Highs + Lows

  • You can choose what kind of holiday you want. Either completely doing nothing, having a little party get away or a super healthy and physically active one. I chose the latter. Two work outs a day never hurt anyone but my butt!

  • You are on a smallish island, so the big choice of activities and places to eat is crucial. Daily schedule is packed! Wether you want to paddle board, jet ski, have a massage, do sound meditation, hear a talk on mindfulness or take an adult swimming class, chances are you won’t get bored.

  • The Croatian sea is absolutely gorgeous and you can find lots of spots completely for yourself on the island and experience the “raw” Croatian coast.

Šibenik, Croatia

The teachers and coaches were on an amazing level. Also good for complete beginners.

They filmed Game Of Thrones there, so it’s pretty striking.

Go to Sibenik and check out the gorgeous old town

Krka National Park, Lozovac, Croatia
