With its mountainous, forested coastline of quiet archipelagos and breathtaking blue-green anchorages, a Croatia yacht charter is a journey through a backdrop of natural splendour, while offering all the high-end dining and pampering experiences of one of the world’s most seductive superyacht destinations.
A yacht charter in Croatia offers a dazzling yachting playground of tranquil islands, glamorous nightlife, delicious food, and an endlessly rich culture of baroque palaces, walled cities, and ancient monasteries. Whatever your passion, you’ll find bliss on a luxury yacht charter in Croatia.
Croatia has over 2,000 islands scattered along its Adriatic coastline, and it could take a happy lifetime to visit them all. Highlights along the Dalmatian coast include the glorious island of Vis— often compared to Capri for its Blue Grotto and bewitching beauty, and the quiet, wild island of Mjlat, where a Benedictine monastery sits in the middle of a lake and shady forest paths are perfect for cycling.
On the island of Brac, you can enjoy water sports off Croatia’s most famous beach at Bol or hike into the mountains, while pretty Lavosto promises wonderful anchorages and a thriving summer festival scene. Hvar, meanwhile, attracts the superyacht set with beach clubs and restaurants aplenty, all set in a gorgeous landscape of lavender fields and sunny vineyards, crystal clear anchorages, and desperately pretty islets just offshore.
Hvar is the highlight of the luxury nightlife scene in Croatia, with rooftop bars overlooking the sea, A-list nightclubs, and decadent full moon parties at famous beach clubs. Carpe Diem, Hula Hula Hvar and Pink Champagne are three of the most notorious clubs in Hvar—and you may want to spend more than one night in Hvar on your Croatia yacht charter to fit it all in! But that’s not all there is to the after-dark scene in Croatia— after all, this is one of the best places in Europe to party in summer. Split excites with its bar scene along the walls of Diocletian Palace and beachside terraces, while the island of Pag is notorious for its clubbing scene, with famous DJs and beach festivals in summer.
Fine Dining and Rustic Deliciousness
Croatia’s lush green landscapes and deep, clear seas provide an incredible bounty of meat and seafood, and Croatia’s dining scene brilliantly reflects this. From rustic family run tavernas (konobos) serving up fresh grilled fish and roasted lamb by the sea to stunning fine dining restaurants set on Dubrovnik’s walls, Croatia’s food scene impresses more and more with each passing year. In Dubrovnik, Royals and superstars line up to eat at Nautica or Gils, Mali Raj is an authentic konobo on Mjet, Pojoda is one of Croatia’s dining standouts on Vis, and Carpe Diem Beach Club is the table to aspire on Hvar.
From the high walls of Dubrovnik where Game of Thrones is filmed to the Diocletian palace of Split, the Dalmatian Coast is simply awash with historical sights to visit on your Croatia yacht charter. Get lost in Dubrovnik’s laneways, baroque palaces, and orange groves, explore the Roman ruins of Split, or visit the Benedictine monastery on Mjlet. If you can drag yourself away from the high life in Hvar, there’s much to see in the historic town including a splendid cathedral, while Lavosto boasts gorgeous, well-preserved 15th-century architecture.
Croatia’s Adriatic Coast promises quiet beauty and rich glamour in equal measure, and the only way to explore this stunning part of the world properly is on a luxury Croatia yacht charter.
