Split Yacht Charter Guide

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and the largest city on the Adriatic coast. It’s an enchanting town with a rich history and culture that make it a highly sought after yacht charter destination.

Why do we think Split is worth seeing?

Split is a city of unparalleled beauty and cultural heritage, with winding cobblestone streets, Baroque and Venetian-inspired architecture, and historical sites that date back thousands of years. From the ancient Diocletian's Palace, to the vibrant Peristyle Square, to the awe-inspiring Cathedral of St. Duje (Saint Dominus), Split is a destination like no other. It is also a place of great cinematic fame, having been used as a filming location for blockbuster television series like Game of Thrones. But the city doesn't just offer historical wonders: visitors can also find plenty of art galleries, boutique shops, and even the impressive monument of Grgur Ninski created by renowned Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.

Why do we recommend visiting Split on a yacht charter?

Split has an international airport and is the ideal gateway to begin or end a yacht charter in Croatia, but it could also be a stop along the way of your itinerary. Apart from its charming medieval streets, picturesque waterfront and lively nightlife scene the city offers a stunning coastline that goes on for miles and miles with several islands to explore. The first thing that strikes you is the remarkable clear water. There are long sandy stretches, perfect for lazy days spent lounging and relaxing, or partaking in water-based activities. A yacht charter is the perfect way to explore the city's stunning coastline and admire its captivating architecture.

Best time to visit: Summertime. June-September is the best time to visit because of the warm water and perfect weather. The temperature is between 65 and 85 degrees during these months. These temperatures are ideal for experiencing the beaches of this beautiful coastline.

Key cruising areas: Split, Adriatic Sea. The sea is 400 nm long and 100 nm wide. Sailors travel from all over the world to experience the natural beauty by boat. Private charterers can cruise and witness the “Land of a Thousand Islands”, which is filled with uninhibited islands that are rich with natural beauty.  

Don't miss: Snorkeling in the strikingly crystal clear waters. There are an abundance of water-based activities, but on land, it is best to experience the lush vineyards with fragrant olive groves. At the end of a busy day, a must-see is a Croatian sunset. The perfect way to view this is by private yacht. 

Best spots for wining and dining: Explore Croatia by foot, drinking in the sights, smells, and flavors. Take your pick from countless restaurants and try some of Croatia’s delicious local dishes, with highlights including locally grown olives, flavorful octopus salad, brudet (a slow-cooked fish casserole), and black squid risotto.

Best Local Dish: A popular Dalmatian dish is called Janjetina s Bizima, which is a lamb dish with young peas that are sauteed in butter and oil with tomato sauce and seasonings. The whole dish is simmered for an hour and served with potatoes. This traditional dish is served only at authentic restaurants.

Local Culture: Split is the second-largest city in Croatia but is said to have an unbelievable amount of historical sites. Croatia is steeped in a rich cultural history that stretches back to ancient Roman times and the Ottoman Empire, with an abundance of enchanting myths and legends to tell.

IYC Recommends: Enjoy the rich scenery that Split has to offer by taking an early morning stroll through the historical city and visiting the Cafes around town. Enjoying a fun-filled afternoon with watersports on a private yacht is the perfect way to experience Split's beauty.
