Croatian and slovenian Adriatic
The Eastern Adriatic between Istria and Southern Dalmatia has superlative cruising grounds
In terms of nautical tourism in Europe, the Eastern Adriatic between Istria and Southern Dalmatia is absolutely perfect. Clear waters, beautiful islands, bays, the country and its people are all good reasons for spending an unforgettable holiday there.
Slovenia and Croatia are among Europe’s smaller countries. Their size is similar to that of Denmark, Ireland or Switzerland.
The situation is completely different, however, if you take a look at the coastline. Almost 5,900km long, the Slovenian and Croatian coasts clearly outshine the Spanish and French Mediterranean coasts (4,964km and 4,853km, respectively). Only Italy and Greece have longer coastlines at 7,600km and 13,676km, respectively.
Navigating and exploring the 5,900km coastline will take any skipper years of sailing. For there is more than just the approx. 1,800km coastline of the mainland: the 1,185 islands, rocks and reefs add up to a coastline of 4,058km.
It goes without saying that a coastline of such length boasts numerous bays, places to anchor, natural harbours and marinas where you will be sheltered, no matter how hard or whence the wind is blowing. And this is exactly what makes the cruising grounds so attractive.
Plus, top technical services are available at over 50 marinas. However, the marina operators have become aware that they have more to offer than parking sites for boats; they are places where people want to spend their holidays. As a result, many marinas have greatly expanded and improved the range of lifestyle products and services over the past years.
This is for the benefit of both long-term berth holders and charterers, whose numbers have been increasing steadily. Currently, some 3,900 boats are available for charter at the Croatian marinas (3,000 sailboats, 900 motorboats). There is no other European country whose statistics are equally impressive. Croatia is simply the best European country when it comes to nautical tourism.
Istrian highlights and Kvarner Bay: from Izola in Slovenia to Ilovik in Croatia
The special charm of two countries: from Izola in Slovenia to Ilovik, the Croatian flower island.
For many skippers, the western coast of Istria is merely a cruising ground you make your way through to get to the outstanding cruising grounds in Dalmatia.
It could be Venice
It’s a pity: while there are no major islands except for the Brijuni islands on this 50nm route, you will find several picturesque towns along the coast – often built on a tongue of land stretching into the sea and boasting belfries so strongly reminiscent of Venice that they create lasting visual impressions. It is pretty obvious that Istria was controlled by Venice for 400 years. If you want to soak up Venetian flair even if you are not in La Serenissima, the western coast of Istria is THE place to go.
Heading towards Kvarner Bay
Because the fierce Bora wind is more frequent and stronger in the Kvarner Bay than in the south of Croatia, many skippers navigate this region with awe. However, showing due respect for this cruising ground and carefully listening to the weather and wind forecasts, you will always find a way to avoid the Bora on your way to the magnificent islands in the Kvarner Bay.
Cres island as a barrier
On your way from the southernmost tip of Istria to the islands of Krk and Rab in the eastern part of the bay, you will see yourself blocked by the island of Cres: like a 35nm barrier, the island bisects the bay from north to south. To get to Krk and/or Rab, go north or south to navigate around Cres. If you could go there directly, it would be only 33nm between the southernmost tip of Istria (Cape Kamenjak) and Marina Punat on Krk. Navigating around to the north will take you 50nm. If you want to go to Rab, the situation is similar: 36nm if Cres were not in the way, 42nm when going south and approaching the island from the Osor canal.
Boasting 750 berths and a high level of technical services, Marina Izola in Slovenia (search no. SL130) is the ideal place to start your cruise in the Eastern Adriatic – whether you are chartering or towing your own boat. There are car and trailer parks as well as a 50t boat hoist. A hotel, swimming pool and casino offer lots of entertainment. The historic centre of Izola, located to the northeast of the marina on a former island, is worth visiting and only a 10-minute walk away.
Heading towards Croatia, you will pass the beautiful Slovenian town of Piran (search no. SL155). The belfry of the Sveti Jurij cathedral which is located on the northern edge of the historic centre built on a tongue of land is visible from afar. Lined by Venetian palaces and buildings, Tartini square at the harbour is a place in the historic centre worth visiting. Exit clearance can be obtained at the refurbished customs mole. Lucky if you can get an overnight berth here.
