Increasingly popular as a summer vacation destination for luxury yacht charterers, Croatia yacht charter offers visitors over a thousand islands with distinct vegetation, charming old ports, seaside villages and a remarkably clean water full of life. The Mediterranean country is one of the ecologically best preserved parts of Europe. Croatia’s northern part of the coastline can be described as somewhat tranquil, whereas the southern coast, also known as the Dalmatian Coast, is livelier, busier, with plenty of beautiful luxury superyachts on display. There is a vast selection of outstanding charter yachts available in Croatia, ranging from smaller and sportier motor yachts, catamarans, lovely sailing yachts, through to imposing luxury mega yachts.
Hvar in Croatia
A huge selection of destinations and spectacular sites to discover during Croatia yacht charter make it a wonderful choice for a summer vacation and many places are well worth a short daily trip inland. Risnjak, Paklenica, the Plitvice Lakes and Northern Velebit in the mountainous area are just some of the natural wonders of this country. In the coastal area the Kornati Archipelago, the island of Mljet, the Brijuni Archipelago and the Krka waterfalls showcase Croatia as a true jewel of the Mediterranean.
For party-goes Dubrovnik and Hvar are the best places to be, with numerous night-clubs, fine dining restaurants and of course the beautiful people. For those wanting to escape the bustling cities after an excellent night out, there are plenty of hideaways around the many surrounding islands and islets.
Island of Brac - Bol - Croatia
To add even more interest, cruise the azure blue waters of the Adriatic and discover the island which is one of the last habitats of the griffon vulture in Europe. If you are a devoted nature lover you can swim in the sea with an adopted dolphin or, if you are particularly lucky, encounter the mysterious and rare Mediterranean monk seal. Croatia is also a home to numerous monuments and sites found on the UNESCO World Heritage List, such as the Diocletian Palace and Medieval Split, Old Town of Dubrovnik, the Early-Christian Euphrasius Basilica Complex in Porec, the historical Core of Trogir, the National Park of Plitvice, Starigrad Plain or St Jacob’s Catherdral in Sibenik.
Delicious Croatian coastal cuisine is a mixture of Greek, Roman, Illyrian and Mediterranean influences, featuring fresh seafood specialities, prepared in a number of different ways accompanied by a selection of vegetables, olive oil, prosciutto or fresh bread. The meals are then coupled with local wines, such as Babic, Malvasia, Prosecco and Vrbnik Zlahtina as well as a selection of liqueurs like the popular Maraschino.
