With its stunning coastline and crystal clear azure waters, Croatia is one of the most popular destinations on the superyacht circuit. Here some seasoned yachting professionals share their favourite places to drop anchor.
1. Lovisce Inlet, Scedro Island
Lovisce Inlet on the north side of Scedro Island is one of Croatia's most delightful anchorages: totally safe, and set among delightful maquis-covered hills, it lies on the direct route between the must-see cities of Hvar and Korcula.
Apart from a swim, exploring the lagoon with a dinghy or kayak, or a walk amid the lavender and thyme that clad the low hills, there isn't much to do — but that is the whole joy of Scedro.
Hvar and Korcula, 12 and 20 nautical miles distant, provide the architecture, historic interest and marginally more refined dining that may be part of your ideal holiday. You might consider a stop at the little lighthouse-dominated islet of Plocica, especially if you have children aboard, as they will delight in exploring the rock pools at low tide.
