Šibenik Sailing Route – Croatia Sailing Itinerary
Sailing in Šibenik – Where to Go?
The best time to visit Šibenik is in the summer when the days are long and sunny. The city found its place in the middle of the Adriatic coast nearly one thousand years ago.
Today, it’s an important regional administrative, economic, and cultural center with two UNESCO-protected sites, Game of Thrones filming locations, and proximity to the marvelous Kornati Islands and Krka National Park.
The summers are warm and offer an opportunity for an active vacation. The Šibenik archipelago is perfect for an island-hopping adventure, which is exactly what you get in this sailing route.
Day 1: Šibenik – Zlarin
Your Šibenik sailing adventure starts when you arrive at the marina and complete the check-in procedure at 5 PM on Saturday. Then, depending on the weather conditions and sunset hours, you may spend the rest of the day in Šibenik or head to Zlarin Island.
Day 2: Zlarin – Kaprije
Enjoy the sunny hours on the island of Zlarin, which derives its name from the Latin word for gold. Zlarin is famous for its magnificent seabed full of corals. It’s a car-free and plastic-free island that offers complete sustainable relaxation.
Day 3: Kaprije – Žirje
Kaprije is a smaller Croatian island that offers a way to escape the crowds. There are no cars on the island, and it’s mostly uninhabited (population: around 200). Stone-built houses will surely take your breath away. There are about 20 bays where you can spend your day.
Day 4: Žirje – Kornati
If you want to spend some time on a remote island, Žirje is the one to visit. The island is getting noticed for its Robinson tourism and incredibly peaceful way of life and vacationing. The bays and restaurants on Žirje are popular with sailors.
Day 5: Kornati – Murter
The Kornati archipelago is a nautical paradise of more than a hundred large and small islands, the biggest being the island of Kornat. Kornati National Park is a protected area that ensures undisturbed progress of natural processes and sustainable use of resources. Watch the rich plant and animal life, go hiking, and have a meal in this special geological area. Check the ticket prices here.
Day 6: Murter – Prvić and Tijat
Murter was once a Roman Empire resort and a defensive spot in the Republic of Venice. Nowadays, the island is a peaceful sailing destination with several settlements that each have a distinct dialect. On your way back to Šibenik, feel free to stop at Prvić Island or Tijat Island, both great swimming spots.
Day 7: Back to Šibenik
Your week-long sailing in the Šibenik archipelago ends with a morning of swimming and eating Mediterranean breakfast. Wait for the check-out procedure that is scheduled for 9 AM with a cup of coffee. Make sure you take your belongings and new memories home with you. You may want to spend the day in Šibenik to cover everything listed on day one.
