1. Delightful Croatia Weather

Sailing in Dubrovnik means you can avail of the ideal conditions for boat charters. From April to September, the city sees a mild breeze (this time of year, winds average 10-20 knots) and the average temperature remains a pleasant 28°C. August is the best month to swim in the sea, as water temperatures reach a high of 25°C – perfect for your week of sailing on your catamaran or yacht charter. Blue skies, calm waters, and endless days of sunshine make a yacht charter in Dubrovnik a top choice for many sailors who flock to this city in Croatia every year. If you wish, you can choose yachts, catamarans, or any boat you choose to have fans in the cabins should the weather be too hot in the marina.

2. Brilliant Beaches

A 3.5km walk from the Old Town is Lapad Beach, with ample bars and restaurants to avail of throughout your day visit. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fabulous views of the Old Town of Dubrovnik, with intricate details on the walls and buildings being a fascinating part of the city. Banje Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Croatia. Open all year round, it has a reputation for being very lively during the summer months. Sailing to Betina Cave is the best option for those looking for serenity and tranquility during their yacht charter in Dubrovnik. Only accessible by boat or catamaran, it is a great place to spend the day (or week!) relaxing and unwinding. During your bareboat rental holiday, most of the picturesque beaches will be pebbled rather than sandy but offer exquisite access to the Dalmatian Coastline. If you fancy a trip across to Mjlet National Park, you can spend the day exploring this gorgeous haven before getting a well-needed rest in your cabins in the marina.

With your catamaran or luxury yacht safe in the marina, spend the day in Sponza Palace which comprises an elegant mix of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Next, wander towards the Church of St. Blaise, which was erected in Dubrovnik in 1715 and it dedicated to the city’s patrol saint. If you are interested in medicine, factor a visit to the Franciscan Monastery into your week as it is the third oldest pharmacy in the world – one of the highlights of a sailing trip to Croatia, with many things available at a great price!

ACI Marina

Located just 6km from the Old Town, ACI Marina Dubrovnik is found at southern end of the Croatian coastline. The marina is open all year long and has 380 berths for wet boats. It can be very busy during the summer weeks, so it is highly recommended to book in advance. The marina has an array of facilities to cater for any need you may have during your sailing trip, including a fuel station, showers, a grocery store, restaurants, and much more. Recognized for its cleanliness and efforts to preserve the environment, the marina was awarded a blue flag. A yacht charter from this base is the perfect location to start your journey along this unique coastline.

An Afternoon on Lokrum Island

Sail your boat rental 15 minutes away from the port of Dubrovnik and land on the impressive Lokrum island. Wander the lush botanical gardens or visit the old monastery. Colorful peacocks and rabbits are the locals of this petite paradise of Croatia. It is common to see them freely roaming around the protected nature reserve. Looking to cool off after all this exploring of the day? Take a dip in the small salt-filled lake known as the “dead sea”. Cars and overnight stays are forbidden on this pristine island. Although, no one lives on the island, there are a few restaurants to dine at while visiting. Spend the night in your cabins and wake up to some of the best views of Croatia.
