Peaceful anchorage, Croatia
For those looking for the best bareboat charter deals for the Croatian Adriatic coast, there are plenty of offers to be found, with 50% discounts available on normal prices.
With some of the most famously crystal-clear waters in the whole of the Mediterranean region, gentle sailing and warm winds, and literally hundreds of islands hugging the Croatian coastline, the Adriatic Sea represents one of the best areas for bareboat chartering in all of Europe.
Many of those islands off the Croatian coast are wooded and protected as national parkland; some are barren, rocky and uninhabited; others are home to atmospheric old towns and castles with winding cobbled streets populated by pretty shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.
Together they provide excellent anchorages of all kinds: beautiful sandy beaches, pretty bays that are tucked away and tranquil, historic locations of architectural and cultural interest, and popular spots buzzing with activity and nightlife.
Among the most popular bareboat charter haunts to dot that 250 mile-or-so stretch of splendid coastline from Pula in the north to Dubrovnik in the south are the Kornati archipelago, and the city and surrounds of Split.
Split is famous for its sheer beauty and splendid beaches. Diocletian’s Palace dates from the 4th century B.C. and lies at its historical heart, while the Dalmatian islands to the south blend magnificent medieval chapels with stylish boutiques and dining.
To the north, meanwhile, and located around the island of Kornat (about 20 miles south of Zadar), the islands and islets of the Kornati archipelago offer superb scuba diving, trekking and fresh seafood restaurants. To be explored are the protected pine forests of the Kornati and Krka national parks, and Nature Park Vransko Lake – an ornithological reserve and game fishing ground.
With such a variety of anchorages, sights and activities, as well as some of the best sailing conditions around, there really is no better way to experience Croatia and the Adriatic Sea.
