Endearingly remote, the diminutive, pine-shaded isle of Budikovac is far removed from the vibrant grandeur of some of Croatia's more popular haunts. For yacht charter guests seeking glorious solitude, Budikovac is the very epitome of it: promising quaint, fine pebbled beaches and waters an unfathomable shade of shimmering turquoise.
It's mostly uninhabited, save but one resident: Mr. Andro, an ex-captain and much-loved Adriatic local. Running the island's humble restaurant, he spends all year long tending to his throng of animals (you can visit the farm) and vegetable patch. Most produced ends up on the menu.
You'll find this verdant island just off the island of Vis, and it's a wonderful spot to spend a sunbaked afternoon floating and unwinding in this wild slice of East Mediterranean paradise. With its deliciously warm, crystal clear waters, this lagoon is prime for exploration, so be sure to slip on some snorkel gear whilst you are here.
Unlike a number of other Croatian anchorages, Budikovac remains blissfully quiet even in the balmy summer months. Apart from the discerning traveler, the island remains top-secret to the masses.
If you are looking for a stunning remote anchorage that eludes the crowds during your yacht rental in Croatia, Budikovac ticks all the boxes.
