Murter

Murter Island is the largest island in the Sibenik Archipelago and a great starting point for a yacht charter in Croatia. Connected to the mainland by a bridge at Tisno, it has good tourist infrastructure.


If you would like to rent a boat on Murter Island, there are three marinas, Betina Marina, Hramina Marina and Jezera Marina. On a bareboat charter or a crewed charter there is much to be enjoyed in this region. Incredible islands, medieval towns and easy sailing.


From Murter both the Sibenik Archipelago and the Kornati islands await the enthusiastic sailor. The Sibenik archipelago, with some 249 islands of which only six have permanent residents is perfect for that rustic getaway. Kaprije island, tranquil with a well-sheltered cove, Krapanj island famous for its sponge industry, tiny Prvc island covered in vineyards, rocky Zirje and Zlarin, famous for its coral jewelry.


The Kornati islands which are some 140 islands, islets and reefs form the densest archipelago in the Adriatic. Stark and uninhabited with a rugged coastline and seemingly endless sunshine, it’s simply great sailing.


Murter island is connected to the mainland at Tisno. The nearest cities are Sibenik, 30 km away, Zadar 70 km away and Split, 100km away. You can reach Murter by car, using the Adriatic coastal road or highway. The nearest bus and rail stations are in Sibenik, Zadar and Split.


There are international ferry lines from Ancona to Zadar and Ancona, Pescara to Split. The nearest international airports are Zadar Airport, 60 km away and Split Airport, 80km away.


Sailing conditions are generally excellent; the tides have little effect and the currents are weak. While sailing around the Kornati islands, a gusty wind called Bora can blow up quickly and can be dangerous. Other than that the prevailing winds are favourable which is what makes sailing from Murter so popular. This beautiful and diverse region is well worth a sailing week or two.
