7 Reasons a Sailing Holiday in Croatia is the Perfect Family Holiday
Are you trying to plan your next family holiday? Have you ever thought about a sailing family
holiday? At World Yachting Charter, we are a family-oriented sailing holiday specialist in Croatia,
passionate about creating the perfect family holiday for you. There are so many reasons a sailing
holiday in Croatia is the perfect family holiday, here are just a few.
Stress-Free Booking and Planning Process
Let us take care of the planning and details so you can enjoy your family holiday. Our experienced
team will guide you to the perfect yacht choice, explain the benefits of a crewed versus bareboat
charter, and all other information you need to know. Once you book, we can also take care of the
rest of the details – like route planning and making suggestions or booking restaurants and activities
along the way. We organize transport to collect you from the airport, and can even arrange
provisioning – so your yacht is fully stocked and ready to go. Booking a family sailing holiday with
World Yachting Charter eliminates the stress around booking and planning a family holiday.
Numerous Islands and Calm Seas
Croatia has more than 1,000 islands, and, whether sailing a southern, central or northern route, all
of the islands are close together – making Croatia a sailor’s paradise. The Adriatic Sea is typically
calm and because the majority of the islands are close to the mainland, you are sailing in channels
protected from the open sea. This is one of the main reasons it is a perfect sailing destination for
families. Unlike destinations like Greece, you do not need to sail long distances (in the open sea) to
reach different islands. You can easily be on a new island or in a new destination every day,
averaging 2 – 4 hours sailing per day. And every town you come across has a small market,
restaurant, ATMs and the likes.
Croatia is Safe and Everyone Speaks English
When considering a destination for a family holiday, we know that safety is of utmost importance.
So, we think it is worth mentioning that Croatia is considered one of the safest countries in the
world. According to the Global Peace Index, Croatia is the 27 th safest country in the world (out of 163
countries). Crimes, in general, are very low in Croatia. Also worth mentioning – as a country reliant
on tourism, almost everyone in Croatia speaks English. These two factors make Croatia an ideal
destination to travel and for families.
Quality Family Time
If you have never been on a yacht or sailing holiday before, maybe the idea of being on a small yacht
with your family doesn’t sound like much of a holiday. Let us explain why a yacht is a perfect
environment for quality family time together. There is something magic that happens when families
take to the sea – a sailing holiday allows families to disconnect from the world and reconnect with
each other. Days spent sailing, swimming, sunning and explore new destinations, create lasting
memories. Though yachts seem small, there are plenty of spaces for everyone to enjoy. Children
spend their days swimming, snorkeling – add a SUP to your yacht charter for more entertainment
and family fun. Evenings are spent enjoying dinner on the deck or out in a cute local konoba (tavern),
and playing games together. Every family that sails with us, tells us how it was one of their best
family holidays ever.
A great aspect of a sailing family holiday is that you are in control of your holiday experience. If you
are on more of a budget, there are many ways to reduce costs at sea. First – there is little need to
pay for extra activities to entertain your kids, sailing and the Adriatic provide the best natural and
free entertainment. If you don’t want to spend nights in marinas, you can spend your 7-day charter
anchored in gorgeous bays. You can eat all of your meals aboard or dine out occasionally. Pro tip:
dining out for lunch is cheaper than dinner. The more you hoist the sails, the more money you save
on fuel. Compared to staying in a hotel, where you still need to pay for transport, food and
entertainment, a yacht provides it all. We have many more tips, and at World Yachting Charter, we
are transparent with all costs and will happily help you budget for your family sailing holiday.
Book a Crewed Yacht Charter for the Ultimate Holiday Experience
If you want an even more relaxing holiday, consider booking a crewed yacht charter. With a skipper
and/or hostess aboard, you can completely relax. Let the crew take care of all responsibilities so you
can focus on enjoying quality time with your family. A skipper will take care of the safety, route
planning and yacht maintenance. While a hostess/cook will handle the provisioning, take care of
daily cleaning, and cook gorgeous meals for you. A crewed yacht charter is the ultimate holiday
experience. And, we train all of our crew personally, so we trust them to deliver the highest level of
Active, Relaxing or a Social Holiday – You Decide
The beauty of a sailing holiday is that you get to decide what kind of holiday it is. If you want to
relax, you are in control – spend days in secluded bays and finish that book. If you want to be more
active, swim, snorkel, kayak or we can even organize other activities ashore like biking or hiking. If
you are interested in history and exploration, Croatia is full of ancient towns and thousands of years
of history. If you want a more social family holiday, consider a family flotilla sailing holiday.
Whatever your perfect family holiday looks like to you, we can help make it a reality.
