Top 3 Cities to Explore on a Croatia Yacht Charter
Croatia is one of the main yachting destinations in the Mediterranean with well over 700 islands, mostly uninhabited. With crystal clear waters, stunning marine life, vibrant culture and traditional villages, the country is one of the top summer destinations in the world. Neighboring Montenegro and the bay of Kotor will also be one of the main attractions during a yacht charter in Croatia.
Dubrovnik called the “Pearl of the Adriatic” is an ancient town surrounded by high walls. No cars are allowed inside the old town, making your arrival in the harbour by yacht the best way to visit. Many of the city’s old stone buildings were reconstructed with historical accuracy following the nation’s war for independence in the 1990s, so a stroll through the streets feels like you are walking back through time.
The island city of Korčula is also rich in history, although its narrow streets now are lined with modern restaurants and boutiques. Here, you can explore a home believed to have once been inhabited by Marco Polo, or sit and celebrity watch at a waterfront café, as Korčula is a popular backdrop for many film directors.
When you’ve had enough of civilization, your yacht will whisk you off to explore the less populated islands. Don’t miss Hvar, called “the Island of Lavender”, although it is equally well known for its red wine. Cruising on, your Captain will find the perfect spot to spend the night at anchor in a scenic bay. You’ll awake to crystal-clear water that’s ideal for an early morning swim, followed by delicious breakfast on the aft deck surrounded by Croatia’s natural beauty.
