A Croatian sailboat
Mljet Island


    Kornati Islands

This nearly uninhabited archipelago in northern Dalmatia is only accessible by boat and offers a fascinating geomorphology, a greatly indented coastline and a rich diversity of marine life.

Although you can moor anywhere (in numerous bays and natural shelters), the main marina of the Kornati Islands is the ACI-marina Piskera (open April to October).

A trip through the Kornati Islands can be combined with a trip to other National Parks in Croatia along the coast, such as Mljet and Krka. Read more.

Southern Dalmatia

The cultural highlights and natural beauty of Dubrovnik, Hvar and Korcula make southern Dalmatia a great sailing itinerary. Some people prefer the southern coast , since the weather can be sunnier, warmer and more stable than in the north.

More experienced sailors seeking adventure can visit Palagruza, an island about 1300 meter long and 200 meters wide located in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, between the Italian and Croatian coast. It is the most remote Croatian island and is famous for its protruding lighthouse, built in 1850. Nowadays, the only inhabitants of the island are the lighthouse keepers. However, because of its isolated position, natural beauty and the rich fishing area of the surrounding sea, Palagruza is a unique tourist destination and has always attracted many fishermen and sailors.

From there you can even continue sailing towards Italy. In that case, don’t forget to moor at the beautiful Elaphiti Islands, most of which are only accessible by private boat.
