Sailing in SOUTHERN CROATIA
Southern Croatia is really a case of starting from somewhere round Split and Trogir and heading south to Dubrovnik via the islands of
These are islands and towns of wondrous beauty and the only part of Croatia in which we have sailed. As a general rule, the Slavic people are less extrovert than the Latins of the rest of the Mediterranean basin - you feel less welcome. Private owners are not that common - the charter industry on the other hand is huge. It has to be said too that the food is on average less good than in the Latin countries. Mraina prices are also very very high - way out of our reach for instance.
A one-way from Split to Dubrovnik - preferably of 2 weeks is however one of the greatest sailing experiences Europe has to offer, and that despite the impenetrable tourist hordes in Dubrovnik arriving in 4000 passenger cruise ships. that are hard to avoid. Despite that, it is probably the most beautiful city that I know.
