Croatia is 56,594 km² large country and it is dotted by over 1000 islands along the Dalmatian Coast. Many sailing enthusiasts choose this place because distances between most islands are short and each place is unique and astounding in its own way.

The best sailing route:

However, one of our favorite sailing destinations we have put together is the one that starts from vibrant Split, the second largest town in Croatia and ends in beautiful town Dubrovnik known for its history and popular for being a filming destination for Game of Thrones series.

This route (Split – Dubrovnik) offers many sheltered anchorages and harbors.

You can choose to moor in isolated areas or modern and well-equipped marinas. During the sail, you will be stopping by the abundance of secluded bays, beaches, mountains, and coves.

With this weeklong getaway, you will truly get the most of your holiday! In fact, you will be able to see the main fascinating hotspot destinations.

Your days will be planned around sailing close to gorgeous beaches, exploring historic lively towns and islands, and you once your cruise ends you will truly feel like you saw it all!

There will be plenty of time each day for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing in places you liked the most. One of the big advantages is that everything can be organized by your wishes.
