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: Sailing in Pure Nature.
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.
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 Krka falls.
Murter island (Jezera)
The island of Murter almost touches the mainland and although it is well connected to the mainland by a small bridge, the island has preserved its typical island way of life. Island Murter offers a combination of beautiful nature, charming old fishermen’s’ settlements, sandy beaches and lots of coves excellent for swimming, snorkling and relaxing on the sailboat. Murter is often called the Door of the Kornati Archipelago, since it is the starting point when sailing to the Kornati islands.
Kornati islands National park
The Kornati islands are in one word spectacular. Sailing the Kornati islands is a special experience and you will be overwhelmed by the impressive landscape and tranquillity. The Kornati archipelago consists of 140 uninhabited islands, islets and reefs. The ‘naked’ islands, crystal clear sea and cliffs facing the open sea are incredible and will leave you breathless.
One of the ACI yacht harbours in the Kornati archipelago is located on the island of Žut, the second largest island in the Kornati archipelago. Žut is an uninhabited island, only fishermen and shepherds occasionally come from the island Murter as well as farmers who take care of their olive-, figtrees and wineyards on the island.
Half-way the sailing route through the Kornati National Park lies ACI yacht harbour Marina Piškera. Piškera is a beautiful, pristine, uninhabited island, surrounded by stunning islets, cliffs and rocks. ACI Marina Piškera is located between the islands of Piškera and Panitula Vela.
Primošten is a picturesque fishermen town located on a small peninsula. Enjoy the charming views of the town while sailing around the peninsula.

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.
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 basement 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 its waterfront is full of good places to shop, eat or have a drink.
