BOOK NOW

Located on the magnificient east coast of the Adriatic sea, from Istrian peninsula to Dubrovnik, Croatia, with it's rocky coast, hidden coves and more than 1000 islands is a sailor’s paradise. It´s southern coasts are especially interesting featuring the ancient Greek port of Trogir or the beautiful city of Split.

The Dalmatian Coast boasts the barren and isolated Kornati archipelago and other islands with centuries of history, such as Korčula, Hvar or Brač, with the ‘Golden Horn’ beach that many consider to be the most beautiful in the whole country.

For those who prefer peace and quiet, there are plenty of other beaches without anything that might spoil the view, hidden coves, and rocky platforms.

Yachting and sailing in Croatia guarantees you will escape the crowds to the more secluded beaches and unknown, quite anchorages of some 1000 islands and islets along the Adriatic coast. Croatia is the closest Mediterranean destination to central Europe. It takes 2 hours by plane from London, 45 minutes from Munich.

The long chain of rugged islands off Croatia’s mountainous coast make this a cruising haven that is considered to be among the best in the world. Fine deep channels with abundant anchorage and a stable continental climate attract many sailing enthusiasts. There are no big waves and high sea. The conditons are perfect for nice and easy sailing. There are no long distance routes across the open sea. You can anchor anytime you want and take a swim.

Explore Croatia´s National and Nature Parks

Croatia has eight national parks: four in mountain areas (Risnjak, Paklenica, North Velebit and Plitvice lakes), and four in the coastal area (Kornati, Mljet, Brijuni and Krka). There are many nature parks of national and world importance like Velebit and Kopacki rit.

Plitvice Lakes is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. Plitvice lakes is included in World heritage list (UNESCO) in 1979. The 16 lakes that can be seen from the surface are grouped into the 12 Upper Lakes (Gornja jezera) and the four Lower Lakes (Donja jezera).

Kornati is one of the most indented island groups on the Mediterranean , a unique cluster of 150 islands, islets and cliffs spread over the central part of the Adriatic Sea in northern Dalmatia. The main island is Kornat which has holm oaks on the northeastern side and some cultivation of olives, figs, grapevines and citruses. There are remains of Illyrian settlements and Roman ruins on Toreta Hill. At the foot of the hill are the remains of an early Christian church. Remains of medieval fortifications can also be found on the islet of Panitula. On Piskera there is a 16th-century church.

Kornati Islands is Croatian yacht charter paradise. About Kornati islands George Bernard Shaw wrote: “On the last day of the Creation God desired to crown his work, and thus created the Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath”.

Telascica is located in the southeastern part of the island and with the surrounding waters as well as 13 islands, islets and rocks. The contrasts of nature is very expressed here with peaceful bays and rugged cliffs, forests of Aleppo pine on one side and Holm oak on the other side, the area of cultivated fields of vineyards and olive-trees, as well as the area of rocky meadows. The Mediterranean vegetation is represented in the park with more than 400 plant species as well as numerous rare and endemic plants that have been recorded. The underwater world is home to about 250 plants and 300 animal organisms, including the now depleted red coral and the carnivorous sponge.

Brijuni this archipelago consists of a group islands off the western coast of Istria, proclaimed a national park in 1983. Brijuni are well known for their mild Mediterranean climate with plenty of sun and humidity, whick is ideal for the lush vegetation and pleasant stay on the islands. The vegetation on the Brijuni se extremly luxuriant and the national park is full of tropical plants that form specially maintained tree-lined lanes, parks and gardens. There are also several archeological sites worth seeing. There is the 13th century AD St. Mary’s Church which was built by the Knights Templar. There are also two ancient Roman villa remains, from the 2nd Century BC and remains of a Byzantine palace. The last remain is Hill-fort which indicates a Bronze Age settlement on the island dating back to 14th century BC. On the island there is also a Safari Park, it is home to a variety of exotic animals which were given to the park as gifts from diplomatic partners.

Sailing in CroatiaThe Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea is considered the cleanest sea in Europe. Frequent winds include: Bura, a cold northerly wind, Jugo, a south wind with high precipitation, and Maestral, a cool north-westerly wind alleviating summer heat.

If you decide on a Croatia yacht charter vacations, there are some major harbor towns along the way that will make your trip worthwhile: Zadar, Šibenik, Split, Biograd, Trogir and Dubrovnik are among the most popular and all share a medieval look that is lost to many other places in the Mediterranean.

There is a luxury yacht charter segment in Croatia that caters to more exclusive needs, including businessmens, famous actors or singers who want a change of scenery. Hvar in particular is popular with the international jet set as more and more celebrities come to moor or charter luxury yachts in the region.

Many Croatian marinas are close to historical towns replete with museums, galleries, palaces and monasteries plus excellent restaurants. Croatia’s marina facilities are excellent. They include reception, exchange office, restaurant, toilets and showers, grocery store, parking lot, repair shop, crane, etc. It is recommended that you reserve 24 hours in advance or arrive at the marina in early afternoon as berth places fill up quickly. Most marinas are open all year.

