Combination of Culture and Nature
Total sailing distance 150-160 NM
Day 1: Split (Nava marina) – Maslinica (15 NM) or Drvenik (16 NM)
Maslinica - island of Solta; this small village with one of the most breathtaking sunsets is located on the west side of Solta. Archipelago of seven small islands (Polebrnjak, Saskinja, Stipanska, Kamik, Balkun, Sarac and Grmej) is just one of many things that make Maslinica one of the most beautiful places on the Adriatic coast. Restoration of the castle into a hotel and the construction of a nautical marina are turning this village little by little into the tourist center of the island that greets more and more guests each year. Apart from Maslinica, the boaters find the neighbouring bay, Sesula, with its safe anchorage and unique gastronomical experience very attractive. During the year, Maslinica has about 200 permanent residents, but during the summer the number grows, and its accommodation’s capacity is about 400 guests.
Recommended restaurants: Sakajet, Martinis Marchi

Bay Sesula; anchor can be dropped in the middle of the bay at a depth of 8 metres. Since the bottom does not hold anchor firmly enough, it is necessary to additionally tie the stern to the mainland with ropes.
Day 2: Maslinica or Drvenik (5 NM) – Sibenik (30 NM) / Skradin (32 NM)
Skradin - Krka waterfalls - Skradin
is simply magical in its each and every detail.
In the loud morning silence that gets under your skin and the stentorian traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart. In the peace and quiet of the Visovac monastery and the burst of water drops of the Skradinski Buk waterfall.
In each moment of enjoyment of food which has skilfully managed to escape both fridges and freezers which would rob it of its natural aromas and has arrived thoroughly fresh at your table.
Such is Skradin, small, picturesque and filled with flavour, found at a point where the river passionately embraces the sea.
Such is Skradin, at the border of reality and fantasy.
Such is Skradin, perfect, both in past and present.
