While sailing in Croatia, you may find it hard to choose which places to visit as there are so many to choose from on the 5835 km long Coast, which is divided into the regions of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia. Here at ActivityBreaks we have come up with a few suggestions.
Go Island Hopping
Did you know that there are over 1000 islands to choose from while sailing in Croatia? Most of the islands are uninhabited and you will often find them steeped in history and tradition. You will often find hidden coves and undiscovered beaches. Where you can moor up and jump into the crystal blue sea! Why not explore the Island of Mljet famous because of its National Park.
Although sailing in Croatia can be great fun, it is also worthwhile to spend at least a day in the wonderful historical city of Dubrovnik. While approaching from the sea, you will be able to see the imposing fortress walls and once you step onto land you can discover the sights and sounds of this city.
Check out Marco Polo birthplace
Marco Polo the famous world-traveller and writer, was said to have been born on the Island of Korcula. The island belongs to the central Dalmatian archipelago and is the sixth largest Adriatic Island.
Explore Kamerlengo Castle
The Kamerlengo castle and fortress can be found in Trogir and was built by the Republic of Venice in the mid-15th century. You may be lucky enough to see some of the performances that take place during the summer months.
Stop over in Hvar
The island of Hvar is home to the oldest theatre in Europe and each year there is a summer festival held here. It also holds the record for the most sunshine hours on the Adriatic.
We hope our suggestions will make sailing in Croatia your perfect holiday!
