Beyoncé and Jay-Z have left Croatia. The celebrity couple were cruising the Adriatic this summer on the elegant mega yacht Lana and at 107 metres long the most famous couple in the world had plenty of room to stretch out. Lana dropped anchor this afternoon in the Bay of Župa, just south of Dubrovnik, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z took the yacht’s launch to a waiting chauffeur before heading towards Dubrovnik Airport.
This isn’t the singing duo’s first trip to Croatia. In 2009 they walked the streets of the Old City of Dubrovnik and also cruised the Adriatic, and were spotted having fun on jet-skis in front of the walled city of Dubrovnik. That year they also visited the picturesque town of Cavtat.

This time they plumped on Croatia as the location for Beyoncé’s 39th birthday party, with the couple enjoying a romantic lunch on an island located near the heart-shaped island of Galešnjak. Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrated in fine style with numerous flowers surrounding the couple. Of course a host of security guards were on hand to make sure that no one disturbed the celebrity pair and their birthday meal.

And this summer break in Croatia was a luxury one on board the yacht Lana. If you were thinking of following in Beyoncé’s footsteps a week’s charter of Lana will set you back around $2 million. With a crew of 31 and room for 12 guests Lana is the height of luxury. And at anchor in the Bay of Župa as the September sun set she certainly made a big impression.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z aren’t the only celebrities to sail into Dubrovnik waters this summer season. Sir Rod Stewart, Magic Johnson and Owen Wilson have all been spotted, amongst others, enjoying the sights and sounds of the pearl of the Adriatic this year.
