Yacht Charter Croatia

The country

Croatia, with its long coastline on the Adriatic Sea, includes more than 1000 islands. Its capital Zagreb with the medieval upper town of Gornji Grad is located inland. The most famous coastal town is Dubrovnik, which is surrounded by a city wall from the 16th century.

The climate

In the Dalmatia region on the Adriatic Sea, the climate is Mediterranean with warm summers and mild but rainy winters. The north-east and east of the country, on the other hand, are characterised by a continental climate with large differences in temperature between fairly dry, hot summers and snowy, cold winters.

From a culinary point of view, Croatia offers everything your heart desires, from local, down-to-earth cuisine to international dishes.

Special weather conditions make Croatia so attractive for sailors: Especially in the months from April to June and September to November, the winds Yugo and Bora occur more frequently. Yugo, which comes from the southeast, often brings rain. The Bora blows from the north-east and is a strong, rather dry down wind, which can reach 110 knots and more, especially in a low in the southern Mediterranean. Divers and snorkelers also get their money's worth in Croatia. On the second largest peninsula Pelješac, for example, you can dive to the wreck of a German torpedo boat that sank in 1944, and at Vis a sunken bomber.

The country's towns also have a lot to offer. Split and Dubrovnik, for example, have ancient buildings that are part of the UNESCO world heritage. ACI Marina Split is one of the best marinas in Croatia. In its vicinity is the Marina Kastela and the international airport Split/Kastela, which is also close to Trogir.

The wind

In summer the coastline is relatively windless and therefore also suitable for beginners. At night and in the early morning it is usually windless or lightly windy.

More than 1000 islands and almost 6000 km of coastline make Croatia one of the most sought-after sailing areas in Europe. The Mediterranean climate with warm summer months and mostly light thermal winds from the north-west guarantee an unforgettable holiday at sea and at sea. With its location on the northern Mediterranean Sea and the optimal transport connections for car, plane and now also Flixbus, Croatia is the perfect starting point for your yacht vacation. In the crystal clear water on clean sandy, pebble and rocky beaches you can refresh yourself, lonely bays invite you to a relaxing retreat. Many coastal villages are true open-air museums - the picturesque fishing villages will enchant you too.

The Mljet National Park in the south of Dalmatia is a real insider tip. From Dubrovnik there are ferry connections to the island, whose attraction are two salt lakes, which are connected with each other and with the sea. The Brijuni archipelago consists of a group of 14 islands of particular beauty with a well-preserved Mediterranean flora and famous archaeological sites. In the safari park exotic animals such as zebras, camels, Indian cattle, llamas and elephants live in the wild. In 1983 the Brijuni archipelago was declared a national park.

An absolute highlight of the North Adriatic region are the Kornati Islands with their rocky reefs, crevices and corals. With about 150 islands and reefs, the Kornati Islands are the largest and densest archipelago in the Croatian Adriatic and are only inhabited seasonally. In the north-west of the group is the island of Dugi Otok, to the east are Pašman, Vrgada and Murter. The largest of these sparsely populated islands is Kornat, which gives the group its name.

On almost 100 beaches in Croatia the "Blue Flag", the seal of approval for cleanliness and water quality, is waving.
