Where to Sail in Croatia
With a breath-taking coastline, crystal-clear waters, and over a thousand islands, a sailing vacation in Croatia is a dream.
It’s a place that’s perfect to explore by sea, with the feel of the French Riviera a half-century ago. It’s possible to find tranquil anchorages, even during the height of the season when the weather conditions are idyllic.
The country’s second-largest city, Split, is an ideal place to start a yacht tour, with some of the most popular and well-known islands, Hvar, Brac, and Korcula, only a short day sailing trip away. The city itself has lots to offer, dating back to the late 3rd century, birthed when Roman emperor Diocletian decided to build his retirement residence here. Today, the maze-like palace boasts some of the most well-preserved Roman architecture in the world. There’s also an international airport in the nearby town of Kaštela close to Trogir, less than a 30-minute drive away with flights to from all major European cities, which makes it very accessible for vacations in Croatia.
It’s no wonder that an increasing number of visitors are choosing to travel to Croatia, embark on a Croatia yacht charter and enjoy a sailing experience every year, but with so many options, where do you go?
