Sailing getaways to Croatia for couples - Honeymoon trips to remember

A City for Romance

Lord Byron referred to Dubrovnik as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’, and it’s a term that has stuck because its unquestionable beauty is sure capture your hearts as soon as you step foot in this ancient city. Soak in the views as you walk the city walls in the Old Town, pop in and out of luxury boutiques, and indulge in a sweet Croatian treat from one of the local bakeries.

Enjoy Dreamy Clear Turquoise Waters on Your Sailing Getaway

If you’ve always imagined your honeymoon to be like something out of a fairy tale, the shimmering turquoise waters around the Croatian Islands will make your dream a reality. Lay on the shoreline as the waves gently lap over your legs before heading out into the ocean to catch glimpses of the vibrant and colourful life that exists beneath the surface.

Get Away From it all on Marvellous Mljet

Putting aside the legend that says Calypso kept Odysseus captive on Mljet as he tried to return home to his wife Penelope from the Trojan War, spending time on this stunning island will give you space to truly enjoy each other’s company away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Wander hand-in-hand through the pristine national park, kayak across beautiful blue lakes and enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear waters. It really is as heavenly as it sounds!

Dine in Style

Sample some of the most divine fresh seafood dishes overlooking the ocean as the sun begins to set and sends vibrant pinks and oranges cascading across the evening sky. Locally sourced truffles and vegetables alongside locally made olive oil and wine will complete your dining experience, so make sure to indulge on your special celebratory sailing getaway.
