Sailing in Slovenia

Sailing has a long tradition on the Slovenian coast. Portorož is an ideal starting point for shorter and longer sailing trips. The resort is located on the Adriatic coast as well as on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula. The proximity to Italy and Croatia makes it possible to explore several countries with a yacht charter from Slovenia.

The Slovenian Riviera is a culturally diverse sailing area and a worthwhile starting point for a sailing trip in all directions. The sailing route to Trieste, Grado and Venice in Italy or along the Istrian coast in a southerly direction is particularly popular. The Pitter Yachting base in Portorož belongs to the municipality of Piran and is known among sailors for its quiet bays and the most beautiful sandy beach on the Slovenian Adriatic. With a coastline of 47 km, the Slovenian Riviera is very small, but nevertheless a charming sailing destination. A sailing trip in Slovenia is especially recommended for those looking for a relaxed yacht charter. In addition to the old port cities of Piran, Koper and Izola in Slovenia, Trieste in Italy, and the old colonial towns of Croatia Umag, Novigrad, Porec and Rovinj are also popular destinations on a yacht charter from Portorož.

Sailing in Slovenia is possible from April to October due to the Mediterranean climate. Due to its accessibility from Austria and Germany and its good infrastructure, even short sailing trips are worthwhile.

The marina in Portorož is known for the annual boat show "Internautica". It is the largest international trade fair on the Adriatic for sailors, sailing yachts and boats. Portorož is a lively tourist town, with the well-known Grand Casino Portorož offering a vibrant nightlife.

Checking-in and checking-out from Portorož to Italy or Croatia

Italy: If you want to sail from Slovenia to Italy, you don't have to pay attention to anything. Both countries are in the Schengen area and therefore no clearance is necessary.

Croatia: But if you want to sail from Slovenia to Croatia, you have to get a crew list from the harbour captain in Piran. The official crew list required for Croatia is not common in Slovenia and Italy. With this crew list, you can then sail directly to a customs port or harbour master in Croatia (Umag or Novigrad) and officially register in Croatia.

  • The Croatian tourist tax must currently be paid online in advance.
  • On the way back, check out again in Croatia (Umag or Novigrad) and then sail directly back to Slovenia/Piran and check in again there.
  • Please note: You are not allowed to stop between Slovenia and Croatia (you are also not allowed to anchor) until you have registered or deregistered.
