Route from Biograd to Zadar and to Skradin (7 days) CROATIA
Biograd – Zadar (approx. 17 NM)
Zadaris a city of 3000 years of history and unique cultural heritage. It is situated in the heart of the Adriatic – across the centuries as well as today, this city combines everything what a traveller needs. There are many modern architectural structures in the city, like the first in the world sea organs and the Greeting to the Sun installation. The sea organs are located on the coast, and their sound is generated by the motion of sea waves. Greeting to the Sun is an installation consisting of multiple layers of glass gerenating breathtaking light effects.
Zadar – Bozava (Dugi otok) (approx. 20 NM)
Bozava is a fishermen village on the south east coast of island Dugi Otok, which is a famous diving centre. The location in the valley, at a small bay, is conducive to water sports: windsurfing, sailing between the local islets of the archipelago. It is worth to explore the entire island, with the picturesque cliffed quay and several interesting churches. This is a perfect place for people who like the contact with nature, long walks and riding a bike, as planes are rather rare here.
Bozava – Telascica (Dugi otok) (approx. 27 NM)
Telascica is a deep and beautiful bay in the south part of Dugi Otok, one of the biggest ones on the Adriatic. It depth is 10 km, and width is 160–1800 m. It has several pretty, long sandy beaches. There is a Nature Park of the same name located in the bay. The Telascica park, thanks to its setting, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and picturesque corners of the Adriatic.
Telascica – Zlarin (approx. 37 NM)
Zlarin is the third largest and one of siz inhabited islands of the Šibenik archipelago. Its population is less than 300 people, but during holidays, it grows up to 2000. The potential of island is the untouched underwater flora and fauna and the virgin nature of the island itself. A perfect place for divers. It is often regarded as a piece of heaven on earth, because the most beautiful sunset in the world can be seen here. The island is an oasis of peace and quiet, and the only motor vehicles are yachts and boats.
Zlarin – Skradin (approx. 13 NM)
Skradin – the destination place of tourist pilgrims, mainly ue to the famous waterfalls in the nearby Krka National Park. If I would indicate the most recommended places in Croatia, the above-mentioned waterfalls would be in the top three locations, but they cannot be described – you must see them! A cruise ship sets off from Skradin every hour, which will take you to the park (for the waterfalls). The ship itself is for free, you buy the park and museum tickets after you get out of it. On your way back, you can rent bicycles you will return in Skradi – excercises are good during holidays on a yacht ;). If you want to avoid crowds, we recommend sailing to Skradin n the evening, and set off for the excursion on the first morning ship.
Skradin – Vrgada (approx. 35 NM)
Vrgada is a small island of the Šibenik archipelago between islands Pašman and Murter. The area is partially covered with woods, especially in the north east. The south west coast in steep, and the north east coast in moderately tilted with bays and sandy beaches.
The small port of Vrgada is protected by a breaker, where boats can moor to the shore only in the foremost part of the island. The maximum depth is 2.5 m. You can find several smaller jetties in the port, but it is to shallow for yachts. We must be careful at the entrance to the St. Andrija bay to avoid sailing onto shoals on the northern and the southern sides of the bay.
Vrgada – Biograd (approx. 7 NM)
Don't treat Biograd only as a place where you collect and return the yacht. Local taverns and restaurants will treat you with beautiful Mediterranean cuisine, and if you want to rest from the city we encourage you to take long walks between charming, narrow lanes, where you will feel the spirit of true Croatia (without the tourists). It's a perfect place to say goodbye to this beautiful country – until next year :).
