Dubrovnik & Southern Dalmatia
Sailing Catamaran Holidays in Southern Dalmatia
The walled city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO world heritage site, is one of the most awe inspiring ancient cities in the Mediterranean and a great starting point for any sailing adventure. Following the coastline North you will find some of the most beautiful, un-spoilt and peaceful anchorages in Croatia.
You’ll discover national parks, beautiful beaches & grand palaces on this route. From the hidden coves of the Eliphati islands, to the many uninhabited islands along the coast – you won’t struggle to find privacy and seclusion.
From Dubrovnik you can visit the Elphati islands, Mljet, Lastovo, Korcula and the Peljesac peninsula. It’s also common to do a one-way trip running between Dubrovnik & Split in either direction. Whilst this might incur a slight additional fee it makes for an excellent itinerary!
Described as ‘the most seductive island in the Adriatic,’ Mljet is characterised by its greenery and unspoiled natural beauty. Two thirds of the island is covered by a lush green forest with one third being declared a National park.
There are countless coves and bays dotted around the coast, many providing perfect anchorages. Find your own little corner and take in your surroundings while swimming in perfect blue waters. The island has few inhabitants and while there is a small village with a harbour we’d recommend staying on anchor and spending a quiet night beneath a star filled sky.
Korcula has some of the best thought of beaches in Croatia, many of them small, secluded and only accessible by yacht. With plenty of vineyards, olive groves and pretty little villages, Korcula has retained its traditions and remains unspoiled by mass tourism.
The old town, affectionately known as ‘little Dubrovnik’, is steeped in history and infamous for its local wine. If you have some time on your hands why not visit one of the award winning vineyards tucked away on this gem of an island.
