Best Time To Visit: May to October is great for sailing, with the shoulder seasons being quiet and warm.
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 consumption 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. 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.
