With its rugged, stunning coast, mountainous terrain, unending sunshine and a plethora of islands, it is little wonder that Croatia’s Adriatic coast is an intriguing charter destinations. A Croatian holiday gives you the opportunity to explore historic cities and ancient ruins, secluded anchorages and traditional fishing villages, all in a landscape that is one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Not to be missed

Of Croatia’s 3,600 miles of glimmering coastline, the most famous stretch is its southernmost region: the Dalmatian Coast, where dramatic limestone cliffs rise from the deep, and islands are scattered just offshore (the most appealing are Hvar and Korčula). Here you’ll find Croatia’s top tourist town, Dubrovnik, and the big city of Split, with its impressive Roman ruins. Enjoy a good sail southward to Polace located in the National Park on the island of Mljet: one of the most seductive of all the Adriatic islands. Much of the island is covered by forests and the rest is dotted with fields, vineyards and small villages.
