One of Croatia’s ancient coastal cities, ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’ is numbered among the best-preserved medieval walled cities on Earth. Croatia presents conditions ideal for those new to coastal sailing, with gentle winds and fine weather promising many pleasant hours on deck. For those with a taste for adventure, occasional mistral winds up the ante and present more challenging conditions.
Dubrovnik’s historic fortifications surround picturesque white stone buildings, their terracotta roofs standing out in contrast to the rich azure blue of the Adriatic beyond. The Old Town is a taste of Mediterranean life from another era. The harbour is overlooked by Dubrovnik’s ancient citadels and scattered with a number of spectacular Renaissance palaces leading on to a warren of pedestrian-only streets. Crystal-clear blue waters give way to white-sand beaches and secluded coves, while the thousands of Croatian islands offer endless opportunities for adventure.
Just outside Dubrovnik harbour you’ll find the first of Croatia’s many isles: densely-wooded Lokrum, home to the ruins of a Benedictine monastery. Sail north and discover Mljet National Park – home to natural harbours, stunning beaches and tidal island lakes – and the island getaways of Korčula and Lastovo. Beyond are the countless islands of the Dalmatian coast and a wealth of golden beaches, delicious seafood restaurants and exciting nightlife.
