People don't automatically think about a Croatia sailing getaway. When they go on holiday they instantly think of renting a car. It can
often be the best way to see the country that you are visiting. Maybe you prefer
to drive off into the countryside or through a busy city; it's nice to have the
freedom and flexibility on hand.
However have you ever thought of renting a boat instead?
In many countries it is their coastlines that are the main attraction
and what is better than travelling along the beautiful coastline, visiting the
lively towns, the small fishing villages and the peaceful undiscovered areas.
When you have rented a boat, it means that you can do all the above in your own time and go any direction you want. You get to have the freedom to explore the country as you wish as well as relaxing by the water or on a sandy beach.
Here are some reasons why Croatia is the top of my "holiday to
do" list. It is known for its unbelievable coastline, it has everything
you need for a perfect Croatia sailing getaway. It has the history, the sun and the seaside
along with so much more.
A good way to see the coastal islands is sailing, Croatia is most popular with water-sports, sailing and all activities to do with water.
The country gets a lot of tourists travelling along the coast, much travel by bus but even more travel by boat.
As there are so many activities along the seaside resorts, visitors are really spoilt for choice. Island hopping is one of the biggest pulls for tourists, and with over 1000 islands you won't get stuck for something to do or see.
The largest islands are Kruk and Cres, in the Adriatic
Sea just above the Dalmatia coast.
Dubrovnik is probably the most known city in Croatia for its medieval
history and its great nightlife. It is at the bottom of the coastline and often
the starting point for many sailing Croatia's seas.
Dubrovnik is known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic", it is really a must see city. If you don't want to spend all day and all night on the boat why not use Dubrovnik as your hub. Stay in the city and venture out each day to a new place.
You can go anywhere when sailing, Croatia has so much to offer. It is down to you to make the most of its amazing coastline.
