What better way is there to discover the beautiful Croatian islands than island hopping? Rather than discovering just one of them, take a tour that includes a few to get a true sense of the Croatian islands’ beauty.
Since Croatia has one of the most rugged coastlines in Europe, there are countless small islands, you won’t be able to see them all at once. Because of this, we’ve put together an ideal Croatian island itinerary suitable for yacht charters.
A lot of the most popular islands that you should see are located in the region of Dalmatia. This is where all locations in our itinerary are situated so that you could incorporate them all in one vacation. There are different routes to take, but the most logical one starts in Dubrovnik to which you can travel by airplane. Dubrovnik, known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” serves as the ideal starting point for your unforgettable journey. Easily accessible by airplane, this enchanting city welcomes visitors with its medieval walls, picturesque old town, and breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea. So make sure to plan your Croatia cruises in spring 2024 from Dubrovnik and immerse yourself in the rich history and natural beauty of the region.
Your vacation should start in Dubrovnik and continue onto the islands. First of the islands on our list is Mljet – one of the most important islands for marine biodiversity and consequently, home to amazing natural beauties. There are various monuments to discover on Mljet, but if you want a unique experience, rent scuba diving gear and an instructor. Mljet’s sea floor will blow your mind and you can discover it right from your yacht.
After Mljet, head onto Korčula, popular for its crystal clear sea. It’s the most visited Croatian island and one of the best-preserved medieval towns in this part of the world (the birthplace of Marco Polo). You’ll discover the true nature of Mediterranean islands, great nightlife, and plenty of activities by day. It’s a popular tourist destination so there’s a wide offer of what you can discover in Korčula.
Once you’re done partying on Korčula, you can continue to Hvar, the island of the largest ancient agricultural plains on all Croatian islands. Hvar has been an important stop for all trades throughout history so it has numerous historical monuments and a tradition of winemaking and agriculture. Once an important seaport, it’ll welcome your arrival right away. For choosing the best yacht to sail into Hvar, visit Yacht In. It’s known as the best-smelling Adriatic island because of various lavender fields and fruit orchards which will make everyone fall in love with it.
After resting at Hvar, it’s time for some active rest on the island of Brač. Visit the town of Bol and go wind-surfing or discover the nightlife. Bol is great for anyone who loves summer beach parties. However, Brač is the largest island in Dalmatia so it offers something for everyone. You can discover hidden beaches and traditional restaurants surrounded by pine trees throughout the island.
All Croatian islands are worth visiting, however, you can’t see them all in a short trip, so stick to our Croatian island yacht charter itinerary for the best rounded-up experience of Croatian island hopping.
