Places to visit:
  • Trogir

    Trogir, a beautifully preserved medieval town, is conveniently positioned on a small island near Split airport, connected to the mainland by one bridge and tied to the outlying island of Čiovo by the second. The settlement dates back to the 3rd century BC, when it was colonized by the Greeks. It’s today’s charm lies in stone-paved narrow streets and squares created during the Venetian period and it’s enlisted on the UNESCO`s world heritage list as the best preserved medieval town. Although positioned in Middle Dalmatia it is an excellent starting point for exploring the Northern Dalmatia sailing aria as it is only 19 nm away from Primošten – the starting point of our recommended sailing route.

  • Primošten

    Primošten is an irresistible small town that has preserved the atmosphere and all the architectural features of a medieval Mediterranean fishing village. Built on an islet and later artificially connected with the land, Primošten is one of the most popular touristic places  which real expansion begins in the late 60 -s of the last century when all the hotels and infrastructure were built and when tourism was main economical industry. Its Marina Kremik is naturally sheltered from the winds and beautifully surrounded by vineyards in the form of stone honeycomb which makes it unique in the Adriatic.

  • Skradin

    Skradin is not a tourist spot itself, but is a start point for thousands of tourists heading to Krka National Park and in the last few years it’s becoming more and more attractive to guest on sailing holidays due to its splendid marina. Here you can find out all the necessary information in the tourist office and buy the entrance ticket to National Park Krka. Make sure you visit the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, the tiny island of Visovac and don’t forget your swimsuit as it’s allowed to swim at the lower parts of the national park.

  • Murter

    Murter, although relatively small, boasts of a rich variety of indented coves and may actually be considered as one long beach. As you cruise the island, the coast line transforms from the peaceful, isolated, even nudist beaches to the livelier, fun-filled beaches. In addition to some great marinas, we would also recommend visiting Kosirina gulf to enjoy its clear and cool waters, rocky and pebble shores and explore excellent snorkeling and swimming spots. A shade is not so thick here so we recommend coming either early in the morning or late in the  afternoon – these are the best hours for swimming anyways and the beaches are not crowded then.

  • Kornati

    Kornati archipelago consists of 140 islands, with 89 of them declared a Croatian National Park in 1980. It spreads over a surface of 114 m2 and is one of the most indented island groups of the Mediterranean. With its exceptionally clear sea, numerous bays and small ports, Kornati are a must destination for sailors and the right choice for modern Robinsons. George Bernard Shaw, famous Irish playwright and co-founder of the London School of Economics visited this part of the Adriatic and stated; „ On the last day of the Creation God desired to crown His work and thus created Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath”..

  • Piškera

    Piškera is a tiny island situated just off the SW coast of Kornati. The island is not permanently inhabited, but prides itself with well sheltered ACI marina with 150 berths. The marina here gets very full, so we recommend an early arrival to secure a berth. As the approach from the northwest between the island of Pantula vela and Piškera is very shallow and dangerous due to numerous rocks we recommend approaching it form Cape Opat.

  • Kaprije

    Kaprije is a small island situated in the central part of the Sibenik archipelago with the surface of only 9.67km2. During the 14th and the 15th century the island belonged to the noblemen Sibenik families, and later on during the Turkish invasions became a refugee inhabited by the entire mainland population. Naturally sheltered from all the winds, the Kaprije port enables safe berthing to the numerous yacht boats and sailors offering relaxation and local specialties. Its marvelous sunsets, sea of exceptional clarity, hidden caves and Mid Mediterranean climate, inspire tourists to continually come back.

  • Rogoznica

    Rogoznica is a small fishermen village located on a peninsula, that was once a small island Kopara, but in the second half of the 19 century got artificially connected to the land. Rogoznica has one of the most beautiful marinas in the Adriatic – Marina Frapa built on an artificial island and has a total of 450 berths. Rogoznica is a typical Dalmatian village with narrow streets, stone houses and beautiful pebble beaches.
