Dubrovnik, yacht charter, destination, history, red roofs, yachting

One of the Mediterranean’s most stunning cruising grounds, Croatia has more than 1,200 islands as part of its spectacular Adriatic geography.

Croatia's island-studded coastline is unquestionably its major draw, and the first thing you notice is the incredible purity of the ocean. The ocean glows in brilliant colours of green and turquoise against stunning white gravel beaches.

Dubrovnik, with its distinctive old town encircled by stone walls, is one such magical stop for a Croatian yacht charter. Built in the 16th Century the walled city was used to create the fictional Kings Landing in Game of Thrones. Otherwise known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, the town is filled with incredible restaurants, bars and sites to see.

Beautiful Croatian island Hvar, the Queen of the Dalmatian Islands, is a favourite pit stop for superyacht charters. Hvar Town is proud of its several magnificent Gothic palaces, charming marble stone avenues, and fortifications from the 13th century, in addition to its abundance of outstanding nightclubs, pubs, upscale restaurants, and cafés.

Visit Pula to see the spectacular Roman ruins, including the majestic remnants of an old Roman amphitheatre that still stands at the highest point of the city harbour. The city has a long history of fishing, shipbuilding, and wine production and is situated at the southernmost point of the Istria peninsula.

Split, the second-largest city in Croatia, is a favourite destination for Croatia yacht charterers with its Adriatic vibe and historic Roman heritage. The UNESCO-listed Diocletian's Palace is located here, along with many other pubs, nightclubs, upscale eateries, and designer stores.
