Central Dalmatia Most popular sailing region in Croatia due to wide touristic offer, very good traffic connections and largest number of charter boats available.
This area really has lot to offer, number of marinas and safe harbours is larger here than north. Islands here are bigger, with more interesting harbours and towns. One of the reasons for it's popularity owes to "one way" sailing between Split and Dubrovnik. Winds in this area are milder than north, so very often weather is less dangerous than on Kvarner for example. Distances between islands are not big so it's very easy to plan the route, there are always places to hide in case of bad weather. One of things to help easier sailing is lack of rocks and underwater reefs, what can be quite demading in North Dalmatia.
