When you think of spending a week in Croatia sailing on board a Bavaria Cruiser, a Sun Odyssey or bareboat catamaran, Vodice may not be the first place you consider. However, just one day is needed to see why this is an amazing place to charter a yacht.
A variety of diverse and alluring beaches render Vodice an ideal location for a yacht charter for anyone looking to top up their tan or take a break from sailing the length of Croatia. Leave your boat in the berths of the marina and mosey down to Plava Beach, which is the most popular in the region. The golden sandy stretch of coastline is perfect for a spot of relaxation and offers a different sleeping spot than the cabins of your yacht. Why not sail a little further from the centre of Vodice to Zamalin, which proves popular with young people and offers access to some stellar restaurants and bars to enjoy at a great price? With coastlines as captivating as these, you could easily spend the week of your yacht charter in Vodice soaking up the sun. Ask your skipper where best to dock your boat and enjoy the tranquility!
Of course, spending the day under the sun in your yacht charter is the best way to explore this corner of Croatia, but the nightlife in Vodice is not one to be missed. Swap your cabins for the dancefloor and explore the range of bars and clubs which renders Vodice a vibrant hub. One of the most iconic nightclubs in Croatia is found here, Hacienda, and although it is an unforgettable experience, you may have to leave the berths of the marina early to ensure the queue is not too long. Looking for something at a lower price and a truly authentic experience in Vodice? Check out Konoba Maestro, which often sees people spend the night after a day of sailing. Found in a tavern built with gorgeous stone work, you will make friends and dance the night away – just make sure you find the right yacht and cabins when you return to ACI Marina Vodice. Your skipper will know of some exclusive bars, or if you have a bareboat charter, why not have a little party on board the yacht?
Vodice is an extraordinarily beautiful corner of Croatia, with ample exploration opportunities along the length of the Adriatic coast. Kornati National Park is a magical sailing destination, perfect for island-hopping in the Croatian sun. Located just over 20km from Vodice, sailing here may require a little experience (if you have a bareboat yacht charter) if the wind is a little strong, but the natural beauty here is second-to-none. Your skipper may be well-used to sailing in this location. However, should you wish to leave your yacht charter in the marina for a day, there are some equally as captivating sites to visit with a day visit inland. Krka National Park is often touted as one of the most exquisite natural playgrounds of Croatia, and the iconic waterfalls are a famous symbol of Croatia. Thankfully, this is just a 10-minute journey inland from Vodice, meaning you can easily do this trip and be back in the cabins of your yacht for an early night.
After a day in the sun sailing the length of Croatia, you will certainly work up an appetite. Once you have docked your boat in the berths of ACI Marina Vodice, take a stroll into the old town to discover some tantalising dishes. Many establishments you will visit during the week specialise in Mediterranean seafood, prepared to absolute perfection. If you are feeling brave, try the octopus in Konoba Rustika, or sample the Asian fusion of Karmelski Dvori-Konoba Okit. Many restaurants offer a range of dining options, from a high to low price. If you are eating out during the week, make sure you budget appropriately. You can also have dinner on board your yacht charter, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sun set over Vodice.
If you are flying to Vodice to reach your yacht charter, the nearest airports are found in Split and Zadar. Although Zadar requires less travel time to ACI Marina Vodice, there are far more international connections through Split, with flights increasing in frequency during the week in high season. A train connection can be found to Sibenik also, with a connecting bus to the berths where your yacht charter will be docked. After a day of travel and a night in the cabins of your yacht, you will be well rested for a day of sailing with your skipper and discovering the beauty and charm of Croatia and Vodice.
