Discover Dalmatia, a Sailing Paradise

There is no doubt that tourism on the Dalmatian coast, and Split is particular, is on the rise. This year's statistics have been impressive for the Dalmatian capital, and there has been much written about the number of fligths coming into Split, which was the busiest airport in the country in the summer, with more than 80 destinations served by 43 airlines.

But there has also been a large increase in tourism from the sea. 114 cruiseliners so far this year have brought an estimated 200,000 tourists, a number which is set to rise considerably next year. But there has also been a noticeable increase in another source of sea tourism - sailing.

With its plethora of islands and stunning coast, Dalmatia is becoming ever more attractive as a sailing destination, with the central islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis particularly popular. Split is becoming increasingly important as a sailing base, and there are now some excellent sailing packages and schools to suit all skill levels and time frames.

Check out the video below for a taster of the freedom of a sailing holiday, and experience the freedom of island-hopping sailing on the Adriatic next summer.
