The best places & specific destinations to visit during your sailing holidays in Dalmatia:
The untouched paradise of Lastovo
The small island of Lastovo is a real insider secret. Still largely untouched by tourism, Lostovo has retained its original charm. The island is a dream destination for architecture lovers and nature lovers alike, and should definitely be included in a sailing holiday itinerary of Dalmatia. In the biggest city of the island you can find impressive buildings in the style of the Renaissance. Lastovo is also known for its scenic beauty. The island is considered to be the best place in Europe to admire the starry sky.
Dubrovnik and his little sister Korcula
A visit to Dubrovnik is more or less a must when sailing in Croatia. The city also known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a historic city with captivating ancient beauty. Discover the centre of Dubrovnik surrounded by its old city wall and enjoy the unique view over white houses and orange roofs, that look on over to the deep blue sea. From Dubrovnik you can set sail to the city’s little sister city of Korcula - where It is also important to visit the island's vineyards and taste the native wine.
Sail to Hvar
When sailing into Split, a visit to the island of Hvar should not be missed either. Hvar is famous for its prominent visitors and nightlife. However, the island has much more to offer. Especially in July, when the lavender fields are in bloom, and the scent of lavender and rosemary fills the air. Furthermore, you can enjoy the crystal clear water that surround the island by sailing trip.
