adriatic sea

adriatic sea

The Adriatic Sea has some of Europe’s last unspoilt coastlines and we think the only way to truly appreciate them is from the sea.  The Croatian coast has an archipelago of hidden coves, ancient forests, Roman ruins, medieval villages and National Parks.... 

We have a selection of exceptional yachts and motor vessels for hire, all fully crewed, and fully catered - all in Croatia.  Our experts know the region intimately and know both the boats and the skippers personally too, enabling us to tailor-make the perfect holiday for you, your friends and your family.  We also have a fabulous selection of 3, 4 and 5 star hotels in Croatia: several in or near Dubrovnik and others on  islands such as Hvar and Mljet.  We also have private villas too.

There are 1,185 islands sprinkled along over a thousand miles of coastline. Many are inhabited, some ecologically clean with no traffic, some isolated like Lastovo or Vis, some made of sand like Susak, but all of exceptional beauty.  Many more are deserted, whilst others have bustling cosmopolitan towns and great restaurants and bars.

Breathtaking views and historic charm abound. The splendid architecture of Dubrovnik should not be missed and the delightful Heritage Town of Trogir has charming cobbled streets, a masterpiece of Croatian Architecture.

We have a selection of lovely private villas in Croatia

With Montenegro nearby, we have watched this former Yugoslavian country morph into another ‘must visit’ destination. Many of our boats now visit the Bay of Kotor, Budva, moor outside The Villa Milocer (the new Aman resort) or we can organise a quick inland visit to Lake Skadar.  

Our skippers tell us that the best winds for smooth sailing are here in Croatia, with the sea being the cleanest in Europe.  Plus: safe moorings, deep anchorage, numerous sheltered inlets all reinforce Croatia's sailing credentials. 

Weather and seasons

Croatia experiences long hot Mediterranean Summers with the best weather seen along the Adriatic coast where temperatures reach into the 30s lasting from May right through to September. Low levels of humidity protect you from feeling the heat at its fiercest.
