The Adriatic Sea is dotted with beautiful islands, some of which are inhabited and others that have been left to nature. Taking a yacht charter is the best way to discover many of these isles, as you can explore at your leisure, mooring up where you please.
Kremik is an excellent base, as it will give you access to the Kornati archipelago to the north and islands such as Hvar, Brac and Korcula to the south.
If you are competent at handling a vessel, you can book a bareboat charter and head off to explore wherever you choose.
In the comfort of your yacht, you can visit a whole host of destinations, enjoying some of the best sailing Croatia has to offer along the way. Indeed, the ability to cast off and travel to a new port each day is one of the biggest attractions of this kind of break, as it enables you to see much more than you would if you were based on land.
One popular option is to sail around the islands to the south of Kremik, which include Hvar, Brac and Korcula.
Hvar is an excellent place to visit as part of your holiday sailing in the Mediterranean, as you will be able to make the most of the warm and sunny climate here, as well as viewing some important historical and cultural sites during your stay.
The capital of the island - Hvar Town - is one of the busiest tourist resorts on the Dalmatian coast, so you can expect to find plenty of wonderful restaurants, chic cafes and fashionable boutiques lining its streets.
With a history dating back centuries, there are also several landmarks you should see during your time here, such as the 15th-century Franciscan monastery that now includes a museum and Hvar Cathedral, which you will find in the city's biggest square.
After stopping off at Hvar, your next anchorage may be at Korcula, the largest island in the Dubrovnik region. You are bound to want to step ashore here and explore its main settlement, also called Korcula.
The city has an unusual layout - its streets are arranged in the shape of a fish bone - and are lined by beautiful gothic and renaissance buildings. The island is also famous for being the birthplace of Marco Polo, the legendary 13th-century explorer who travelled extensively in Asia before returning to Europe, where his tales were recorded and released in a book.
Brac is another destination you may want to include on the itinerary of your yacht charter holiday, with Milna an excellent place to moor up if you are looking for peaceful surroundings.
This charming town has a distinctly Mediterranean feel and you are sure to enjoy exploring its pretty, winding streets.
Of course, you may decide you would prefer to head to the north of Kremik on your break, enabling you to discover some of the delights of the Kornati archipelago.
Renowned for its natural beauty, the 89 isles in this group have been designated a national park, so you can look forward to some stunning scenery as you sail around.
One of the most impressive features is the so-called crowns on the isles, which are steep or vertical sea cliffs that plunge into the depths below. The tallest of these towers some 82 m above the water on Klobucar.
To learn more about the heritage of this archipelago, be sure to drop anchor at Kornat, where you can go ashore to discover the 16th century Turet fort and the Church of Our Lady Tarac, which was constructed on the site of an early Christian basilica.
If you are keen to explore some of the Adriatic Sea and Croatia's coastline but have not yet got a sailing qualification, don't worry.
Book a getaway to Kremik and you can learn to sail at the school here, giving you the opportunity to perfect your techniques in beautiful surroundings and still explore some of this stretch of coastline.
Meanwhile, those who have received training but are not confident enough to go it alone may find a flotilla holiday is the best option. This kind of break will see you join a group of boats, with one lead yacht crewed by an experienced team who will be on hand to assist you should you need any help.
