Seven-day route from Zadar, including visits to the islands of Ugljan, Molat, Ilovik, Losinj, Rab and Olib.
Day 1: Zadar - Sutomiscica (3 NM)
Marina Zadar will be the first stop on this route. First, prepare the yacht for the cruise, familiarize yourself with the equipment, and discuss important details with the manager. After everything is accomplished, you’ll have time left to take a walk and explore Zadar.
Day 2: Sutomiscica - Molat (17 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 3: Molat - Ilovik (23 NM)
Your route will be blessed with beauty if you pass between Ilovik Island and St. Peter Island. The shores here have numerous bays, the biggest, Paržine, is located in the southeast. Ilovik is often called the flower island – the city of the same name is full of Mediterranean greenery and the sweet smell of oleanders, palms, and eucalyptus.
Day 4: Ilovik - Veli Losinj (4 NM)
Veli Lošinj is located in a narrow protected bay, at the foot of Mount St. John. Stately houses rise above the harbour, with luxurious villas and green gardens as a background. The tiny fishermen’s village of Rovenska with an excellent beach is located to the south of the city. Lošinj island is located in the Kvarner Gulf, between the Istria peninsular and the Dalmatian coast, and is surrounded by the belt of small isles. Two of its main cities are Mali and Veli Lošinj. The mild climate, no winters or strong winds, maritime air and irregular coastline attract many yachtsmen.
Day 5: Veli Losinj - Rab (17 NM)
The nature of Rab Island is full of contradictions. While its eastern side looks nearly perfectly straight, the western part is irregular with numerous bays of various kinds. There are mountains and winds in the east and an abundance of vegetation and mild climate in the west. For this reason the major cities, Rab, Lopar, and Supertarska Draga all lie in the west. Like many other regions of Croatia, the island developed under the influence of numerous and various cultural periods: from the Roman Empire and Byzantium to Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The main city on the island of the same name is known for its medieval architecture. The Benedictine Monastery, the Cathedral of St. Anthony and four bell towers of various churches are all original symbols of the city. Resort Lopar is presented to all tourists, first of all, as the birthplace of the founder of the Republic of San Marino. There are beaches to satisfy every taste: pebble, sandy, rocky, with steep and gentle slopes, which will be especially liked by families with children. They serve homemade wine in local restaurants as well as fresh seafood, for example, lobsters as well as the traditional Rabian cake – the most famous dessert of the island.
Day 6: Rab - Olib (24 NM)
Olib Island and the village of the same name are the classical places for recreation on the Croatian coast. There are many beaches, no cars, shallow bays, fresh seafood and homemade wine – what else do you need for the Mediterranean idyll? Add a few walks along sleepy streets, diving, and a couple of architectural monuments for good measure, and you’re all set.
