Area information



Bay of Kvarner


The Bay of Kvarner lies between Istria and the Croatian mainland. The best-known islands include Krk, Pag, Cres, Lošinj, Rab, Susak and Ilovik. But the many other islands also offer beautiful anchorages and harbours. Ports of departure are, for example, Zadar or Sukosan or, coming from the north, Pula. These ports can be reached by flight to Zadar/Pula. Arriving by car or long-distance coach is also possible. As special destinations I recommend wreck diving in the north of Dugi Otok, Ilovik and Mali Losinj. In the picturesque harbour of Veli Losinj, there is unfortunately only very limited mooring space for large yachts. But a short excursion is worthwhile.

Example routes:

  • Route 1: start port e.g. Zadar - Veli Rat (wreck) - Ilovik - Mali Losinj - Silba - Molat - Zadar
  • Route 2: start port e.g. Pula - Unije - Mali Losinj - Silba - Susak - Medulin - Pula


North Dalmatia


With the sub-regions of Zadar and Sibenik, the region of Northern Dalmatia stretches from Starigrad to Primosten. Countless small and large islands offer short sailing distances and many bays and harbours. Large islands include Molat, Dugi Otok, Ugljan, Pasman, Murter and the Kornati islands. Typical ports of departure are, for example, Sukosan, Biograd na moru or Sibenik. Apart from by car, you can also travel to Zadar by long-distance bus or plane from Germany. There are a variety of routes from the starting ports. My personal highlights are wreck diving in the north of Dugi Otok, the Telascica National Park, the Kornati Islands and the trip along the Krka River near Sibenik to Skradin. From there you can visit the Krka waterfalls.

Example routes:

  • Route 1: start port e.g. Biograd - Landin (Pasman) - Telascica Nationalpark - Vela Rava - Pantera Bucht (Dugi Otok, wreck) -Veli Iz - Biograd
  • Route 2: start port e.g. Biograd - Landin (Pasman) - Telascica national park - Vrulje (Kornati islands) - Zirje - Murter - Biograd
  • Route 3: start port e.g. Biograd - Kakan - Primostem - Sibenik (Krka) - Skradin (waterfalls) - Murter - Biograd
Central Dalmatia

The region of Central Dalmatia includes the large islands of Ciovo, Brac, Hvar and Vis and extends on the mainland from Marina to Gradac. Arrival by plane is at Split international airport. Typical departure ports are Trogir, Kastella and Split, which can be reached by taxi or bus from the airport within about 30min. Long-distance buses are also available from Germany. The offshore islands are ideal for sailing trips. I recommend the "Blue Lagoon", the old town of Trogir, the "Blue Grotto" on Vis and of course Hvar Town as highlights. If you want to sail longer, you can also sail to Korcula, which is considered by Croatian connoisseurs to be a little Dubrovnik..

Example routes:

  • Route 1: start port e.g. Trogir - Milna - Stari Grad (Hvar) - Hvar - Komiza (Vis)/ Blue Grotto - Maslinica (Solta) - Trogir
  • Route 2: start port e.g. Trogir - Hvar - Bol (Brac) - Makarska - Pucisca (Brac) - Omis (ZipLine Croatia) - Trogir
  • Route 3: start port e.g. Trogir - Duga Bay (Ciovo)/Blue Lagoon - Primosten - Maslinica - Hvar - Rogac (Solta) - Trogir
