What makes this the place to see and in which to be seen for luxury yacht charters?

Croatia has undergone seismic changes in recent years and has now opened up as one of the most fascinating destinations to be found in Europe. There are obviously still reminders of the more contemporary upheaval; however, visitors now have the chance to appreciate that there is a wealth of ancient history and culture waiting to be discovered. From ancient Roman-style palaces to Venetian-influenced villas, Croatia certainly has plenty of stunning architecture to rival anything found in France.

A quintessential part of any seaside holiday is finding that perfect beach; in Croatia, you are spoilt for choice. Sandy, pebbly, packed with convenient facilities or utterly secluded, there are plenty to choose from. The rugged terrain that covers much of Croatia’s coastline and islands gives these beaches a bold and unusual backdrop with far more character than many Mediterranean destinations.

If shopping is one of your favourite pastimes, the island of Hvar has plenty of offer with its mix of quaint little shops and high-end designer boutiques. Both Hvar and Brac offer vibrant nightlife for those who want to dance the night away. For those who prefer to simply enjoy a drink or good food in convivial company of an evening, Croatia has some of the most atmospheric sunsets around to admire from its many excellent restaurants. With so many benefits, it is easy to see why Croatia is rocketing up the must-visit list.
