Discover the beautiful waters of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast on an open water swimming holiday of longer swims in the Sibenik Archipelago. With literally hundreds of islands to explore, (many are uninhabited), our longer swims give you the perfect chance to push yourself further, seeking out the serene ports, green-topped islands and chalky mountains that characterise this region.
This trip features an average daily swim distance of 8km and includes a combination of coastal swims, crossings, and circumnavigations. The islands, reefs, and islets, which make up the archipelago, provide a plethora of places to explore, while the fantastic water quality and underwater topography make for some excellent swimming conditions.
Located in the Adriatic Sea, we are based on the island of Prvić in the geographic heart of the Dalmatian Coast. This is the perfect base from which to explore the area's uninhabited islands, quiet fishing communities and laidback way of life. You will also have the chance to visit some of the region’s most isolated islands, including Zlarin which has been inhabited for 700 years and where cars are still banned today. Many of the islands visited on the tour are uninhabited and their natural beauty remains unspoilt.
