Dream Yacht Charter, Croatia


Your sailing holiday begins! Hop aboard a Dream Yacht Charter catamaran for a week-long cruise discovering some of the gorgeous islands of the Adriatic and experiencing the best of Croatia’s coast.

Day 1
After taking in Dubrovnik and its atmospheric old town, you will board your yacht at Dubrovnik port this evening. Your cruise will start by sailing to the glassy Adriatic waters of Zaton, where you will anchor for the night.

Day 2
Your first full day aboard begins with breakfast, served by your crew, before visiting the sandy beach of Sunj on the island of Lopud, whose lush green landscapes are studded with olive groves and pine woods. This is one of the loveliest beaches in Croatia and is an idyllic spot to swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters. After lunch, sail on to the bay of Sipanska Luka on the island of Sipan, for a stroll and a drink in a local bar.

Day 3
You will head north today to Mljet National Park, anchoring in the bay of Polace to explore the park’s stunning scenery. In the afternoon, there’s an optional visit to the park’s vast salt lakes, one of which has an islet in the middle housing the remains of a 12th-century monastery.

Day 4
As you reach the halfway point of your cruise, visit Korcula to take in its rich history and sample its famous wines. Anchoring at the bay of Luka near the old town, discover historic Korcula on an optional guided tour, or explore on your own if you prefer.

Day 5
Set sail for yet another highlight of Croatia’s coast, the Peljesac Peninsula, a land of vineyards and pretty villages. Visit a local winery and sample some of the peninsula’s best wines – the plentiful sunshine here is perfect for grape-growing.

Day 6
You’ll make a beeline today for the private and secluded bay of Marculeti, where you can don your snorkelling gear or enjoy a swim. After lunch, your next stop is Ston, the historic northern border of the Dubrovnik Republic, which is famous for its oyster farms – and you will have the chance to try some fresh oysters.

Day 7
On the final full day of your trip, you will head back to Dubrovnik and witness the striking walls of the old town from the sea as you sail past the city. Enjoy lunch and a swim on the island of Lokrum, before anchoring for the night back at Dubrovnik’s port. You will disembark the next morning.
