Why Sailing Croatia should be on your bucket list for 2023


8

One of the most popular summer activities in Croatia is sailing along the Dalmatian coast to explore the many beautiful islands. As one who has travelled quite a lot, I would really suggest that island-hopping aboard a sailing boat, yacht, or catamaran should be at the top of your list of things to do while planning your summer vacation in Europe.



In addition, I’d like to explain the yacht on which I traveled to Croatia.

Onboard the Adriatic King

The beautiful new MV Adriatic King Deluxe Superior small cruise ship allows tourists to explore Croatia’s coastline with a small group of like-minded travelers. It was design for the 2021 season with cutting-edge technology and extensive amenities. This small cruise ship provides an intimate journey to some of the most popular spots along the magnificent Adriatic Coast due to their small size and limited passenger numbers.

This yacht has 20 spacious cabins on the Main and Lower decks for your pleasure. All cabins are air-conditioned, with twin or double beds, private bathrooms, and modern amenities.

The ship’s public sections are many, with lots of space to create your own zone. There is a sun deck with sun beds, a salon restaurant, bar, an outdoor lounge area, a jacuzzi and a swimming platform .

And here’s a list of the greatest sailing destinations in Croatia!

Trogir

This little island is surrounded by medieval walls built during the 13th and 14th centuries. We’re talking about the tiniest of details. It would take you five minutes to walk from one end to the other. It is, nonetheless, full of charm as you explore the historical sites. Two yacht marinas serve boat enthusiasts, while coastal nightclubs and bars cater to the younger generation. It’s also renowned as the ideal location for Instagram enthusiasts. For a dose of history, visit Kamerlengo fortification or the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, both of which offer stunning views over the city.

Mljet

This southern oasis with a population of only a thousand people is seldom recognized. Nonetheless, it remains one of the nicest Croatian islands to visit. It is home to one of Croatia’s most impressive natural reserves, which is best explored by bike. After cycling through deep forests, swimming in saline lakes, and enjoying the sand dunes, proceed to Babino Polje, where Odysseus cave may be found. Yes, even the Greek King rested here after years of wandering and being enticed by the nymph Calypso.The beauty of this place drew him here.

Hvar

The lovely island of Hvar is only an hour’s sail from Split. This is a hotbed for celebrity sightings, as numerous are spending their vacation on their luxury yachts in the port. While roaming about with Beyonce or a big movie star may appear to be the finest way to spend your time here, we have another suggestion. Enjoy kayaking to the Paklini archipelago or renting a car to travel to the calm beaches of Jelsa, which are surprisingly underutilized.

Vis

Did you watch the movie, Mamma Mia? If so, it was filmed on the Croatian island of Vis, which happens to be one stop on this journey. While there, visit Kit, a 17th-century Venetian-built complex of courtyards and lanes. You’ll discover mini-marts and restaurants serving wonderful Italian cuisine and seafood. You’ll also discover some of the purest water you’ve seen so far. Since this island is so small, one of the greatest ways to get around is by scooter. After a long day of riding, halt for a sunset dinner at Fort George.

Natural Bay on Stari Grad

Considering its location on Hvar’s north coast, Stari Grad is a far more peaceful affair. Stari Grad means “old town,” which is appropriate given that it was founded by the Greeks in 384 BC. As a result, it is one of the oldest towns in Europe.  The most notable structure in Stari Grad is Petar Hektorovi Castle. The Renaissance poet erected it throughout the course of his life, carving more than 20 inscriptions in both Latin and Italian into the structure.

 

Split

Split combines the ancient and the modern. Split (Spalato in Italian) is Croatia’s second-biggest city and is usually lively. Cafes and chic boutiques coexist with Roman ruins and museums. It’s not surprising that it was used as a filming site for “Game of Thrones.” Diocletian’s Palace, erected in 305 AD for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, the Bell Tower of St. Dominus Cathedral, and Old Town are among the attractions. Not to mention the beaches!

 Zadar

Zadar is not as well-known as its seaside neighbors Split, the legendary walled city of Dubrovnik, or even Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. Many people visiting Croatia have previously neglected it as a destination, but this is changing. And, believe me, this historic seaside city is brimming with magnificent sites. Zadar is Dalmatia’s largest city and one of Europe’s oldest continually inhabited cities.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is truly breathtaking, and it is well worth a visit. The scenery and landscape, like the rest of the country, are breathtaking. Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia’s oldest national parks, and it has been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is famous for its 16 interconnected lakes, but it also has magnificent waterfalls, natural dams, and varied species of flora and animals (many of which are endemic), all of which contribute to its breathtaking beauty. More than one million tourists visit the park each year, making it the most visited location on Croatia’s mainland.

Bol

Bol, the oldest town on the island of Brac, is located in the southernmost portion of the island. It really has swiftly become a tourist magnet due to its sandy beaches that stretch over 10 kilometers. It also has Zlatni Rat, Croatia’s most famous beach. It’s ideal for everyone who enjoys being outside, and you can spend your time there playing volleyball, football, swimming, or windsurfing in the warm air.

Overall, it was an incredible experience and a fantastic way to explore a Croatian sailing vacation. It’s an experience to live on a considerably small boat but not for a second did we feel bored. The team was great, and we all got along great. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime.

If you really want to sail on the Adriatic Coast in Croatia next summer, whether for a party escape, an adventure, or to spend quality time with your loved ones, I absolutely suggest the MV Adriatic King Deluxe Superior small cruise ship – you can book your place for next summer 2023!
