Having successfully passed the shallow waters in front of the town of Murter, charter crews can relax in the comfortable Marina Hramina.
The island Murter in central Dalmatia is home to the small fishing village with the same name located in the northwestern part. Just like many of the settlements in this part of the Adriatic Sea, Murter has a long history, beginning with Roman settlement. Being close to other centers such as Sibenik, Murter also plays host to a number of tourists each year.
The tourism tradition started in Murter as early as the 30s, when the first villas began popping up along the coast. Due to its position at the “gate” of the Kornati Archipelago, it gets more and more each year.
Travel & Arrival
Other than arriving here by boat, the only access to the island and to the city of Murter is via a small draw bridge in the village of Tisno. Most of the population comes in from larger cities along the coast like neighboring Sibenik, Split or Zadar.
Avant & Apres Sail
There aren’t any things to see around Murter but the neighboring Kornati archipelago should definitely be on your “to-see” list, no matter how long or short your vacation is. It’s actually a National Park and it’s the most beautiful archipelago in the Adriatic. Murter itself shares in the overall relief, with the same lovely sandy or pebbly beaches and the rolling hills covered in sparse vegetation.
Accommodation can be found at local hotels, in private villas and even at the marina, which not only offer good shelter for your boat, but also to you and your crew. The rest of the town is made up of a couple restaurant and inns, all very intimate and with a friendly atmosphere, as well as some sporting complexes which hold regular competition during the summer months.
Events & Actions
Apart from the daily trips to the Kornati archipelago, a tourist has the option in engaging in a number of sports like tennis, basketball, indoor football or water sports, which are sure to take up the time in between tanning or sailing sessions around the bay.
Among the local festivities, there are a couple of traditions that are held annually, like the St. Rocco feast on the 16th of August, the Birth of Mary on the 8th o f September and the Drama Amateurs Festival in May which is the most important cultural event of the region. There is also a regatta, the Murter-Kornati regatta held in April which is considered the official start of the tourist season, something the crowds wouldn’t want to miss.
