WHY VISIT CROATIA? Just few reasons….

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sometime ago, the web site called THE ELITE DAILY, known also under the nick „voice of generation Y“, published an article naming some reasons why Croatia is a new ‘hotspot’ destination for young travellers. And here are their reasons WHY CROATIA?

In the introduction, they say all the tourism experts say how Croatia has increasing number of young passengers. One of the main reasons is TV SHOW – Game of Thrones filmed in Dubrovnik. In Dubrovnik, one of the best destinations in the world, you can feel like being in a fantasy, they say.

The other reason is prefect, just perfect Mediterranean climate or some of the sunniest islands in Mediterranean (Hvar Island), clean fresh water and turquoise Adriatic sea.

Third reason is closely connected to Ultra Music Festival in Split – Croatia is often titled as new Ibiza or new music Mecca that slowly but surely becomes a top destination for all music lovers and DJ fans.

Exciting sailing and cruising, amazing private boat excursions, more than 2100 islands and islets and the nautical offer accessible to general population and not reserved only for rich and famous – are also the reasons why you MUST come to Croatia for holidays.

Reason number 5 – for the same amount of money you simply get more than you would in other destinations. For example, young travellers can enjoy in tasty meals for just 10 to 15 USD and have a beer for just 3 USD – a lot less than in other destinations.

Despite all expectations, culture is big motive and sixths reason young travellers mentions when talking about Croatia. Cities older tha 1700 years, founded by Roman Emperors, Coliseums and Amphitheatres, Museums, UNESCO heritage sites…..do we really need to continue?

Natural beauties are also one factor contributing to Croatia’s popularity among youngsters- 9 National Parks, numerous Nature’s Parks, protected areas, Islands…. all of this should make you understand why it is also famous among world celebrities like Tom Cruise, British Prince Harry, Beyoncé and many others…

Food and Vine – a special chapter! Top Croatian vines and amazingly fresh, GMO free food  puts Croatia into direct and open rivalry with France and Italy. Food and vine in Croatia are guarantees you will remember your time here for a loooong time.

The last reason is rich and extremely complicated history of this country and its surrounding areas. You as a guest will probably be surprised and confused with historic Who? Why? When? and How? But ….have no fear, since 80% of locals don’t understand the whole historic picture – no one will expect from you to understand it. Just come and spend the time of your life!

Stiniva Beach private boat excursions

VISITING THE BEST BEACH IN EUROPE – BOOK A PRIVATE BOAT EXCURSION

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Internet portal dedicated to European best destinations proclaimed one of Croatian / Dalmatia beaches MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH in Europe. No need to say, we knew it already, even before it got recognised and we included it in our private boat excursions itinerary. We present – STINIVA BEACH on VIS Island.

Croatia has very developed coast line, one of the most developed in the world and more than 2100 islands and islets. Thanks to that fact, Croatia and particularly its southern region Dalmatia has enormous growth in nautical tourism that doesn’t seem to stop. When we say nautical tourism we think of classical yacht charter, sailboat charter and other boating services like private boat excursions and private boat transfers with speed boats. Don’t hesitate – explore STINIVA BEACH!

Having so developed coastline it means Croatia offers so many bays, coves and beaches to explore and, according to the BUZZ FEED, it seems it has the nicest beach in Europe – magnificent STINIVA BEACH. It is located western of Mala Travna bay or as the locals call it “Mola Trovna”. If you look at it from the seaside the entrance to this beach is guarder or closed by two big cliffs creating passage just 4 meters wide. Between those guardians you will see a glimpse of pebble beach but not until you really “enter” the area – you get to feel like in ancient Roman amphitheatre. Booking a private boat excursion and exploring this wonder of nature seems like the smartest idea, especially if you know how steep and unpleasant the approach from the mainland is. Surrounded by high cliffs means the half of the beach is in shade always and you don’t have to worry about hot summer sun.

If you go by car and want to reach it from mainland, you should go to the village Žužec and then you need to take a walkway that can take more than 20 minutes.

Our advice is clear and simple: want to visit Stiniva Beach – book a boat trip and save time and nerves!

Summer in Croatia: What you need to know

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As said many times before, the goal of Dalmatia Boat Transfers travel agency is dual: to provide excellent boating services to our guests and also to inform about all important things when arriving in Croatia – whether you choose to book our services or not. So – don’t hesitate to ask us all you need to know.

