Zadar Archipelago

The Zadar region has the most beautiful sunset in the world, at least Alfred Hitchcock said so. Whether it’s true or not, the picture of the sun gently setting in the Adriatic Sea is an awe-inspiring, poetic sight to see. With the intense blue of sea, the lush deep greens of pine and olive groves and the pure white of Dalmatia stone, the region’s colour palette is some of the most extraordinary and unique in the world. Known for its unique mixture of Roman and Venetian ruins in the Old Town, Zadar is also one of the coolest cities in Croatia with it’s vibrant lifestyle. With a fantastic food scene the Zadar region offers a rich fusion of cuisine from Dalmatian to Italian and international taste and seafood is the real specialty.

Kornati Islands

The greatest fans of the Kornati islands are those travelling by yacht who find there what they seek the most: a sunny labyrinth of sea and islands, and the peace of untouched nature. Here, the saying ‘an island for each day of the year’ really does apply, and of the hundreds of strikingly beautiful isles. The archipelago has two national parks waiting to be discovered and the islands are full of countless paradisaical beaches where you can get lost, discover charming small towns and enjoy the exquisite Croatian cuisine. Stunning isolated bays to enjoy quiet nights at anchor, hidden restaurants serving some of the best food in the Med and a few vibrant mainland towns wait to be explored.

Sibenik Archipelago

Set amid the wild beauty of white rock and the azure sea, the Šibenik aquatorium is a yachting paradise of 240 isles and reefs. Six major inhabited islands, unmissable fortress coastal towns steeped in history and culture and one of the most significant treasures and attractions of Croatia, the National Park Krka await. A lush landscape of olive groves and vineyards, UNESCO heritage sites and locations from ‘Game of Thrones’ the area is dotted with typical Dalmatian fishing villages and fringed with quiet little beaches. In an oasis of peace and tranquillity, the spirit of the Mediterranean devours the islands surrounded by the crystal clear, relaxing and enchanting Adriatic sea.
