Yacht Charter in Rogoznica
Yacht Charter Rogoznica
On a Rogoznica yacht charter with Borrow a Boat you can explore much of the Dalmatian coast with the only things stopping you being how long your sailing holiday lasts. Whatever you want from a Rogoznica sailing trip, from island hopping to great cuisine, a Rogoznica yacht charter is going to be an unforgettable experience.
Seafarers will appreciate Cape Planka near Rogoznica where the Bora and Jura winds meet on the Croatian coast. At sea the warm of the Mediterranean and cool currents of the northern Adriatic meet here too, making for some interesting sailing in the winter months. However thanks to the topography of the area, you will see just four days of rain a month on average throughout the summer.
The Dragon's Eye lake has no surface connection to the sea but is connected by underwater fissures in the rock. It has a unique ecosystem and chemistry that makes it appear to boil at times. This led to Greek mythology where Aristoles, great-grandson of Jason of the Argonauts, fought a dragon who when dying threw one eye into the sea and the other onto the coastline where the Dragon's Eye was formed. It's safe enough to swim in today and cliff divers also dive into it from 25 metres above.
Human as well as immortals' history has had an impact here too. The Votive Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Chapel commemorates a fisherman's discovery of a painting of the Virgin Mary in 1722, and the chapel there today is said to protect seafarers.
There is so much to Rogoznica with its safe marina, its Blue Flagwater quality beautiful beaches and 50km of coastline you could easily get lost in this Dalmatian region for days and still want for more.

Marina Frapa is one of the best marinas in Croatia bar none. Capable of taking superyacht charters and luxury yacht charters, and with a large yacht rental fleet, it is extremely well equipped.

On a northerly leg you can head for Zadar and the Kornati Islands. On a southerly leg, the old town of Trogir and the Dalmatian Islands are in reach. Rogoznica itself caters for tastes young and old - a sailing vacation can suit younger and older types too. Beautiful beaches, nightclubs and a 24 hour day your thing? That itch can be scratched. Culture, history and natural wonders float your boat? A Rogoznica yacht charter can meet those desires too.
