Taking a sailing holiday to Croatia can be a wonderful way to spend your getaway. A few very simple steps can make it all the better and help you ensure that you get your perfect Croatian sailing odyssey.

Choose a Route
Sailing holidays in Croatia come in different shapes and sizes. There are many different destinations to visit, and these all offer different experiences, advantages and activities. Work out which destinations you are interested in, and choose a route that will include them in order to make sure that you don’t miss out. For instance, foodies will not want to miss the seafood offered in konobas (a type of restaurant), while nightlife-lovers may be more interested in Hvar. History buffs, meanwhile, will not want to miss either the majesty of Dubrovnik or UNESCO-listed Stari Grad. You can either book on a standard route that suits your needs or look into tailored routes for a truly bespoke experience.

Pack and Prepare
There are a number of things you should make sure that you bring if you want to have the best possible experience. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks, as well as your own music player for use with the docks in the cabins. You should also bring clothes for warm weather, swimwear and comfortable footwear. You should also bring waterproofs, just in case, but for the most part sunscreen is the essential that will probably see the most use.

The last step is to enjoy your holiday, but this can be just the tiniest bit more complicated than it seems. You should make sure you are aware of any specific experiences you want to enjoy or sights you want to see, just to be certain you will not overlook them and be left with regrets. For instance, saying you want to see the beautiful city of Dubrovnik is all well and good, but that still leaves you with a whole city to explore. Are there any specific things to do and see that interest you, such as the Franciscan Monastery and Museum or the “Game of Thrones” walking tour?
