Croatia is a wonderful and scenic country with many things to do and places to see. In particular, there are many wonderful places around the Croatian coast which make for a fascinating voyage of exploration. When exploring the coast of Croatia sailing  holidays are undoubtedly among the best options, and there are several places that are truly unmissable.

Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic” by Lord Byron, Dubrovnik is a truly wonderful town to visit. Its unique style of architecture, magnificent walls and wealth of shops, cafes and museums make for one of the finest tourist spots in Croatia.

Korcula is the largest of 48 islands in an archipelago just off the mainland of Croatia, and is almost certainly the most spectacular. Dominated by dense woods, the island is also home to some beautiful little coves and scenic hillscapes. There is also a small, old walled town that looks very much like Dubrovnik’s little sister town.

Hvar island has been called “the Croatian Madiera” for it is the most sun-soaked of all the country’s islands. It is an island of quiet little villages set among vistas of pine-covered hills and fields full of lavender, and is considered an essential stop for yachts making their way through the region. The medieval Hvar town, in particular, has a charming character reminiscent of Venice.
