Breezing Zadar

If you have a penchant for sailing or you simply enjoy a wanderlust of the open sea, the Zadar region is definitely your cup of tea! Its crystal-clear shores and lovely teal bays offer countless marine aromas and naval flavours to nurture your roaming spirit, as much as the popular hot beverage would nourish your waterlogged body!

Among hundreds of islands and islets scattered across the region only 17 of them are permanently inhabited and cultivated by the human hand, which leaves you more than 600 square kilometres of the unoccupied coast to sail around and explore the area. Feel the breeze of the alluring Adriatic Sea, moor your vessel in welcoming harbours and eco-friendly marinas, discover the beauties of stunning nature parks and swim in turquoise waters of serene coves. While you have wonderful time sailing, boating, yachting or rowing in this amazing environment, do not forget to investigate rich cultural heritage of the region and to enjoy some solid-ground activities on panoramic coastal and insular hills, which will shift your perspective, provide a completely different vantage point of the seamless blue and deliver wondrous views that will embed deeply in your mind and enwrap your entire being!
