Dubrovnik - Trogir - Sibenik

Šibenik is a charming city known for its medieval fortresses, national parks, the UNESCO-protected St. James cathedral, and the Krka Waterfalls. According to National Geographic, the nearby-situated Kornati Archipelago is the best sailing region in the world. The unique archipelago landscape sharply contrasts lush green vegetation, deep blue sea, and bright blue skies, with many charming harbors and relaxing bays.

Trogir is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, situated between the cities of Split and Šibenik. Take some time to explore the narrow cobblestone streets and the town's wonderful little restaurants, local bars, and small boutiques. Our base in this area is located in the Baotić marina, the region's best starting point for a charter holiday.

Dubrovnik is ideal for a one-way charter to Trogir (near Split), as your starting or ending point. Located in the south of Croatia, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to beautiful marble streets, a scenic old harbor, and impressive churches. The ancient walls, built to protect the city from invasions, are still standing – walk in their shadow and breath the rich history of the Byzantine Empire. Our base in this area is located in the ACI marina Dubrovnik.

Croatia Islands Seasons & Climate

Croatia's coastline has a Mediterranean climate, with very mild winters and hot, sunny, and dry summers. Split and Dubrovnik are among the sunniest cities in Europe during summer, which is why vacations in Croatia sailing Split to Dubrovnik, or sailing Dubrovnik to Split, are so popular and enjoyable.

The Adriatic coast of Croatia has its own unique winds. The “Bora winds” are north-easterly and typically bring fine weather, although localized gusts can be strong. The “Sirocco winds” are warm and blow south-easterly; these winds often bring rain along the south Adriatic coast. The “Maestral winds” circulate air from the warmer interior out over the sea and often bring very fine weather.

Island of Mljet – Dubrovnik

DAY 7: Island of Mljet – Dubrovnik

7 DAYS - Itinerary 4

Suggested sailing itinerary: Dubrovnik - Montenegro - Dubrovnik

7 DAYS Dubrovnik - Montenegro - Dubrovnik

Another inevitable destination for sailing enthusiasts is a small mountainous country on the southwestern coast of the Adriatic Sea. Its sailing spots include: the Bay of Kotor, Herceg Novi, Tivat-Porto Montenegro, Budva and Sveti Stefan.

The Montenegrin coast gives you a different, but equally astonishing sailing experience. It is rockier than the Croatian coastline, but still offers you more than 73km of beautiful beaches and countless coves. Steep mountains and strong wind can pose difficulties for anchorage. Nevertheless, there are many great safe anchorage spots along the Montenegrin coastline. Keep in mind that Navigare Yachting does not charge you for the permit for international waters on this sailing route.

Saturday

The sailing route begins at Dubrovnik’s ACI Marina, Navigare Yachting’s base. From there, the route continues towards Cavtat, a small ancient town located on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. It will mesmerise you with a combination of beautiful nature and tourist contents. Cavtat bathes in mild climate, pine forests and beautiful beaches. Along the coast of the Tiha bay, you can find numerous recreational and sport facilities, as well as restaurants with traditional Mediterranean cuisine. There, you can also take a nice long walk and explore the city’s sights. As for the sailing part, the southwestern part of Cavtat’s harbour and the Tiha Bay are well adapted for anchorage, although often crowdy. In case of strong wind, we advise you to anchor at Srebreno, three miles north-northeast, since it offers a better shelter.

DAY 1: Dubrovnik – Cavtat (12 NM)

Sunday

Our next stop is Herceg Novi, a medieval town only 4 NM north from the entrance of the Gulf of Kotor. You can experience its medieval roots by visiting the citadel overlooking the city and three other fortresses: Kanli Kula (Turkey), Spaniola (Spanish), Venetian Citadel. The town itself is rich in narrow streets and stairs, vegetation and tourist attractions, best of which are accessible only by boat. The town’s harbour offers numerous berths for yachts up to 25m and one of the clearest sea spots in the eastern Adriatic. Anchoring is allowed west and east from the harbour: Meljine beach and port of Zelenika (which is also a border crossing passage, where you can solve all entrance-exit procedures).

DAY 2: Cavtat – Herceg Novi (16 NM)

Monday

We continue sailing to one of the most beautiful coasts in the world, the Budva Riviera, located 25 NM southeast of the exit of the Gulf of Kotor. It is a very pleasant sailing route and scenery that contains a 21km long coast and 17 sandy beaches, which replace a usually steep Montenegrin coastline. The centre of the Budva Riviera and the tourism in Montenegro is the town of Budva. It offers a great variety of beaches, hotels, clubs, and other tourist attractions, all enveloped in beautiful nature and history. While in Budva, we recommend visiting Sveti Stefan, a nearby fortified island connected to the mainland that gives you a wonderful view of pink-sand beaches and turquoise sea. The anchorage spot depends on the wind. There are several nearby places suitable for anchorage like Žanjice beach (5 NM from Herceg Novi), Mirišta (6 NM from Herceg Novi), but, depending on the weather, we recommend the Jaz beach (closer to Budva), cape Zavala (in case of south winds), and St Nicolas Island (in case of north winds).

DAY 3: Herceg Novi – Budva (30 NM)

Tuesday

Another inevitable stop is a small ancient fishing village guarder by a bay, rocky beaches and crystal clear sea – Bigovo (also: Bigova). It is a great holiday destination whether you are alone or in a group, as it offers a mild climate, plenty of sunny and dry days, and various sport and leisure activities. You can choose your perfect swimming spot from various rocky beaches. The anchorages we recommend are Dobra Luka (42 22 02.58 N 18 38 18.32 E) and Oblatna (42 22 51.95 N 18 39 21.78 E).

