Find perfect wind and waves on the beautiful Croatian coast


by Croatia Gems 14th March 2022

Croatia found its first fans of windsurfing in the 70’s. Over time, the desire for “riding the waves” became more than just a sport. Croatia has long embraced the most attractive summer sports activity as an important part of its tourist attractions.

If you decide to try the most popular summer sport, Croatia will be happy to host you at  one of its Croatian villas to rent on the perfect surfing locations of its coasts and islands.

Numerous international regattas and championships take place in Viganj on the Peljesac peninsula. The conditions here are perfect  for both windsurfing and kite surfing. Base yourself in one of the lovely Dubrovnik family villas and make the easy drive up ready for the afternoon’s mistral.

The famous  beach in Bol on Brac island is also ideal for surfing.  Zlatni Rat is another popular place for surfers to gather – with several wind surfing schools. Summer mornings in Croatia, filled with gentle winds, are perfect for beginners. Croatia will delight skilled windsurfers as well, and they will not forget the afternoon hours and the famous north-west wind – mistral.  Stay in Croatian villas to rent somewhere a little more relaxing like nearby Sumartin in a lovely Brac family villa and you have the perfect holiday – plenty of action during the day and somewhere peaceful to return to at night.

Whether you’re already a professional surfer or an excited beginner, many surfing clubs and surfing schools are awaiting along the coast, and there are also regular regattas and competitions.

Find your perfect wind and perfect waves on the beautiful Croatian coast!
