Istria & Kvarner

The western peninsula of Croatia is known for its picturesque sights, rich history and excellent cuisine. Top honeymoon destinations are the exquisitely charming towns of Rovinj and Opatija, as well as the romantic lighthouse on Cape Savudrija, the westernmost point of Croatia. 

As you explore Istria, consider extending your honeymoon Croatia journey to the captivating Kvarner Bay area. Its breathtaking coastline and verdant islands introduce a tranquil maritime essence to Istria’s varied landscapes, offering a broad backdrop for your romantic adventures and ensuring an unforgettable honeymoon experience.

Since Istria is packed with sights, we recommend you take a tour of the region and stop by the many enchanting hilltop villages, such as Motovun, Buje, Roč and Hum, called “the smallest city in the world”. Enjoy the wonderful olive groves and stone houses, and definitely treat yourselves to a candlelight dinner with beef from the autochthonous Istrian ox boškarin, renowned extra virgin olive oils, local wine called malvazija and traditional pasta fuži.

The area is especially famous for its truffles, an exclusive delicacy that has a reputation of being quite the aphrodisiac. Guess you have to try for yourself!

Secluded islands

Croatia’s coastline is known for having more than a thousand islands, and the quiet, less crowded ones are some of the most romantic honeymoon destinations in the country. Imagine walking hand in hand next to the calming waves of the iridescent turquoise and sapphire Adriatic Sea, accompanied by a quartet of cicadas and the smell of Mediterranean flora. Quite a nice start of your life together, don’t you think? Oh, and if you really want an intimate getaway, then pick one of the islands with no traffic or cars, such as Susak, Prvić or Silba.


Zadar earns a spot on every list of top romantic places in Croatia thanks to its absolutely gorgeous sunset. The glowing pinkish and orange hues above the calm, blue sea enchanted even famed movie director Alfred Hitchcock, who gave it the title of “the most beautiful sunset in the world”. And after watching the spectacle in the sky, take your loved one by the hand to roam the cobbled streets of this ancient coastal town.


Nestled along the Adriatic coast, Šibenik is a city where history and natural beauty converge, offering a romantic and culturally rich honeymoon destination. Its UNESCO-listed Cathedral of St. James, ancient fortresses, and quaint stone streets set the stage for memorable explorations.


Surrounded by ancient walls, Dubrovnik offers a breathtaking setting that combines the allure of medieval history with the serenity of the Adriatic Sea. Known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, its remarkable architecture and romantic old town ambiance provide the perfect setting for an unforgettable honeymoon experience.

Gorski Kotar & Lika

Far away from the hustle and bustle of city life lie the enchanting green forests, imposing mountains, charming huts and crystal-clear waters of Croatia’s most forested region, Gorski Kotar. Fužine, Delnice and Vrbovsko are just some of the settlements known for mouth-watering delicacies and surrounded by gorgeous natural sights. If you’re both outdoor enthusiasts, then maybe a perfect romantic getaway for you includes hiking and climbing to the peaks of Risnjak National Park, where you can take in the breathtaking view of the Adriatic beneath you.
