WHEN TO CHARTER IN ROVINJ
The best months to charter a yacht in Rovinj are June or September. The reason is very simple – there are far fewer people, the sea is warm, and the sailing conditions are ideal. If you cannot make it in September, you can consider a yacht charter in Rovinj in the last few weeks of May and the first few weeks of June.
Yachting season lasts from April until November, but the high season is from late June to mid-September, with its peak in July and August. Luckily, Rovinj is blessed with an excellent climate and a great number of sunny days, which makes it perfect for chartering a yacht in the shoulder season (early spring and autumn).
In the yacht charter season, cruising conditions are marvellous. The air temperature is between 25C (77F) and 30C (86F) degrees and the sea is nice and warm, with temperatures at around 20C (68F) degrees in July, and by the end of August, at 25C (77F) degrees.
The winds are particularly reliable during the yachting season with the daytime winds usually considered mild. Their predominant direction is landward, which is driven by the sun – as the land warms and the air above it rises during the day, the air is drawn in by the sea.

This harbour has a capacity of 196 berths and it is equipped for boats up to 100m in length. You can easily berth with your yacht charter, approaching between St. Katarina Island and the town harbour breakwater.
Valdebora Bay – one of the safest anchorages only 300m from Rovinj and just 1km north from the Red Island. This bay is 20 m deep, which is perfect for anchoring your yacht without worrying about depth. On the nearby Red Island, you will find 2 secluded anchorages suited for your yacht charter with 7 good buoys in front of the beach. You can easily access the island beaches with your tender.
Veli Brijun Port – Brijuni is a true nature’s masterpiece filled with unique yacht charter experiences. We recommend docking in Veli Brijun Port, which provides a safe place to moor yachts up to 55m (180ft) in length, and for the larger megayachts, there is a secured mooring in the Fažana channel.
Witness spectacular vistas of unspoiled nature, visit a safari park, swim and snorkel in pristine water or play golf on the Veli Brijun Island during your yacht charter holiday.
St. Nicholas’ Bay on Mali Brijun – Discover the untouched vegetation and lush nature in National Park Brijuni and escape the brimming summer crowds to Mali Brijun island. This stunning but often overlooked island in the National Park will amaze you with its crystal-clear water and unique landscapes.
Mali Brijun is rich in gentle, pristine bays and beautiful pebbly beaches where you can relax on top of your sundeck in St.Nicholas bay, surrounded by silence and scents of summer.
