Split is truly the heart of Dalmatia. It is the biggest Croatian coastal town as well as one of the oldest ones. Split will surely charm you with its rich history, bustling everyday life, mild Mediterranean climate, delicious seafood-based cuisine, beautiful mountain views just off the coast, and the unavoidable local custom of slowly sipping coffee at the city’s main promenade while watching people go by.
Thanks to its excellent geographic position, yacht charter in Split gives you plenty of opportunities to plan unique sailing routes and busy itineraries, so it is a great starting point for your sailing holiday in Croatia.
Sailing in the Split area is fairly simple, which makes it ideal for beginners. However, marinas and ports can get rather crowded during the high season, so booking a berth in advance is the best way to go.
