Where to stay at the coastline of Dalmatia

By on 4. Juni 2017

The coastline of Dalmatia has a lot of very beautiful spots where you can stop by. For many tourists this coastline is very special. Every year many travelers – singles, couples and families – book their vacations in Croatia to enjoy the incomparable beauty of the coastline of Dalmatia. 

Where to stay at the coastline of Dalmatia

But guys, obviously there is one big question, when you visit the coastline of Dalmatia. Especially for families it is the most important one:

  • Where to stay?

And there are a couple other questions that come with the first one, like:

  • Which ones are the most comfortable ones?
  • Which ones are the cheapest ones?
  • Is there a good combination out of both?

And so on…

What a view onto the coastline of Dalmatia

The coastline of Dalmatia is absolutely wonderful

Where I would stay at the coastline of Dalmatia

The main place, which I really liked at the coastline of Dalmatia, was Omis. I could list so many reasons, why I would always choose this place. I guess, the main reason is, that it is the first village, that I have ever been to on the coastline of Dalmatia. But it could also just be the fact, that I like so much, because it is a great area for everyone.

There is only one place to stay on the coastline of Makarska

Further possible accommodation on the coastline of Dalmatia

Other good places you can stay at on the coastline of Dalmatia in my opinion are:

  • Split
  • Makarska
  • Trogir

Split

Split is very diverse and the pivotal point on the coastline of Dalmatia. It maybe is the main place to be at in whole Croatia besides Zagreb and Dubrovnic. Split is really pretty and there is a lot to see. But it definitely is not as relaxing as other smaller cities/ villages.

Makarska

Makarska is a place, that I would recommend for families. This city has everything you need and more. There are various beautiful beaches and a lot of fun activities to do. Additionally you find all kinds of accommodation there. An awesome place to enjoy your vacation.

Small villages along the way to Makarska

Trogir

Trogir is very similar to Makarska, but has more historical stuff to see. So, I would say it is a good choice for people, who are more interested in getting to know Croatia and its history a little more. People, who place value on old buildings, the old roman style/ vibe and so on. Trogir really is a very recommendable place on the coastline of Dalmatia I’d say.

Omis

But nothing can be compared to Omis I think. There is some stuff, that just fascinate me about this place, even though all the other cities are really great as well. I particularly like:

  1. The old roman style (you find this everywhere in Croatia though)
  2. No crowded beaches and no rubbish anywhere
  3. It’s built at a small bay at the outfall of a river
  4. Behind the mountain ranges you find a very impressive canyon
  5. It has two small and very cool pirate castles (also everywhere in Croatia)

But there are so many more reasons why Omis is the Nr. 1 on the coastline of Dalmatia. I guess, you just gotta see yourself 😉

Different sorts of accommodation in Omis

Above I showed you a couple reasons why Omis is my favourite, but what about the accommodation itself? What do you prefer? A nice hotel or a decent homestay? Maybe a small backpackers hostel?

All the different sorts of accommodation have their pros and their contras to them. It really depends on what you like and what you need. No one would go into a backpackers, if they have 3 kids and it’s their “once in a year holiday”. You would rather check into a nice hotel, where you don’t have to worry about anything. I get that. I just wanna give you a short overview on all the main kinds of accommodation available. In my opinion you have the following 3 choices in Omis (everything else is irrelevant I think).

Hotels

You will find a lot of good hotels on the coastline of Dalmatia and also in Omis. Just search on Google. All of them are lying in the centre and not on the hills/ mountains ranges. So everthing is very close: Supermarkets, shops, beaches, restaurants, bakeries, etc.

On the other hand you obviously missing out on the special view, which you would have from the hills. Furthermore it is definitely a little louder and more crowded in the centre of the village. So make a conscious choice, if you want to stay in a hotel or not. I guess though, that it is a good option for families most of the time.

Backpackers

If you want more action, I’d tell you to go to a backpackers hostel. Does not matter, if you are single or a couple (maybe not for families 🙂 ). The positives aspects are very obvious, I guess. Most of the time backpacker hostels are quite easy to find everywhere. Usually they are also pretty cheap. Aaaand they almost always offer a lot of different activities. Plus it is really easy to get in contact with other travellers from all over the world. You can hang out and enjoy your time together.

The negative side is also quite easy to see. You don’t really have a lot of privacy, it gets pretty messy and it might be a little loud sometimes, because of the parties 😉 So you should really be aware of that. But in general it’s quite nice and the coastline of Dalmatia has a lot of good ones.

Homestays

I say it straight from the start. I recommend homestays the most on the coastline of Dalmatia. Why? For a couple reasons. Nowerdays it is easy to find them through Airbnb for e.g.. You get in contact with locals, who can help you with literally everything. When I was there, me and my girlfriend got pretty lucky. Our landlord even told us about some cool things we should do and we actually did them all – like going to the pirate castles on the mountains, visiting the canyon, etc.