Heading to Croatia from the Northern Adriatic, you will definitely stop at this harbour. Umag (search no. HR115) is a major border harbour and port of entry. To deal with the entry paperwork (port authority, customs, police), proceed to the southern mole of the marina which is staffed between 1 April and 31 October or the customs pier located outside the historic centre in the south of the wide bay and staffed all year round. At a quayside berth in front of Hotel Kristal between the customs pier and the mole, you are very close to the bustling historic centre. On the opposite shore, ACI Marina Umag has everything your crew or boat may need.
This is the most precious of the Istrian pearls. On a tongue of land, the belfry of the Sveta Eufemia church towers over the hill where the multitude of old-town houses cascades down the gentle slopes towards the sea. As if to brave the water, the houses stretch as far as the shore. Numerous restaurants offer Istrian cuisine plus beautiful terraces with prime sea view. One of the most spectacular ones is the La Puntulina.
Berthing in ACI Marina Rovinj (search no. HR160) – located to the south of the town harbour and slightly hidden behind Sv. Katarina island – you will have a great view of the historic centre. Reopened in 2018, the marina offers 200 berths for boats up to 18m long.
Heading from Rovinj to Pula, you will pass the Brijuni islands, one of the few on this coast. Some areas are still off limits, and berthing in the only harbour, Veliki Brijun, is expensive at €207 per night for boats up to 14.99m long (last update: 2018).
With the Brijuni islands to your starboard side, south of the Rt. Proština lighthouse you approach the Pula bay which cuts some 3nm into the mainland. The town and ACI Marina (search no. HR180) are located on the south-eastern edge of the bay. When approaching, you will see the arena to the northeast of the marina, an amphitheatre built under Emperor Augustus in the first century AD to accommodate 26,000 spectators. It is the sixth biggest Roman amphitheatre worldwide. Do not miss it. The Temple of Augustus and Triumphal Arch of the Sergii are further Roman buildings in the historic centre worth visiting.
Gourmets should haul their boats to the Veruda bay south of Pula, berth in Marina Bunarina (search no. HR189) and enjoy a meal at the Ribarska Koliba.
Having passed the southernmost tip of Istria (Cape Kamenjak), in the Kvarner Bay we follow a true course of 56 degrees to the island of Cres, namely Cape Pernat, the north-eastern spit of land of the Valun bay. From the cape, we proceed another 3.5sm at an 84-degree true course to the Cres bay where the island’s capital, which is worth visiting, is located in the northeast and the 530-berth ACI Marina Cres (search no. HR280) on the south-eastern tip. The marina’s restaurant Mistral is among the four top-notch Mediterranean eateries.
The bay is surrounded by a fascinating landscape and more or less unspoilt nature. The island is a refuge for majestic griffon vultures. It’s definitely worth having a look upwards.
We steer around Cape Jablanac, the northernmost point of Cres, and at Cape Grota start to approach the island of Krk at a 150-degree true course. Along the coastline, we pass the popular anchorages of Torkul, Fuska and Sv. Juraj and finally Krk, the island’s capital, where two filling stations are available. Some 2nm further to the east, we reach the entrance to the ADAC nautical base Marina Punat (search no HR260). Located in an almost closed, well-sheltered bay on the eastern shore, the marina is without doubt the nautical hotspot in the Kvarn region. In addition to 900 wet and 500 dry berths, the marina boasts a high level of technical boat services and excellent tourist facilities.
The historic centre of the capital of the island of Rab is a picture-perfect destination. In Gornja ulica, the carfree main street in the upper part of the historic town centre, you will find the belfries of no fewer than five churches in a row. Taking a stroll from south to north, you will pass St. Mary’s, St. Andrew’s, St. Justina’s, Holy Cross and St. John’s.
The door of the Romanesque belfry of the St. John’s church is always open. Visitors who do not mind climbing the narrow wooden stairs will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view of Rab: the historic centre built on a tongue of land, the belfries, the blue water of the Adriatic. A panorama that will stay etched in your memory. For a great ‘broadside’ view of the historic centre, you can also go to ACI Marina (search no. HR310) which is located opposite the historic town centre on the eastern shore of the harbour bay.
