Dubrovnik

Southern Dalmatia’s most famous town, Dubrovnik, is simply unique; like a place from another time, its setting is sublime. This remarkable old town is a highlight of any trip to Croatia, capturing the essence of the medieval Mediterranean.


The Elaphiti Islands, a small archipelago consisting of several forested islands stretching northwest of Dubrovnik, is accessible to sailors from Dubrovnik charter bases. There are seven other uninhabited islands and islets waiting to be explored.


Further North is the island of Korcula with its glorious old town and traditional wine cultivation. Mljet island, a seductive green island is just south of Korcula. Mljet National Park makes up most of the island, and there are several villages, two salt water lakes - Veliko and Malo Jezero, and a Benedictine monastery. In Polace there are some of the best natural anchorages in the Adriatic.


Out of the way and less visited is Lastovo Island, also a Nature Park, where you will certainly find a quiet spot or two.


Dubrovnik itself has a multitude of museums, palaces, churches, and art galleries. Its ancient walls are now a promenade which is an attraction not to be missed. The walls run an uninterrupted course of approximately 1,940 metres in length, encircling most of the old city offering impressive views across the Adriatic and the town.


Dubrovnik is especially interesting to boaters who wish to sail around the Southern Adriatic Islands. If you wish to rent a boat from Dubrovnik, ACI Dubrovnik Marina is a good charter base to start from.


Dubrovnik is connected by bus line with other Croatian and European cities. There is the Adriatic coastal road to Split and a highway from Split to Zagreb. The city's main ferry port is connected with major Croatian ports such as Split and Rijeka, and regular international ferry lines from Ancona, Pescara and Bari. Dubrovnik International Airport has worldwide connections.


Sailing conditions in southern Dalmatia are pleasant. Similar to the rest of the Adriatic with Force 2-5 is the norm. The Bora or Sirocco can be a little stronger and seas can be choppier, especially in late afternoon and early evening when a combination of opposing winds and currents can cause a buildup. Line-of-sight navigation makes island hopping easy. Recommended for sailors from novice to some experience. Dubrovnik is one of the top destinations to charter a yacht while on a sailing holiday in Croatia.
