- Rogoznica Rogoznica is a charming and well protected harbour, marina and anchorage on what can be a very windy stretch of coastline.

- Trogir Trogir is not to be missed. A beautiful medieval town crammed with renaissance and Romanesque architecture, Trogir, oozes with an understated sophistication that will charm even the most jaded cynic.

|4: Tue||9||A bay on Brac or Solta such as|
- Sesula (Solta) Sesula is a small narrow inlet at the west end of the island of Solta, just south of Maslinica. It’s a pretty spot and provides good shelter. It lacks a beach but you can swim off the boat. There’s a dive centre here where you can hire scuba gear.
Sesula is made more popular by its proximity to Split and ... Read more
|5: Wed||19||Free sailing. Why not try:|
- Primosten A small holiday town centred on an island now connected to the mainland by a causeway. The walls that once surrounded the old town have long gone, bar the gate through which one enters the main square.
The square provides an excellent place for various events through the summer but is a bit over restored for ... Read more
- Skradin / Krka River / Krk National Park It’s worth a visit to Skradin just to sail up the river, but once there, a trip in to the Krk National Park is a must. After mooring your yacht, a short ferry boat ride takes you to the park entrance from where you can walk up to the first of 7 waterfalls which total ... Read more
|7: Fri||28||Free sailing. I suggest:|
- Luka (Otok Vrgada) If you want to see what a Croatian fishing village looked like before the tourists came, Vrgada is probably pretty close.
Uvala Luka is the small harbour of this fishing community on this small one village island. The island is covered with pine trees and has several pebbled beaches.
Originally a fortress island (the ruins of the ... Read more
- Tisno / Tijesno (Murter) A village that manages to be both on an island and on the mainland, Tisno, previously Tijesno, lies astride the bridge that links Murter island to the rest of Croatia.
The bridge opens twice a day to allow yachts to pass (for half an hour at 09.00 and 17.00), with the quays and anchorage being, like ... Read more
|8: Sat||15||Free sailing. How about:|
- Telascica (Dugi Otok) Take a therapeutic swim in a salt lake, relax on the many beaches or explore the rich flora and fauna of this National Park. Only the most ardent urbanites will fail to love Telescica Bay.
The narrow but 4nm long inlet at the south end of Dugi Otok has around 25 smaller bays around its edges. ... Read more
- Piskera / Panitula Vela Piskera is a small uninhabited island in the Kornati archipelago, inside the National Park. The Kornati Park is the high spot of many Croatia yacht charters.
Bizarrely, Piskela Marina isn’t actually on Piskera but on the adjacent island of Panitula Vela. No matter, the latter is also a small uninhabited island so you won’t miss anything!
The ... Read more
- Zlarin Known as the Coral Island, Zlarin is a lush island near the mouth of the Krk river. The island is clad with pine and cypress forests, figs and olives. You can walk peacefully along the 20km of roads as cars are prohibited.
The red coral for which the island is famed is largely exhausted. However, there’s still ... Read more
- Zminjak Zminjak is a small island about a mile north of Murter. It’s uninhabited apart from the staff of the single restaurant. There’s no ferry service to the island so you need your own boat to get there!
It’s a pretty spot but you may be disturbed by the regular passage of other boats, though things quieten ... Read more
- Sali (Dugi Otic) Home of the world famous (?) annual donkey races, Sali was named for its salt production in medieval times.
Today, fishing, olives and holiday makers are the main earners though as the largest village (population under 2000) on the island of Dugi Otok, it also serves as its administrative centre.
If you fancy a swim, there’s a ... Read more
- Smokvica The island of Smokvica is a popular stopping off point for those heading north in to the Kornati National Park. There’s no ferry service so it’s lucky you have a yacht!
The large hill is worth a climb for the views from the top across the park.
There’s just one bay, Lojena, on the south side. It’s ... Read more
|13: Thu||13||Free sailing. Lots of options in the Kornati including|

There are several anchorages around the island and a marina at Pod Ražanj, but most charter yachts head for the ACI Marina at Luka Zut, a ... Read more
- Kaprije The small green island of Kaprije is named after the capers that once formed the mainstay of the economy. The island is car free so it’s wonderfully peaceful.
The population numbers only about 150. Most live in the only the only village, also called Kaprije. In addition to the capers, the island has relied on fishing, grape cultivation and olive ... Read more

The village nestles at the foot of the Rastovac, Križeva Glava and Glavica Hills. There is a small charter base offering flotillas, bareboat charters and learn to sail courses.
Traditional stone buildings surround the natural ... Read more