Our inbox is full of “Thank you” messages from you and we find it rather strange. It is really not needed as we said this so many times and we will repeat it again and again: feel free to ask us all you need to know about your trip to Croatia – even if not remotely connected to our core business. We will do our best to make sure you arrive here fully informed so that you can avoid silly situations and unpleasant surprises. Of course, we would like you to book some of our private boat excursions or boat transfers or any other boating service but above all – we are interested to make your stay here memorable! All members of our team are led by one vision: treat all the guests and visitors like you would like to be treated when arriving in foreign country. Simple, isn’t it?! That is why we want to talk about some things we think are necessary for you to know when arriving in Dalmatia.

Aplit Airport transfers private boat excursions

Split Airport

Split airport – what to expect?

Split airport is international airport located just 25 kilometres from Split city centre. Make sure you remember to open your windows shade when your plane start to descend to landing altitude as you will miss truly spectacular scenery created by numerous Croatian Islands scattered all over the Adriatic sea. Most probably, your plane’s landing route will pass just over Trogir town, an impressive medieval town located on tiny island between mainland and Čiovo Island. Since 1997, Trogir town is listed as one of many UNESCO sites in Dalmatia and is definitely worth visiting and that is why you will find it among our list of private boat excursions.

Split airport is of course, the busiest airport in this region so although it has just one takeoff and landing runway in the peak of the season you can see something like 120 planes per day landing there. So, especially on Saturdays, it can get a bit overcrowded. But have no fear – it is small and well organised airport so all the procedures are fast and almost without waiting. Once you landed in Split you need to reach your destination – in Split city or somewhere on Dalmatian Islands. You have several options:

  1. Taking a taxi from a taxi station located in front of the airport building – this is something we honestly do not recommend. Why? Because like with any other taxi service you do not know what would be the price of your transfers. In summer times, thanks to traffic jams, the final cost can vary up to +15 or even +20 €ur.
  2. Booking a private car or minivan transfer – well, this is much better option. The service should look like this: you book the service – the driver waits for you at the airport with a signboard and your name on it – he transfers you to your destination. Great thing with this service is that you know what kind of car is coming to pick you up and what would be the final cost to your service. Definitely recommended!
  3. Of course, we saved the best for the end: private boat transfers – Split airport is located practically on the waterfront. Or, to be more precise, if you choose to book boat transfer you will have to walk from the airport building to the pier located just 800 meters from the airport. Of course, if you don’t want to walk those 800 meters, someone can pick you up at the airport and in 30 seconds – you are ready to embark the boat. Skipper and boat will be ready to take you and transfer you to your destination. With this kind of service you avoid all traffic jams and waiting in ferry ports and above all – you avoid spending your holiday time with grumpy and inpatient people. So if we recommended private car transfer service – we don’t need to say what we think about this kind of service 🙂

If you are hitting Split city with car transfer (taxi or private service) you should know that regular price shouldn’t be more than 290 Kuna per one way for private car. According to today’s exchange rate that would be aprox. 38€ or 30GBP or 43 USD. Just for your orientation.

Split ferry or Private boat excursions

Split ferry port is the biggest passenger port on this, Eastern side of Adriatic Sea and, as we wrote is some previous articles, Split used to be the biggest transit centre. Things changed in last 15 years and today, Split is not only the biggest transit hub but also the biggest and most important tourist destination. Since the only ferry company in Croatia is still government owned (there are few smaller companies covering less interesting lines), you can’t really rely on them 100% in a sense of professionalism and courtesy towards guests. Ok, it would be unfair to say they do not try but according to our standards – it is just not enough. But hey, if you are travelling on a budget – Jadrolinija is the right choice.

Why we think private boat transfer is a better option – instead of standing in line to buy a ticket for Jadrolinija ferry you can be welcomed by our skipper and clean boat: instead of running around on owercrowded ferry looking for aplace to sit – you can relax on the boat you rented choosing where you want to sit: while you need to stand in line and wait to buy Cola or coffe in ferry restaurant – on your private boat you can choose what to drink – water, soft drinks…: while waiting 2 hours to reach Starigrad on Hvar island and then transfer to HVar town – you can get directly in Hvar town in just one hour of relaxing cruise…… We could go on like this for hours…. Definitely – it is up to you to choose how to spend every moment during your holiday in Dalmatia.

Beaches in Croatia – what to expect?

