Known as ‘The Coast of a Thousand Islands’, the stunning shoreline of Croatia has long been a favourite yachting destination. Part of the appeal lies in its diversity. You’ll find glitz and glamour in places like Hvar, where fancy yachts and even fancier threads are de rigueur. But for those wanting peace and quiet, there are plenty of secluded coves and deserted islands to discover. The area offers superb sailing conditions with reliable winds, pristine seas and the warmest of welcomes. If your idea of a Mediterranean escape involves balmy days bobbing up and down on a sapphire sea in the shadow of an ancient walled town, Croatia is the place for you.
