The number of top quality – not to mention FUN – events means that Croatia is proving to be the festival destination in mainland Europe. There’s also something for everyone, whether you want a pop & rock event; a huge stadium festival with big name DJs; EDM; a boutique and laid-back festival by the sea; partying day and night in some of the best clubs in Europe…the list goes on! Festivals in Croatia get many repeat visitors year after year – but if you’ve never been to an event, why not give it a go in 2017?
Daily boat parties on board the Argonaughty and The Martina set off to the collection of islands comprising the Sibenik archipelago. With DJ decks set up on the bow, you can even get up close and personal with some of the festival’s biggest names. The music events are far removed from the British tradition of flooded tents, wellington boots and mud-caked clothes. The red-roofed town of Tisno, just a short drive from the waterfalls of Krka National Park, is reliably warm, with terraced apartments available to rent behind the festival venue. The festivals let their tunes loose from mid-afternoon well into the night.
Midnight marks the start of Barbarella’s night-long party; arguably Croatia’s most famous nightclub. The unique venue is best reached by speed boat, a journey that allows spectacular views of the perfectly clear sky. Being an entirely outdoor club these stars provide the backdrop to many parties, with the likes of Gard Janson, Dixon and Dan Wild providing the soundtrack. When the sun does appear, Vortex greets the day with its relaxing beach vibes; expect to see early birds sprawled across cabanas or paddling in the sea.
Embracing quieter spots in seaside Tisno provides a more enjoyable daytime option. Flower-flanked restaurants serve everything from fresh fish to pizza, boats are available to rent and the lively beach bar, a popular haunt for returning dance aficionados, make the small town a perfect daytime getaway. Crewed yacht charter offers the ultimate holiday experience in Croatia. When you charter a yacht and hire a professional skipper to sail it for you with a hostess to take care of the cleanliness and eating/drinking on board, such a charter is termed as a crewed yacht charter. It delivers the ultimate holiday experience on the water since there will be nothing for you to do but enjoy at your own pace, on your own schedule. Be it swimming, sunbathing, snorkelling, fishing, sightseeing, eating, drinking …. the list goes on as per your preferred holiday activities! Costs for a crewed yacht charter range from 3.300€ – 7.200€. The cost consists of the boat price and the crew’s fees, while for the mooring fees, fuel and food you pay on the way as much as you spend.
