The Dalmatian Islands are spectacular. There’s no other word to describe them and even then, we’re not sure it does them justice. The crystal-clear waters, miles of stunning beaches, concealed coves, charming towns and villages, and protected national parks really have to be seen to be believed, which is why we think a yacht getaway to the Dalmatian Islands is ideal for soaking up the beautiful culture and treating yourself to some rest and relaxation.

Mljet National Park

This UNESCO protected park can be a hubbub of activity, with water sports to take part in and challenging cycle tracks to explore. However there are also a variety of gentler paths to stroll along, and many natural salt water lakes to admire. The water temperatures are unexpectedly warm, even in the colder months, so a gentle swim could be just the thing to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated before tucking into a Croatian meal and watching the sun set.

Hvar Island

There’s always something happening in Hvar town, but as Hvar Island really does have something for absolutely everyone, there are plenty of quiet, serene locations that lend themselves perfectly to sitting back and soaking in some of the 2,700 sunshine filled hours each year. Stari Grad is a traditional local coastal town, where you can wander the quaint streets filled with beautiful shops selling the wares of talented local artisans, and enjoy charming eateries serving up the catch of the day.

Sail into Šcedro on Your Yacht Getaway

This small island is a protected nature park and is one of the most pristine examples of nature’s supreme beauty anywhere in the world. Sail across crystal clear waters into a secluded bay, taking in the views of the coastline before stepping ashore to enjoy a traditional Croatian meal and a gentle wander through Nastane, the island’s abandoned village. The atmosphere on Šcedro is impossible to accurately capture with just words alone, you simply must experience the way the sunshine hits the waters and the fresh scents of nature in its purest form.
