Croatia is the country with the largest charter fleet in the world, and an enviable number of high-quality nautical marinas play a big role in this. Around the Croatian coast, there are approximately 60 marinas that offer over 16,000 berths, over 8,500 dry berths, and numerous additional berths in ports. But even more important is the fact that every year the services in the marinas improve to meet all the needs of modern sailors. Some of the examples that contribute to this trend are, for example, the opening of restaurants within marinas, which offer top-notch traditional cuisine. In addition, many marinas offer facilities with accommodation at the highest levels. Some of them are presented below.
