A dive into the most beautiful Adriatic and a occasional landing onto beaches like the one on the island of Vis, and then off to the north, a visit to the enchanting national park of the Kornati islands.
These islands are often compared to the Polynesia of the Adriatic, made up of bare rock faces and dry stone walls, almost all uninhabited, when navigating around them we find small “secret” restaurants and kiosks from which excellent grilled fish can be sampled.
The last stage to the south, defined as the pearl of Dalmatia, we find the island of Hvar, rich in small inlets and coves only accessible from the sea and the fashionable Palmizana where you can dock in the evenings to enjoy a romantic meal or party all night and cement in your minds all the unforgettable moments of your catamaran holiday.
