Yacht Charter Croatia - Discover the Adriatic's Hidden Treasures

If you'd like to visit the Mediterranean the next time you're on holiday, there's no better country to see it in than Croatia. You know, there's a reason a number of Roman emperors and wealthy citizens chose to built summer retreats here, the scenery is very beautiful and the waters are the loveliest shade of blue, not to mention the fact that the Adriatic, is the cleanest and calmest sea in the Mediterranean.

Croatia has 1778km of coastline so you could say it's a maritime nation. Most of the major cities like Dubrovnik, Split, Pula, Zadar and Rijeka are located on the shore and constitute major ports as well as tourist attractions. They are all unique mixtures of ancient and modern because you'll find many night clubs and restaurants among the old Roman ruins, thus making for a very pleasurable experience.

But the true delight of the Croatian Adriatic coast is the large number of islands scattered along the coast in many archipelagoes, the main reason why yachties come here. So if you're tired of spending time on the shore, try changing your point of view and booking a sailing holiday to Croatia. There are many sailor-friendly regions such as Istria, Kvarner Bay, Dalmatia and the famous Kornati archipelago.
