Explore the unspoilt islands of the Kvarner Gulf as far south as the Kornati National Park.

Start your sailing holiday from Pula in the north of Croatia and visit the unspoilt islands in the Kvarner Gulf as far south as the Kornati National Marine Park. Visit the beautiful islands of Mali Losinj, Rab, Krk, Cres and Pag where towns still have a medieval heritage.

There is evidence of a long seafaring history starting with the legend of the Argonauts. Nowadays modern and well equipped ports and marinas welcome charter yachts or you can drop anchor in one of the many uncrowded bays. The fragrance of lavender growing in the many lavender fields nearby fills the air and will no doubt always remind you of your trip to this beautiful area.

If you've sailed from Split before, come and explore the Kvarner Gulf with its clear seas and reliable winds on your next sailing holiday. Yacht charters start from marinas close to Pula airport, including Marina Veruda right in the heart of Pula, overlooked by the well preserved Roman amphitheatre which dates from the 1st Century AD and is still in regular use for concerts. Yachts are also available north of Pula from Rovinj and from Portoroza in Slovenia.
