Insider’s guide: 5 hidden gems in Croatia

Insider’s guide: 5 hidden gems in Croatia

Cavtat

Cavtat, Croatia

With medieval cities cloaked behind walls of stone, waters that shimmer turquoise and pink in the morning light, vineyards clinging to cliffs and a balmy summer temperature, it is no surprise that private cruises and luxury yacht charters in Croatia are so popular.

Captain Carl Sputh of superyacht Starfire reveals five of his favourite prettiest ports of call:

1. Cavtat

As soon as you glimpse Cavtat from the deck of your superyacht you know you are sailing into a living watercolour. It’s no wonder artists flock to watch the clouds streak silver and purple at sunset while enjoying a glass from local carafes of wine. Meander through the tantalising town admiring the rural friezes of local artist Bukovac before grabbing dinner at the classy Restaurant Leut with its delicate truffle pasta dishes.

Mljet

Mljet, Croatia

An island of old ancient forests, gaping cave mouths and the calmest turquoise waters begging to be explored by kayak, Mljet is a rare find on the heavily explored coast of Croatia.

Spend a few hours pushing through the belly of the woods following trails and disappear for a few moments into Odysseus’s Cave where, when the sunlight streams in and soaks up the water, you can see scores of silver fish beneath the surface. Mljet is worthy of its reputation as one of the best superyacht anchorages in Croaita.

Korcula

Korcula, Croatia

Korcula is a haven of perfect calm with quiet coves that seem to beckon you to plunge into the waters and swim away from your superyacht. Spend a day snorkelling around the bay, wandering the flushed vineyards and shady olive groves, and watching traditional sword fighting dances as you gorge on local charcuterie plates and nutty cheeses fresh from the mountains.
