You will find the best sailing weather for a boat holiday in Zadar during the peak season of May to September. August especially is good for swimming when the waters get up to 25°C and there 13 hours of daylight!
However, we recommend you to hire a yacht in Zadar during the “shoulder months.” The shoulder months are named so because they come before and after the peak summer season. You can rent a boat in Zadar either between April and June in late spring or between September and October in early fall to take advantage of these times. During the shoulder months, the sea is calmer, the weather is consistent, and the best part is the crowds are smaller letting you get the most out of your boat holiday in Croatia.
Here is our list of recommended marinas in Zadar. You will discover unrivaled beauty on the Adriatic Coast when you decide to charter a yacht in Croatia:
Zadar is a truly intriguing city and is often referred to as the best-kept secret in Croatia. The old town has a lot of great character with the Roman ruins, medieval churches, street cafes, and high-quality museums. Not only is there a lot to do on a sailing holiday in Zadar, but the city itself also offers a lot to see and do. Some must-see things include:
⚓ Sea Organ: this architectural sound art installation located on the coast of Zadar is a must-see. By placing tubes underneath a set of large marble steps, the Sea Organ plays music by using the sea waves. It’s quite a sight to see… and hear.
⚓ Sun Salutation: this wacky and wonderful outdoor installation was created by Nikola Bašić, the same architect who designed the Sea Organ. The 22m-wide circle is made up of 300 multi-layered glass plates that collect the sun’s energy during the day. Set next to the sea, it’s a spectacular thing to witness during the sunset.