We get a lot of these: “We want to go on a really nice, secluded and not overcrowded beach. Sandy beach. Where do we go and how do we reach it by car?” First of all, you have to know sandy beaches in Croatia and Dalmatia are really rare. We mean – REALLY rare! Not really sure, but we think some 98% of all beaches in Croatia are pebble beaches, soft and gentle pebble beaches. There are sandy beaches like Bačvice Beach and Firule Beach in Split but we can’t say they are secluded with not to many people. They are the most popular city beaches so….you know the rest. BUT, on the islands, there are quite a few beaches with interesting setup: dry part is made of soft pebbles and as soon as you step into the sea you will notice sand bottom. First beaches crossing our mind are: Potoline Beach and Borak Beach in Bol on Brač Island, Stončica Bay on Vis Island, Grebišće on Hvar island…. Of course, all those beaches are reachable by car but if you are accommodated in Split and want to visit them think twice as you will spend the majority of the day travelling to and from them! So, private boat excursions – thing for you to think about.

In our next article, we will try to write you something about resturants, tipping and other things to know when coming to Split – Dalmatia.

Remember the words from the beginning of this text: feel free to ask us all you need to know about your trip to Croatia. We will gladly help with advice, tip or suggestion whether you choose to book some of our private boat services or not!

Looking forward to meet you this summer!

That is the reason why this year organising team expects more than 150.000 visitors from 141 countries coming th Dalmatia. Also, they expect the average stay of 7 days.

Ultra Europe Split: After Movie

Ultra Europe official after movie has been watched more than million times in just two months after it has been released. Its importance in promotions Split and Dalmatia as tourist destinations is even bigger because more than half of the video has been dedicated to natural beauties of this Dalmatian region.

Negotiations with the Owner of Ultra World Wide organisation – SUCCESFULL

Director of Ultra Europe Festival just returned from Miami where he had meetings with the owners of Ultra World Wide organisation, told to media:

“One of the partners of Ultra World Wide organisation is Ultra Europe Festival, mainly owned by Croats. That is the main reason why Ultra Europe’s home is in Split, the capital of Croatian coast. Each year is harder and harder for us to keep Ultra in Dalmatia because its growth attracts more and more offers from other tourist countries and cities in Europe. For now, we can say for sure Ultra Europe stays in Split, Croatia and that makes us extremely proud. I have to say and everyone interested knows about it – just in last two years we got three serious offers to move the festival from Croatia. Despite that, we are convinced that we will stay here and improve even more cooperation with Split city officials and Split tourist board”

Director of communications said: “This year we expect more than 150.000 visitors from more than 140 countries. That is why every single destination in Europe wants to be a home of this project.

Ultra festival also takes places in cities like: Tokyo (13.35 M), Miami (5,5 M), Singapore (5.5 M), Rio de Janeiro (6.3M) i Seoul (10.1 M). If you take into consideration these are cities with more than just few million people, Split has to be extremely lucky to host festival like this one. After all, the festival is planetary famous.”

During UMF, Split-Dalmatian County has strongly increased arrival of guests. Compared to the year 2013, the year of first Ultra Music Festival, that growth is more than 110%.

zlatni rat beach private boat excursions

Zlatni rat private boat excursions

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Zlatni rat beach, as we previously wrote, is nature’s wonder. And what makes is especially amazing is the fact it changes its form depending on weather conditions

Zlatni rat beach is definitely the most famous Croatian beach and it is most popular private boat excursion from our offer. Its magical gold pebbles charm everyone who steps on it. It is practically impossible to stay indifferent to its beauty. You can easily point that both Brač Island and Bol town are blessed with Zlatni rat cause it brought them worldwide fame and glory and made them desirable summer destination.

It is cape or horn, as they call it, that is vertically attached to the mainland pointing in direction if Hvar Island, located just 1 mile from Bol town center. If you come by speed boat from direction of Split, you will “hit” its west face usually caressed by gentle summer wind Mistral. And if you come to Bol and wish to go to Zlatni rat, you will have to walk along splendid promenade shaded by a pine forrest. Along that walk you will witness so many other great beaches like Borak beach and Potočine beach. They both are really amazing cause dry part of the land is made of soft pebbles and when you step into the sea – you will see and feel find sand. Really something, isn’t it?

Zlatni rat is famous because of the choice you can make: while one side is open to the wind the other is usually calm and windless. So it depends on your preferences what will you do: take a long and hot sun bath on its eastern side facing Bol town or will you throw yourself into bumpy waves on the other, western side. But hey, that is not all! The peak of that pebble horn is reserved for adrenaline junkies – wind surfers and kite surfers.  Of course, if you prefer easy going holiday time you will probably test some of the beach bars located in heavy pine forrest in the middle of the horn.

