      3. Outstanding Nautical Infrastructure

      In addition to the 1,000 islands and indented coast, the Adriatic coast of Croatia is also recognized by an extensive nautical infrastructure, making sailing safe and enjoyable at the same time. There are more than 50 marinas in addition to leisure harbours and ports. This means that there are more than 100 amazing locations where one can berth along the Croatian coast. Generally, Croatian marinas are well-designed and positioned in incredible locations, in towns or stunning bays.

These bases represent the best choices regarding good highway, airport and railroad connections to the rest of the country and Europe.

      4. Sailing Conditions

      Croatian sailing season runs from April to November and is quite long. The best period to come to Croatia depends on the kind of vacation that you would like to have. In July and August, periods of calm prevail - ideal for those who like smooth waters for enjoying the summer fun activities and water sports, or relaxed vacation with the family.

      Winds are predominantly westerly in the summer (Mistral and Tramontana). If sailing is your primary interest then Croatia is a place for you during the early summer and spring with light to moderate winds in May and June.

      September and October will provide you with the right winds to set your sails and trim your jib with prolonged periods of the Bora (strong north wind) and the Scirocco (humid east-southeast wind). While bura and jugo each in their own way offer sailors excitement and challenge, maestral guarantees pure pleasure during which you can give yourself to the sea without fear. Sailing during the winter on the Adriatic is a unique adventure as well, but make sure that you charter a boat with the heating and prepare yourself for possible high winds and rough seas.

      Yacht charter in Croatia

      2,500+ hours of sunshine every year make Croatia one of the sunniest regions in Europe. The Croatian coast has a Mediterranean climate and which means that summers are hot, and winters are mild. The typical sailing season is from early April to late October while the peak season is in July and August.

You could experience summer temperatures with occasional cold fronts and showers. However, these months are perfect for you if you want peace and quiet and decent sailing winds.

      6. Preserved Nature

      Croatia is among the most persevered regions in Europe. The slogan of the Croatian Tourist Board has been used for years and is actually “Croatia - the Mediterranean as it once was”. That is one of the reasons why Sailing in Croatia is popular. On most islands, particularly those more isolated from the coast, for instance, Lastovo and Vis, the authentic Mediterranean surroundings are well preserved.

      In a relatively small place, Croatia boasts as many as 8 national parks and four of them are situated on the Adriatic coast – Brijuni, Kornati, Krka and Mijet. Out of 11 nature parks, two of them are situated on the Croatian coast - Lastovo Island and Telašica Bay on Dugi Otok Island.

      7. Rich History & Culture

      Well, crystal clear blue sea and 1,000 islands are not the only thing that Croatia has to offer. It has more than you would expect. Several monuments eyewitness Croatia’s rich history and many of which are classified under the UNESCO World’s Heritage List. There are entire towns and cities that date back to the ancient Greek and the ancient Roman times while the Venetian rule and the later Austro-Hungarian rule also left a beautiful mark on the architecture and visual identity of many coastal towns.

      8. Chartering a Yacht in Croatia is Affordable

      Yacht charter in Croatia

      The prices of sailboats and catamaran charters in Croatia are set per boat and per week. When dividing it by the number of people that the yacht can accommodate, it turns out that it isn’t expensive at all. Moreover, the prices are even lower when you prefer not to travel in the peak season.

      9. Mediterranean Cuisine
