Spotlight on Croatia

Burgess Charter broker, Seonaid Thomas, introduces some of the must-see sites of the Croatian coastline.

Croatia's answer to St Tropez, with its famous venue ‘Carpe Diem’, the place that pioneered the inside/outside club scene in this part of the world. Check it out for early evening mojitos overlooking the harbour. There's also the Carpe Diem beach club across the water, on the nearby island of Marinkovac. More relaxed, for cocktails and massages on the edge of the Adriatic.

Take a stroll around the ancient city walls – 2km long, 6m thick and 25m high in parts. It's the best way to get an overview of the Old Town. You might even catch a Shakespeare play on the Lovrjenac Fort terrace during the Summer Festival. Alternatively come down at the Pile Gate on the edge of the sea and you're on the spot for a great restaurant: Nautika. Tuck in to fresh fish cooked with love by Head Chef Mario Bunda.

Visit spectacular Diocletian’s Palace in Split, one of the most famous sites in the Croatian Adriatic. Go during the late afternoon to avoid the crowds and don’t forget your camera.

This island group is so ravishingly beautiful that much of it has been designated a National Park. Explore crater-like lakes by tender, make the most of flat calm seas for watersports, lap up Dugi Otok’s amazing moonscape, and spend your nights at anchor off tiny, uninhabited islets.

It’s not all about islands! With a yacht you can navigate inland up the Krka River to the little town of Skradin, then pick up a private guide and launch to continue upriver to the dramatic Skradinski Buk waterfall. Magical!

One of the prettiest Croatian islands. Just a few paces from your town quay mooring, you are in the heart of a cobblestoned medieval town. By night, seek out the ‘moreška’ sword dance, performed here and nowhere else.

Odysseus was shipwrecked on this island and stayed seven years. You’ll see why, whether you choose to explore by tender, kayak or on foot. Park your floating palace in the virtually landlocked anchorage off the village of Polace, and soak up the tranquillity.

Since you can’t start and finish your charter in Croatian waters, why not build in a little time for this under-appreciated tiny country? Explore dramatic, fjord-like inlets and the 1,000 year old port of Kotor, where you can board or leave your yacht. Until the next time…
