Many of you know Croatia as a most sought-after tourist and sailing destination. But have you heard of a gem on the Istrian Peninsula called Rovinj? Well we were enamoured by this ancient and quaint town with its turquoise seas, picture-perfect colourful houses and shiny, well-worn cobblestone streets that surprised us at every turn.
The Monachus Yachts boatyard is located in the Muć municipality's industrial zone in Dalmatia, about 30 kilometres inland from Split on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. There they manufacture and produce vessels in the controlled environment of their own production facility.
Cruising into the ACI Marina, Rovinj: We were coming in from the north and approached the ACI Marina from between St. Catherine Island and the town harbour's breakwater, at the head of which is a lighthouse. We cautiously rounded the shoal marked by a yellow and black buoy.
