The Dalmatian Coast is the bit of Croatia between the island of Rab and the Bay of Kotor. The dogs are named after the area, in case that was one of your first thoughts, but the name originally comes from the tribe of people who lived here originally.
Apart from having the same name as spotted dogs, this coast is known for its climate, which is Mediterranean on the coast, and alpine just inland of the coast, because the mountains roll right down to the sea in a picturesque way.
One of the best ways to see this coast is from the deck of a boat you've hired to island hop along the coast.
