Jutting off the southern coast of Croatia, the peninsula of Peljesac provides a snapshot of relaxed luxury in the Adriatic Sea. Covered with soft, jagged mountains, verdant valleys, rolling hills, magical coves and vast vineyards, this peninsula evokes an air of ancient whimsy unlike any other place on earth, making it a desirable stop on yacht charters in Croatia.
Just a short sail through the Peljesac Channel from the island of Korcula, Peljesac is dotted with ancient villages, abandoned villas and the remains of stone walls and columns. The meeting point of nature and modernism, the peninsula’s villages are filled with local cafes, interesting shops and colorful marketplaces; all surrounded by lemon, fig and almond trees, shrubs of herbs, patches of wildflowers, and enchanting, pebbled beaches. For the best of watersports the area has to offer, head to Peljesac’s town of Viganj – it is Croatia’s windsurfing capital.More info
