Croatia yacht charter itinerary: timeless nature & architecture
Croatia boasts a host of mixed and unlimited attractions and landscapes. Following a Croatia yacht charter itinerary offers an endless variety of culinary experiences, which are as pleasing to the palate as they are fascinating to the mind. Croatia features towns with exquisite monuments and mediaeval attractions, mazes of alleys and tiny streets, nature parks, waterfalls, lakes, and natural reserves.
On the first night of your Croatia yacht charter itinerary, you can stop in Venice, the ideal place to start your vacation on board a Croatia yacht rental. The noble Venice, known as the “Queen of the Adriatic”, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There you can enjoy a coffee in the middle of the Renaissance Piazza San Marco or navigate on a gondola between the narrow streets.
On the second day of your Croatia yacht charter itinerary, you can leave for north-western Croatia and land in Rovinj, a picturesque fishing port and one of the most beautiful cities on the Croatia coast. Nearby is the Fjord Limska Draga, an extraordinarily beautiful place famous for its oyster fosterage.
On the third day of your Croatia yacht charter itinerary, you can sail to the Brijuni, a group of fourteen small islands separated from the Istrian peninsula by the Strait of Fažana. The islands also include a beautiful national park with lush flora, unique local fauna, historical monuments, and stylish hotels.
On the fourth day of your trip on a Croatia yacht charter, you will reach the Dalmatian coast and the charming city of Zadar, dating from the IX century. Take a walk on the famous promenade or through the streets of this walled city, and don’t miss visiting the centre full of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque monuments.
Near Zadar is the Kornati archipelago, a group of about 130 islands: many of these islands are part of the Kornati National Park. On the fifth and the sixth day of your Croatia yacht charter itinerary, you can visit the park, an area of outstanding natural beauty which has a rugged coastline, with an infinite number of caves and coves, and beautiful sea beds with striking cliffs and steep pinnacles.
On the sixth day of your Croatia sailing yacht itinerary, you can stop to visit Šibenik, situated on the outfall of the river Krka. It is a fortified village and one of the oldest cities on the Adriatic coast. One of the highlights of Šibenik is the Cathedral of St. James, which is included in the UNESCO list of world heritage. Nearby is the Krka National Park, full of spectacular sceneries, including a stunning waterfall, but also fantastic archaeological ruins.
Located on a small island between the mainland, the hills and Ciovo, Trogir is a historic town full of architectural treasures, like its Romanesque churches and some beautiful villas. Split is situated 27 km east of Trogir, and you cannot miss visiting it! The historic centre of Split is another UNESCO World Heritage site, and the city is one of the cultural centres of Croatia.
With a short cruise on board your Croatia yacht charter, you can reach the island of Hvar, one of the longest Adriatic islands, with scented lavender fields, olive groves and vineyards. Hvar has been dubbed Croatia’s St Tropez thanks to its refined offerings, rich history and culture, and exclusive destinations.
Hvar is a popular tourist destination attended by young people from all over Europe, boasting gourmet restaurants and local boutiques. It is also considered one of the most beautiful islands in the world, home to St Stephen’s Cathedral and Square, housing an exquisite collection of Renaissance art by famed artists. Another must-see is the Spanjola Fortress, a Venetian fort built at the beginning of the 16th century.
On the eleventh day of the Croatia sailing yacht itinerary, you can plan a short cruise from Hvar to the wooded island of Šćedro. Then you can sail to the island of Korčula, with its olive trees, beautiful quiet coves, and picturesque and winding mediaeval streets. It is said that Korcula was the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo.
Cruising to the south on your Croatia yacht charter, after the Peljesac peninsula, you can find the island of Mljet, of volcanic origin and with numerous gorges, the longest of which is Babino Polje, which connects the northern and the southern areas of the island. A third of the island is a national park and is a great place to swim or take bike rides.
You reach Dubrovnik, Croatia’s jewel famous for its beautifully preserved old town and its walls dating back to the thirteenth century. This UNESCO world-famous city’s mesmerising architecture lures visitors yearly, with the walled city brimming with ancient churches, monasteries, and fortresses. The city also has a rich nautical tradition and, during the Middle Ages, was one of the few ports active in Croatia.
On day 11 of your Croatia yacht charter itinerary, head for the Old Town, flanked by elegant boutiques and eateries. From here, spend the afternoon strolling little alleyways sure to delight you. For unrivalled views, take the cable car to the crest of Mount Srd, some 412-metres above sea level. It is also one of the best locations to watch the sunset, casting an ethereal hue across the Adriatic Sea.
Your holiday on a Croatia yacht rental ends in Cavtat, an enchanting seaside resort and one of the cities close to Dubrovnik’s airport. From here, you can leave for Italy or to other heavenly destinations for another holiday on a yacht charter.
