Rocky beaches of Croatia – Koromašna, Murter

For most of us locals, rocky beaches are the best. Flat rocky beaches, that is. Sand is fun for kids but not when you get past your teens. We only look for a nice, flat piece of rock by the sea and that’s it. Luckily, there are numerous great rocky beaches all over the coast. Quite popular…

Winter sunset walk in Modrave

Modrave is one of the last untouched areas of our coastline. Hopefully, it will stay that way as it should be protected from the devastation that destroyed most of our coastline. This beautiful stretch starts after Drage and continues to Prosika just before Pirovac, central Adriatic. Vransko lake is behind it (in the old days…

Kornati – winter cruise

December is usually nice. But rarely nice as this year. Sunny, no wind, temperatures almost reaching 18 degrees… Perfect for enjoying beautiful outdoors! So, yesterday, we wanted to test our speed boat and see what is going on on Kornati. I haven’t been there in years and really wanted to experience them in the winter…

Murtar cove

Dalmatian coast is full of hidden little coves that managed to escape main roads, apartment buildings, nearly any construction… Many of them are located on the coast but much more on the islands.  Murter Island had that (mis)fortune to be connected to the mainland by a bridge as the island is only few meters away…

Panoramic flight Split to Kornati

My fascination with panoramic flights and desire to see everything from the air, did not end with that flight over Split and Brac. Next destination on my list was Kornati National Park as one of the most attractive places to see from the air in Croatia. Our flight was scheduled for one sunny afternoon few…

Levrnaka Island – Kornati National Park

There are places that are simply asking for more time to enjoy them properly… One of those places in Croatia are definitely Kornati Islands group and, among them, Levrnaka Island is one of the most fascinating islands. I was sailing these islands with our boat for 10 years every two day in the summer but…

Winter sunsets in Croatia

Winter is one of my favorite parts of the year for many reasons (and cold weather is NOT one of them!). Mainly because everything looks so melancholic… I also enjoy fabulous sunsets. Especially when bura wind clears the rainy clouds! Each and every sunset is simply an experience of it’s own! But yesterday, the winds…

Latinsko idro 2009 – Traditional boat regatta in Murter

Murter Island has been known for it’s boats for few centuries now. Especially gajeta and leut. These traditional wooden boats were used by the Murterini to reach their olive groves and pastures in the area of Modrave (a narrow strip between Pakoštane and Pirovac) and Kornati which were owned by the nobility of Zadar. Later,…

Kornati Tragedy – Death in Paradise

One of the most spectacular parts of Dalmatian coastline is definitely the Kornati National Park archipelago. Over 100 islands create a maze of bare, rocky islands, inlets, bays, crystal clear seas, great food, traditional fishing… A paradise! However, two years ago, August 30th 2007, a barbecue in a tiny port of Vrulje during a strong…
