Your Sailing Area
Offering a quieter but equally as beautiful side to the Mediterranean that so far seems little touched by the booming tourist trade, exploring the coast and islands of Croatia is certainly best done by boat. From ancient harbour cities shrouded in impressively thick old town walls, to spectacular bays for remote anchorages in crystal clears waters and fair winds, sailing in Croatia has something for everyone. With easy access from UK airports, you can fly from London and be relaxing on board in as little as 4 hours. This sailing adventure on Kairos is perfect for those looking for a little escapism, relaxation and new experiences, stunning landscapes and 5* service onboard!
As with all our sailing holidays, the itinerary cannot be guaranteed and will depend on the weather but will see you exploring the magnificent coastline of the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian coastal towns and islands of Rogoznica, Šibenik, Skradin and Dugi Otok.
Rogoznica is a traditional Croatian seaside village where you will be greeted from the water with quaint whitewashed and red clay roofed buildings lining the harbour front. Its well-protected harbour makes a safe haven for sailors and with its bountiful pebbly beaches and tranquil streets, it’s known for its peaceful nature and remains relatively untouched by the tourist trade.
Onto Šibenik, also known as a gateway to the Kornati Islands. Sailing through the Kanal Luka has to be the most impressive way to arrive at this waterside city. The city stretches along the estuary of the Krka river and St Anthony Channel with the Sibenik archipelago lining the horizon. Grand white buildings line the seafront and the city lies in a labyrinth of steep alleys, graceful squares and winding stone streets leading to hilltop fortresses. Oozing with history, this stop is definitely for the culture buffs than the beach lovers. From the 15th-century stone Cathedral of St. James to the 14th-century Prince’s Palace and the open-air theatre of St. Michael’s Fortress, with some 24 churches, six monasteries and four fortresses, there is plenty to explore.
Skradin is a small town tucked in a natural bay behind Šibenik entirely protected as a cultural heritage monument. Narrow cobbled streets, medieval archways and meandering streets make up this romantic Mediterranean town which dates back some 2000 years. Also marking the entrance to the Krka National Park that cover 73km of the Krka River. A magical place full of waterfalls and gorges, with the river running through a 200m deep limestone canyon.
Dugi Otok also known as “Long Island” is one of the largest islands in the Adriatic Sea. With a lost-in-time feel, there is plenty of untouched natural beauty to explore and enjoy. The southeastern coast is marked by steep hills and cliffs, while the northern half is cultivated with vineyards, orchards and pastures.
