Taking up the majority of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea lies Croatia, a relatively tiny country that is simultaneously one of the richest in Europe in terms of biodiversity. The Adriatic Sea contains over 1.300 islands most of which are located along the Croatian coast, meaning a yacht charter in Croatia is one of the smartest ways to explore this beautiful region.
Hugged between Italy on the west and Croatia and its neighbours on the east means that tidal movements in the semi-enclosed Adriatic are often slight at most. This makes it an ideal region for literal smooth sailing, but also a great place to dive for shipwrecks, explore underwater caverns or enjoy the views from your superyacht while leisurely sipping a raki cocktail.
Do not worry, its relatively still seawaters do not make for a relatively dull holiday scenario. While Croatia is known for its forests, covering almost half the country, there is also plenty to see, do and experience in the more bustling areas of the country. A not to miss stop during any yacht charter in Croatia is Deep Marsaka, for instance; a club hidden in a cave. Dance the night away whilst overlooking the Adriatic and with potential views on your superyacht as well. The hustle and bustle of Split, located on a peninsula offering, offers tremendous views both on as well as from its seaside promenades.
Equally impressive are the dramatic karst mountains, forming a unique limestone coastline with deep gorges and cascading waterfalls. The Dalmatian part of the coast is a must-see even if just for Hvar’s Baroque-style harbour. The more quiet Istrian coast has an Italian feel, allowing you to savour fresh tiramisu after an adventurous day out with your yacht’s water toys.
The East Med is the perfect place to set sail leisurely. A yacht charter in Croatia allows you to take in the rugged nature, splendid coastline views and mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine all in one dream trip.
