Marina Kremik is located in a beautiful bay, well protected few kilometers south of the town of Primosten.

The season for sailing on the Adriatic is from April to October, with the most stable weather between June and September. The prevailing wind is the Maestral. The wind blows steadily from the sea during the day and provides excellent conditions for renting a yacht in Primosten. From the south blows the Jugo, also called the sirocco. It can be quite violent and brings many rain clouds. It announces itself for many hours, which makes it easy to look for a sheltering bay in time. The bora is a downdraft wind that blows from the coast. It usually announces itself with thick clouds over the mountains. Usually the bora gives only short intermezzos in summer, but the protection of a safe bay is recommended.
Yacht charter Rogoznica
Both marinas are located in the eastern part of the Sibenik-Knin County and thus in the very east of the North Dalmatia region. Primosten has a pretty old town, through whose alleys a romantic stroll is worthwhile. Especially outside the vacations, visitors can enjoy the tranquility here. The region is considered to have one of the lowest rainfall in Croatia and offers some beautiful beaches. The shallowly sloping Velika Raduca is not only considered the most beautiful beach, but is also suitable for a relaxing family swim. Worth seeing is the church Sv. Juraj, which stands at the highest point of the town and was built as early as 1485. Impressive is the old town gate, which stands at the entrance to the old town, which is situated on a former island. About three kilometers to the south are the vineyards of Primosten, which because of their beauty are considered candidates for the UNESCO World Heritage List.
When chartering a yacht, Rogoznica is not only a strategic place. It is worth spending a few days on the mainland. The old town center is located on an island, which can be reached by a causeway. The alleys are lined with stone houses typical of the region. Restaurants and cafes invite you to linger along the waterfront. A view across the bay leads to the marina opposite, where you can rent a catamaran and visit Sibenik and the Krka National Park. Around the town, numerous beaches provide a relaxing atmosphere for the whole family. Right by the marina is Lake Zamjavo, the dragon's eye lake, around which cliffs rise up to 24 meters.
Worthwhile destinations on the North Dalmatian coast during a yacht charter from Rogoznitsa or Promosten.
Head east to the Kornati National Park as you leave Primosten under sail. The marine protected area includes 89 islands, which entice with beautiful bays for swimming and anchoring. Small restaurants and villages invite you to go ashore. Always there is a magnificent view of the sea. This becomes even more impressive if you take the time to climb one of the hills. If you charter a catamaran and leave Rogoznica in the direction of Kornati, you should not miss these views. On the islands, it is not uncommon to see ruins that testify to the fact that people lived here in ancient and medieval times. Kornati islands are bigger than the national park. About 150 islands belong to it. On Drugi Otok there is the nature park Telašćica, which is worth seeing, with beautiful bays and the original filming location of the movie "Treasure on Silver Lake". For all fans of the Karl May film adaptation, this is a highlight during a yacht charter from Primosten.
But not only Kornati islands are worth visiting if you plan a yacht charter from Rogoznica. Another option is to rent a catamaran and head for Sibenik. The old town is wonderfully preserved and offers the opportunity to stroll through the alleys. Here, visitors can enjoy a café or restaurant and take in the sights.

Ivana), a magnificent view of the city and the bay opens up.
