Island hopping along the Croatian coast from Trogir with luxury yacht Kairos.
Your luxury sailing holiday begins in the Croatian city of Trogir. Known for its mix of Renaissance, baroque and Romanesque buildings, the old part of this medieval city lies on a small island connected to the mainland and the island of Čiovo by historic bridges.
A lot of the original medieval town and city wall remains intact, providing a beautiful backdrop for boarding Kairos. From Trogir, you will sail and visit secluded bays, traditional coastal towns, national parks and spectacular waterfalls before finishing in the harbour of Cavtat – perfect for exploring the city of Dubrovnik.

Your Sailing Area
Offering a quieter but equally as beautiful side to the Mediterranean that so far seems little touched by the booming tourist trade, exploring the coast and islands of Croatia is certainly best done by boat. From ancient harbour cities shrouded in impressively thick old town walls, to spectacular bays for remote anchorages in crystal clears waters and fair winds, sailing in Croatia has something for everyone. With easy access from UK airports, you can fly from London and be relaxing on board in as little as 4 hours. This sailing adventure on Kairos is perfect for those looking for a little escapism, relaxation and new experiences, stunning landscapes and 5* service onboard!
As with all sailing holidays, the itinerary is not set until closer to the time but be assured that this cruise will see you exploring the magnificent coastline of the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian coastal towns and islands of Makarska, Hvar, Korcula, Vis and Brac.
The Croatian Islands
Vis is the furthest island from the coast and by far the most enigmatic and bohemian. Sleepy villages, traditional Croatian architecture and secluded bays make this island a great “get-away”. Wander the ancient city walls, snorkel in the hidden bays and explore its fascinating sea caves.
Hvar is one of the Croatian islands most luxurious beach destinations. The island is famous for its abandoned ancient hamlets, craggy peaks, vineyards and glorious lavender fields.
Mljet is a National Park and is one of Croatia’s greenest islands and home to crystal clear waters, beautiful shorelines and sandy beaches. The waters around Mjlet are at a higher temperature than the sea and are full of marine life so plenty of exploring, swimming and snorkelling opportunities. Stroll around the two famous saltwater lakes or even visit the legendary Odysseus Cave.
Korcula is the largest of the three islands you will visit and has, of course, with all these beautiful islands, plenty of places to explore, swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters along stretches of sandy beaches. Korcula is known as ‘little-Dubrovnik’ and will take your breath away with its magnificent medieval architecture and fortresses. With romantic cobbled streets and cafes and bars serving the best white Croatian wines, this is the perfect place to unwind and watch the world go by.
Your final stop before sailing toward Cavtat will be the must-see city of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is now a Unesco world heritage site and one of the world’s most magnificent walled cities. During the 16th century, it had one of the largest merchant naval fleets in the world but today, visitors come here for leisure. The main draw is the charming pedestrian-only old town, packed with history and elegant Baroque churches, contained within the breathtaking medieval fortifications.
