Sailing Kornati National Park – by Catamaran Boat
Croatia and sailing go great together
Kornati sailing adventure is a tour designed for those who appreciate an active holiday with a dose of sailing luxury. Croatia is one of the most popular European destinations for sailing, and undoubtedly, Kornati Islands are its best part. In the coastal waters of Sibenik, there is an archipelago of 152 islands, 89 of which are part of the Kornati National Park. On this trip, we take advantage of locations accessible only by boat and enjoy the crystal clear waters and unearthly peaceful atmosphere far away from the crowds.
Sailing in Kornati Archipelago
While we sail we look for the most beautiful bays to anchor in. If you like being active, enjoy kayaking to hidden beaches and coves, or just stick by the boat snorkeling, SUP, and swimming. You will have plenty of leisure time aboard the catamaran, sailing and enjoying the sun and amazing scenery. Keep an eye out for friendly dolphins, tuna, and sea turtles which occasionally escort us while we sail. In the evenings we dock or anchor in quiet bays where we visit traditional taverns with exquisite local food. Local food is a big part of what this tour is about and our guides and skippers will be happy to guide you to the best and most authentic places. Croatia is alive with well-preserved old towns, castles, palaces, monuments, and native architecture. Together with the tradition, folklore, art scenes, and music, it is a unique and exotic place to discover.
