The best place to escape technology - the Kornati Islands
It can be hard to leave the stresses of real life behind... but we don’t know a faster or more effective way to switch off the mind (and phone!) than leaving harbour on the first day with nothing but blue sea and blue sky ahead of you - holiday mode awaits!
By immersing yourself in a sailing holiday you are forced to put down your phone/tablet/laptop and focus on the activity at hand – be it steering, sailing or simply giving into temptation and plunging into the crystal clear sea... it's a hard life!
With this (and your stress levels) in mind check out our top pick for escaping technology and reality for a week or two's sailing!
Our Top Choice
The Kornati Islands
Altogether we offer fifteen different sailing grounds to choose from; yes you could go on a sailing holiday somewhere new for the next fifteen years. But if it's escaping reality and technology that you're after then we have an idea of where to go. The Kornati Islands are a great place to really switch off. With so many islands to explore and a National Park you could go an entire day without seeing another boat, what more could you want!
The untouched beauty
The Kornati Islands or 'Stomorski Islands' in Croatian are almost all a National Park which you have to pay to sail through but it's well worth it. Located in the northern part of Dalmatia, south of Zadar and west of Sibenik there are 140 islands found in 320 square kilometres of sea area, 89 of these form the National Park or 'Nacionalni Park Kornati'. From protected beaches and islands to the stunning Krka Falls on the mainland this area will leave you wishing you could stay forever. Due to restrictions which protect the islands from being developed upon this has left a haven of rural scenery which plays host to lots of wildlife.

Why it's so peaceful
The main reason the Kornati's are the best place to get away from it all is simple because there are no permament settlements. This makes for a wonderful landscape untouched by mass tourism. You can sail for hours or sometimes even a whole day without seeing another boat and you'll never have to hurry to get into a marina by mid afternoon to guarantee a space.
Sailing with a skipper
For those of you who don’t have the necessary certificates but do want to discover the beautiful Kornati Islands do not fear, as we offer skippered charter here too. We have a pool of friendly local skippers to choose from, each of them eager to show you what their local sailing ground has to offer. This means not ony can you turn off your phone for the week but you can turn off your brain too because the skipper can do all the thinking for you!
So don't hestitate today, get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and 'escape, switch off and explore' the Kornati Islands with us on your next sailing holiday!
