About the route
Sailing in Dubrovnik – Your Dream Vacation
Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular tourist destination and one of the best couple destinations in the world. Dubrovnik is a medieval town whose historic core seems to have been stopped in time. The churches and public buildings mixed with the green-shuttered stone houses form a picturesque image that has remained untouched by the twenty-first century.
The best time to visit this magnificent sailing destination is during summer, but due to its massive medieval architecture, Dubrovnik offers a special mood during colder months too.
Day 1: Dubrovnik
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and get to the marina where your desired yacht is waiting for you. Your check-in procedure for hopping aboard the boat will be at 5 PM. Then, depending on the weather conditions and sunset hours, you may choose to spend the night in Dubrovnik or head to the Pelješac Peninsula.
Day 2: Dubrovnik – Pelješac
The Pelješac Peninsula was connected to the mainland of Croatia by the Pelješac Bridge in 2022. Pelješac is best known for oysters, mussels, and beautiful beaches Divna and Duba Pelješka, where you can spend the day swimming and sunbathing.
Day 3: Pelješac – Mljet
Explore the untouched beaches of Saplunara on Mljet and find your little slice of heaven here. Mljet Island is voted to be “the most seductive island in the Adriatic” by Lonely Planet. It is covered by a dense Mediterranean forest and crisscrossed with a maze of paths ideal for tranquil walking.
Day 4: Mljet National Park
Spend the day in an island national park with beautiful beaches, a thriving wildlife, ancient ruins, and hiking paths. Mljet National Park is a protected area with many endemic and endangered species, so be mindful of your footprint. Find more information about the park and ticket prices here.
Day 5: Mljet – Korčula
Sail to Korčula, an island that celebrates Half New Year with an open-air carnival where locals and tourists participate in the masked parade before dancing, eating, and drinking the night away. Korčula Island has magnificent sunsets that you can watch in secluded bays, such as Orlanduša, Vela Pržina, or Vaja. The island is widely known as the birthplace of Marco Polo and has exquisite cuisine, so make sure to visit one of the recommended restaurants.
Day 6: Korčula – Šipan
Šipan is the largest island of the Elaphite archipelago (in Greek: the Deer Islands), with quiet bays, beaches, green cypress groves, and summer residences of the noblemen and common citizens spread all over the grove-covered hills.
Day 7: Šipan – Dubrovnik
On the last day, we will stop at Šunj Beach on our way to Dubrovnik. Šunj is the most famous sandy beach in the Dubrovnik region.
Your Dubrovnik sailing route ends with a morning of swimming and eating Mediterranean breakfast. Wait for the check-out procedure that is scheduled for 9 AM with a cup of coffee. Make sure you take your belongings and new memories home with you. You may want to spend the day in Dubrovnik to cover everything listed on day one.
Make sure to come back and visit Dubrovnik once again! Or, if you would like to explore another part of Croatia, you can tailor your perfect vacation with us.
