Boston Globe Features Sailing in Central Dalmatia

With its pristine waters, plethora of emerald islands and endless sunshine, it is little wonder that Central Dalmatia is a perfect sailing destination, something that we have known for decades, but has only recently come to the attention of the international media.

The latest paper to feature the joys of a sailing holiday in Central Dalmatia is The Boston Globe, which has published an interesting account of a sailing holiday in the region, under the title Kicking Back on Croatia’s Dalmatia Coast, the article features Hvar, Split and Trogir:

SPLIT — From the deck of our boat we watched a spectacle that had everyone in this bustling port city spellbound: a river of sailboats streaming out from the harbor to a sparkling turquoise horizon. Though Croatia had just joined the European Union and marked its 22d year of independence, the talk of the town was of a smaller but perhaps equally telling milestone, the record turnout for the opening day of Yacht Week 2013.

Discover the Island of Solta: Great New Official Videos

The island of Solta is actually the closest to Split, but is often overlooked by tourists in favour of more ‘fashionable’ destinations such as Hvar, Brac and Vis. While this is a shame on the one hand (those tourists are missing out on one of Dalmatia’s most relaxed destinations), perhaps the lack of mass tourism is not a bad thing, as it keeps life on Solta at a very relaxed tempo.

But what is Solta like for those with an interest to visit? A couple of great new videos from the Solta tourist board should give us a clue.

We begin with Maslinica.

Adrenaline Dalmatia in January: Skydiving from Sinj

So what is there to do in Dalmatia in the winter if you want to be a little bit active? Plenty!
For the ultimate thrill, why not get airborne and take in the beauty of Central Dalmatia from a height of 4,000 metres, and then skydive to the ground?
Take a look at these pictures from Ante Grubišić Čabo from Sinj to see what is possible. The Sinj Aerodrome, just 30 minutes north of Split, is a great base for activity sports, and on this particular occasion, Ante and his colleagues jumped out of the plane into the clouds, before landing on Stari Grad airfield on Hvar some four kilometres below.
