– When is the best time to rent a boat in Croatia ?

For sailing Croatia is ideal from late March to mid July and then from September to early November. July and August are very busy on the Adriatic, both on the coastal roads necessary to get to the marinas and on the Adriatic Sea itself. Weather-wise (or more appropriately wind-wise) late July and August aren’t the best choice. Just before and after that, however, you can count on just the right wind for good sailing. If sailing in the winter be sure that you are chartering a boat with a heating system as blankets will not be enough from November to March. Normally you can swim in the sea from mid May to late September.

For those not interested primarily in sailing, May to September is an ideal time to visit Croatia. July and September are probably the best since at that time you are unlikely to be surrounded by crowds of other visitors. The weather is beautiful, and warm enough to enjoy the coasts.

Check about Weather forecast.

– Sailing Holidays

The Croatian coastline is perfect for sailing holiday. With so many islands and ports, you can stop as many times as you like or sail for as long you wish. With over 1.000 islands, sail holidays can provide an excellent way of seeing some of the smaller (perhaps even uninhabited!) islands that would otherwise be difficult to visit with scheduled ferry lines. Such vacations can be considered to be more “hands-on” than your usual vacation, although everyone from beginners to more experienced sailors can find something suitable.
