Croatia is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts: tennis courts, sports centers, golf courses, yachts, motorcycles, bicycles, jet skis, diving equipment, cars, kayaks, horseback riding, hang gliding and much more! Croatia is a country ideal for a holiday on a yacht. In coastal waters, the influence of storm winds and waves, which so unpleasantly annoy the yachtsman on the high seas, is practically not felt. At night, the water is the same temperature as during the day – 21-24 degrees. Thanks to this, you can get indescribable pleasure from night swimming. In addition, yacht charter in the coastal waters of Croatia is one of the most affordable/democratic yachting options.
