If you're dreaming about deserted islands, and sleeping to the sound waves that slowly swaying ship, then sailing the Croatian coast is an ideal realization of your dreams. The cultural wealth and natural beauty of South Dalmatia - Dubrovnik, Korcula and Hvar offer you an unforgettable vacation. Dubrovnik is a perfect starting point for sailors to explore the southern Adriatic Sea, particularly the beautiful islands: Elafiti (Lopud, Koločep, Šipan, Saint Andrew), Mljet, Pelješac and Korčula.
A large number of agencies for sailing and motor yachts are based in Dubrovnik. Most of them work in Dubrovnik ACI Marina, located in Komolac, near the city. If you rent a sailboat or motor yacht across agencies, and coming into the marina, there are several things you must do. One of the most important things the application (check in), and we recommend that for enough time to take in order to be well acquainted with the ship and equipment rented to him. After registering in order to be prepared you need to do shopping for holiday, and not to be seen as less important thing, because the sea is unpredictable and you certainly do not want to run out of food and drinks in case of contingencies. Purchase can be done at the marina, although they cost more than the city, or you can order the host vessel, which usually deliver products at the marina, at no additional charge. The rule says: The more you devote the time reported, the less time you'll need on logout.
For experienced sailors in search of adventure, we suggest a visit Palagruža Island, situated in the middle of the Adriatic Sea between the Italian and Croatian coast. The island is about 1300 meters and width is 200 meters. Palagruža is the farthest island in Croatia and it is famous for its lighthouse, which stands out even more since 1850. Today they are one of the inhabitants of the island lighthouse. Because of its isolation and natural beauty and rich fishing area around the sea, Palagruža is a unique tourist destination and a favorite among fishermen and sailors.
