Where Ancient Cities Meet The Sparkling Adriatic Shoreline


Croatia stands as a Mediterranean jewel, adorned with numerous hidden treasures along its seemingly boundless coastline, offering a plethora of breathtaking cruising opportunities. With its abundance of unspoiled islands, charming marinas, historic urban centers, quaint villages, and inviting beaches, Croatia is quickly emerging as a favored destination for yacht charters.


A destination of timeless allure, Croatia draws an increasing number of yacht enthusiasts to its dreamlike Dalmatian Coast every summer. The Adriatic waters sparkle with untouched islands, inviting countless anchorages, making this coastline an absolute must-visit. Of the 1,185 islands scattered across the region, only 66 are inhabited, ensuring seclusion and privacy for those seeking a tranquil escape. However, the Dalmatian archipelago boasts remarkable diversity, with a plethora of enchanting coves, bays, and beaches waiting to be explored, alongside picturesque harbors and medieval ports.


The most captivating stretch of this coastline lies between Split and Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik's ancient city walls and baroque architecture, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offer an unforgettable experience. Situated at the southern tip of Croatia, the city's rich history and recent fame as King's Landing in HBO's Game of Thrones series attract discerning travelers eager to stroll its white limestone streets and explore its museums and art galleries.


Among the sun-drenched islands awaiting discovery are Hvar, Vis, Korčula, and Brač. Korčula, steeped in culture and history, is believed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo and is renowned for its lush vineyards and olive groves. Brač and Zlatni Rat offer ideal settings for water sports, with excellent windsurfing conditions and exceptional scuba diving sites, respectively. Hvar, one of the most fashionable and beautiful islands in the archipelago, boasts designer boutiques, exquisite wineries, and vibrant nightlife.


Beyond Croatia's dazzling beaches lies a wealth of exhilarating inland adventures and romantic medieval towns, set against a backdrop of rolling hills. The region's temperate climate, clear skies, and diverse flora make it a sought-after charter destination.
