About North Dalmatia

Straddling the northern Dalmatia refers to sailing through Zadar and Šibenik archipelago. This area is well known for its warm sea, olives, wine, fish, songs and picturesque stone plots (villages) as genuine Mediterranean. Starting from north to south you come across Kornati archipelago that counts more than three hundred islands, islets and seaside reefs. Because of its well indented coast and exceptional natural beauty this area is proclaimed a national park and it is very attractive for sailors. Sailing around Kornati islands are dream of every sailor. Nearby is a nature park Telašćica which is a part of Dugi otok island, well know for its high cliffs and salt lake. This area is full of islands and bays, small fisherman villages and isolated restaurants where you can enjoy in seafood delicacies and unpretentious atmosphere.

Sailing to the south you arrive to bigger island Prvić, Kaprij and Zlarin enriched with beautiful nature and fisherman villages that preserved traditional life style. Don’t forget to visit another national park nearby – canyon of river Krka with its breathtaking waterfalls. For those who prefer night life and similar contents we suggest to visit a coastal towns Vodice, Skradin or Primošten. This region is ideal for sailing because of its diversities. Distances between numerous islands are small, waterways are protected from large winds and waves so there is always an opportunity for organising pleasant tour. A great advantage of this area is proximity to airports (Zadar, Split, Zagreb) as well as large selection of vessels and starting points-marinas. There is a possibility to visit another islands of Split region, like Hvar, Šolta and Vis.
