Sailing, an essence imbued in the soul of Dubrovnik, remains an indispensable part of any visit to the city. Set sail from the southernmost tip of Dalmatia, where a plethora of extraordinary island adventures awaits just off the coast. Closest to the shoreline, the Elaphiti Islands, with their humble population of under a thousand, captivate global audiences with tranquil, exclusive beaches and lavish super-yacht laden bays, scattered across the thirteen-island archipelago. Contrarily, the Pelješac Peninsula might deceive with its island-like visage, but it's an intriguing sliver of land stretching 65 kilometres into the Adriatic. It navigates from the renowned oyster and seafood haven of Ston through Croatia's prime winemaking territory. Venturing further out, the verdant spectacle of Mljet Island unfurls, offering a rich tapestry of lush forests and coastal wonders - pristine beaches, awe-inspiring caves, and secluded bays. A considerable part of this Eden, one-third of the entire island, is safeguarded as a National Park. Embarking on a boat trip is an intrinsic part of your luxury villa holiday, a passage to unique island vistas and the fabled, fortified city of Dubrovnik, just as travellers have admired for centuries - from the deck, with the sea's gentle sway.
