Destination Croatia: The magnificent seven
The magnificent seven
The Adriatic coast is full of beautiful and diverse locations and it would be impossible to list them all. Whether you are going for a luxury yacht wedding destination, chill-out vacation, romantic getaway, or an active holiday these seven locations have it all. Some of our favorite places to visit are in the southern region called Dalmatia. Explore the destination Croatia and sail southwards starting in Zadar to experience Dalmatian hospitality.
Dalmatia offers great gastronomic delicacies based on sustainable foods. In addition to choosing the destination Croatia, there are endlessly beautiful and hidden beaches to swim in, rich historical heritage, romantic sunsets, stunning ancient architecture, and a crystal clear sea waiting for you.
1. Zadar– The one with the most beautiful sunset
Zadar has it all. The sea, the vicinity of the mountains and national parks like Krka, the rich history, and trendy and top-class restaurants will make your visit to Zadar unforgettable.
You have endless choices in Zadar like sailing the archipelago islands called Kornati. You can spend the day on the sea and explore the stunning Kornati bays. Or you can stay in the old town of Zadar and enjoy a home-cooked seafood meal. One of our favorite things to do is listen to the famous Sea Organ at sunset. The sea organ is an artistic installation that covers 70 Meters and every time the waves crash on the steps, music is played.
2. Split –The city with an ancient Roman heart
The city of Split explodes with cultural and architectural history every step of the way. The remains of the Roman palace are located in the very core of the town alongside the bell tower of St. Duje Cathedral. This cathedral is one of the most familiar landmarks of the city.
There are a couple of marinas in the city where you can take a luxury yacht and explore the island archipelago around Split. City park Sustipan, and park forest Marjan are the places to take long relaxing walks and enjoy the tranquility of nature near the center of the town. Be sure to go up to Vidilica and admire the beautiful panoramic view of Split.
3. Brač Island– The island with the highest mountain in the Adriatic
Vidova Gora, the highest peak of the island offers the most amazing view of the island’s most famous beach, Zlatni Rat in the town of Bol. But don’t be fooled, Brač is beautiful and is so much more than just Bol and Zlatni rat. While you are sailing along the south side of the island you’ll be able to explore many stunning beaches and bays. Also, be sure to sail to other towns as well and try all the traditional delicacies like lamb or octopus peka.
4. Hvar Island–The Sunniest one
Out of all the destinations in Croatia, Hvar has the most sunshine hours during the year and is one of the most popular islands. Hvar Town is famous for luxury yacht parties and sunset DJ sets at places like Hulu and Laganini on the Pakleni Islands. Hvar is a favorite wedding destination as the sunsets are stunning and perfect for a wedding ceremony. Just keep in mind that Hvar Town can get very busy in the summer.
If you plan on enjoying one of their delicious restaurants definitely make a reservation a few weeks ahead of time. Beyond Hvar town you can find calm moments in places like Jelsa and Vrboska where the authentic seaside villages are showcased.
5. Vis island– The authentic one
Far off the mainland, the island of Vis is hardly ever overcrowded and is the perfect destination if you are looking for a more relaxed holiday. It’s authenticity owes to the fact that is located far from the Adriatic coast, so renting a scooter or sailing to and around the island is the best way to experience the best of what Vis has to offer.
6. Korcula Island– The home of Marco Polo and Posip Wine
Korcula is for sure less popular than the island of Hvar or Dubrovnik but it is equally beautiful, if not more. If you are looking for a laid-back vacation on the island that has a lot to offer this is where you need to go. This charming island has it all. A wine-tasting tour is a perfect way to learn more about one of the best wines in Croatia called Posip and Grk.
7. Dubrovnik– The pearl of the Adriatic
When people think about having a holiday, and the destination Croatia comes to their minds people always dream of Dubrovnik. Just by being anchored in front of Dubrovnik’s iconic city walls, you’ll realize that here history is bursting out everywhere you look. Charming islands near Dubrovnik are perfect for daily or multi days luxury sailing tours. The town where Game of Thrones was filmed, with its fortresses, renaissance buildings, and views, will leave you craving for more.
