Sailing in Croatia – The Best Way to Explore the Gems of Croatia

by Naleia Yachting Tour Organizer

Looking forward to plan a group travel in Croatia? Then how about traveling on a sailboat? Sounds interesting right? Sailing Croatia is undoubtedly the best way to explore the country and its beauty. Croatia is a mesmerizing land of 1,000 islands which makes it an absolute sailing paradise. Therefore, sailing in Croatia offers an incredible experience. Along the Croatian coast you will get an opportunity to see the beautiful sights of typical Venetian villages with ancient bell towers, medieval fortresses, antiquated taverns, baths and some of the most unspoiled and pure beaches of the Mediterranean.

During the sailing trip around Croatia you will be visiting some of the spectacular islands of the country where you can take delight in discovering isolated harbors that are unreachable from the land, tasting delicious local food and wines as well as bathe at sunset in the impressive waterfalls. From magnificent national parks to nudist beaches and everything in between makes sailing in Croatia a once-in-a-lifetime experience for travelers from all over the world.

Let us find out some of the best islands to explore in Croatia –

· Šibenik

Built on the coast of Dalmatia, Šibenik is a Venetian beauty that stands  where the Krka River flows into the Adriatic Sea. Currently, it is the third largest city in Dalmatia, with spectacular sights making it a must visit during sailing trips in Croatia.

We explore stunning fortresses, which offer an incredible view of the sea, the city as well as the nearby islands. While walking through the maze of narrow stone-paved streets, we visit some of the best sights of the city that include St. James Cathedral, St. Lawrence Monastery gardens and the town square.

Here we will enjoy delectable dishes made out of locally produced ingredients and local wines, at one of the traditional restaurants, before returning back to the yachts!

· Vrgada

This island is a “not to be missed kind of place! It is a stunning forested island with a large sandy beach, which is not common in Croatia.  Vrgada has a small population and a huge unpopulated bay. Here on this island you can enjoy the peacefulness and remoteness with your little group, by sharing the meal cooked on board, admiring stars, listening to music as well as night swims. This is one of the best ways to experience and relish the life on a yacht detached from the rest of the world!

· Kornati

A beautiful and characteristically stone-layered island, Kornati has a strange, moon like, environment with the occasional settlement or a single restaurant. Here you can relish the incredible underwater life at the depth of only a few meters. You can also enjoy a hike at the nearby hill where you can take delight in the mesmerizing sunset view. And a swim at night unveils one of nature’s true spectacles, glowing planktons. If you have not seen this before, it’s a must!

· Primošten

An old town built on a hilly peninsula, Primošten offers perfect sunset views. Also, a ten minute hike will let you enjoy the panoramic views from the top of the hill.

· Kaprije

No vehicles are allowed on this island which makes it a pollution free place to explore. It is a short sail from Primošten. Here, the local community survives from fishing, tourism and growing olives and capers. You can enjoy a lot of swimming, snorkeling and relaxing time here during the lunch break! Kaprije Archipelago offers you a great opportunity to spot dolphins in Croatia, one of the best places in Croatia to do so.
