Each one of the Croatian islands has its special beauty and characteristics. Each has
its own "most". We will reveal a few of them to you, but we know that every one
of you will discover at least one island superlative of your own in the Croatian Adriatic.
There's really plenty to choose from...
- The biggest island in Croatia is Krk with a total area of 409 sq. km.

but it isn't. Hvar is the longest at 68 km, with an area of 300 sq. km.

hours of sunshine per year. The average for the whole Adriatic is 2600 hours per year.
