The western coast of Istria is low and tame, with luscious vegetation and distinctive settlements. Rovinj, Poreč, Vrsar and Pula are its pearls. The coastline is indented, with many coves. There are large well equipped marinas.
The eastern coastline is the complete opposite except in the southern most areas. There are coves and bays all the way to Mošćenička draga, Lovran and Opatija, but the coastline is much steeper and less inhabited.
Charter bases operate from Pula.
Olives, indigenous aromatic plants, and brilliant white stone set against the verdant vegetation and the towering mountain massif of Biokovo with spurs which reach all the way to the sea.
In Central Dalmatia visit the famous islands of Hvar and Korcula or explore some of the lesser known islands of Lastovo and Vis, not as populated, quieter and full of history. Then take in the island of Mljet – mostly a national park and covered in pines to the waterline in the almost hidden bays.
Charter bases operate from Split, Kremik and Kastela.
Dubrovnik basks in a warm Mediterranean climate with groves of lemon, orange and tangerine trees, sumptuous palms and agaves, adorned by Renaissance parks and the flowering gardens of medieval stone palaces and unobtrusive monasteries.
Here too are bays, coves and beaches for the perfect yachting stops.
