Croatia has lots of history to share some ancient coastal cities few stand out, as much as Dubrovnik. Known as “the Pearl of the Adriatic” Dubrovnic is considered by many to be one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities on Earth. Croatia in the Mediterranean offers ideal wether for those new to coastal sailing, with gentle winds and fair winds. You will spend many many pleasant hours on deck.
Dubrovnik’s historic castle fortifications being surrounded by picturesque white stone buildings are a delight. Terracotta roofs stand out against the rich azure blue of the Adriatic in the background. Mediterranean life has not changed in this place for thousands of years. A fascinating large town suffering damage during the wars is now restored to its former glory.

Climate & Weather in Croatia – Coast
The Croatian coast has a typically Mediterranean climate, hot, dry, sunny weather during summer, and mild – although it can sometimes be wet in the winter.
Average temperatures in summer should are expected in the mid-to-high 20s °C/77-86°F, although it is expected that you will experience temperatures well into the 30s °C/high 80s or low 90s °F.
Winters are considerably cooler, although temperatures never really drop below 5°C/41°F. Anything colder than this is considered as freak weather, though technically not impossible. In the last decade, there has been snow in parts of Dalmatia, such as Zadar and Split.
Mediterranean winters suffer regular storms (one to three per month on average) fortunately the weather varies a lot between countries. A good example of this variation exists in mainland Spain. The mainland of Spain is mild and sunny, while the Ionian Islands of Greece (not so far away) are wet and cold. The Mediterranean low season typically runs between October and April.
