Trogir is a city on the coast of central Dalmatia. Its central location is ideal for cruises to the fascinating island world off the coast of Croatia. The country has over 300 islets. Due to the good local conditions a yacht charter from Trogir is also suitable for families. Worth seeing is the medieval old town, which lies on an island and is still largely intact. In the surroundings there are several beautiful beaches.
Split airport is located in the east, just outside the city. It can be reached from numerous airports in the German-speaking area. Bus line 37 goes directly to Trogir, and cabs and cab boats are also available. An alternative is to arrive by car. The A1 highway from Zagreb to Dubrovnik is the fastest connection. The marinas can be reached from the exit Vrpolje or Prgomet. Scenically more beautiful, but very time consuming is the Adriatic Highway, which starts in Rijeka and we can only recommend it for a yacht charter in Trogir.
The marinas for a yacht charter in Trogir
On the north coast, opposite the Kamerlengo Fortress, lies the modern ACI Marina, which was opened only in 2014. It is an ideal place to discover the Split region by yacht charter. From here, the old town and beaches can be reached on foot. Parking is available, but in the summer here is a high volume of traffic to be expected.
Baotic Marina is located on the mainland coast, west of Trogir. In addition to the marina, the district of Seget Donji offers beautiful beaches that fall shallowly into the sea. For larger errands, there is a cab boat connection to the nearby old town. A restaurant, a small store, a boat refueling station and other important services exist on the premises. Renting a catamaran and making Trogir the starting point for a cruise in Croatia's island world will be a pleasant experience.
The area around Trogir - climate
A mild climate and a beautiful island world are the main reasons to rent a sailboat in Trogir. Besides the islands of Solta, Brač and Hvar, Vis is also worth a visit. Especially for the Blue Grotto on the neighboring island Biševo a yacht charter in Trogir is worthwhile. Depending on the time available, a catamaran can be chartered and Trogir can be left for southwest or east. Dubrovnik or the Kornati islands are just two of the more interesting destinations for a longer cruise.
In central Dalmatia, the maestral prevails in summer, blowing with increasing intensity during the day, before diminishing again from about 2 pm. The fair weather wind comes from the sea from the northwest and offers the best conditions to get to know the Split region by yacht charter. Two other winds occur only sporadically. The bora, which blows as a downdraft from the northeast, can be quite treacherous. The stormy Jugo (Schirokko) has a lot of rain in its luggage and comes from the southeast. It announces itself about 36 hours before the peak. So you can seek shelter in time when you rent a sailboat in Trogir.
Yacht charter in Trogir & discover the Split region
Off the coast, five islands in particular are worth visiting for sailing yacht charter in Trogir. Šolta is the first island you will reach when you rent a yacht from Trogir. In the bay of Necujam there is a lot going on in summer. In a side bay it is worth to snorkel at a sunken ship. From the more eastern bay Gornja Krušica, a climb up the hill Vela Straža is worthwhile. Brač is the third largest island and is home to the highest peak in the Adriatic, Vidova Gora. On a yacht charter from Trogir, it is worth navigating to the south side and heading for Bol. To the west of the town there is a magnificent sandy beach, the "Golden Horn", which extends into the sea as a headland.
Hvar is located south of the island of Brač. It is worthwhile, if you charter a sailing yacht in Trogir, to target the west side. Popular is the bay of Stari Grad, which has a beautiful medieval old town. At the end of the harbor, a large grocery store and bakery provide fresh provisions. To the southwest lies the island of Vis. It is the furthest from the coast of the large islands if you rent a yacht in Trogir. The bays are characterized by idyllic tranquility. However, the most important sight is on the neighboring island of Biševo. Here, the Blue Grotto is a hotspot. A lot of time must be planned for the visit, especially during the summer vacations.