If you want to avoid the peak-season crowds in the historic town centre, haul your boat to the Barbat canal. In the district of Barbat, approx. 1nm south of the crowds, lean back and relax on the pier and enjoy great food at the Aco or Leut.
A canal cutting through an island comes in very handy. For instance, the Privlaka canal dividing the island of Lošinj shortens the trip from Rab to Mali Lošinj by 11nm, reducing the total from 30 to 19nm. The canal bridge is only 2m high and opens at 09:00 and 18:00hrs. Water depth in the canal is 2.2m. Conditions can be dangerous in Bora winds!
From the sea, the canal leads to the sprawling harbour bay of Mali Lošinj, a very beautiful town on the southern tip of the bay. For a berth outside of town, go to a marina to the north or south of the canal (search no. HR295/HR325). Berthing in the Mali Lošinj town harbour, you are right in the historic centre, which is why berths here are very popular. The sanitary facilities are small and expensive. Nevertheless, in the peak season, the harbour tends to be crowded. Heading south along the western coast of Lošinj to Ilovik, you pass the beautiful bays of Krivica and Balvanida. In both of them, you can moor your boat to licensed buoys to completely unwind and simply drift along. The Balvanida restaurant is just within walking distance.
In the canal between the islands of Ilovik and Sv. Petar near the small town of Ilovik, you can moor your boat to one of the moles (approx. 60 moorings), 80 licensed buoys or four pontoons (search no. HR323). There is no marina, and the level of service is very low. Water and electricity are only available at the main mole. Nevertheless, Ilovik is extremely popular because it showcases a lush subtropical vegetation, which is why it is also known as the flower island. From atop the 92m mount Dida, you have a great view of the canal and surrounding islands.
Info on the cruise:
With nine (stopover) destinations, the cruise is 180nm long – one way. Stopping at all destinations makes a 10-day holiday. In terms of navigation, the cruise is quite easy. To cross the Kvarner Bay from Pula to Cres (40nm), wait for stable weather; do not sail when Bora winds are expected to hit the region.
Krka and Kornati islands: Northern Dalmatian coast and islands
The Northern Dalmatian coast and islands
from Zadar to Šibenik boast beautiful cruising grounds for magnificent cruises.
Northern Dalmatia has many cities and towns worth visiting such as Zadar, Biograd, Tribunj, Vodice and Šibenik on the mainland coast and several offshore islands stretching from Dugi Otok and Ugljan in the northwest to Pašman and Kornat to Murter to the Šibenik archipelago in the southwest. It is a cruising ground with a confusing number of small and mid-sized islands where you can make a multitude of different cruises and where – depending on the wind and weather conditions – the nearest safe harbour or bay will only be a few miles away.
One of the highlights on the coast is the historic centre of Zadar which is located on a peninsula and exudes the atmosphere of an open-air museum: Roman remains and Medieval walls and gates on the one hand and modern art on the other, such as the Sea Organ art installation and Greeting to the Sun monument at the north-western tip of the historic centre. Šibenik, too, is known for its historic centre and the St. James’ cathedral from the first century, a UNESCO world heritage site.
Oases in the sea
While the towns on the mainland coast boast state-of-the-art marinas, there is only a handful of marinas on the islands. However, there you will find beautiful anchorages and unpretentious fishing harbours which have been adapted to suit the needs of leisure boaters in the past years.
It is no longer a secret that the Kornati islands and their capital, Kornat, are a special highlight of the Croatian territorial waters. The 89 islands and reefs of the archipelago are part of the Kornati National Park which charges an entrance fee.
While the fee has increased steadily, the Kornati continue to be very popular among skippers. In 2017, 17,000 boats were moored to visit the national park. And for a good reason: in almost 40 bays with landing stages – some simple, some solid – the Kurnatari landowners have redeveloped the land of their ancestors with restaurants ranging from no-frills to glamorous, also known as konobas.
These oases in the sea, surrounded by crystal clear water, are a unique nautical paradise in Europe.
