Some safety concerns may arise, regarding the choice of destination, ways of getting there and having a vacation you wanted!
We all want maximum safety with maximum leisure, right? When we say that sailing vacation is the best possible choice, you may think we're biased. Understandable, but there are more than a few objective arguments to support our statement! Read on to find out!
Top 5 reasons why sailing in Croatia is the best possible choice for your holiday
Croatia is one of the safest destinations
Croatia has had one of the best responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Measures taken by the Croatian government were effective in containing the spread of the virus and keeping the citizens safe and healthy. In the past weeks, new cases are reduced to a minimum. That allowed for borders to open and we can welcome our guests again!
Your plans for travelling this summer are back on track, but you're worried about crowds? Well, privacy and distance are one of the most talked-about perks of sailing holidays, even before coronavirus started spreading. You are on a chartered yacht with your friends and family, free to sail from one island to another, to avoid crowded places and have a holiday to remember.
It's so easy to get here
Recently we have welcomed our first guests and they all have one thing in common – they are absolutely excited to be in Croatia. Our dear friends from Switzerland drove all the way to Croatia and after a „short“ 13-hour ride they were on their yacht, ready to sail the Adriatic. After asking them how did their trip go they said that there were no problems at all, crossing the borders was super easy. Also, they have mentioned that they wished more people would know just how simple it is to come to Croatia! If there are no flights from your place of residence, hop into your car and get here!
Right now, international flights from and to Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf are on schedule and soon flight from more countries are expected! Stay tuned!
Vast selection of yachts
By having one of the worlds largest charter fleets, it's safe to say that Croatia has to offer something to cater to everyone's taste. Sailing and motor yachts, catamarans, skippered, bareboat, crewed, you name it. You can find your dream yacht with real-time availability here!
Croatia is one of the leading nautical destinations in the world. Why? Because it provides over 2 000 km of coastline with over 1 000 islands. Oh, and the sunniest place in all of Europe is here – the island of Hvar. Great wines, great food, pristine Adriatic sea with many secrets to unravel. Plenty of things to do that don't include most popular destinations, too. With a little luck, you'll find a bay just for yourself and spend a day of swimming, diving, snorkelling, sunbathing, or whatever you want!
To quote great Anthony Bourdain:
"I can't believe it took me this long... it took me this long to get here. It's awesome... The next big thing is Croatia! If you haven't been here yet, you are an idiot! I'm an idiot!"
As it was easy to notice, people in Croatia took this situation very seriously. That goes for charter operators as well. With borders opening and guests arriving, precautionary steps were taken, including adjustments to the check-in process, minimizing the contact in charter bases, cleanliness standards are taken to an even higher level and mandatory sanitation of yachts, and more.
So, in short, there are plenty of benefits to choosing a sailing holiday in Croatia. Safety, crystal clear, blue Adriatic sea, amazing food and wines, ease of arrival are just some of the reasons to come here.