DAY 4: Budva – Bigovo (12 NM)

Wednesday

Kotor is truly a jewel of the Montenegrin coast, located in the Bay of Kotor, at the bottom of the Gulf of Kotor. It contains rich history, amazing nature, and numerous tourist attractions, all of which was recognised by UNESCO (World Heritage Site) and The Lonely Planet (No. 1 Best in Travel City in 2016). It is no wonder that the Bay of Kotor is placed among the ten most beautiful bays in the world, as it is guarded by high mountain peaks and filled with traditional architecture (especially in the Old Town). Recommended anchorage spots are: Port of Risan, Prčanj (western coast of the Bay of Kotor), Dobrota (eastern coast of the Bay of Kotor), northwestern part of the port of Kotor.

DAY 5: Bigovo – Kotor (22 NM)

Thursday

Moving from the Bay of Kotor to another breathtaking Montenegrin bay, the Boka Kotorska bay. In the centre of the bay lies an attractive young town of Tivat. It has two ports: marina Kaliman (natural) and Porto Montenegro (built). The latter one is well known for its luxurious architecture and yachts, as it is one of the fanciest marinas on the Adriatic. It is also known for its very affordable prices both in local tourist offers’ and in diesel supplies. There is no tax and the fuel is duty free, which makes it a good refill spot.

DAY 6: Kotor – Tivat (8 NM)

Friday

After spending some time in Tivat and getting ready for the return journey, head back to Dubrovnik and Navigare Yachting’s base in ACI Marina. There the sailing route ends, but it does not stop you from exploring the town of Dubrovnik some more.

DAY 7: Tivat – Dubrovnik (35 NM)

7 DAYS - Itinerary 5

Suggested sailing itinerary: Trogir to Trogir ROUTE 1

7 DAYS Trogir to Trogir

The 7-day sailing route that includes islands Brač, Hvar, Vis and Šolta.

Saturday

Trogir (Tragurium): If the idea of sipping your first-morning coffee by the beautiful Croatian sea sounds pleasant to you, Trogir is the place to be! Dating all the way back to ancient times and taking part in the UNESCO World Heritage, you will enjoy its numerous famous sights which reflect Trogir's long history and urban tradition, such as the Cathedral of St Lawrence, the Church of St Nicholas, Kamerlengo fortress, Ćipiko, Town Hall and the town gate. After getting to know Trogir's unique beauty, you can get a taste of Croatian gastronomy at local restaurants. The town does not go to sleep in the evening either, as you can visit many of the city's bars to get a glimpse of summer nights in Croatia.

Milna: To continue your vacation more actively, we suggest visiting Milna, the untouched jewel on the west coast of the Island of Brač. There you will find an untouched natural bay dating all the way back to Diocletian, surrounded by nice long sand and pebble beaches stretching nearby (Pasika, Osibova, Lučice, Maslinova, cove of Vlaška). Various sports and recreational contents are offered, including numerous sports playgrounds and sea-related activities (scuba-diving, surfing, swimming).

DAY 1: Trogir – Milna (Island of Brač) (12 NM)

Sunday

Stari Grad: Experience some more of the wonderful Croatian coast by surrounding yourself with its breathtaking nature. One of the must-see places is Stari Grad on the northern coast of the Island of Hvar. It is a perfect combination of the native way of life (vineyards, olives, forests) and a modern tourist spot. Many visitors come here to combine various aspects of the vacation: experiencing local gastronomy offer, sports and recreational activities, as well as beaches suitable for everyone's preferences (rocky, concrete, pebble). There is also a rich cultural programme, especially during summer: concerts, recitals and shows such as Stari Grad Summer Festival are not to be missed!

DAY 2: Milna – Stari Grad, swimming at Uvala Tiha (Island of Hvar) (14 NM)

Monday

Palmižana: We continue our journey in the same tone: lots of nature and possibilities. Palmižana is a lagoon bathing in crystal-clear sea belonging to Paklenski (also known as Pakleni) Otoci, the oldest and most famous resort and nautical marina of the Island of Hvar. It is most famous for its untouched nature, since any land traffic is absent and the location itself was very well kept and preserved as a cultural tourism spot (especially by the Meneghello family). You can either rest and breathe in the nature around you on one of the sandy beaches, or you can go on exploring the island by its extensive footpaths. It is a great location those of you who wish to relax, whether you are alone, with your significant other, or with a group of friends or family.

There are also a couple of tourist resorts (Jerolim, Stipanska, Palmižana, Vlaška), ensuring you a rich variety of activities once your energy is refilled.

The city of Hvar: The inevitable jewel of the Croatian Riviera and Dalmatian islands, with most sunny hours of all the islands in the Adriatic.

The city of Hvar: The inevitable jewel of the Croatian Riviera and Dalmatian Islands, with most sunny hours of all the islands in the Adriatic. It encompasses all the best of the Croatian coast: gentle climate, autochthon architecture and unforgettable scenery. Many people recognise that, so the island is often swarmed with guests. If this alone is not enough, there are various tourist offers ready to fill your stay: traditional restaurants, sightseeing, and nightlife. It is certainly not a bad idea to visit other places on the Island of Hvar, best known for its beauty and its long tradition in organised tourism.

Paklinski Otoci: If you are not already amazed by the Croatian Rivera, Paklinski (Pakleni) Otoci will do the trick! Not only does this chain of small isles carry a very interesting name (Hell’s Islands), but it is abundant in forests, beaches and lagoons intercepted by the azure Adriatic Sea. No wonder it is considered to be the prettiest part of Hvar’s (and even Croatian!) Riviera. Here you can take a break from the usual tourist centres and enjoy a nice quiet time in the isles’ hidden treasures. There are also a couple of tourist resorts (Jerolim, Stipanska, Palmižana, Vlaška), ensuring you a rich variety of activities once your energy is refilled.
