You’ll already know to expect craggy coastline views as you enjoy some of Europe’s best water sports in Croatia, but this Balkan country isn’t popularly reckoned to have one of the world’s great cuisines and it's unlikelythat you have a neighbourhood restaurant serving up traditional Croatia food nearby!

You’ll see how unfair that judgement is as you explore the country. Beyond the cliffs you’ll see flourishing vineyards, citrus and olive orchards; and on the sea, you’re never too far from a fishing boat bringing in a fresh catch for dinner.

Croatia has a highly regional food culture, so the food you enjoy at your resort will most likely be local, and will always be based on fantastic local produce prepared with love and care.

Wherever you’re staying here are five dishes you must try, including the Croatian national dish.
