Dubrovnik & Southern Dalmatia
Sailing 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.
Explore the natural beauty of national parks, beautiful beaches, grand palaces and rustic taverna’s or visit award wining vineyards and sample the local wine. From the hidden coves of the Eliphati islands, to the many uninhabited islands along the coast – you will be able to find privacy and seclusion on a charter in this region.
From Dubrovnik you can visit the Elphati islands, Mljet, Lastovo, Korcula and the Peljesac peninsula. It’s also commonplace 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 charter itinerary.
Described as ‘the most seductive island in the Adriatic,’ Mljet is characterised by its greenery and un-spoilt 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 island that make for perfect anchorages, from which you can admire the beauty of the island and swim in its perfect blue waters. The island has few inhabitants and whilst 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 regarded beaches in Croatia, many of them small and secluded, ideal territory to explore by yacht. With plenty of vineyards, olive groves and pretty little villages, Korcula is an island which has retained its traditions and remains unspoiled by mass tourism. The old town, known as ‘little Dubrovnik’ is steeped in history and infamous for its local wine.
