Sail Northern Dalmatia
Rich cultural heritage combined with beautiful beaches, spectacular national parks and deserted islands, makes this part of Dalmatia an amazing sailing destination.
Along the coast are beautifully preserved medieval towns poised above some of the clearest waters in Europe, while offshore are myriad islands adorned with ancient stone villages and enticing coves.
The region increasingly serves both as a focus for the party crowd and as a get-away-from-it-all destination, with a burgeoning roster of festivals dovetailing neatly with stirring scenery and soothing beaches.
Sail Central Dalmatia
A captivating pearl on Adriatic Coast – Central Dalmatia has a rich maritime history and tradition.
However, for many people, what makes Central Dalmatia so special are the islands. Islands make a huge part of Croatian geographical and national identity.
The nearest, Brač, most often recognized for its famous Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape) beach is an island of exceptional beauty that will leave you with a lasting impression.
West of Brač lays the island of Šolta. Although there is little of cultural interest here, those lucky enough to be sailing along the south side of the island will find several idyllic bays that are accessible only by sea. South of Brač rises the island of Hvar, home to Central Dalmatia’s most exclusive party destination, Hvar Town..
Farther out to sea still lies wild, windswept Vis, Croatia’s most distant inhabited island. There are only two real settlements here: Vis Town and Komiža, the latter making the best starting point for a day trip to Modra Spilja (Blue Cave) on the island of Biševo.
FOLLOWING THE FOOTSTEPS OF ISLANDS HISTORY
Powerful ancient nations and the later great conquerors, those who made the pages of history, have not only left a mark on the Dalmatian mainland but also on the islands.
The first signs of civilization in the islands date back thousands of years to the dwellings of the Illyrians. Then the Greeks appeared, as can be seen in the name of the islands of Hvar and Vis – Pharos and Issa, while Brač was a turning point in their commerce.
The following people who made their mark in the field of culture, architecture and religion were the Romans, Venetians, Austro-Hungarians, and the French.
Monuments and remains witness the great transformations from one culture to another. These transformations are evident in every aspect of life, and shaped the people and culture of today. (Source: dalmatia.hr)
Sail Southern Dalmatia
Sailing and exploring south Dalmatian coast will bring you memories you will not forget.
The pleasant climate and steady winds makes the Dubrovnik Riviera ideal for scenic coastal cruising.
Whether you are searching for scattered islands, fresh local food combined with tasteful wines, or perhaps seductive sandy shores, this region will not fail you.
To The South
Dubrovnik, as majestic as it is, it is not only highlight of southern Dalmatia.
Cavtat, with pine-scented hiking trails, or a garden full of exotic trees in Trsteno, are only beginning of richness which this region provides.
Whether you are visiting ancient salt factory, or you are into world-class oyster feast and superb red wine from the Pelješac Penninsula, you will not fail if you choose southern route.
14 days sailing itinerary is best choice if you want to see best of Adriatic. Don’t forget to explore Marco Polo’s birthplace on Korčula or Odysseus’ mythical cave on Mljet.
Elaphiti Islands is another pearl; this archipelago northwest of Dubrovnik makes a perfect escape from the summer crowds. Only the three largest – Koločep, Lopud and Šipan – are permanently inhabited.
Along the way you’ll find some of the best windsurfing and sailing in Europe, centuries-old houses, millennia-old caves, fresh seafood, and always, everywhere, blue and crystal clear sea.
