Ist

Nestled off the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia, the island of Ist is a truly unique and beautiful destination. One of 118 islands and islets in the Adriatic Sea, Ist is the 22nd largest island in Croatia, measuring in at around 10.63 km. Famous for its breathtaking views, peaceful atmosphere, and excellent natural attractions, it's no wonder Ist is a popular destination for nature lovers and those seeking seclusion.
Located to the north of central Dalmatia, near its sister island of Molat, Ist is mostly flat and covered in olive groves and pine shores. The island's landscape is made up of a large bay, a natural wonder in and of itself. Despite its stunning beauty, Ist remains largely unspoiled by tourism, maintaining its rustic charm.
Fishing and agriculture make up the majority of Ist's economy. In the small villages scattered across the island, visitors can find locally made olive oil, wine, honey, and preserves, as well as delicious seafood dishes.
In addition to its stunning beaches and untouched nature, Ist is known for its rich culture and traditions, which attract many visitors. With a mild Mediterranean climate, the island is a great destination any time of year. Whether you're looking to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the region, explore its history, or experience the unique culture of the Croatian people, Ist is the perfect place to spend a few relaxing days.
