Destinations on this sailing trip:
ACI marina Split
Departure by sailing boat from ACI Marina Split. ACI marina Split is located on the western shore, just a few minutes’ walk from the old town of Split. The Split yacht harbour of ACI Marina Split is the departing port of your sailing itinerary in Croatia: Fortresses and swimming.
Maslinica (Šolta island)
Located on the western part of the island Šolta lies Maslinica, a nice fisherman’s village. Maslinica has one of the best sunsets on the Adriatic overlooking seven little islets in front of the bay. One of the main nautical destinations on Šolta is Sesula bay. Partly because of the beauty of the bay with its clear sea water, and partly because of the restaurants in the bay. Restaurant bar Šišmiš in the evening turns into a cocktail bar and is the favourite place of many yachtsmen.
The island of Zlarin is a beautiful, peaceful island with just one settlement. Cars are not allowed on the island. Zlarin is a favourite sailing destination for its tranquillity, idyllic coves, beaches, sandy seabed and good food. We moor the sailboat in the village of Zlarin. There are a few excellent restaurants that are often visited by famous celebs. Like Bono Vox from U2 who dined in the Konoba, a traditional restaurant. Who knows which celebrity you will see on the island. One of the traditions of the island inhabitants is coral harvesting and processing. You can buy jewellery with corals in the two island jewelleries, a great souvenir to bring from your sailing holidays in Croatia.
Krka Waterfalls (Skradin)
The Krka waterfalls lie around 10nm inland of the shore of Šibenik. Sailing up the Krka river leads you to the fresh water lake of Prokljansko Jezero and to the ACI yacht harbour in the town of Skradin. You will have to leave the yacht here and take a National Park boat to the entrance of the National Park. The top attractions of the park are the waterfalls, including the Skradinski Buk, where you can actually swim very close to the waterfall. You can hike through the park, watch the waterfalls, cascades, rich flora and fauna and amazing landscape. Enjoy a refreshing day at the falls.
Šibenik with its four fortresses, 24 churches, cathedral (UNESCO), gothic and renaissance buildings often surprises its visitors. The first sign that you are sailing near Šibenik is the St. Nicholas fortress in the sea, which you can sail around. Arriving in Šibenik, we moor the sailboat on the quay and you can go wandering through the old city centre and climb up to the St. Michaels fortress from which you have a beautiful view over Šibenik and the sea.
Primošten is a picturesque fishermen town located on a small peninsula. Enjoy the charming views of the town while sailing around the peninsula. Walk through the narrow streets up the hill to the church and watch the sunset over the Adriatic Sea and islands. You can dine in one of the numerous good restaurants, where fish and wine are predominant, and have a good time!
Trogir is another UNESCO World Heritage site on your sailing holiday in Croatia and a favourite destination of many yachters. We moor the sailboat in the marina of Trogir and from there you have a marvellous view over the town and luxury yachts on the waterfront. The historic centre of Trogir, with its fortress, gates, towers and cathedral is a fantastic place. The entire impression is almost medieval. There are many elegant restaurants and bars in the old centre and on the waterfront where you can enjoy the vivid atmosphere till late at night.
Sailing in the Krknjaši bay you will get the feeling that you are in the Caribbean. This tropical paradise is located among the island of Veli Drvenik and the islets of Veli Krknjaš and Mali Krknjaš. The sea has an incredible turquoise blue colour and the water with sandy seabed is very shallow. It is the perfect place for swimming and snorkelling.
When sailing to Split and entering the harbour you will understand why this 1700 years old town is often referred to as the pearl of the Mediterranean. Split has an amazing waterfront built along the walls of the palace of roman emperor Diocletian. During the centuries a whole town has developed within the roman palace, many houses were built leaning on the walls of the palace. You can still visit the bacement of the roman palace, the Jupiter temple and palace’s Peristyle. Or you can wander through the labyrinth of old, narrow streets for hours. The whole old town of Split and it’s waterfront is full of good places to shop, eat or have a drink.
