The archipelago of northern Dalmatia is one of most unavoidable areas that boaters simply have to visit, it is the area where the two national parks are located, the NP Kornati and the NP Krka, and the unavoidable Telasica Nature Park. The town of Zadar also has a developed nautical infrastructure, and with its central location on the Adriatic coast is the ideal starting point for your journey by sea in any direction. At a very short distance from Zadar, you will come across countless islands and bays. The most popular routes in this area include the islands of Olib, Silba, Premuda, Skarda, Ist, Molat, Dugi Otok with its wonderful sandy beach of Sakarun, and the Kornati and Telascica. In addition, we will not forget the islands of Sestrunj, Ugljan, Pasman, Rava, Iz.
The ideal starting place to begin this adventure are Zadar, Sukošan, and Biograd. Sibenik area, located between two national parks, is a paradise for boaters. Should choose only one route for sailing, then it would definitely be a route through the Kornati National Park, which is an archipelago of over 100 islands, islets and rocks. Be sure to visit the only sandy beach on Kornati, the Lojena beach on the island of Levrnaka, and experience the great gastronomic offer of the Kornati islands.
The beauty of the Kornati National Park is directly linked to the waterfalls of the river Krka, which is the National Park only a few hours of sailing from Kornati. An ideal place to start this adventure is Murter, with even 3 marinas in Murter, Betina, Jezera and marinas in Vodice and Tribunj. Murter is the closest starting point for the Kornati National Park. Do not miss sneaking into the mouth of the river Krka to Skradin, to experience from your vessel a touch of the inland Dalmatia.
