Before you set sail, Split offers a great opportunity to sample some of the country’s finest cuisine. Although in the past the city had a reputation for simplicity when it came to the food on offer, it has gone on to gain something of a gastronomic name for itself. Whether it is a light bite or a Croatian feast, the city centre is now packed with good-quality eateries to suit all tastes.

Another great way to pass the time in Split is to immerse yourself in the many marketplaces located in the town. The experienced vendors make the most of the local goods on offer, and there is plenty to browse, from fresh fruit and vegetables to unique Croatian gifts.

If all that eating and shopping sounds like too much hard work, you could prepare for your sailing break by soaking up the sun on Bacvice beach. Only a short walk from the centre of the city, the beach is popular with both tourists and locals alike, and it is a great place to begin your Croatian sailing adventure.