The view at the canyon is incredible

Besides that, most of the time the rooms are in good condition, you have a certain privacy and the accommodation is not to expensive. So, I think it is a good compromise for everyone – singles, couples and families. Additionally most of the homestays are located outside of the town. So, it’s more relaxed and you have a better view onto the ocean and the beautiful islands, if you manage to find something up the hills.

I also highly recommend homestays on the coastline of Dalmatia, because Croatians/ Croatian hosts are really friendly as far as I have experienced it 😉

Ultimately you have to choose what’s best for you. But I know what I will choose, when I come back to the coastline of Dalmatia.

.
It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙
.
I really didn't want to leave Morocco though... 😟
.
I would have loved to travel it even more, but I know I will definitely come back

The good thing is, there is always a next destination to travel to... 😉

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

  • So in love view with that top view of the Dades Gorge 😍
.
And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍
.
On the way there I also picked up a moroccan local as well as a german traveller, that I spent the last three days with
.
The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them
.
They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!
.
I am only here since 6 days and I can already highly recommend to make this one of your top destinations to travel to in 2018 👍
.
TELL ME: Does anyone know some good spots to visit along the southern coastline? 😄

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃

  • Is there anything better than a great sunset by a wonderful beach??? 😀🌅
.
I don't really know 😅
.
I have to admit, however, that I like a pretty sunrise a little more than a sunset to be honest
.
But why?
.
I guess, because a sunrise symbolises a new start 👌
.
A start to a new day
.
A start to a new week
.
A start to a new life
.
A start to whatever you want to be new
.
And that's what life comes down to a lot of times anyway, right? It's about starting things over and over again until they work out the way you want them to 💪
.
TELL ME: What do you like more, a sunset or a sunrise??? 😄

  • Portrait of a Filippino kid at Coron Island 👧
.
You guys already know that I often talk about what you can learn from travelling
.
THIS picture is the perfect example why I do that so often❗
.
Visiting the Philippines and especially seeing the local homeless kids in Coron made me learn something really valuable again
.
Even though these kids literally have nothing, they still seem very happy and they always have a smile on their face
.
The only thing you need to do is to wave, take a picture or just simply talk to them 📷
.
These kids taught me a lot about gratitude and happiness
.
Since I saw them, I try to be grateful for each and every single day, because I don't have to live under these kind of circumstances (and never had to)
.
Plus, if they can be happy with the life they live, then I can do it too!
.
Most people, including me, complain waaay to much about things that are not worth complaining about 😒
.
Sometimes it just needs a situation like seeing some homeless Filippino kids to put things in the right perspective again 🙏

  • Throwing stones around while sitting by a crystal clear swedish river in the middle of nowhere 🌲🙏
.
For me, this is the ultimate example for a perfect timeout
.
I don't know how you guys see it, but I feel that having a proper timeout once in a while gets more and more important in our modern world 🌏
.
Everything gets faster and faster every single day
.
Sometimes it's almost impossible to keep up with the pace
.
I am not saying that hustle or working hard is a bad thing (actually the opposite), but in oder to give a 100 %, you need to be fully focused and energized 💪
.
This is why I try to get my german ass to other countries as much as I can, to just simply be disconnected from the hustle and to recharge my batteries
.
For my next timeout I have Marocco on my list, starting from the upcoming sunday! 😀
.
I will climb North Africa's highest mountain, visit Marocco ' highest waterfall and ride camels through the desert
.
And all that to just simply get my head free and to enjoy life❗
.
TELL ME: How do you disconnected from daily life in the best possible way???

  • One of the moments where I felt completely free was this one 🙏
.
Driving down the great ocean road with a couple of friends .
The pure feeling of freedom I had, was absolutely incredible for me and in my opinion, that's pretty much what every person should aim for 👌
.
Only a couple percent of humans on our planet really have this privilege of being free - time and money wise
.
Being able to decide how you want to spend your day, doing whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, without having anyone telling you that you can't, is the ultimate goal for me ⭐
.
And until I get there I try to get this feeling of freedom as much as I can to fuel my brain 👊
.
This is also why I like traveling so much, because you experience crazy things that give you this feeling
.
Why am I saying this???
.
Because I honestly think that we all need something in our lifes that keeps us going
.
For some it's driving a nice car
.
For others it's buying their own flat
.
For me, it's living life on my own terms
.
And this is why I can only recommend anyone, who thinks in a similar way, to travel foreign countries as much as possible, because it gives you a good glimpse of best feeling in the world - FREEDOM
