Croatia lays claim to 1,244 islands, and each has its own distinctive personality. Such as the enchanting Korcula, an island of woodlands, vineyards, olive groves, beaches and fishing villages. Its main town is frequently dubbed 'Little Dubrovnik' and with its imposing medieval walls and Gothic-Renaissance style architecture the comparison is indeed apt. The island also produces a fabulous crisp white wine made from the posip grape. A winetasting, anyone? Meanwhile, Hvar has earned something of a hedonistic reputation and yes, it's the go-to party island if you're looking to crank up the volume and enjoy the nightlife. But that's only half the story: away from the chic clubs and restaurants, is the island's historical heart, the UNESCO-listed Stari Grad Plain, which is home to rolling vineyards and sun-splashed olive groves, and has remained virtually unchanged since the 4th century BC. Then there is the beautiful Losinj, which has earned the tag 'the island of wellness and vitality'. Its reputation attracts visitors intent on rediscovering their mojo in the many spas and therapy clinics that dot the isle. Some hotels offer exclusive therapeutic holidays and the feel-good factor extends to the flora - over 1,000 varieties of wild herbs grow on Losinj.
