Sailing route Šibenik
Kornati islands & back
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 is easily reached from the airports of Split or Zadar. The old town winds up the hill to medieval fortress of Saint Michael, where you can enjoy unrivalled views over the Šibenik archipelago.

Return to Šibenik
Sailing out through the channel of St Anthony, you will pass the UNESCO World Heritage site of the St. Nicolas fortress and head into the Šibenik archipelago to unwind from the stresses and strains of the mainland. In the days afterwards, this sailing route plunges deep into the Kornati National park with it’s 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.
Why not tag on a few days to enjoy everything Šibenik has to offer. You must visit the wonderful waterfalls in the nearby Krka National park!
