Customer Travel Tip: In the town between Entrance 2 and House Boro there is a restaurant that serves very reasonably priced pizzas and other dishes. It can get quite busy as it does seem to be the only restaurant, but its very good food for the money. There is also a supermarket in the same town which sells essentials. Its about 10 minutes further in town than the restaurant.

Liked: Breathtaking scenery, definitely somewhere to visit if you are in Croatia.

Disliked: The sheer volume of people got me down a bit. You'd be trying to take in the beauty of the place and having to stop every 2 seconds whilst someone in front took a trillion photos of something. Would be a lot more enjoyable if people abandoned their obsession with photographing everything and just looked with their eyes.
