Croatia

The Adriatic

Set in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, the Dalmatian coastline stretching from Montenegro up to Croatia is quite simply breathtaking, particularly when explored by yacht. The area boasts over 1200 islands, of which only 70 are inhabited. The impressive northern Dalmatia includes the stunning Kornati archipelago, also known as the Stomorski islands, home to a National Marine Park which is often referred to as a ‘nautical paradise’. Tranquil coves, crystal clear waters, wonderful culture and historic architecture make the Dalmatian coastline quintessential cruising ground.

Ports of Call
Day 01 - Dubrovnik

Begin your charter in the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik. Nestled behind its huge ramparts, take a stroll around the ancient city walls for an overview of the Old Town and discover Dubrovnik’s many historic and cultural treasures that have earned it the designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the major attractions including the Rector’s Palace, the Romanesque, Gothic, Dominican and Franciscan Monasteries, and Sponza Palace. Enjoy local cuisine at one of the many restaurants in the Prjeko area, which comes to life in the early evening.

Day 02 - Dubrovnik – Mljet - 35nm

The second day of your charter will bring you to the beautiful Dalmatian island of Mljet- one of Croatia's top sights, no wonder it feels like a secret paradise with very few residents and a pristine national park that covers half of the island in luscious pine trees.

A good sail to the north of the island of Mljet brings you to the small town of Pomena. From here it is a walk or boat ride to the two lakes Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero. These lakes are connected together by a channel. You can wander along the lakes on paths shaded by pine trees, ride a bicycle through the magnificent park, kayak the lakes or simply swim in the gloriously clear blue water.

In the middle of Veliko Jezero is an islet with a Benedictine Monastery. Originally built in the 12th century it's now a restaurant accessible by yacht. These lakes and the monastery are a highlight of Croatia and are a favourite with everyone.

 

Day 03 - Mljet – Vis - 35nm

On the third day of your charter you will sail to Vis town. Anchor in the protected bay and take in the magnificent mountains, fortresses and the stately buildings. You may find that Vis is like Croatia's quieter version of Capri. Despite its Mediterranean beauty, bountiful olive vines and ancient ruins Vis still has virtually no tourists!

Vis town is on the southern slopes of Gradina Hill, situated in the quiet bay of Luka. Again it has only been open to yachts since 1989 and is therefore relatively unspoiled. We would highly recommend sampling its local wines and produce.

Day 04 - Vis - 14nm

After a great sail across Lastouski Kanal you will arrive at the island of Hvar and the main town of the same name. This is a beautiful town with a wide open central plaza, a magnificent clock tower at one end and a small fishing harbour at the other. Today is party day, head for Hvar town and moor in the bay amidst the bustle and charms of this historic city. Make your reservation at Carpe Diem and spend the rest of the day exploring. Enjoy spa facilities of Suncani Hvar before you get ready for a night on the town, or visit Hotel Amfora where you can relax on the private beach. Dine at Yaksa and enjoy the best of Carpe Diem.

Day 05 - Hvar – Brac - 14nm

After a busy few days partying in Hvar cruise to the quieter island of Brač. Take the tender ashore to Croatia’s most famous beach – Bol. A long strip of sand, the beach changes with the tide and is an ideal location for a spot of windsurfing. Take use of the water toys on board and make the beautiful location your playground for the day

Day 07 - Brac – Split - 10nm

Cruise to the old town of Split calm your spirits on deck as you head to Split, admire the villages on the island of Solta. Disembark at Split and take the time to wander around

Diocletian’s Palace and lunch at Restaurant Bruna before taking your flight back to reality
