Among the pearls of the Mediterranean Sea, Croatia stands out for its many islands (currently 1185), for the cities plenty of historical and artistic charm and for a varied and tasty cuisine. Here you can sail and enjoy the sea from April to October. The climate along the coast is typically Mediterranean, with mild winters and fresh summers.

Starting from the north, one of the best equipped ports is Marina Veruda, in Pula. From here you can sail for a cruise along Istria and Kvarner Bay, and sail among the islands of Cres, Krk, Rab, Lozinj. Two more stages are almost a must: Porec, surrounded by bays immersed in the green, and Rovinj with its spectacular rugged coastline, characterized by rocks and stones, its active fishing harbor and the diversified small beaches. A recommendation: do not leave Rovinj without tasting the "fuzi" (typical pasta with clams sauce), the Istrian ham and the famous "cukerancici", crisp cookies sprinkled with sugar.

If you decide to start your boat cruise from the center of Croatia you have a great choice for the starting port: Zadar, Sukosan, Biograd, Sibenik, Murter. From here you sail to the fascinating archipelago of Kornati, 147 islands and islets in a "square" of only 15 km. So many islands scattered in a small space create an ideal place for sailors in search of hidden bays. Do not miss the cliffs above the sea of Donji Kornati and those of Klobucar Island (the highest is 80 meters).

Do not choose this goal if you're looking for evenings in fashionable locals! The islands are mostly uninhabited. Hotels do not exist but fishermen offer hospitality in their homes. A paradise for sailors from the bay of Hiljada, with its flat sea, to Zut, the yellow island.
You then arrive in Mala Proversa, finally reaching Kornat, the largest island of the archipelago. Identifying buoys that float on the turquoise water you also know where restaurants are, for a plate of seafood spaghetti on the water!

Far south you can reach the islands of southern Dalmatia. With your boat you will depart from the historic port of Dubrovnik or from landings such as Trogir and Split in northern Dalmatia. You will sail all around Korkula Island, known for its beautiful beaches, like those near Lumbarda; Mijet Island, famous for the National Park that gives it the name of "Green Island", and for the "Ulysses cave" in which you can also enter from the sea; the Island of Lastovo, where you will not fail to arrive at the picturesque bay of Skrivena Luke (Hidden Port) and visit the Ubli village in the bay of Velo Lago.

Further north, in central Dalmatia, we have the Island of Vis, with its dream creeks; Hvar, the "coolest" island of Croatia, where you can enjoy trendy lounge beaches and dine with "Gregada", the typical fish soup in the manner of fishermen, with onions, potatoes, clams and fish of the day; the island of Brac, with rich vegetation and wonderful beaches, such as the famous Zlatni Rat, a horn of fine gravel that extends for hundreds of meters into the sea.
