Croatia is an absolutely stunning place to charter a yacht with so many islands, history and culture to explore you can simply not see it all in one visit. The eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea belongs to Croatia but is really nothing more than a series of islands. The islands still retain that sense of remoteness that suggests a place that time forgot. There are just over 1,000 bays and harbors each filled with berths and anchorages to spend the night. A truly magical place to vacation, especially for the yachting enthusiast.
The weather is classically Mediterranean with mild winters and dry summers. In summer, the mean temperature along the coast is 77 °F. In winter, the coast has a mean temperature of 35 °F (in the north) and 48 °F (in the south). Summer is usually the driest season and winter the rainiest with twice the amount of rain falling during this season than in the summer months. The sunniest island is Hvar which boasts of 2,700 hours of sun per years!
There is so much to see and sail in this group of islands. If you start your yacht charter vacation here, you will see ninth century walls rising from the water's edge. This town is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe and miraculously escaped serious damage in Serbo-Croatian War. Within the ancient walls of this city are many, many alleyways and a broad Renaissance boulevard called the "Stradun". This medieval walled Croatian city is over 1,000 years old. Dubrovnik (the jewel of the chain) has been listed as a city-monument on the UNESCO cultural heritage register. On your charter yacht vacation, particular sights of interest here include the oldest pharmacy in Europe, located in the Friars Minor monastery (1317).
