From Split to Primošten
We’ll start our sailing adventure from Split to the charming coastal town of Primošten. Primošten lies on an island connected to the mainland. Settled between Šibenik and Trogir, Primošten is a typical Dalmatian town with small narrow streets and stone houses. Until the 16th century, Primošten was a fishing island, and at the same time, locals built the movable bridge to connect it to the coast. Today, locals mainly focus on tourism and agriculture, especially on vineyards. We’ll find some beautiful coves and spend some time swimming or snorkeling. We will anchor in the port of Primošten.
Skradin and Krka Waterfalls
In the early morning, we will leave Primošten and sail to Skradin, one of the oldest Croatian town, situated on the river Krka, at the entrance to the Krka National Park. Skradin is a city of long and rich history that, based on archaeological findings, can be traced back to the prehistoric Iron Age. The structure of the town was built mainly in the 18th and 19th centuries, influenced by Venetian design. Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean city with narrow paved streets, alleys, and vaults. The entire city center is a protected cultural monument. We recommend you to visit the Krka National Park, an untouched natural gem. Two large waterfalls Skradinski Buk and Roski, and a monastery on the island of Visovac situated in the middle of lake Visovac, are worth seeing. The Park includes 7 travertine waterfalls and covers an area of 109 km². Skradin has one of the best ACI marinas in Croatia, where we will dock for the night.
True nautical wonder - Kornati Islands
On this day of our sailing adventure, we will cruise to nautical paradise Kornati Islands, an archipelago of 140 islands and islets. When we enter the world of a magical National Park Kornati, you will see many enigmatic lagoons and white beaches, which will leave you breathless. The vegetation is different from the typical Croatian shore, instead of a rich pine forest, you will find white cliffs and endless azure sea. The Kornati Islands cover an area of 320 km², and it's the most indented island ecosystem in the Adriatic Sea. The islands characterize cracks, caves, and rugged cliffs. Small marina Piškera will be our anchoring place for the night.
After magnificent experience on the Kornati Islands, we head to the island of Kaprije. This little gem was named after the Mediterranean plant caper, which grows on the island, and is also an essential ingredient in traditional Croatian cuisine. Kaprije is a peaceful oasis because cars are not allowed on the island, and with just a few restaurants and cafes on the island, you can relax away from the crowds.
On the last day of this incredible journey, we will sail back to Split. We will leave Kaprije early in the morning, so we have enough time to enjoy utterly gorgeous bay Krknjaši on the island of Drvenik Veli. Krknjaši bay is famous for its beautiful shallow sandy beaches. The white sandy lagoon looks more like tropical shore than the Adriatic. Without a doubt, this is a perfect way to end this sailing trip before we say goodbye to each other in the late afternoon in Split.
