Sibenik, the North-Dalmatian paradise, is one of the preferred cities among yacht owners. It is also an ideal starting-off point to explore the region. Wherever we drop our anchor, there are cosy bays and beaches welcoming us. Regarding culinary experiences, Sibenik is rich in restaurants offering many local specialities and their famous red Babic wine. Compared to other Adriatic medieval cities Sibenik is unique because it was not built directly by the coast, but by the banks of the Krka River. Basically, we are swimming here in a river.

There are other small islands accessible by boat near Sibenik where the coastline is also marvellous. If you prefer tranquil beaches, choose the sandy Zlarin with its picturesque pine forest and spacious port. It’s not surprising, I reckon, that there are fishing villages preserving their old traditional atmosphere like Prvic. On the island of Murter, the beach has a unique shape as a white tongue stretched into the sea on the south-western part. The most popular resort is in Slanica Bay. Kornati islands are the largest and densest island group of the Adriatic. The Kornati National Park occupies its biggest part. It gained its reputation for its stunning white limestone formations erupting like magic from the contrasting blues of the Adriatic Sea and the sky.