Shape shifting beach  

Sea current is rather strong on the peak of Zlatni rat. It is nothing scary or unsafe but it is strong enough to keep the peak of the beach gently bent to the left pointing towards Bol town. But, sometimes during winter and autumn days, whne winds can be stronger than they usually are – they influence on form and direction if peak. How, you may wonder? The answer is simple – with strong, continuous waves and change in current. How that looks like – you can see on the photo below.

Private boat excursions to Zlatni rat

We recognized our guests’ needs and wishes to explore Zlatni rat even for a day. Truly speaking, that wasn’t that hard because we are deeply aware there are not that many places like this one on Earth. Even blog Myrandomstuff placed this beach among top 24 places in the whole world! So, we think there is no greater and better initiation to book Zlatni rat private boat excursion than just looking at its photos. There is only one question: are you willing to spend the best day of your vacation with us or not?

AMAZING BEACH HOUSE FOR RENT & BOAT EXCURSIONS

Have you ever, ever thought of spending your holiday in completely self sustainable house? But really, have you ever? Well if you did think about it and thought it would be „robinsonian“ experience – in his particular case, you would be wrong. Very wrong. This house in combination with our wide selection of boat excursions offers guarantee for splendid vacations in Dalmatia.

Fully Self Sustainable Holiday House for Rent

Fully Self Sustainable Beach House for Rent

Duga is the name of the house because of its location in charming bay of Duga on Čiovo Island. Sometimes you will hear locals talking about Čiovo island both as island and peninsula. Why is that? Well, Čiovo is connected to Trogir Island by an old draw bridge. Yes, you heard it right – connected to Trogir Island! If you did not know, Trogir IS actually a medieval city located on the small island between mainland and Čiovo Island. But….we will „touch“ Trogir more in some other articles and also, find out more how Trogir is neighbouring town of Split Airport which makes it ideal destination for boat excursions.

Čiovo is, as previously said, an island with an area of 28.8 square kilometres (11.1 sq mi) and total population of cca 5.100 people living there permanently. Of course, during hotter periods of the year, especially during summer, that number is multiplied. You will find there several villages: Arbanija, Žedno, Okrug Gornji, Okrug Donji, Slatine and Prizidnica.

The vegetation is typically Mediterranean, consisting mainly in understory (holm oak, myrtle, wormwood, juniper etc.). On the northern side (exposed to the wind bura) are forests of pine and cypress. Major crops include olives, figs, almonds, vines and citrus fruit. So as you can conclude, Čiovo has all Mediterranean ingredients necessary for great summer holiday.

Duga House – All ingreditens for perfect holiday

Holiday house we are talking about is located in Duga bay located on South Western part of the island.

Low price Private Boat Excursions – High Value Experience

Dalmatian Islands are true amazing and from our point of view, it would be shame if majority of tourist coming in Dalmatia wouldn’t explore them. So, our goal is to offer low cost private boat excursions with high end value. In that way, we hope not only to have a busy season this year but also to create critical mass of people that will later, when back at home, spread the world about Dalmatia and Croatia in general

As Dalmatian tourism rises in every aspect so does the offer of attractions and activities for visitors. Split especially witnesses an increase which is good both for general tourism offer but also it is good for the guests as the competition makes quality go up. So, one of the questions you may and probably will ask yourself is: Why should I choose Dalmatia Boat Transfers as my service provider for private boat transfers or private boat excursions?

What is Private Boat Transfer?

Low price private boat transfers

Dalmatia Boat Transfers – Ride in Sunset

Before we continue, let’s try to explain basic terminology. Private boat transfer is service provided by our company and many others that enables you to arrive at desired location in:

A) style – what is fancier than arriving with a speedboat?

and

B) completely relaxed an worry free.

Low price boat transfers

Boat Transfers – Ride in Style

Although you can find a lot of offers for transportation in Dalmatia a lot of them are group things like bus transfer from Split Airport to Split center or ferry port, ferry transfer from Split port to Island Brač (or other islands), etc… In all of these services, let’s be honest, you present nothing more than just a number to a service provider. “We have 34 passengers on that line” or “500 passengers on that ferry to XY island”. Of course, you pay the lower price but the level of service is also – LOW”. You have to wait for exact departure time, you have to squeeze with unknown persons and all other “charming” situations you can encounter during the crowded summer days. Private boat transfers on the other hand means you will be treated by your service provider with well deserved respect and he/she will probably treat you as a real person rather than just a guest number.

Low price private boat transfers

Choose Destination

In our case, private boat transfers mean: you will be welcomed with a signboard (since we wtill don’t know you and are meeting you for the first time) with your name on it – you will be treated as a VIP – you will get all attention you deserve when on holidays and most important thing of all – you will be stress free as someone else (we) are taking care of all those small things that make vacations great. So – no hurry “will I/we make it on time”, will there be available space for me/us, how much will we have to pay, etc….. With us, all the expenses are transparent and know to you far in advance so practically all you need to do is to choose the payment method. And we offer quite a few.

