Sailing expedition of the Adriatic
Blessed with unique coastal landscape, pine wood beaches and more than 1000 islands Croatia easily lures increasing numbers of visitors for sailing vacations each year. The feeling of sailing in Croatia might be compared to the French Riviera in the 60s of the last century. In translation, still unspoiled.
With enough time on your hand, sailing from Istria all the way to the ''Pearl of the Adriatic'' – Dubrovnik should be on your bucket list.
On your way down there are some remarkable things to see. Let's just mention a few. Brijuni Islands which Marshal Tito used as his formal residence during the period of Yugoslavia. A place where he hosted Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Sophia Loren and many others. Certainly you will be mesmerized by the beauty of National Park Kornati islands which George Bernard Shaw described by saying:
“On the last day of Creation God desired to crown His work, and thus created the Kornati islands out of tears, stars and breath.“
Maybe you would like to visit a heart or fish shaped islands as well. As incredible as it sounds yes, we have those in Croatia. Anchoring at famous Hvar, Vis or Marco Polo's birthplace Korčula should not be just tempting, but a must. Visiting those islands provides a remarkable experience since the traditions of wine and olive oil production dates back to 4th century BC. Indulging yourself in some gastronomical delights while ashore is imperative. If you like diving, Vis area offers an incredible amount of WWI and WWII shipwrecks, all fallen in battle.
Can you imagine seeing the famous Dubrovnik walls from the deck of your sailboat while watching the sunset? Such a nice sight. Oh, we forgot to mention swimming in crystal clear sea, docking in secluded bays, exploring tiny villages and deserted ''Robinson Crusoes'' islands as well as claiming them for a day. Very tempting, we know.
