Description of Croatian Islands yacht cruise

This Croatian islands yacht cruise really is a best of both worlds cruising holiday, as you take in both islands and mainland sites with time in the medieval cities of Split and Dubrovnik as well as some of the country’s most revered islands.

Starting in Split, where the Diocletian's Palace is a must see, which creates the most magnificent centrepiece to this coastal city. From here we set sail for the island of Korcula, famous for being the birthplace of Marco Polo but also boasting an ancient fortified centre in Korcula town, with a Gothic-Renaissance cathedral at its heart.

Your next stop is all about natural rather than cultural heritage, and is the only island national park in Croatia: Mljet Island, with two stunning salt lakes on its interior making it a wonderful island for hiking or biking around. From here to Dubrovnik, an historic, heavenly and sometimes heaving city, we recommend taking the cable car from the Old Town to Srd Mountain for a great way to escape the crowds while getting breathtaking views of the city walls and Elaphiti Islands.

Heading back up north again we visit more island idylls, the first being Hvar, famous for its wealthy clientele but also for its beaches and walking paths way off the main tourist drag, where lavender fields and small fishing villages await. And last but not least, we visit the island of Brac, the largest island in the Dalmatian archipelago with the highest peak in the Adriatic, Mount St. Vid (780m). Visit the town of Bol and go swimming at one of Croatia’s most famous beaches, Zlatni Rat, a white limestone pebbled peninsula of pure prettiness.

The Impacts of this Trip

Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.

Our vessel, on the other hand, stops at many small ports and towns where we can fully enjoy some of the very best that Croatia has to offer. The money that we will spend in many of these smaller communities will help to preserve the fantastic heritage of these antique coastline. Our visits to Mljet National Park & The Benedictine monastery on St Mary Isle will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their coffers.

Our vessels are captained and crewed by Croatians.

It was a wonderful, relaxing break.... I guess top of the list would be swimming in the sea, off the back of the boat. I loved both Split and Dubrovnik, but also the lovely islands between them, especially Mljet national park. Read full review