Low Cost Private boat excursions

Private Boat Excursions – Enjoy your time in Dalmatia

Private boat excursions have enormous advantages compared to group boat excursions: firstly, you don’t need to spend whole day with the people you see for the first time in your life – you don’t need to make compromises: if you want to stay longer on certain location you just stay without convincing anyone how great idea would be to stay (a bit) longer….Basically, with private boat excursions you are the boss of your time. Of course, there is a skipper who is in charge and his word is the last as he is in charge for your safety, but rest assure – he is there to give a good advice and make sure you spend memorable time with us.

Basically, what we want is for you to check the pricelist of all other boat excursions companies in the area. Yes, we really do want you to do that, we insist because we are sure you will come back to us when you realize that our private boat excursions are less expensive than their group tours. So, browse our web site and find what suites you best, send as an inquiry and …prepare for ultimate day trip of your life.

Looking forward to meet you in Dalmatia!

Split Boat Excursions

Split – Capital of Dalmatia

Dalmatia’s Capital – Center of Boat Excursions

The idea of this part of our new website is to deliver information not only about boat excursions and boat transfers but also about all interesting things to see and to visit. As our headquarter is located in Split, capital of Dalmatia, we like to call it the Capital of Boat excursions.

Split was founded by, hold your breath, ROMAN EMPEROR! Yes, it is true. The story says Roman Emperor Diocletian was born somewhere in this area and he chose perfect location for his retirement days. We don0t know if he used to do boat excursions from the boats in his fleet but we know some other facts about him and we will tell it to you.

Sometimes around 295 AD he issued an order for palace to be built. Since at that time Emperor was the law, the construction of the palace started sometimes around that time. As far as we know, the first time he entered the Palace was in 305 AD through the Northern Gates of the palace and cause of that they are named Golden Gates. That date today is celebrated as a birthday of Split city. So, we like to say that Split is more than 1700 years old.

Golden Gates

Emperor lived in the Palace until the day of his death in 316 AD although you can also read that he died in 315 or even 313 AD. Interestingly, his wife and daughter did not live with him.

He was known as one of the last but most vicious prosecutors of Christians and Christianity and history made a cruel joke with him. When neighboring city of Salona was destroyed by warrior tribes, the Salonians fled and found safety in abandoned palace. One of the first things they did was to come inside his mausoleum and threw out his bones. From that time till present day – his mausoleum is actually a Roman Catholic cathedral standing on his ceremonial square known as Peristil.

So, although Emperor Diocletian had no intention, as far as we know, to establish a city – he did so. Today we say how Diocletian’s Palace gave birth to the city. From that ancient time till present, people actually live inside the palace so many visitors are surprised to see it. Usually they expect something like Castle or Fortress – one of the visitors said: “I expected something like Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna but, man, this is much cooler!”.

RIVA – Main waterfront promenade

What Split used to be?

In recent history, lets say last 50, 60 years, Split was just a transit center if we are talking just from the tourism point of view. The city is actually perfectly located as a starting point for all middle Dalmatian Islands that used to be much more famous than city itself. But, in mid 90′ Split started to grow up. New hotels were built, museums were renewed, private accommodation went into strong expansion, etc….so it was logical something like Dalmatia Boat Transfers will happen too, something and someone who offers people to actually STAY in Split city but also visit and explore Dalmatian Islands thanks to affordable boat excursions and other boat services.

Hvar Island has been marked as a place with cleanest beaches in the area, ideal for private boat excursions

Hvar Island Private Boat Excursions

Hvar Island and Dalmatia got another international recognition for being the place with the cleanest beaches and clearest sea. Of course, we will not miss the opportunity to shout it out loud and invite you to search for your own ideal private boat excursions and great time on one of those beaches.

One international web portal (Thrillist) dedicated to travel says Hvar Island is the place to be if you are looking for clean sea and beaches. Among many other TOP beaches to be found in Dalmatia region, according to them, Hvar beaches are in its own high class.

If you don’t believe us, believe them when they say that sea has the level of clarity that can only be found in top hotel swimming pools without rich people floating around and peeing it that very same pool.

And above all that, Hvar Island has more than 2.700 (two thousand seven hundred) sunny hours per year! It is more than any other Croatian Island so don’t get surprised when you see shadows of many boats and speed boats sailing through green colored sea.
