For you to experience the ultimate charter, we have found 102 exciting things to do in those magical Croatian waters, and we couldn’t wait to share them with you. But, before we share our full list of ideas, here are just a few things that you will experience on a Croatian charter.
1 - The northern peninsula is fast becoming like Tuscany: seafood, truffles and amazing local wines. For Roman ruins, Pula has some of the most intact structures anywhere in Europe.
2 - Known as ‘Little Venice’, much of the architecture was heavily influenced by invaders from across the Adriatic.
3 - Michelin star dining at Monte (the first to get the award in Croatia). “Cuisine that is spectacular, creative, trendy, almost theatrical” according to the Michelin Guide.
4 - Visit Utla near Malinska for the oldest olive grove in the Med. Family owned and handed down through the generations.
5 - UNESCO city of cultural and historical significance – amble through the busy streets making sure you buy a traditional cravat, named after the Croatian soldiers who wore small scarfs in battle against the French
6 - Subject to safety guidelines the Split summer Festival takes place from mid-July to mid-August and includes everything from jazz to open air opera, theatre and rock music concerts
7 - Take a limo or helicopter to Plitvice, north east and inland from Zadar. 16 lakes interconnected by spectacular waterfalls including Veliki Slap the biggest at 76 metres tall and nearly 100 metres wide.
8 - Anchor off and take the tender to the triangular St Nicholas Fortress. Built by the Venetians, a local guide will give you all the history. Lit up at night, the castle is a great backdrop for dinner on deck.
9 – Go Scuba diving and investigate the sunken Roman monasteries and Lucice caves, the Kabal peninsula or Purple Bay for scorpionfish and spotted sharks.
10 - Carpe Diem – epicentre of fashionable fun in Croatia. Bar, restaurant, beach club, and nightclub. Probably more for the 20-30 set but also cool for everyone. The bar and restaurant are on the waterfront in Hvar, the beach club / night club on nearby Marinkovac Island.
