Dubrovnik – The Charm of Dalmatian Coast
Without a doubt Croatia is a charming holiday destination. The picteresque landscape with lovely little houses, fantastic beaches and incredible flora will certainly make you fall in love with the land. And what could be better than spending time around there on a boat rental?
Get some basic knowledge before you go
Especially since the weather conditions are really favourable. Between June and September the average temperatures are around 20 degrees. It’s also good to have knowledge about the winds in the area. There are 8 main types in the Adriatic region. First one would be Bura – it’s a north-western, hard to predict, cold and dry. Another is Jugo, which is south-western, warm and relatively safe. Then there’s summertime Maestral, north-western and responsible for nice weather. Others include: Tramuntana from the north, Grego from the north-east, Levant from the east, Ostro from the south and Lebic from the south-west.
What are the most appealing marinas?
As for where to start from, one of the three most popular places would be Dubrovnik. You can easily get there by plane. The international airport is located about 20 kms from the city centre. Like all the marinas in Croatia, it’s located on Dalmatian coast. The city has an engaging history that will make stopping there more than worthwhile. There are still some Renaissance buildings – even if only few of them survived. Take some time to admire Sponza Palace, Rector’s Palace or Saviour Church. And if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you’ll certainly find walls around the town interesting.
From there, you can sail to 56 marinas (not counting members only ones). What are the best places to stop at? One of them would be Skradin, marina which is the central port of National Park Krka. You’ll fall in love with the lovely waterfalls! And if little endearing towns are your thing, do visit Primosten – or at least look at the old town which looks special thanks to it’s location on a hill.
What to do and what to try in Croatia?
Of course there are plenty things to do in Croatia. You can go for water sports or check out the nightlife in one of the tourist towns. But one of the musts is certainly Croatian cuisine. Some delicious olive oil, pasta, vegetables and seafood will feature in various combinations. And there will be delicious wine to go with it! Remember that the ones from Istria and Krka have an Italian taste, while in the South you’ll most likely find the red Mediterrean style red wine.
If you decide to rent a boat and go to Croatia, there are few more things you need to know. The currency there is Kuna which can be easily exchanged at banks at exchange offices. Time zone is GMT +1 hour or +2 hours in the summer. Any regulations go together with those of European Union.
It’s certainly a delightful place to spend summer in so if it grabbed your attention – don’t hesitate to rent a yacht and start one of the best adventures of your life. We’re sure you won’t regret it and you’ll bring home many amazing memories.
