Sailing route Šibenik – Kornati island tour
Plunge deep into the Kornati National Park and explore the Šibenik archipelago
One week sailing itinerary from Šibenik to the Kornati islands
Šibenik is a stunning city to start your week-long round sailing holiday to visit the Kornati islands. It is quieter than the likes of Split and Dubrovnik, yet it is easily reached from the airports of Split or Zadar. The old town winds up the hill to the medieval fortress of Saint Michael, where you can enjoy unrivaled views over the Šibenik archipelago.
You will start your sailing route from Šibenik by sailing out through the channel of St Anthony. This takes you past the UNESCO World Heritage site of the St. Nicolas fortress and out into the Šibenik archipelago to unwind from the stresses and strains of the mainland. In the days afterward, this sailing route plunges deep into the Kornati National Park with its breath-taking beauty. Navigating among the islands and reefs is a nautical paradise. You will then wind back down the coast and return to the Šibenik archipelago for one last night out in the islands before returning to base.
