Starting from Biograd or from Zadar you can visit the Kornati islands. They are 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. The Kornati islands and islets are over hundred but the exact number is debatable. They are mostly rocky consisting of shell limestone having no surface streams but only a thin covering of grass. Nowadays, there are no permanent settlements on the islands only few houses, which are occupied seasonally by fishermen and farmers. The Kornati islands are now designated as a National Park, and several marinas are being built.
Biograd is the centre of the riviera consisting of Petar na Moru (Peter on the Sea), Turanj, Sv. Filip i Jakov (Sts. Philip and James), Biograd, Pakostane and Drage, as well as of several places on the island of Pasman: Tkon, Kraj, Pasman, Barotul, Mrljane, Nevidjane, Dobropoljana, Banj and Zdrelac, and Vrgada on the island of the same name. Thanks to its position in the most indented part of the Croatian Adriatic coast, the area provides excellent opportunities for nautical tourism and boating as one of few parts of the Mediterranean. In the close vicinity are three national parks: Paklenica, Kornati Archipelago and Krka, as well as Telascica Nature Park and lake Vransko Nature Park.
Apart from cultural and historical heritage, Biograd is also characterized by nice beaches, picturesque bays and various accommodation facilities. The town has a number of restaurants offering specialities of local and international cuisine. The picturesque Pasman Channel with a series of small islands protects Biograd and its riviera from strong winds from the sea, which is an advantage for swimmers and boaters.
Because of its central position on the eastern coast of the Adriatic sea, the district of Split and Dalmatia has always an extraordinary, cultural and historical role. This entire rounded area consists of a wide hinterland and a coastal belt whit an archipelago with many islands.
The city of Split is not only built within and around the fortified Roman palace-much of the palace still stands today-, but also it has many fine buildings, churches and museums which are worth to visit.
Our base in the South Dalmatia is situated in Trogir, 15 km from Trogir airport.

The main seasons in the Adriatic are Summer and Winter. Spring and Autumn are transitional periods rather than true seasons as experienced in temperature regions. In this area the Spring transitional period occurs in April/May, and the transition to Winter in October. During Summer months winds are usually light over the whole Adriatic, averaging force 2 or 3 and rarely reaching high forces.
