Starting with “The most beautiful sunset in the world”, as Alfred Hitchcock described his experience during his stay in the town of Zadar, you sail out north by north-west on an epic cruise among the numerous islands along the coast of Dalmatia to discover the pristine natural beauty which can hardly be found anywhere else in the world. You can read more about Croatia’s islands in a blog post.
Just drop your paddleboard off the boat and you are set to go – to take an easy paddle to the hidden blue lagoon and your private bay … or to challenge yourself with an open-sea crossing between the islands. As you like it, everything is possible with the full comfort of the sailboat always at hand including your private cook awaiting you with canapés and margaritas on the deck when you return.
About a hundred-mile sailing route takes you a thousand years back in time as you visit the islands’ stone-built villages and fall under the spell of the laid back Dalmatian atmosphere. Your 8 days out of this world!
