Europe’s 10 Best Coastal Bike Rides
One of the best parts of exploring a region by bike is that you can experience incredible 360-degree views of the stunning countryside and coasts around you. And there’s truly nothing like cycling along the coast with the glittering sea beside you, the sun on your face, and an open road before you. Our professional cycling guides at Team DuVine have put together a list of some of the best coastal bike rides in Europe for your cycling pleasure.
Dalmatian Coast, Croatia
BEST ROUTE: Hvar Island | 22 km or 48 km
The best coastal views in Croatia can be found on the island of Hvar, one of our favorite towns on our Croatia bike tour. Head to the town of Hvar on the eastern end of the island and cycle to Stari Gra. You’ll cycle along a mountain ridge with stunning views of lavender fields and the sea on both sides of you. Take in views of mainland Croatia and the Dalmatian Archipelago in the distance, and on a clear day you can even see Italy. Extend your ride with a loop through the UNESCO Stari Grad plain, passing through charming inland villages like Pitve and Vrisnik and coastal settlements like Vrboska and Jelsa. Check out the Map
