes, markets and museums are perfect for spending your time.

Be sure to try the homemade sausages at the famous “sausage castle!”

Final Words

Croatian islands are wonderful and offer visitors an exciting and different perspective on the world.

The islands of the Dalmatian Coast have an interesting history and offer something for everyone.

The weather is warm and pleasant most of the year. The last three months of the year can see very high winds and storms, which can be harsh on the exposed skin. However, the islands are a great place to take a holiday. If you haven’t already done so, you’re missing out!…
