THE DALMATION COAST
Croatia has been a hit destination and the biggest tourist surprise in the Mediterranean the past ten years. It was rated in the top 5 destinations to visit in the world by various international travel organizations.
Its natural and cultural heritage qualifies it undisputed as one of the world’s best cruising destinations. With rapidly improving infrastructure and a strong will to provide five-star services, Croatia may soon be unbeatable as a mega yacht destination.
Croatia has an extremely attractive and diverse coastal landscape. The country has as many as 1185 islands, islets, reefs and rocks. The Croatian coastline extends to the length of 5951 kilometres. The characteristics of the Dalmatian coast are ideal for cruising and sailing. The islands and mainland stretch from Rijeka to Dubrovnik. The Dalmatian islands and mainland are abound with bays, coves and ports – large and small – in which moorings or anchorages can be found. These are ideal places to navigate by sail, but also to cruise on a motor yacht or a sports fishing boat. No place is far away from another place, and if you want to you can spend the whole day sailing. If the weather turns bad or a strong wind picks up, there is always some place nearby to find shelter and enjoy the scenic views of the Dalmatian coast.
