In the south of Dalmatia, where the string of Adriatic islands ends and the open sea begins, at the foothills of Srđ hill lies the pearl of the Adriatic, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 7th century. The city of Dubrovnik, which offers a surpassingly rich cultural heritage and a bewildering array of visitor services, houses one of the most beautiful marinas in the Adriatic, a mere 6 km from the city centre. For 15 years in a row ACI Marina Dubrovnik has been awarded the Blue Flag for its perfectly clean sea, and has been declared the best marina in the Adriatic (in the 250-450 berth category) in the “Flower of Tourism – Quality for Croatia” competition for three consecutive years (2010-2012). It is one of the safest marinas to berth, keep and maintain your vessel in. All year round it provides shelter for 380 boats in wet berths and 140 in dry berths, and can accommodate mega yachts up to 60 metres long.
The coastal area of the Dubrovnik region, comprising the islands of Korčula, Mljet, Lastovo and the Elaphite archipelago, as well as the Pelješac peninsula, makes ACI Marina Dubrovnik an ideal starting point for a complete boating adventure. The cuisine of the region, with its Mediterranean, Oriental and Continental influences, will provide unforgettable gastronomic delights for even the most demanding of palates, while visitors’ thirst for activity holidays will be quenched by numerous sports activities which can be enjoyed here – from diving and exploring Dubrovnik’s undersea world and protected underwater archaeological sites, to tennis, free-climbing, and exciting adventures in Prevlaka Park.
