Zadar (Sukosan, Biograd)
Zadar is a busy town and harbour with a number of interesting museums and old buildings. There are excellent facilities for yachts at the marina, which is located in the new port. From Zadar you can visit Kornati islands, a group of islands, islets, rocks, reefs and shoals which lie within 11 miles of the mainland coast but run parallel to the main land. There are over a hundred islands and islets offering both adventure and safe moorage opportunities. With no permanent settlements on the islands with only few houses, beautiful islands are now designated as a National Park. This area is not really for beginners, although a previous flotilla holiday would be adequate experience.
