"Dalmatia (; Croatian: Dalmacija [dǎlmaːtsija]; Italian: Dalmazia; see names in other languages) is one of the four historical regions of Croatia, alongside Croatia proper, Slavonia, and Istria.

Dalmatia is a narrow belt of the east shore of the Adriatic Sea, stretching from the island of Rab in the north to the Bay of Kotor in the south. The Dalmatian Hinterland ranges in width from fifty kilometres in the north, to just a few kilometres in the south; it is mostly covered by the rugged Dinaric Alps. Seventy-nine islands (and about 500 islets) run parallel to the coast, the largest (in Dalmatia) being Brač, Pag, and Hvar. The largest city is Split, followed by Zadar and Šibenik.

The name of the region stems from an Illyrian tribe called the Dalmatae, who lived in the area in classical antiquity. Later it became a Roman province, and as result a Romance culture emerged, along with the now-extinct Dalmatian language, later largely replaced with related Venetian. With the arrival of Croats to the area in the 6th century, who occupied most of the Hinterland, Croatian and Romance elements began to intermix in language and culture.

After the medieval Kingdom of Croatia entered a personal union with Hungary in 1102, its cities and lands were often conquered by, or switched allegiance to, the kingdoms of the region during the Middle Ages. At one time, most of Dalmatia came under rule of the Republic of Venice, which controlled most of Dalmatia between 1420 and 1797, with the exception of the small but stable Republic of Ragusa (1358–1808) in the south. Between 1815 and 1918, it was a province of the Austrian Empire known as the Kingdom of Dalmatia. After the Austro-Hungarian defeat in the World War I, Dalmatia was split between the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes which controlled most of it, and the Kingdom of Italy which held several smaller parts, and after World War II, the People's Republic of Croatia as a part of Yugoslavia took complete control over the area. Following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, Dalmatia became part of the Republic of Croatia." Wikipedia

Skradin
4.1

A pretty town with boat tours up to famous Krka waterfalls. Alternatively there is a 1hour 30min walk or hire a bike for 50 kuna which we did. The breeze from cycling was a saviour. If we’d have walked it would have been so hot. The boat was crowded and not a good idea in Covid times.

ACI Skradin Marina
2.1

Totally rude staff working at this marina. It’s big, and looks ok, but the rudeness of the guy we dealt with was shocking. Very rude, and insisted on charging us 400 kuna for a buoy for a couple of hours only (same price for an overnight stop) even when we explained we only needed some groceries. Avoid this place!

ACI Skradin Marina
1.5

No welcome. No answer on vhf. Approached main quay to then be told to go other side. Went other side to be told your can’t just take any mooring’. We only wanted to stop 1 hour to get groceries but minimum payment was 540 kuna (£70) for 24 hours. Anchoring not allowed and buoys were 400 kuna. Really bad service.

Sedmo Nebo Jetty
4.8

We took one of the many buoys in the beautiful bay, Handed over 200 kuna to a man in a rib who seemed to own all the buoys in the entire area. The restaurants have none it turns out. We watched the sun set and then joined many of our fellow boats via dinghy to Babalu restaurant/grill and had a delicious evening meal in a fantastic setting. It looked a little ‘shack’ from a distance but is really nice once onshore. Definitely worth a visit. Great service, great food, and fantastic atmosphere.

Zlarin
3.0

We arrived in Zlarin town/marina late morning in September. It was fairly quiet, but mainly due to C-19 and far less Brits on the water. It’s pretty, easy to get a slime line. It was hot. We had a quick walk around and beer, and then missed the grocery store that closes between 12.30pm until 6pm. We were able to get rid of our rubbish and refill our water tank all for free. Worth a visit if you have time.

Magarna Cove
4.0

We didn’t actually stay here, but our anchorage isn’t on the map as it’s so small. We spent the night at Krbela bay. We were the only boat here for the night. It is beautiful. Nothing but nature around you. However, be aware of the wasps! They were there by the hundreds and actually really ruined our stay. Otherwise lovely.

Sicenica Marina
2.9

Small pretty place to spend the night. We picked up one of the local buoys and paid 300 kuna for the night. Only 3 boats overnight. One word of caution is that the local fisherman appear late at night to use the free buoys, and shine their bright lights directly onto you. Not that relaxing or private, to say the least.

Marina Kremik Marina
4.8

I'we neen there for the past two seasons and have only the good words for it. Marina is in the middle of Adriatic so weather you want to go N or S it's all near by. Supermarkets are near by drive by car 5 min and there you can resuply for reasonable price. Service is available and good. Safety and security is impecable and mostly there is a parking spot available close to your boat. I will be back again.

Nautika Kufner
1.3

We found the service utterly disreputable, as it appears to all the other online reviews that we wish we had read. We would advise extreme caution before entering into an agreement with this company.
