Route from Šibenik to Vis and to Skradin (7 days) CROATIA
Šibenik – Kaprije (Kaprije)(approx. 14 NM)
Kaprije is the only village on the island. Near-port taverns will offer perfect, home-made-like and fresh specialties of the Mediterranean cuisine. The charm of the island in added by the St. Peter Church and its cemetery from which you can see the beautiful view of the bay. The stone buildings of the islands, no cars and openness of the natives make it a perfect place to halt during the cruise in Croatia. The well-protected against winds bay and a large number of buoys (those with a comfortable high lug) will have a place for you.
Kaprije – Vis (Vis)(approx. 50 NM)
Island Vis is a good choice for those who want to experience the life style and Mediterranean atmosphere, so unique today. The cultural and historic heritage, crystal clear sea, cosy beaches and many small bays make you feel like in heaven. The town of Vis is located in the north part of the island along the bautiful bay of St. Juraj. Many luxurious restaurants and traditional taverns in the heart of the city will captivate you local specialties and nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, the Vis port is poorly protected from wind.
You can also consider staying in Komiza (port and city) located at the Western coast of the island, in the North-Eastern part of the wide gulf. The port is protected from north-eastern winds, but exposed from the south west. Komiza is considered the birthplace of fishery. The majestic mountains should be highlighted at the bottom of which lies the city. The view you see when you approach the port from the sea in unspeakable – you must see it! You can also rent scooters in Komiza and explore the island on land, and the views that await you are breathtaking.
Vis – Maslinica (Solta)(approx. 20 NM)
Maslinica is the only village on island Solta situated on the west coast. The specific feature of this region is a mini archipelago of 7 islands that perfectly highlights the character of beautiful Croatia. The most popular place is Sesula bay, giving perfect protection against wind.
Maslinica – Trogir (approx. 10 NM)
Trogir is literally a city museum – it is considered the best preserved Romanesque and Gothic city in Central Europe. Specific narrow lanes will stay with you for long – you will easily feel the spirit of past times. In the evening, the city is vibrant – plenty of taverns, restaurants near to historic architecture. Trogir marina is situated approx. 10 minutes walking from the above-mentioned old town. You can halt at the city quay – the travel time will be counted in seconds ;).
Trogir – Primosten (approx. 22 NM)
There is a historic church from 1485 on the hill, in the centre of Primošten. The building is located near the local cemetery from which you can see the beautiful view of the sea and the surroundings. Big and wide beaches, pleasant stone buildings and local taverns and restaurants will allow you to taste beautiful Croatia. If there is no place at the quay, you can find many buoys in the bay – you can moor you boat to them.
Primosten – Skradin (approx. 25 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 – Šibenik (approx. 10 NM)
Don't treat Šibenik only as a place where you collect and return the yacht. Šibenik is a historic city with numerous monuments, the Cathedral of St. James included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage. Beautiful stone buildings, charming lanes and a fishing
harbour will stay with you for long. A large number of restaurants and taverns will treat you with extraordinary Mediterranean cuisine.
