Croatia boat rental and yacht charter
Together with its islands, the Croatian coastline is one of the world’s most intricately indented coastlines. Of the 1,244 islands, islets, cliffs and reefs that existed after the dramatic rise in the Adriatic Sea level around 13,000 B.C., only 50 are populated today. As an up-and-coming destination, we can practically think thousands of reasons for a yacht charter in Croatia, the land of sun-drenched beaches and terraced lakes.
This island and islet wealth attracts adventurous travelers from around the world. The smaller islands and their romantic atmosphere, and the peaceful way of life amid such tranquility and elegance, will never fail to attract kayakers and yachtsmen.
Most island cities, with their beautiful architecture and atmosphere, satisfy the senses with their ancient monuments, works of art in stone, wood, canvas, and old parchments.
On a variety of islands, superb quality stone and highly skilled stonemasonry are a tradition. Stone from Brač Island has been integrated across Croatia, Italy and all around the world into cities, summer homes and many magnificent works.
Most of the Adriatic lighthouses-those stone signposts and sea guards-are automated, only about 15 of them are still staffed. Some were fitted out as homes and can be rented on a deserted island for a Robinson-like adventure.
The islands are best seen by walking or biking, which would definitely include some of the biggest islands: Lošinj and Cres, Krk, Rab, Brač, Hvar, Vis, Korčula, Mljet.
Most historical structures are still well maintained, and their churches and bell towers, palaces, plazas, and fortifications are easily identified. They will offer you many reasons for visiting museums, collections of the natural wealth of Croatia and artworks, monuments of secular and sacred architecture from distant and recent times.
The main coastal urban centers-Pula, Rijeka, Zadar, Šibenik, Split and Dubrovnik-are all located near airfields. They also have ports that ensure their mutual connections and link them to the islands; they operate regular bus lines and some have rail links to the country’s interior. Split, the second largest town in Croatia, is a real gem worth exploring by boat. Its old town, with historical monuments and narrow, paved streets, will take you away from your everyday life. In the area, there are many destinations to be discovered; each and every one of them is an island of exceptional beauty. You can sail to Zadar as well and walk around the picturesque center of the city. Visit the Kornati National Park to discover its 147 islands if you choose a yacht charter in Croatia. A perfect destination for nature lovers, providing opportunities for various outdoor activities such as walking, snorkeling, and sea swimming.
