The route from the amazing Sibenik to Kaprije, Iz, Molat, Ugljan, Vragda islands, and parks Kornati and Telascica.
Day 1: Sibenik - Kaprije (12 NM)
Sibenik is a wonderful place to start your trip over Croatia. On the first day, you’ll have an opportunity to see the best-known sights of the city, but arrival at the marina will be the main event. Be sure to discuss the route with the manager and check the weather forecast.
Day 2: Kaprije - NP Kornati (18 NM)
The Kornati archipelago and the National Park of the same name are 89 closely located islands with mazes of straits between them. It’s not surprising that yachtsmen love the region so much – narrow canals and pearly reefs are combined with steep rock walls and cliffs create a mesmerizing seascape. Many of the islands are uninhabited; pay some of them a visit. Drop into the Byzantium Fortress of Tureta on the isle of Kornat, or walk between olives and pines. Travel down to the southern end of the archipelago and have a meal in local konobas.
Day 3: NP Kornati - Telascica (13 NM)
The best view of the bay and the nature park Telašćica opens from the sea. The bay with a very irregular coast pushes into the island of Dugi Otok for 8 kilometers and there are 6 small, elegant-shaped isles in the water area. Steep rock walls going up to 160 meters, flocks of birds nesting nearby, coniferous forests crowning the land, and cozy sandy beaches are sure you catch your eye. When you go ashore, you should first go to Lake Mir. The water there is salty, reaching temperatures of +33 degrees in summer, and you’ll find therapeutic mud on the southeastern shore.
Day 4: Telascica - Veli Iz (15 NM)
Iž Island is located between the islands of Dugi-Otok and Ugljan and is surrounded by the belt of tiny uninhabited isles: Fulija, Knežak, Rutnjak, and others. The main two villages here are Veli Iž and Mali Iž and there are medieval architectural monuments preserved in both: the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul and a castle in Roman style. Local residents are proud of their traditions in pottery, so this is the place to buy earthenware souvenirs and pottery.
Day 5: Veli Iz - Molat (15 NM)
Molat is a small island in Northern Dalmatia, overgrown with thick bushes and coniferous forests. Molat has become the ideal place for those who prefer nature to noisy civilization and elect to take long walks while on vacation. Yachtsmen appreciate the numerous bays of the island; the northeastern coast here is low, and the southwestern coast is mostly steep, with the view of the sea.
Day 6: Molat - Sutomiscica (18 NM)
Sutomišćica is a small port village on the eastern end of Ugljan Island. One of the most up-to-date and busy marinas in Croatia is located here, but the village is very quiet and serene with just slightly more than 300 inhabitants. A spacious harbour, national restaurants, a splendid view of Zadar, and clean beaches welcome yachtsmen to this village.
Day 7: Sutomiscica - Vrgada - Sibenik (43 NM)
Your voyage is coming to an end. Prepare the yacht for transferring back over to the charter company, assess the equipment’s operation, and resupply water and fuel. After handing the vessel over successfully, take leisurely walk through Sibenik and don’t forget to pick up souvenirs for your friends.
