Can't wait to dive into the action? Check The Yacht Week's three incredible Croatia routes - Original, Dubrovnik and Ultra.
1) Endless islands worth exploring
With over 1,000 islands, islets and crags dotted along the Adriatic coastline, Croatia provides the dream dose of escapism you're summer requires. Even if you stayed the entire season, you wouldn't be able to see them all. TYW is the perfect way to see the best islands on offer - such as Hvar, Bol, Vis, Sipan, Mljet and Korcula - all on one of the most beautiful boats you'll ever see.
2) Party all night, if that's what you like
While this holiday destination is packed with many charms by day, it's Croatia's nightlife that really puts it on the party map. Bursting with beach bars and hidden clubs, pumping out tunes from some of the best DJs in the world, Croatia pulsates with the beat of summer. TYW includes dancing at some amazing nightclubs, including entry to the legendary Carpe Diem on our Original route, the private island Coral Beach Club on our Dubrovnik route and the open-air club 585 on the Ultra route.
3) Revive your wellness
Croatia isn't just about partying. Those endless mornings of sunshine are the perfect setting for finding your balance, away from the demands of your everyday life. TYW's week-long adventures are designed to make sure you don't need another holiday after just to recover. Take everything at your own pace and find your perfect balance with a range of wellness activities. Take your pick from seaside yoga sessions, castle hikes and volleyball tournaments - or pull on your trainers and start every morning with the Run Club.
4) GoT to see them all
Calling all Game of Thrones fans! The TV show may be over but you can still visit Croatia's key filming locations on both our Original and Dubrovnik routes. Thankfully, these ancient palaces, monasteries and fortresses aren't going anywhere, so you can still geek out over these for years to come. BYO bell to ring and shout 'SHAME' every time you see your friends walking down a set of stairs.
5) Reconnect with your crew
There's nothing like sailing around Croatia for a week with your friends to make you remember why these people are your besties. It's an incredible way to make the most of summer together. Plus, on TYW you'll be surrounded by loads of other like-minded sun-seeking adventurers, so the opportunity to make new friends is endless.

Living the yacht dream and hopping between islands means one thing really - endless days of swimming, diving and exploring Croatia's underwater delights. The warm, sapphire waters of the Adriatic coast are irresistible, so make sure you pack a serious selection of swimwear for your holiday here. From exploring hidden coves and caves to high-speed donut rides and wakeboarding, TYW is all about immersing yourself in the big blue.
8) Unforgettable sunsets
Film director Alfred Hitchcock once described Croatian sunsets as the most beautiful in the world - and we really can't disagree. Every evening will have you swooning with the romance of it all, especially with TYW's candlelit dinner at Fort George on Vis Island (followed by Tropical Retro Party) on our Original route. It's the perfect start to a night to remember.
9) See it all by boat
Set sail around the Adriatic Coast on your very own yacht - with a professional skipper and chef, of course.

Hire a Vespa on Vis, a VW beetle convertible on Bol or a scooter on Korcula and you'll be rewarded with hidden beaches, charming vineyards and jaw-dropping views.
