Yacht Charter Rovinj

Rovinj is a large and busy tourist town on the Istrian peninsula, in northern Adriatic.  This picturesque, arty town with its colourful houses and striking architecture is located on the west coast of Istria and is an active fishing port. It is a choice place to collect a charter boat for a sailing holiday.


Well known for its history, beauty and charm, Rovinj is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia.  St. Euphemia dominates the town overlooking the attractive old quarter, numerous street galleries and crooked cobbled streets, just made for wandering. Every summer the largest open-air art exhibition of the Adriatic coast takes place in this enchanting place.


There is a large harbour and the ACI Rovinj Marina, offering a number of charter boats all year around. There are also many hotels, holiday villages and several campsites.


The Rovinj archipelago, with its 14 islets, makes for very pleasant sailing. Sveta Katarina and Crveni Otok are the most popular in this line of stunning islands waiting to be explored by sail or motorboat.


Rovinj is well connected with the rest of Istria and with larger cities in the region such as Trieste, Rijeka, Ljubljana and Zagreb. There are bus and train lines to Pula, Rijeka and Zagreb. The nearest international airports are Pula 37 km away, Rijeka 124 km away, Trieste IT 100 km away, Zagreb 250 km away, Venice 260 km away and Ljubljana 190 km away.


During the summer, there is ferry line to Venice. Other ferry lines are available from Pula which is close by.


The calm waters of the Northern Adriatic and the mild climate make for good sailing conditions. The myriad of islands provide protection and this section of the coast has many well-equipped marinas. In summer there is very little chance of the Bora: the strong, cold Northeasterly wind from the mountains. The daily Maestral wind is friendly to sailors. It usually starts blowing around 9 or 10 in the morning, reaches its strongest in the afternoon and fades at sundown. Maestral is generally weaker in the north Adriatic than in its south. This region is an appealing area to explore both on and off a boat.
