Dubrovnik is the ideal base for exploring the southern end of Dalmatia, including MljetKorčula, Lastovo, and the Elaphite islands.

How to get to the area?

Dubrovnik airport handles 3.5 million passengers and had good international routes in Europe and beyond.  There are three shuttle flights per day to the capital, Zagreb, taking an hour.

Flight schedules do not necessarily coincide with yacht charters, which start on Saturdays, but this is a ‘must-see’ city. Tag some days either end of your sailing holiday and enjoy exploring Dubrovnik. When Saturday comes around you can make your way to the base marina of your chosen boat and meet up with your crew.

Where to go?

Dubrovnik is the gateway to islands around the Elaphite archipelagoMljetKorčula, and Lastovo. The National Parks of Mljet and Lastovo are idyllic, while Korčula provides culture in spades.
