Breath-taking islands & Adriatic beach clubs

Due to low-cost flights to Split, Dubrovnik and Zadar, it is easy to reach the Adriatic. However, if you stop at the festivals, you’re bound to miss out. The festivals don’t give you all that you can get from party Croatia. Therefore, if you want a little more than just a hangover residue in a mist of mixed memories, we strongly encourage you to explore the islands. The island clubs and beach bars attract crème de la crème crowd of niche party lovers and you’ll get to party in even more scenic and historical venues. Clubs such as Hula Hula and CarpeDiem on Hvar, Fort George on Vis, Papaya on Zrce Beach or Revelin in Dubrovnik boldly defend the club party life in the Adriatic.  Just remember, once in Hvar, do it like a royal! 

Finally, try giving the genuine treasures of the Adriatic a chance; its well-preserved historical ruins and a spirit of ancient times that ooze from the old city walls will impress you in ways you didn’t think is possible.

Beaches, crystal blue seas and starry skies 

You may come for the beats, but you’ll stay for the beaches. Beach life in Croatia is strong, and you should seize all its lovely opportunities and party like a thrill-seeker that you are while you still can!

Most beaches in Croatia have pebbles and large stones, and there are some sand beaches. The sea quality is well-praised and highly clean, especially on the remote islands. Last but not least, haven’t you heard? As a result, the blue waters of the Adriatic sea cure hangovers fast. All you need to do is dive in and the sea cures it all – even the most stubborn of headaches. Do you see now why beaches are an essential component of your party fueled Croatian holiday? Beach life and party life go hand in hand.

Flotilla holidays

There’s something extremely alluring in the yacht week concept. A week to travel around some of the most striking places in the world, all the while spending time with your old and new friends, and turn up to wild parties, dance under the stars and swim at astonishing locations. 

Whether you opt for a charter or an agency – is up to you, but be aware that charter sailing requires a bit more experience on your part. Even if you have a sailing license, a sailing charter doesn’t give you an exclusive access to the parties and really cool spots that are excellently frequented during the yacht week Croatia. In conclusion, the flotilla holidays allow you to discover stunning scenery of Brač, Hvar and Vis Islands from the optimal view: a sailing boat. How does a million dollars feel? Try Yacht Week Croatia for starters.
