The Mediterranean As It Once Was
The Croatian National Tourist Board slogan, “The Mediterranean As It Once Was,” explains why Croatia is now one of the most popular sailing areas in the Mediterranean. In short, Croatia has five distinct coastal regions: Istria, Kvarner, North Dalmatia, Central Dalmatia, and South Dalmatia. Indeed, these are all beautiful sailing areas for your Croatia yacht charter vacation with Luxury Yacht Charters. Below, we look more closely at the central sailing regions.

North Dalmatia - Zadar
The ancient city of Zadar, founded by the Romans, is the chief mainland port of North Dalmatia. Above all, this is a region of soaring limestone mountains, thundering waterfalls, azure sea, and myriad islands. Here, you can enjoy sailing around the rocky uninhabited islets of Kornati National Park - a total escape from civilization. After that, call at North Dalmatia's second city, Šibenik, a treasure trove of old stone churches and fortresses.
Central Dalmatia – Split
Sitting in a sheltered bay, Split is generally considered the true heart of Dalmatia. Founded by Roman Emperor Diocletian, this is the perfect starting point for sailing the magnificent islands of Central Dalmatia. For example, begin with Brač, then proceed to Hvar and Vis. Tranquil pebble coves, water sports, centuries-old harbor towns, gourmet dining, and fine wines are all offered here. In addition, the nightlife rocks in Hvar Town and the surrounding islands.
South Dalmatia – Dubrovnik
Croatia's most glamorous destination, Dubrovnik, sits within sturdy medieval fortifications, and it is the chief port of South Dalmatia. From here, you might sail to Mljet, and after that, continue your voyage to Korčula and Lastovo. In short, each island offers something unique. Expect a balmy Mediterranean climate, palm trees, aristocratic stone palaces, Renaissance gardens, lush vineyards, and fine dining.
