Hvar is the Croatian ‘Saint-Tropez’ with its beautiful and clear waters and glamorous surroundings, but this little fishing village still manages to maintain an intimacy and friendly vibe which is ideal for sharing a special drink with friends or heading out to a bar. The bar ‘Carpe Diem’ makes the reputation of the town. This is a cocktail bar that you find in the old town, along the old port along the sea. Novalja is also a great town for those in search of vibrant nightlife during a yacht charter in Sukosan. The Ibiza equivalent, you can party all night long in this part of the country.
There are many ways to keep moving during your charter that are slightly more exciting alternatives to football or tennis; there are a variety of water sports e.g. diving, canoeing and snorkelling or extreme sports e.g. hiking, cliff jumping and parachuting, that you can take part in. The ‘Zipline d’Omiš’ is a remarkable example of this; a zipline 2100 metres long which stretches over the canyon and the river Cetina will take you to heights that you have never even dreamed of before. This unique experience will take your breath away.
Croatian gastronomy rivals the best that even Italy has to offer. We have composed a short but by no means comprehensive list of some of the typical dishes you should sample during your stay. Read on to find out more about what to order during your yacht charter in Sukosan.
Called ‘Paški sir’, this cheese is produced on Pag island and is usually eaten as a starter or an aperitif. This creamy cheese has become a symbol with Dalmatian cuisine, is relatively cheap and a great bite to start off any meal with. Start as you mean to go on… with excellent food choices!
This is a speciality to Croatia with fish at the heart of it. You can use any type of fish to make the dish, cook the pieces in white wine and sometimes tomato. The dish is usually served with polenta and the price of this dish in a restaurant varies according to the fish used.
Cuttlefish is common to the Adriatic coast and this typical Croatian dish is sure to get your taste buds tingling. The rice is cooked with the cuttlefish and with the ink. Some restaurants may prefer to use powdered cuttlefish ink rather than fresh, but regardless this dish is delicious.
Croatia mainly produces lager and Karlovačko or Ožujsko are the two beers which are most common in the country. Karlovačko is characterised by its golden flavour and refreshing bitter taste. It won a gold medal in 2005 in the ‘Brewing Industry International Awards’ so it is well-renowned for its beautiful taste. Try it in any bar or restaurant in Croatia. You can also find a non-alcoholic beer from the same brand. Ožujsko has been on the market since 1892 and is the most sold beer in the country. You can find the original as well as different fruity flavours in any bar or restaurant.
This Croatian beauty combines pasta, cheese and cream. Do those three ingredients not say it all? These nuggets are served hot and may seem heavy, but they are simply delicious. In harsh winters or colder conditions, they are just the trick. Beat off chilly or crisp winds during your yacht charter in Sukosan with a generous serving of this dish.
Octopus is found anywhere along the Adriatic Coast and you can normally find it on the menu in most bars and restaurants. Octopus salad is a cold salad which is made up of little chunks of octopus, tomatoes, potatoes, onions and capers. Versions and takes of the dish vary according to restaurant. The salad is also garnished with a drizzle of olive oil.
The local currency is called the Kuna. Even though Croatia has been a part of the European Union since 2013, the Euro is not accepted, and you can change money on the island in banks or in the airport before you arrive. Card payment is accepted, and you can also make cash withdrawals if necessary. The main languages spoken in Croatia are: Croatian, English, German and Italian. In terms of living costs, a yacht charter in Sukosan is affordable because meals out are relatively cheap in comparison to the UK. A main meal will often equate to about 10 euros and significantly less for a pizza or café food. Supermarkets and market places are also cheaper than in the UK which makes provisioning for your charter easy.
