Sarah-Jane has lived in Croatia for 10+ years. SJ, as she is known, has been traveling the Balkans & beyond since 2000. She now shares her passion for traveling with her husband & kids.

If you’re a bird, you can close this browser down as you’ve seen these ridiculously stunning photos of Croatia before. For those of us walking on two legs, with a massive bucket list of travel wishes, keep reading.

My newfound discovery here in Croatia is drone photography. It provides you with a view of Croatia that you simply can’t see for yourself, that is, unless, as I said, you’re a bird or you own your own plane.

Before you gaze at Croatia, as you’ve never seen it before, I’d like to thank Siniša from Aerial Croatia, the company behind these photos, for allowing me to share them with you all.


The island of Korcula is one of the greenest islands along the Adriatic, thanks to the vineyards and olive groves. Small beaches and quiet coves form its southern coast. You can get to the island via ferry from Split, Dubrovnik, or Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula.

Green and blue have always been 2 of my favorite colors. This is lucky given my new life in Croatia consists of a lot of it.

Vineyards On The Peljesac Peninsula

Many traditional grape varieties still survive in Croatia, like those grown on Peljesac, which makes delicious Croatian wine exported all over the world.

Biokovo Mountain & Pine Forest

Biokovo is protected as a nature park, and Siniša tells me that when the weather is very clear, it is possible to see Monte Gargano in Italy, 252 km away from the top of the mountain.

Known as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic,’ Dubrovnik is famous for a reason, and it, not just her beauty. Take a look at what else you can do while in Dubrovnik and where you can eat & drink like a local.

A small tourist village, Pakoštane, is just 30 kilometers from the town of Zadar. Set in a beautiful location on the bay with a sandy beach, surrounded by pine forest.

Islet Stupe

One of the 525 in the Adriatic Sea. Islet Stupe sure it pretty.

The town has a long history that dates back to 360 BC, when the Illyrians inhabited it.
