8 of the best day activities to do while sailing Croatia
Experience the hottest place to sail by day and party by night on a Croatia coastline sailing trip! Spend your days exploring and sailing along the Adriatic, stopping in at UNESCO World Heritage-listed destinations (Mmmmm culture to go with that cocktail) in Dubrovnik and Split, small fishing villages like Milna and everyone’s favourite island, Hvar.
Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is the place to head. This narrow coastal region runs along the west of the country and is jam packed with UNESCO listed sights and attractions as well as pretty coastal towns and islands to explore. In the summertime this region swarms with pleasure-seekers keen to enjoy the relaxed vibe and beautiful sights of the Adriatic.
1.Walk along the Walls of Dubrovnik
Created in the 13th century the ancient Walls of Dubrovnik surrounds the southern Croatian city’s Old Town and has since featured in the Game of Thrones series. Take the 2km long walk and don’t forget water because some parts can be quite steep and you might just work up a sweat.
2.Bring the blow-up floaties along
So you can float along the Dalmatian coast with brewski in hand and sun shining down, get that tan happening.
3.Get up early and see Diocletian’s Palace
Split’s Diocletian’s Palace is a colossal Roman ruin that you can not miss when in Croatia. The original structure was built as a military fortress and has many winding streets. It can get packed though so make sure you get up early to see this magical site.
Once upon a time at 6am in Split --- Diocletian's Palace is in the heart of the Old Town in Split, and one of the main tourist spots of the city. It's beautiful but way too busy during the day, which is why we went there super early to beat the crowds! --- @alittleblondeinparadise + dress credit too (she knows I'm a bit useless and didn't have anything instagrammable so she brought me a spare dress, that's what friends are for ) . . . . . . #adventureawaits #wanderlusting #citizenfemme #theglobewanderer #womenwhoexplore #discoverearth #globelletravels #girlaroundworld #passportready #globetrotter #sheexplores #travelingourplanet #wheretonext #starttheadventure #travellust #travelingtheworld #travelinspiration #aroundtheworldpix #tagsta_travel #traveligram #explorationgram #destinationearth #places_wow #placestogo #amazingplaces #palace #croatiagram #split #croatiatravel #croatia
4.Swim Krka National Park’s waterfalls
Besides swimming in the sea, Croatia also has some incredible waterfalls that you’ll 100 percent want to get amongst.
5.Hike to the top of Hvar
For glorious views over the city…
6.Snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding
Most sailing boats will provide you with free to use snorkels, goggles and stand-up paddle boards.
7.Soak up the history at Pula Arena
This Roman amphitheatre is the only remaining one in the world to have four side towers and all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. It was constructed in 27 BC – 68 AD (insane) and is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the World.
8.Explore Plitvice Lakes National Park
Pick one of the 16 terraced and picturesque blue green lakes of Plitvice Lakes National Park and follow the winding wooden boardwalk or hiking trails that extends past waterfalls and a limestone canyon.
And here's a lil taster of what you're missing out on....
