Dubrovnik Yacht Charter Guide
Croatia is fast becoming a favorite destination for yacht charter vacations. The famously beautiful coastlines of the hundreds of islands in the Adriatic Sea offer some of the most spectacular cruising in the world. A yacht charter to Dubrovnik is the ideal way to explore this part of the world – from the hidden coves of the Eliphati islands, to the many uninhabited islands of the coast you will be able to find privacy and seclusion on empty beaches. Dubrovnik is arguably the most enchanting spot of the Croatian coast – a UNESCO World Heritage site, the terracotta roofs of the city are contrasted against the lush green of olive groves and vineyards, creating stunning sights as you approach the marina. With fascinating history, excellent cuisine and a bustling nightlife, exploring the limestone streets of this port city is a must for discerning travelers.
Key Cruising Areas: The coastline of Croatia offers stunning sailing options, with many small islands and harbors to explore. Sailing south, the neighboring countries of Montenegro and Albania are often overlooked but are fantastic destinations.
Don’t Miss: This is a nation with one of the highest wine consumptions in the world, so a trip to Croatia would not be complete without visiting a winery. For a unique visit, travel to the Peljesac Peninsula for a tour of Edivo Vina – the country’s first underwater winery. The wine is aged for years buried under the sea, where the perfect silence is thought to enhance the quality. Take a dive to the bottom of the bay, or simply opt for sampling some on land – with a chance to buy some bottles still covered in shells.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: While Dubrovnik offers many exquisite restaurants – 360 degrees is one to mention – the dining of Croatia revolves around café culture. For great food, drinks and nightlife, explore the cobbled streets of the Old Town. Try the craft beer and after-hours cocktails of Glam Café, or the relaxed ambience of Soul Caffe.
Local Culture: The rich heritage of Croatia can be seen throughout Dubrovnik, in the baroque buildings, historic churches, ancient forts and more – the city is home to thousands of historical sites and is itself a UNESCO World Heritage city. The Cavtat Old Town, city walls and Fort of St John are fascinating relics of the country’s past, and Rector’s Palace, which houses the Museum of Dubrovnik’s past, are notable places to visit.
Best Beach: For a break from the tourists, join the locals at Sveti Jakov. A pleasant stroll along tree lined avenues brings you to the shingly beach, where the clear waters of the bay are surrounded by rocky hills. The beach has a nice bar to sit in the evening, as the dipping sun warms the sands and lights up views of the old town with orange hues.
IYC recommends: Discover the idyllic island of Lokrum. Coated with pines and cypress trees and peppered with ruins, the island was once thought to hold a curse placed on Napoleon. Explore the tropical gardens and medieval remains, kayak around the island to see abandoned monasteries, secret coves and glittering turquoise waters. End the day with a cocktail at the bar overlooking the jetty as the sun sets.
