Yacht Charter Vrsar

Vrsar is a small town near Poreč and a popular yacht charter base in Istria. It is located at the estuary of Lim Bay, on the west coast of Istria. Lim Bay is over 10km long and extends almost to the medieval town of Pazin. It is surrounded by steep hills on both sides, sometimes exceeding 100 meters in altitude. Lim Bay is a unique and spectacular place for sailing.


The old town of Vrsar sits up on a ridge surrounded by lushly forested hills. Vrsar is a quieter option than the nearby busy resorts of Rovinj and Poreč.


 In front of Vrsar, there is an alluring archipelago with 18 uninhabited islets, perfect for discovering by boat. Sailing further south past Rovinj are the 14 islands of the Rovinj archipelago, an island complex of outstanding beauty. The Brujini National Park is even further south providing plenty of superb sailing in this area. Excellent tourist infrastructure and well-equipped marinas are features of this region.


Stunning Blue flag beaches line the coast close to Vrsar and the Istrian hinterland is also easily reachable.


Vrsar is well connected by coastal road and the Istrian highway. The nearest international airports are Pula 60 km away, Rijeka 135 km away, Trieste IT 80 km away, Zagreb 255 km away, Venice 245 km away and Ljubljana 180 km away. There is a ferry line in high season between Venice and Rovinj, which is just 5km away.


Sailing conditions are exceptional in this area. Winds along the coast are mostly moderate during the summer months, predominantly from NW and rarely exceeding force 4/5. During early spring and autumn conditions can be less settled. The calm waters of the Northern Adriatic and the mild climate attract the sailing crowd and the many small islands provide protection and safe anchorage.
