With its beautiful beaches, crystal blue sea and delightful, historic towns, Croatia is fast becoming one of Europe’s premier summer hotspots. But its allure certainly doesn’t end when the swarms of tourists disappear and the temperatures start to drop. Indeed, many locals would argue that the months of October and November are the best times to visit Croatia – with warm weather lasting well into autumn and sea temperatures still allowing for day time swims. So, with this in mind, we have prepared a Croatia yacht charter itinerary for those hoping to head away for a last-minute yacht sharing holiday.
An Unforgettable Croatia Yacht Charter Itinerary Awaits
The obvious first stop on your charter is to explore the town of Pula, an extremely popular destination in both summer and winter due to the Pula amphitheatre – a 2,000-year old arena which is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world. Under the searing summer heat the architectural appeal can be somewhat overlooked, but an autumn Croatia yacht charter itinerary provides the perfect opportunity to visit the arena.
From Pula, enjoy a gentle sail to the island of Losinj, with its multiple beaches, diving centre and pretty harbours such as Mali Losinj with is plethora of bars and restaurants which are buzzing even in autumn. Many visitors come to Losinj to walk in the beautiful forests which cover the island – so make time for a bracing hike in the hinterland.
Rab is next on our journey, an island which claims to have more sandy beaches than any other place in the Adriatic sea. Rab is also called the ‘happiest’ and ‘sunniest’ island, with a friendly population, delicious food and excellent local wines. What’s not to like?
Next is the hidden gem of Olib, a virtually uninhabited island which has mile upon mile of deserted beaches and just one supermarket. Make sure to stock up on supplies and enjoy being well and truly off the beaten track.
Once you have had enough solitude from your Croatia yacht charter itinerary make a trip to Zadar, arguably the country’s coolest destination. Zadar has a wonderful promenade that is perfect for an early evening stroll, as well as some of the best restaurants in Croatia, which line the marble cobbled streets. If you are truly lucky you might get to experience Zadar’s legendary sunsets – which Alfred Hitchcock famously said were ’the world’s most beautiful’ when he visited the island in 1964.
Last stop on our end of season Croatia yacht charter itinerary is the Kornati National Park, an archipelago of 89 uninhabited islands, islets and rocks in an area of 20 km2. You will need a valid ticket to sail through the islands – but it’s well worth the effort.
The perfect boat to compliment your trip
Now, let’s talk about the yacht itself. Available through our unique yacht co-ownership scheme, we are excited to be able to offer the brand new Bavaria 420 Virtess; ready and waiting for you in Pula, on the southern tip of the Istria peninsula.
The 2018 Bavaria, which comfortably sleeps six, is available to co-own for as little as 132,000 euro – allowing you to enjoy priceless sailing holidays at a hugely reduced cost. What could be better?
