Croatia: Hvar Island
The entire Dalmatian coast of Croatia is dotted with hundreds of islands, large and small, stretched along the coast. No exploration would be complete without experiencing them. Hvar is one of the most beautiful and is famous for being the sunniest of all in Croatia (also great restaurants and nightlife, expensive yachts galore). Medieval towns, rocky hills covered with fields and fields of lavender, seascape views in all directions, and basically a single lane road running the entire length of the island.
