While the sun and the beach may be the most popular activities in Central Dalmatia, there is plenty more on offer for those looking to explore this fantastic region. Central Dalmatia is gradually earning the reputation as one of the best adventure tourism playgrounds in Europe, with its diverse terrain a haven for activities such as sailing, climbing, hiking, cycling – and sea kayaking.
Named by Rough Guides as one of the 17 unmissable things to do in Croatia, sea kayaking in Central Dalmatia is gaining in popularity, and there are now several experienced companies in Split, Trogir, the Makarska Riveria and the islands who offer excellent sea kayaking tours, both for experienced kayakers and first timers.
As the cities and beaches fill up in peak season, kayaking is an excellent way to beat the crowds, get out onto that pristine Adriatic, and discover the real and the hidden Dalmatia, all at the same time. If you are lucky, you may even get to see a bathing donkey or two!
