Croatia has long been a favorite destination for the in-the-know European neighbors, and it has started hitting the radar in more distant parts of the world. Not only for visiting the historic and cultural attractions of fortified towns, Roman ruins, or museums, but also to bask in the sun along hundreds of miles of jagged coastline, and bathe in the pristine Adriatic waters.
Coastal cruisers offer a selection of voyages on their weekly departures from Opatija in the north, Split in the central part of Dalmatia, and Dubrovnik in the south, April through October. Sail, anchor, swim during the day, and pull into the little magical port with mountains running down to a fabulous seacoast, in plenty of time for exploration. Early morning departure and late afternoon arrival at next destination, including mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks for a swim, provide a balanced daily pattern of time at sea for relaxation, and ashore for sightseeing, dining and entertainment, so you get the best of both worlds.
"Cruise Croatia at a more leisurely pace. Stop at medieval walled towns, orange-roofed fishing villages, vineyards, and pebbly white beaches or savor the classic Med scenery at anchor," said National Geographic Traveler Magazine in its Tours of Lifetime list for 2011.
