It would be impossible to name all the important places, islands, cities, picturesque towns, monuments and national parks to visit, in just a couple of paragraphs, however, we have picked a few important and popular places for you to start dreaming or begin planning your next luxury superyacht vacation.

Another beautiful group of islands is the Zadar Archipelago, formed by more than 300 islands surrounded by crystal clear waters. The larger islands are covered in Mediterranean scrub and olive trees. There is also Pula, known for its numerous surviving ancient Roman buildings, such as the 1st century Amphitheatre. And of course no Croatian luxury yacht charter is complete without seeing Dubrovnik, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list and one of the most beautiful Mediterranean cities.
Other popular Croatian destinations include the greenest island of the Adriatic – Mljet, the island of Korcula, known for its traditional Knights dance celebrating the Turkish assaults on the Island. There is also the best known island of the Dalmatian Group – Hvar. Another attractive island covered in pine forest, olive groves and vineyards is Brac.
