The entire archipelago of Biograd is perfect for sailing, as it has a crystal-clear sea, mild tidal movements and light sea currents!

Located in the most indented part of the Adriatic Sea, in the area with the largest number of islands and several national and nature parks, Biograd is an ideal starting point for all lovers of sailing, especially between April and October. 

The town has long and proud maritime history and it is one of the most popular nautical spots of Northern Dalmatia, offering excellent facilities of well-equipped marinas, cosiness and intimacy of little private bays and numerous opportunities to explore stunning natural environment. Thanks to its favourable setting and strong connection with the sea, Biograd was one of the first summer resorts that started hosting nautical visitors and tourists in general, as early as the 1920’s.

Nature & Adventure

Learn the story of the Mašković summer house that has been transformed into a boutique hotel!

Jusuf Mašković, originally from Vrana, a high dignitary on the Sultan's court and a supreme admiral of the Turkish fleet, wanted to build his luxurious and modern summer house Han in eastern style for his return from Constantinople to his homeland. It started in 1644 and over 500 workers worked on it every day. But Mašković never got to see it. A year later, along with 60,000 soldiers, he conquered Crete. The nobility he showed to the Venetian soldiers provoked the sultan who summoned him to the court where Mašković was executed. His death changed everything, even the Han, which was built more modestly. Today you can admire it in its full richness since it has been turned into a boutique hotel.

The outer sides of many surrounding islands have depth of over 50 m and therefore provide perfect conditions for exploration of beautiful coral reefs, interesting hollow caves and teeming marine life. The coastal and insular flora and fauna around Biograd is rich and colourful and high visibility of the sea is ideal for underwater photo safaris, whereas the indented coast and lovely coves offer a nice shelter from occasional stronger winds and subsequent rising waves.
