We’ve all been there: stressed and annoyed, staring down the barrel of yet another long Winter. The days get shorter, and nights get colder; it’s enough to drive a person crazy! As everyone is becoming more aware, self-care is important. And sometimes self-care in the dead of winter takes the form of a party onboard a yacht, cruising along the coast of Croatia!
Surrounded by new friends, aboard a gorgeous yacht, you will be able to drink in the panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and absorb the rich Croatian culture all while living it up! From setting sail, to a final night on the water, here are 10 unforgettable experiences that can be yours with YachtLife.
1. Your full-service yacht with its very own crew!
Cheers, everyone! For your continued enjoyment, each yacht is complete with a fully stocked bar and bartender, so you’re never in danger of going thirsty! And to bolster the good times on board, each yacht is equipped with a DJ for late night dance parties, and chill tunes throughout the day!
2. Culinary delights by day and night – sampling delicious traditional Croatian dishes!
Seafood - If you like seafood, you are in for a treat! As our tour focuses on coastal Croatian cities, we will have the opportunity to dine on the freshest fish possible. Naturally full of flavour from being caught from the sea, traditional Croatian seafood is minimally seasoned to let the natural and fresh flavors take centre stage.
Cevapi - Not a huge fan of seafood? Then you’ll definitely want to get your hands on some Cevapi! These sausage-like meat patties are nestled into a pillow-y pita and piled high with cheese and homemade red pepper sauce! You won’t be able to get enough!
Local liquor? Finish dinner off by indulging in some of the local liquor! Rakija closely resembles Ouzo in that it is homemade with distilled grapes and it is definitely a treat best enjoyed sparingly.
3. Fine tune your palate with a wine tasting!
Move over France! Did you know Croatia is home to some 300 official wine regions? Red is commonly produced along the coastal regions of Croatia, creating a perfect opportunity to participate in a wine-tasting!
4. Blue Cave – see one of nature’s beautiful wonders
Some of the most wondrous places found on earth aren’t man-made. That is definitely the case with the Blue Cave found in Split.
5. Life’s a Beach!
When you travel with us, we want you to experience all that Croatia has to offer! That means, as much as we love our yacht, we hop off the boat and spend the afternoon at one of the many pristine beaches!
6. Enjoy one of our signature theme parties
What’s a yacht without any parties? Our on-board soirées come with a twist! We like to dress up! And to add in a little healthy competition, we may or may not vote on who has the best costume… Bring your A-Game!
7. The most Instagrammable location
You’ve seen them. The pictures, we mean. The ones of the crystalline blue water, the orange terracotta rooftops, and a winding labyrinth of streets. Welcome to Lumbarda. Perfectly Instagram worthy in every way.
8. Shop at the local market
Explore the local markets in Makarska. Find unique gifts and souvenirs to remind you of your time in Croatia (and let’s be honest, make your friends the teeniest tiniest bit jealous).
9. Rent a scooter to take in the city of Vis
A city steeped in military history with gorgeous beaches; this city is just as educational as it is beautiful. Tour around during the day and wrap things up with dinner and a glass of wine with a beautiful view of a golden sunset.
10. Dance the night away
Upgrade your trip with a quick but worthwhile stint at Ultra Croatia! Europe’s premier music festival is calling your name. Dance to the beats ‘til dawn and then hop on a flight home. Trust us, it’ll be worth it.
