Step aboard a private Sail, Power, or all-inclusive Crewed yacht and discover a plethora of hidden gems that are nestled throughout the diverse and enchanting Dalmatian Islands along Croatia’s coastal line.


A beautiful historic town set within medieval walls, Trogir was listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997. The architecture is mostly from the time of Venetian rule and is some of the best preserved in Europe. There are many shops, bars and restaurants hidden in the cobbled, maze-like streets with several archaeological attractions to explore. During the summer there is often live music in the squares, which can be enjoyed from one of the many local cafes. What a delightful way to sit back, relax, and soak up the rich Mediterranean culture.

Hvar Island

Hvar Island offers travelers the best of both worlds—a vibrant nightlife with an impressive bar scene, and secret caves with stunning emerald- turquoise waters. The swimming at the blue and green coves is in a class of its own, plus the adrenaline-rush enthusiasts can partake in cliff jumping from the top of the caves. Incredible “photo opps” like this don’t come around very often so be sure to capture this exhilarating moment on camera.


Due to its location, Vis has remained relatively unspoiled by urbanization and tourism, making it an idyllic place to enjoy some peace and quiet paired with delectable locally-produced wines. Vis is also home to pristine and tranquil Stivina Bay, one of the best beaches you’ll ever encounter. 


The birthplace of Marco Polo and one of the most historic towns in Croatia, Korčula has long been a favorite Greek holiday spot. Over the years, this beautiful town became known as “Little Dubrovnik”, featuring a mini fortress enclosed within honey-colored stone walls and a wealth of architectural delights to discover in every street. Plus, Korčula is also dotted with several smaller villages and surrounded by lushly dense forests.


Skradin is a picturesque Dalmatian town with narrow cobbled streets and venetian architecture dating back to the 18th century. The gateway between the sea and the Krka National Park, Skradin lies at the river entrance to the park itself. As you make your way up the winding Krka river to Skradin be sure to stop at local mussel and oyster farms to pick up some fresh produce. A free ferry service takes visitors further into the Krka National Park to the breathtaking Krka waterfalls.

Go ahead—experience these hidden gems for yourself, because the only thing to regret about a Croatia yacht charter holiday is not going…
