For help choosing a sailing route, we compiled this Guide to Sailing Croatia.

When a country has over 1,000 islands and one of the richest archipelagos in the world, don’t miss your chance to sail along the coast. I’d dare to say that a Croatian vacation without any sea action would be sacrilege – even you can only spare a day.

You can combine the best of Croatia – both sea & land, by spending your time sailing the Adriatic Coast, making stops along your tour to explore the mainland.

Four parks are best reached from a base in Zadar, and private transfer companies can arrange transport for much less than you think.

Not far from the Dalmatian port city of Split, you can take a day trip to the Krka National Park.

One of our favorite day trips in Zadar is cruising around the Kornati Island National Park, add it to your list.

Motovun Istria When you think of Croatia, you’ll be forgiven if you only think of beaches along the 1,000 out-of-this-world Islands of Croatia.

Spend a day or maybe weeks mesmerized by the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea as you sail the many Islands of Croatia (we love Korcula Island) or, perhaps you’d like to hike, cycle or raft along one of the eight stunning national parks? Creating a list of must see places in Croatia has almost no end.

Before making the trip make sure you have all the essential travel necessities to make your Croatia vacation that much more comfortable.

Relax by the Sea Organ, day or night and enjoy the sound of the waves creating music, as they push air through 35 underwater pipes.

After enjoying all that Zadar, has to offer, stay a few extra nights and make use of the convenient location to take day trips to the national parks and to sail along the Adriatic Coast.

One of the best things to do in Croatia is to visit the historic old towns.