5nm south of the historic centre of Zadar, Sukošan is the home of Marina Dalmacija (search no. HR350). With 1,200 berths, it is the largest marina in the Eastern Adriatic and the most important nautical tourism centre in Northern Dalmatia, offering a wide range of services and products your crew or boat may need. Whether you are towing your own boat or charter, this is a good place to start your cruise because Zadar international airport is only a few kilometres from Sukošan. Marina Zadar (search no. HR345), which is closely located to the historic centre of Zadar, is only 6nm away.
Lying parallel to the mainland coast, the islands of Pašman and Ugljan form a natural barrier when you proceed in a south-westerly direction to the islands of Iž and Dugi Otok. But there is a small gap between Ugljan und Pašman, the Ždrelac passage: from Marina Dalmacija, follow a 223-degree true course for some 2nm. Having passed the island of Karatunić at the south-western exit of the passage, the capital of Iž, Veli Iž, is some 6nm away (true course: 298°). The 45-berth marina (search no. HR360) is a beautiful and stark contrast to Dalmacija. The town and island are perfectly calm. At the small craft harbour near the church, the konoba Mandrać serves very fine grilled steaks. Just 1nm south of the marina, the island of Knežak off the town of Knež forms a lagoon where you can moor your boat at one of the buoys at a charge (search no. HR373/HR374). A good place to chill, enjoy delicious food and dream.
Telašćica Natural Park
On the southern tip of Dugi Otok, the almost 4nm bay of Telašćica cuts into the long island. Despite an approx. €30 charge for an 11m boat, this natural park is very popular among skippers. So, your dream of mooring in a lonesome bay will not come true. Nevertheless, the natural park is a must-see attraction for any crew cruising in the waters of Northern Dalmatia. Steer clear of some of the bays (e.g. Mir) as long as the tour boats bring people for a swim. In the late afternoon, when they are gone, all there is left are the boats swinging at anchor. Our tip: the bay of Magrovica at the northernmost point of Telašćica, well concealed by the two islands of Skolj. It is perfectly sheltered.
Kornati National Park
Skippers are unaware that at the southern exit of the Telašćica bay, at the Vela Proversa strait, the natural park ends and the Kornati National Park starts. As said above, be prepared to pay another fee, but it is a worthwhile investment buying access to a unique cruising ground. In crazy weather, berthing is safe at ACI Marina Piškera (search no. HR405) on the Panitula peninsula. Otherwise, you can choose from among the almost 40 bays with rustic restaurants (konobas). On Kornat, the fisherman Ante and founder of the Ante konoba caused the Kornati to rise in popularity among skippers in the mid 1990s. He died in 2007. His son Jure took over the management of the konoba. To commemorate the popular fisherman, leisure boaters call mount Vrujsko, which rises 89m into the sky on the southern shore of the Vrulje bay, Mc Ante. From atop, you have a breathtaking view across the Kornati.
Near Opat, we steer around the southern tip of Kornat and at a 36-degree true course, proceed some 7nm to the northern tip of the island of Murter. Offshore islands, reefs and shoals make the entry to the bay which is home to the island’s capital, Murter, a bit tricky. Taking a close look at your nautical chart and/or plotter, you will not have a problem avoiding these obstacles.
Marina Hramina (search no. HR438) is the right place to go for technical services or fuel. As you enter, it is located to port on the north-eastern shore of the bay. If you want to indulge yourself with good food, moor your boat at the southern shore of the bay at the jetties of the Fabro or Tic Tac konobas. Another fine dining restaurant is the Fine Food Murter in the town centre.
Heading southeast, we pass the multitude of islands of the Šibenik archipelago and approach the mouth of the river Krka. It is 15nm from Murter via Tisno. The bascule bridge in Tisno operates between May and September. When it is down, clearance is 1.5m. Mind the tidal currents in this strait. Your boat may shift by up to several metres.
To the north of the mighty castle, the Sv. Ante canal leads to the lower reaches of the river Krka. Šibenik lies straight ahead; south of it, you can moor your boat at the glamorous Marina Mandalina (search no. HR450). For sightseeing purposes, you can go to the municipal pier a little south of St. James’ cathedral.
