Cruising Croatia In 2013

P1180918

The hot news is that Croatia is now a member of the EU and that should make the paperwork a little easier! Old news is the fact that Croatia continues to emerge as one of the best cruising grounds in the world – over 1,000 islands islets and reefs, a Mediterranean climate, charming locals, great food and drink, excellent facilities, fascinating history and a huge variety of architecture, culture and entertainment. There’s something for everyone, it’s relatively safe, at sea and onshore, and the cost of living won’t blow the budget. If you’re chartering it’s a buyers market though it is still best to avoid the very high season when all the continentals drive to northern Croatia and sail in fleets down to Dalmatia.

Below are links to some of our earlier postings that might help you enjoy cruising Croatia better:

And for an up to date guide to marina prices, have a look at the ACI website. State owned ACI run a chain of 21 marinas along the coast and on the islands, providing over 6,000 berths with a high standard of facilities. You’ll find information and prices for each marina. Prices vary according to length and season. There are web pages in English but you do need to know what the days of the week are in Croatian to understand that price list fully so here they are.

I’m pleased to say that I got the spelling right, before I double checked as it’s been a few months since I used them!
