The island of Piškera is a part of the Kornati National Park famous for its steep rock walls and unusually shaped bays. The yacht marina is located in the deep, safe strait between the island of Piškera and the island of Vela Panitula. If you wish to stay in the marina for the night, simply purchase an entrance ticket to the Kornati Park.
Tourists visiting the island of Murter are in for a treat. There is a small drawbridge in the town of Tisno connecting the island with the mainland, so it’s not difficult to get here. Those coming from the sea will appreciate modern Marina Khramina in the main city of the island Murter. There are two small settlements here as well – Jezera and Betina. The island is primarily known for its beaches: Kosirina, Luka, Podvrške and sandy Slanica – the most busy and popular. Those who are looking for peace and quiet will find a plethora of bays hidden from prying eyes.
The small island of Kaprije of the Šibenik archipelago brings joy with its pine forests, green valleys, and lack of cars. The island got its name from the caper plant, which grows here and is used as seasoning for various dishes. You should stay here to enjoy beautiful, gently sloping beaches washed by the turquoise-coloured waters of the Adriatic Sea.
Ugljan is one of the most densely populated islands in Croatia, known as a place with wonderful olive groves and first-class oil. The cities on the island are mostly concentrated on the eastern coast and the leftovers of antique architecture have been preserved in some of them. The island is loved by divers and yachtsmen alike, but for different reasons. Divers are drawn to the clean water and underwater sights while the yachtsmen are attracted to the numerous bays – Muline, Pavlešina, Prtljug, Mala Lamjana – all of which are located on the western side of the island, each with special berthing features. Ugljan beaches are sandy, shallow, and well-suited for family vacations.
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.
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.
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.
Nature gave the island of Vrgada a wonderful coastal line, picturesque coniferous forests and fertile fields. You should come here to see the Mediterranean “as it was in the past.” There are neither cars, nor noise, nor smoke here, only the smell of pines, a transparent sea, a medieval monastery, and a Venetian church built on the foundations of old Illyrian settlements.
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.

Silba is one of the greenest islands in Croatia, and will be liked by beach vacation fans. Sheltered harbours, tiny bays, and sandy coast will be well-suited for families with children. There are neither cars, nor hotels and noisy late-night parties here, only fresh air, turquoise-coloured water, mild climate, and an ideal location for water sports.