A place every tourist wants to see are the Krka waterfalls, which you will reach by going 9nm through the breathtaking river canyon to Skradin. Access to the Krka National Park and its seven waterfalls is no longer possible by private boat. So take a taxi boat or walk from Skradin. This highlight will bring a perfect end to your cruise.
Info on the cruise:
Six (stopover) destinations, 90nm – one way: short legs and lots of time to explore. The bridge in the Ždrelac passage has a clearance of 16.5m. The bascule bridge in Tisno (Murter) opens at 09:00 and 17:00hrs. At low tide, draught to the east of the bridge is only 1.70m. Currents can reach a speed of up to 5kn and come from different directions. Speed is limited on the river Krka: Sv. Ante canal 10kn, Šibenik approach 5kn, between Šibenik and Skradin 6kn.
The Deep South: the big Central and Southern Dalmatian islands
The big Central and Southern Dalmatian islands between Trogir and Dubrovnik are typical for the coast of Southern Croatia.
As the crow flies, there are almost 180km between Trogir and Dubrovnik. This equals more or less 100nm. But: five big islands and a long peninsula make it impossible to go directly. It is quite common for boaters to steer clear or around them or to even go back. And this is exactly what makes this cruising ground so stunningly attractive.
Cruising between the islands
Naturally, looking on a map, you will see that there are many options to explore this region. We recommend that you do not plan ahead but go by the wind and weather. For instance, it makes little sense to cruise near the northern coast of Brač or Hvar in Bora winds. Cruising near the southern coast of Korčula in Jugo winds is an equally bad decision. Tip: take the weather (forecast) into account when planning your daily cruises, and do not mind taking a detour by going to the coast that is less exposed to the wind. However, it is good to know that in the summer, the Bora usually blows on two days per month on average.
We set out at the state-of-the-art Marina Baotić (search no. HR484) in Seget Donji, less than 1nm to the west of the historic centre of Trogir, which is worth seeing. Split airport is an eight-minute drive away. The marina has everything charterers and those who tow their own boats may need. The fascinating historic centre of Trogir is a must-see attraction. Berth your boat at the town’s pier or opposite at ACI Marina Trogir (search no. HR485).
Next, we approach Maslinica on Šolta’s western coast, which was competently transformed from a fishing harbour to a beautiful pleasure craft marina (search no. HR508). On the southern shore of the sheltered harbour bay, a former palace was converted into the Martinis Marchi luxury hotel.
It boasts a fine dining restaurant. If you find the harbour too crowded, go 1nm south to the bay of Šešula to anchor.
While the island is big, there is only one town where you can find a marina: Milna. There are no less than three of them: Marina Vlaška (search no. HR519) on the northern shore at the entrance to the bay, Nautički Centar Milna (search no. HR524) on the southern shore to the east of the filling station and ACI Marina Milna (search no. HR520) right next to it.
Milna’s main attraction are the magnificent two-storey buildings, which are made of Brač stone and were built by the ship owners and captains who lived on the island in the 18th and 19th centuries. Depending on the position of the sun, visitors will be taken in by the riot of colours on the actually white walls of the magnificent palaces.
Sv. Klement and Hvar
Heading south, we approach the western tip of Hvar, steer around Cape Pelegrin and follow a 142-degree true course to the bay of Palmižana on the island of Sv. Klement. Having passed the well-visible isolated danger mark and the green navigation light on the western shore of the bay, you will have a view of the concealed ACI Marina Palmižana (search no. HR540). It is a superb natural harbour.
Climbing the hill to the south of the marina in the direction of the bay of Vinogradišće, you will get to an arboretum where you can dine at the Palmižana Meneghello amidst exotic plants. From the terrace, you can enjoy the view across the bay of Vinogradišće in the south, where mooring buoys are available at a charge.
The island’s trendy capital Hvar is a must-see attraction. However, do not bring you own boat. Berths in the harbour are scarce and usually gone by noon, and swell height inside the harbour always reaches uncomfortable levels. Use one of the taxi boats at Marina Palmižana which, by arrangement, commute between the marina and Hvar almost around the clock.
