Pelješac Peninsula

Pelješac Peninsula

The unparalleled Pelješac is located on Croatia’s southern coast and is the second-largest peninsula behind Istria. Halfway between Split and Dubrovnik, Pelješac narrowly runs from the town of Ston to the top of Cape Lovište and is 65 kilometers long (or 80 nautical miles). And thanks to a dynamic Mediterranean climate, it protects Croatia’s most precious liquid - wine.
Mljet - 'Green Island'

Mljet - 'Green Island'

Just 14.5 nautical miles and about 27 kilometers from Dubrovnik is the magical Mljet, the southernmost of the largest Adriatic islands which runs parallel to the eastern half of the Pelješac peninsula. Stretching an impressive 100 sqm, Mljet is honored as Croatia’s ‘green island’, and not without good reason - over two-thirds of the island is carpeted by dense forest, the northwestern half of which has been named a national park! But we will get more into that later.
Elaphiti Islands

Elaphiti Islands

Located west of the captivating walls of Dubrovnik, you’ll encounter the enchanting Elaphiti, a group of islands that decorate Dubrovnik’s coast. Owing its name to the Ancient Greek word for ‘deer’ (elaphos), this archipelago abounds in ragged reefs, sharp cliffs, and breathtaking seascapes with some of the Adriatic’s most stunning settings.

Cavtat - A pure bliss beneath the bustling Dubrovnik

When talking about Croatia’s southern coast, we are often limited to thinking about the Adriatic Pearl. But did you know the beauty of Dubrovnik extends even further and is found in a town just 20 kilometers south (and 5.5 nautical miles southeast)? Meet Cavtat, Croatia’s southernmost tourist resort and what many would consider pure bliss beneath the bustling Dubrovnik. Decorated by thick pine forest and scenic beaches, Cavtat is a hop, skip, and jump from Dubrovnik Airport (just 6 kilometers away), making it a foolproof destination to begin your sailing holiday.
LOPUD – “The middle island”

LOPUD – “The middle island”

Sailing into the port of Lopud, from afar, on your left, you can already see the Franciscan monastery peeking above the surrounding walls. As the boat comes closer the luxury resort Lafodia, on the right, looks more, and more imposing. As you throw the anchor or catch a spot in the small-town port there it is in front of you, the magical Lopud. Timeless, careless dalmatian heaven, with an amazing sunset. The Lopud waterfront is beautiful. It has the feel of a civilized Dalmatian fishing town, a place of culture and heritage and yet one of relaxation and informality. There is a song about Lopud that translated says something like this: “My friend, if you want to have heaven you should know, come with us and enjoy, Lopud is the place to go!” Maybe these lyrics promise a lot but allow us to justify just how wonderful this island is.
