The Adriatic Sea, as the most beautiful bay of the Mediterranean Sea, gently splashes upon the shores of Dalmatia and its thousand islands, islets, and cliffs. The transparency of the Adriatic Sea is greatest around the outermost Dalmatian islands, where it reaches 56 meters in depth. The depth of the sea on the outer side of the Dalmatian islands is up to 200 meters and the greatest depth of 1400 meters was recorded in the southern basin.
The largest rivers in Dalmatia are the Neretva, Cetina, Krka, and Zrmanja. These rivers are suitable for canoeing and rafting, and since they flow through rocky areas, they present true oases. Their riverbeds are of exceptional natural beauty.