Palmižana and Korčula, the eponymous island’s principal town, are 35nm apart. Do not miss the historic centre of Korčula with its stunning towers and walls. Built on an oval-shaped peninsula, the town is surrounded by water. One of Croatia’s most beautiful towns, it is often referred to as the little Dubrovnik, and rightly so. However, beauty comes at a price. Ever since the cruise lines discovered Korčula as a destination, the narrow lanes have been overcrowded with tourists. ACI Marina (search no. HR550) is only 300m from the south entrance to the historic centre away.
Pomena and Polače are two bays located one on the western and the other on the north-western coast of the island of Mljet. From either of them, you have access to the Mljet National Park in the western part of the islands with its lush Aleppo pine, oak and holm oak forests. The national park is world famous for two salt lakes (Veliko and Malo Jezero) which are a geological phenomenon. To go to the monastery on the Sveta Marija islet, take the tour boat that leaves hourly. It goes without saying that both bays are very popular among skippers – also because of the numerous restaurants. The lesser-known bay of Okuklje located on the northern coast a short distance to the east of the town of Prožura is a bit more peaceful. It is perfectly sheltered and boasts moorings with water and electricity at the restaurants.
We warmly recommend the Maran (as you enter, the second mooring field to starboard).
A small but worthwhile detour from the crowded yachting route to and from Dubrovnik and much quieter is the Stonski canal, which is formed by the south-eastern spur of the peninsula of Pelješac and the mainland. The canal entrance is located to the west of the island of Olipa and only 4.5nm from Okuklje. Head towards Ston for another 3nm before berthing near the bay of Kobaš on the northern shore of Pelješac. This spot with Luka’s Taverna used to be an insider’s tip for quite some time but has become popular among skippers: now there are two konobas (Luka’s and the Fisherman’s House) and the Gastro Mare luxurious restaurant.
Kobaš is the ideal starting point for a visit to Ston which is only 3nm away. The town’s harbour facilities were expanded and moorings are available at a landing stage. The water level in the canal varies and draught may be no more than 2m. If this is too low for your yacht, go by dinghi from Kobaš. A walk on the historic ramparts will be a great experience. And do take a short hike across the mountain to Mali Ston. There you can enjoy the local speciality: oysters from the Mali Ston bay. One of the top restaurants at the harbour is the Kapetanova kuca.
Dubrovnik is without doubt the most beautiful city in Croatia. A walk along the completely intact town wall or stroll along Stradun at night – they will make lasting impressions. And where can you leave your boat? Either out of town but in peace at ACI Marina Dubrovnik (search no. HR580) on the river Dubrovačka or near town but less peaceful in the new Marina Frapa Dubrovnik (search no. HR600) on the southern shore of the Gruž harbour bay.
Info on the cruise:
Seven daily cruises and 135nm – this one-week trip is all about relaxation. In terms of navigation, the cruise is easy. The speed limit on the northern coast of Korčula, between Rt Kneže and 17°12’ E (Pelješki canal), is 12kn and on the eastern coast, between the historic centre and Lumbarda, 4kn.
Wind & weather: Bora, Jugo, Mistral, etc
The Slovenian and Croatian Adriatic coastlines have the Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers. Average temperatures range between 26 and 30°C in the summer and between 5 and 10°C in the winter. While the summer months are usually sunny with light breezes, stronger winds can occur occasionally.
The Bora is a cold, dry, fresh to gusty wind from the northeast. It occurs when atmospheric pressure is high, and it blows down on the water from the mountains on the mainland as a strong, gusty wind. Rule: in Bora winds, bays at the foot of the mountains are dangerous and do not provide any shelter. Winds can reach hurricane force!
The Jugo is a humid, warm wind from the southeast to south-south-east. In the Northern Adriatic, it usually occurs between March and June, and in the Southern Adriatic between October and late January. Long periods of Jugo cause heavy swell. Rule: Jugo winds are easy to forecast and reach gale force slowly, skippers usually have enough time to get their crews and boats to safety.
The Mistral is the typical summer wind in the Eastern Adriatic. It blows during daytime in high atmospheric pressure and good weather and originates from the northwest. It usually reaches a maximum of 5Bf and eases off completely at sunset. There is slight to moderate movement of the sea.
