Yoga Sailing Retreat Itinerary
We are true to the discoverers` spirit and plan our adventures accordingly to the winds, the weather and your wishes. This means the order as well as some of stopovers may be different than presented below. Leave planning at home! The plan showed below is only an indicative itinerary and your trip may differ. Only the mad men sail against the wind!
The starting and finishing point of Yoga Sailing Retreat is Sukosan marina which lies 11km from Zadar International Airport. You will arrive in a blink of an eye, meet your crew and supply the yacht with groceries for our sailing week. Sukosan is a small, sleepy town and that`s exactly what we are looking for! In the evening we meet for a welcome drink and afterwards dine together at a local restaurant!
Preko is a tiny city with a local community who wants to get away from the hustle of western life. There are a couple of bars, restaurants and two small grocery stores. It is perfect for nature lovers as there are plenty of beaches for a swim, an islet to explore, and a high peak to hike (200m). On the top of this peak, well preserved ruins of the castle await with a 360 view of the region which we are sailing on. Simply breathtaking!
Sakarun beach is said to be one of Croatia’s most beautiful beaches. Certainly, soft sands, azure water and surrounding pine forests make it a perfect yoga practice location. Added values are the grill bar at the waterfront and the fact that no settlement is close.
Veli Iž is not very large city located on the Iž island. The city was a former renowned center of pottery industry. The craft is continued by only one family and the old products can be seen in the small local museum. We find a couple of restaurants here. The inlet is densely forested, with some small hills overlooking the town, therefore the walk encircling Veli Iz is incredibly pleasant for the body and the spirit both.
Telascica National Park
Surrounded by pine trees, we enter the magical Telašćica park. There is plenty of buoys to moor to and some beautiful cliffs to explore. There is one or two remotely located restaurants where we can enjoy a delightful meal after our yoga session in the evening. This could be a signature place of Yoga Sailing Retreat!
Kornati National Park
I always think of Kornats as of moon islands combed by a giant. Characteristic layers of stone create a regular patterns which is a background for an arid environment and some occasional settlement or a single restaurant. We anchor at a lonely bay and create a yacht raft once more. A hike to the nearby hill pays off with an unforgettable sunset view and a dive at night reveals a spectacle of nature: glowing plankton. We can count on the Milky Way being visible at night!
One of the few sandy beaches of Croatia. A truly film-like location with its reddish sand, the cliffs, the tiny islet and a few yachts anchored nearby. The ideal place for a stop, snorkelling and Yoga session on sandy, orange beach.
Keep the connection
Day 8 is the day to say goodbye. All the miles sailed, sun salutations made, skills gained and time shared with others will make you bond and build relationships. Cherish these, keep in touch and remember that your Yoga Sailing family is there. See you another time!
