The coasts are bordered with islands. There are 1,185 islands, made up of islets and rocks. And there is 2,487-miles worth of coast. Only 66 islands are inhabited. Krk is the largest, Pag the the most desert, Hvar the longest and Brac the highest. They are all different, with superb small towns (Krk, Rab, Cres, Losinj, Pag, Hvar, Korcula), National Parks (Kornati, Mljet), and beaches of sand, gravel or rock. You can practise sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving and nudism.
