Every person that considers him or herself a sealover will love to sail in Croatian waters. It’s the dream of anybody that goes ecstatic with images of desert islands and sparkling crystalline waters that softly hit the boat’s structure serving as the resting base of such dreamer. And it doesn’t matter if one rents a yacht for navigating by oneself, or if one prefers to rest while being transported in the cruiser across the islands, the fact is that navigating is the best way of discovering the impressive Croatian coasts.
There are nothing more than 1,185 islands and there could be even more if the smaller locations were also considered that for many doesn’t account as islands. The Croatian coast possesses a coast line of 1,178 km and is filled with beautiful bays. Many of these places are not accessible in a way other than through a boat.
