  Dear Traveler,

The crash of waves on sandy shores. The scent of brisk salty breezes. The flavors of the day's fresh catch... No matter which coastline you explore in the world, an incomparable sensory feast awaits.

From the medieval villages of Croatia's idyllic Dalmatian Coast to the rugged driftwood-strewn beaches of Washington's San Juan Islands, we've uncovered the best coastal locales to bike, hike, savor awe-inspiring vistas and soak up local culture. So if you're ready to add a little surf to your active pursuits on the turf, dive into one of our incredible seaside escapes this summer!

To book your coastal getaway, give us a call at 800-462-2848. Our Trip Consultants are available daily 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. PT. Or visit www.backroads.com.

Hope to see you out there!
