This place is great to visit by boat, since you can swim in the water on one side, and relax under the comfort of the sun from the boat on the other, something they cannot make those who are on foot.</p> <h3>Valovine Beach</h3><p>It is one of the few sandy coastlines you'll find in Istria, but still also retains an overwhelming vegetation environment. It is ideal for sunbathing or completely relaxing during your holiday. </p> <h3>Cube Beach</h3><p> Located in Trogir, it supplies many services such as restaurants, changing rooms, tennis courts, etc. and it is surrounded by pine trees and many rocks.</p> <h3>Raduca Beach</h3><p> It appears in all the guidebooks as one of the best beaches of Croatia. Situated in Primosten, a pristine beach is narrow and long at the crossroads forests and white sand. </p> </ul> <h2>Gastronomy</h2> <p>The Gastronomy of Croatia is heterogeneous and known, therefore, as a “cuisine of regions”, as each part of Croatia has its own culinary traditions. There are many differences between traditional culinary customs of the inhabitants of the interior and of those who live on the coasts. The indoor kitchen is more characterized by its Slavic influences and the more recent contacts with other cultures’ cuisines such as Hungarian, Viennese and Turkish. Coastal regions, on the other hand, have influences from the Greek, French and Italian gastronomies. </p> <p>The advantage of sailing in Croatia compared to other places in the Mediterranean Sea is that the air currents and the distance between the islands allow you to have a quick and interesting navigation.
