The article is titled “Island-hopping to die for”.Here is an extract from the article:
“You don’t have to go far to find places listed in the book Unforgettable Islands To Escape To Before You Die. It only takes a couple of hours to scoot away and explore everything from snowy Arctic wastes to balmy Mediterranean paradises. Here are some must-sees…
The Southern Dalmatian Islands of Croatia (pictured) are some of the most untouched parts of the Mediterranean. Until recently, many of them were closed by the military. But this doesn’t mean they lack charm.
You can walk the cobbled streets of the fortified town of Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo, eat fresh fish in the hidden harbour of Lastovo or visit the Blue Cave – so called because of the effect of sunlight shining through an underwater entrance.
The best way to see the islands is by boat. Sail Croatia (www.sailcroatia.net) offers good prices on skippered yachts.
At night you can moor in a quiet spot and eat on board or throw your anchor closer to shore and hang out in a restaurant.
During the day, explore the islands or sail to a deserted cove to swim in bright turquoise water. “