The best sailing season in Croatia is late spring (April through June) and early fall (September through October). The sea is calm, the weather mild and there are fewer crowds. July and August are ideal months for sailing vacation and swimming. Croatia’s natural beauty of its undersea world lure many divers. The diversity of life, the monumental underwater walls, reefs, shipwrecks and plane wrecks, as well as archaeological sites are an additional bonus.

Climate in Croatia varies from continental in the interior regions and Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast, with some fluctuations within these climatic zones.

Mediterranean climate region is predominant on the islands and in the coastal areas from Istria and Kvarner on the north to Dalmatia on the south. In summer the average air temperature is 24°C-26°C. However, the interior areas of Istria are somewhat cooler, with the average temperature being about 22°C. Sea temperatures fluctuate between 8°C in winter and 27°C in summer because of warm sea currents. July and August are the hottest months, with the air temperature reaching as high as 35°C.

The sunniest island in Croatia is Hvar which is sunny over 2700 hours per year. Split, Vela Luka (on Korčula Island) and Dubrovnik are the next sunniest spots in Dalmatia.

Continental climate region is separated from the coast by the grand Dinaric Alps. Croatia’s inland experiences totally different weather patterns.

Climate in Croatia’s interior areas is typified by a fair amount of snow during winter months. The average temperatures in January hover around 0°C to -2°C, whereas the monthly average for July reaches the 22°C mark, although recent years have seen unusually hot summers. In general, climate in Croatia is ideal for summer beach holidays with 10-12 hours of sunshine per day, a small number of rainy days, and comfortable temperatures.

Croatian Food and Drink Local cuisine is important in Croatia and regions like Dalmatia or Istria where tourists come to visit and enjoy the fresh ingredients such as sea food, olives, wine, goat cheese and meet specialties such as roasted pig on a spit or grilled lamb.

The Adriatic coast is renowned for its variety of seafood dishes, and Italian influences are found here as well as in Istria. You’ll find exquisite cakes and deserts all over the country. Croatia produces plenty of wine, with the best reds generally coming from the Peljesac peninsula on the coast, and the best whites usually produced in eastern Slavonia and in Istria.

Specialities:

  • Prsut i paski sir (air-dried ham similar to Italian prosciutto and sheep’s cheese from the island of Pag) platters are served as an appetiser.
  • Salata od hobotnice (octopus salad) is made from octopus, potato, onion, chopped parsley, olive oil, crushed garlic and lemon juice.
  • Crni rizot (black risotto) is made from cuttlefish cooked in its own ink.
  • Janjetina (roast lamb) is popular all over Croatia, and it’s not unusual to see whole lamb roasting on a spit at roadside eateries.
  • Tartufi (truffles) feature heavily on the menu in Istria.

Reasons to visit


Sunsets

One of the sunniest places in the Mediterranean. During summer the sun does not go down till well after 9pm. Croatia is well known for its spectacular sunsets.

Coffee

Cafes are everywhere in Croatia. Croatians drink 5 kg of coffee per person annually, that’s 22,500 tons of coffee per year, and they spend 2.25 million hours having coffee each year, that’s half an hour a day per person. And they take their sweet time doing it :) We guarantee you the best espresso you will ever taste.

Ancient Architecture

Croatia is rich in history, dating back couple of thousand years. Roman forum in Zadar, Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Roman arena in Pula (sixth largest Roman Amphitheathre in the world)… Remnants from centuries ago, there are ancient & historic ruins in nearly every town.

Mediterranean cuisine

Croatian olive oil ranks amongst the best in the world. We could write books on Croatian cuisine but no words will do it justice… You just have to try it for yourself. It’s as close to heaven as you can get (at least on this Earth) :)

Dubrovnik

Game of Thrones. Say no more :)

Crystal clear water

Most of the beaches in Croatia are not the powdery white sand type but pebbles, resulting in amazingly clear waters, unbelievably turquoise in color. You won’t believe your eyes.

Need to know


Currency

Make sure you always have local currency with you (kuna). Not all places will take euros. This includes restaurants, shops and even some hotels. Cash in Croatia is always a better option than a credit card. ATM’s are everywhere.

Sea urchins

They only live in clear, unpolluted waters – a testament to a Croatian crystal clear sea, but if you don’t want to pick huge thorns out of your foot or find yourself in the hospital, put on special shoes or examine the sea floor carefully before entering the water.

Time zone

Central European Time (CET). Croatia is one hour plus than Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in London, six hours plus than New York time (EST), nine hours plus than California time. Daylight saving time is implemented in Croatia. The last Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour; the last Sunday in October they are set back one hour.

Pets

Dogs and cats, accompanied by their owner, need to have an International certificate from a registered veterinarian stating that at least 15 days and not more than six months have passed since their vaccination against rabies.

Antiquities

Croatia does protect its antiquities. You are not allowed to take objects of ethnological, architectural or historical value out of the country. The penalties could be severe.

Electricity

The voltage in Croatia is 220V, the frequency is 50HZ. Plugs are two round prongs. All is well for continental Europeans but Americans have flat prongs and 120volt/60HZ appliances. Make sure you have the adapter and the transformer.
