The Adriatic Sea

We love everything to do with sea, so it’s probably no surprise this stunning stretch of water makes it on to our most-loved list. You can snorkel and scuba dive amongst magnificent marine life, shipwrecks and coral reefs, try your hand at windsurfing or paddle boarding, or simply enjoy an early morning swim which will surely start your day off in the best possible way.


This beautiful island is home to one of Europe’s oldest towns, and here you’ll be able to explore ancient streets and see the UNESCO protected Plains that are full of vineyards and home to the most unbelievable views.


Many regard Dubrovnik as the jewel in Croatia’s crown, and one glance at the incredible architecture, spectacular restaurants and rich history will quickly tell you why.

Diocletian’s Palace

Located in Split, this ancient palace is protected by UNESCO and has been bursting with life for centuries. Oh and if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you may recognise the basement as Daenarys’ Throne Room!

Explore Idyllic Islands on Your Yacht Getaway

All stunningly beautiful, each island has its own distinct atmosphere and something unique to offer. Explore ancient architecture, sample fresh olive oil, enjoy fresh seafood, and recharge your batteries surrounded by spectacular views.

Feel at One with Nature

As you can wander through lush pine lined paths, kayak across crystal clear salt lakes and explore a Benedictine Monastery, Mljet’s National Park is easily one of the most special locations in the whole of Europe.

The Food

With menus full of dishes which make the most out of super fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, it’s impossible not to be won over by Croatian cuisine.
