Sailing vacation in Croatia

Croatia is the number one destination for Adriatic Sea yacht charter vacations, offering lazy days spent in secret coves, visits to charming villages and fantastic restaurants, and more than your fair share of island hopping. While everyone has heard of Dubrovnik and Split, our chosen route takes us a little further afield, beginning and ending in the lesser-known town of Trogir.

Marina Martinis Marchi

Situated in the charming village of Maslinica on Solta Island, Martinis Marchi Marina is home to the exclusive, five-star Martinis Marchi “heritage” hotel and restaurant. Set in a historic castle, the hotel offers first-rate accommodation while its kitchen serves Mediterranean specialties, such as seared octopus with balsamic vinegar and duck breast in brown butter, on a romantic terrace overlooking the marina.

Stoncica Bay

Moor your boat off Stoncica Beach and spend the day luxuriating in crystal clear waters in this tiny cove off the island of Vis.

Vis town

An ancient seaside town full of rickety 17th century townhouses and narrow, winding alleyways that make it one of the most charming locations in Croatia. Stop for dinner at Lola Konoba & Bar, with its delightfully rustic courtyard complete with an old stone wall and fountain. The Croatian chef and his Spanish wife have created a menu of pan-Mediterranean delights, including patatas bravas, croquettes and beef cheeks.

Lastovo

Not an island per se, but an archipelago of 46 islands with a population totaling less than 800 people, Lastovo has managed to avoid the recent influx of mass tourism to Croatia. You may never want to leave this -secluded paradise, famed for its glittering turquoise waters and tiny fishing villages.

Gradina Bay

Sail into picturesque Gradina Bay on the island of Korcula and tuck into an authentic meal of fresh fish, right on the water’s edge, at Siloko restaurant.

Palmizana

The small, uninhabited resort of Palmizana is found on the island of Sveti Klement. The scent of rosemary fills the air as you arrive in this village, which is famous for its excellent cuisine based on all kinds of fresh seafood, from fish to lobster and scampi, as well as locally grown vegetables from the island gardens.

Jorja Bay

Before heading back to Trogir, make time for another stop on Solta, this time in the quiet, sheltered Jorja Bay. The cove is home to Kike restaurant, an unassuming eatery that’s renowned for its seafood stew (or Croatian-style bouillabaisse). Kike has created a series of mooring lines that can accommodate up to eight yachts at a time, which corresponds exactly to the capacity of his kitchen.
