Sail Away: Croatia Guide With Jelena Weir

Eat, Travel and Stay Like a Local

Skip the tourist queues, and step into living like a local. A guide to Croatia with DISSH friend and muse @jelena.nyc.


Stay At • A Remote Island

We love to avoid the touristy cities and disappear into the many islands in Croatia for a more authentic experience. On islands like Silba, hotels don’t exist and your Airbnb hosts usually live in the same house.
Eat Like A Local • Fresh Seafood

The best Croatian dishes are those fresh from the sea! I order or cook with seafood at every chance I get. My favourite local dishes are black ink risotto, or the catch of the day. Hidden Treasure • Old Town

One of my favorite things about Croatia is that every city has an Old Town. I love to get lost in these historical cities.  Sunset Drinks • Alavija

My favorite sunsets are spent at Alavija on the island of Silba - sipping an Aperol Spritz. I spent many summers here as a little girl. Best Tip • Days On The Water

Renting a boat is the best way to make the most of your time in Croatia. There are so many beaches and hidden caves to discover, with close islands that you can hop between in a single day. I recommend anchoring in a cove with your favourite book, before sailing into the sunset. Shop Jelena's Croatia looks here.
