The coast of Croatia has many points of interest and beautiful places to visit, with Zadar itself surrounded by no less than four major nature reserves, including the famous Kornati islands and the national park of Paklenica. These are ideal places to moor your yacht, catamaran, or motorboat and explore. Tubber has yachts for charter in Zadar’s marina, as well as the nearby Olive Island Marina and Preko marina.
- Zadar City: The city of Zadar is known as a city with various events, which makes it interesting for tourists. The most famous sights in Zadar are the Sea Organs and the Greetings to the Sun. The wind and the waves make a beautiful concert as they flow through the organs. The Greetings to the Sun is a floor of light that moves to the rhythm of the waves.
- Biograd: This town is surrounded by hundreds of islands and some beautiful national parks. If you are a diving fanatic, this is the place to be. The underwater world of Zadar is very varied thanks to the many islands and the extensive coastline. There are shipwrecks, lots of sea algae and even dolphins.
- Dugi Otok: The largest and westernmost island of the Zadar Islands. The West Coast is long and rugged. Many of the towns are located on the east side of the island.
- Ugljan: The most populous Croatian island. All villages are located on the east coast of the island.
- Galešnjak: A heart-shaped island, also called the island of love. The island has naturally grown, which is why it is so special.
- Pag: It is characterized by the world-famous cheese and the medieval city with several churches and archaeological ruins.
Cruising through the Kornati archipelago is without a doubt one of the best ways to enjoy your boating holiday. This famous natural park consists of no fewer than 109 different islands, 76 of which are smaller than a single hectare. The Kornati archipelago is known for its many wonderful rock formations. The islands are largely rocky and only 5% of the total area is cultivated. It goes without saying that this vast area is largely uninhabited. This makes the Kornati islands real gems of untouched natural beauty. Between the rugged rocky islands is also an exotic underwater paradise; the ideal location for snorkeling!
