Split is a buzzing tourist destination in the Dalmatia region of Croatia. Having been considered just a mere Launchpad for the islands and other destinations of Dalmatia for many years, the city has now grown into a buzzing tourist destination in itself for its incredible Roman and Greek heritage, its laid-back nature, as well as the allure of its sophisticated cobbled streets filled with a variety of fun activities.
However, to explore Split in its full beauties, there is nothing better than hopping on a boat and sail through its incredible coastline. Due to its overwhelming appeal as a sailing destination, you won’t necessarily have to have your own boat. You can just rent your preferred sailboat offered by Sailogy in Split, and go out on an adventure afar from its coastlines.
As Split is strategically located on a peninsula which provides greater access to the Adriatic islands, renting a sailboat would offer you with plenty of things to explore. Bacvice is the city’s main beach, while Trstenik is quieter and lies pleasantly within a large cove. Being on a boat, you can just anchor your boat in the pristine blue water, and witness the life passing by on and beyond its beaches in pin-drop silence.
The most easily accessible islands from the mainland Split are Brac, Hvar, and Vis. While the three islands are very closely located to one another and has a short ferry service in between, they offer the sailors with three distinctive characteristics to explore.
The closest island from the mainland is Brac. Looking from the boat, it may feel like an understated island, however, it is very diverse and has many surprises up her sleeves. There are a great number of cocktail bars, with some resort styled hotels spread around the Bol Town.
Hvar is the most favourite among the partygoers and VIPs. There is a plethora of luxury hotels and clubs frequented by some of the richest people around the world, with their collection of extravagant boats anchored in its harbour.
The farthest among the island trios is Vis. It was used as a military base until 1989, and therefore, were closed off to tourists. The island is still the remotest among the other islands in the Adriatic Sea, and thus, offers the most authentic experience.
Once you get tired of sailing, the laid-back urban vibe of Split with its prolonged coffee culture and a vibrant nightlife has enough things to reinvigorate your energy, in between the sailing extravaganza. The 4th-century Diocletian’s Palace is a sight to behold, with the citadel featuring in the popular Game of Thrones series. The Old Town Split, along with the natural forestry of the Marjan hill makes up the other popular destinations.
As you can see, all of these above mentioned destinations have a connection to the sea, and thus, are best enjoyed by renting a sailboat. If you have a sailing licence, you can take advantage of Sailogy’s sailboat rental without skipper. For travellers without a licence, we also offer boat with skipper. The skipper is not only an experienced boat navigator, he/ she would also be able to guide you about Split’s most attractive boating routes and hidden treasures.

A comprehensive service at a greatly reasonable price, having a once-in-a-lifetime sailing experience in Split have never been so easier. After all, what could be more relaxing than soaking up the sunshine on board of a comfortable sailboat from Sailogy!
