Croatian places to catch the sunset

Despite the sun setting every day, it's usually not until we're on holiday that we take time to savour this natural spectacle. If you're headed to Croatia, you won't be disappointed with the skies complimentary light shows, which can be appreciated all along the country's long west-facing Adriatic coastline.

No two sunsets are ever the same and whether you grab a blanket and settle on the sand or prefer to head to a bar along the harbour, this moment of fleeting beauty will be exclusive to you.


Filled with cobbled streets and coloured houses, Rovinj is regarded as the most romantic city in Croatia.

From the edge of the harbour you'll enjoy stunning views of the charming old town and bell tower as the sun gently slips into the horizon. Along the pier are many restaurants and bars to perch outside, with small boats bobbing in the foreground adding a more scenic touch.

Or you could say goodbye to the sun on a gentle evening cruise aboard a traditional boat around the old town. And kayaking out onto the open water on an organised sunset paddle tour is a fine way to take in the sights from the sea.


With its wealth of ancient ruins, you can be sure that the Romans enjoyed Pula's spectacular sunsets long before you arrived. You can watch the sunset through the limestone arches of the imposing 1st-century oval amphitheatre overlooking the harbour, which remains a popular meeting point for locals. Alternatively, head down to the waterfront and watch the cargo ships disappear into the warm orange glow of the setting sun.

For panoramic vistas from out on the ocean, take a sunset paddle boarding excursion around Fratarski Island and Frasker Island, where you can gently glide across the calm water as you enjoy of the coastline and dipping sun.


The ancient city of Dubrovnik is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean, boasting marbled streets and baroque buildings. From the top of the city walls, visitors can watch the sunset over the beautiful skyline adorned with church tops. Or for a seated view, the Dubrovnik Cable Car up to Mount Srd also offers unrivalled vistas of the old city and numerous surrounding islands.

There are plenty of bars outside the city walls overlooking the ocean. Accessed through secret holes in the wall, perch along the rocky ledges with a glass of local wine and enjoy sweeping sea views as the sun goes down.


Located on a sloping hillside adorned with pine forests and olive groves lining the waterfront, Cavtat is much smaller and more tranquil than nearby Dubrovnik. The harbour, lined with bars and restaurants, is the place to be come sunset as you enjoy expansive views of the water dotted with ships.

Enjoy a short sunset cruise with a glass of wine in the bay of Cavtat before heading back to the historic harbour for a delicious dinner or evening stroll along the promenade.


Alfred Hitchcock claimed it to be the best sunset in the world and with music in the background from Zadar's Sea Organ and uninterrupted views over the Adriatic Sea, it's definitely a sunset that's hard to beat. Make like the acclaimed director and pull up a chair outside one of the tavernas along the waterfront, and sip on maraschino as the evening closes in.

For the best panoramic view, climb to the top of the St Anastasia Bell Tower in the middle of the city and watch the spectacular colours and light reflect across the ancient settlement before finally falling into the sea.
