In the heart of the Dalmatian Islands lies the Marina Preko, a heady combination of glistening, clear waters and picture-perfect backdrop of mountains.
Aside from the typical sailing and yachting facilities on offer, this season the bars, restaurants and shopping areas surrounding the marina have picked up their game for domestic and foreign visitors who have stumbled across the centre of traditional Croatian lifestyle.
In this small town when it is time to grab a bite, the restaurant Jardin clears up with the punters. Overlooking the small marina, the taverna-style restaurant is famed for its veggie dishes. But the carnivorous don't have to worry, there is also a succulent meaty menu too – this is Croatia after all – but vegetables get special attention, so try them and you won't be disappointed.
