Active holiday specialist and a very passionate windsurfer

Activities are taking place in Sveti Filip i Jakov, but there's also a visit to National Park Krka

You’ll quickly become familiar with the catchphrase "pomalo" ("take it easy"), which perfectly encapsulates the everyday rhythm of life in Dalmatia.

In order to make your local experience even more memorable, you can visit one of the secluded food stands near the surf centre for a taste of fresh fish prepared right in front of you.

Galešnjak, a small heart-shaped island in the Pašman Channel, became world famous after an image of it spread around the Internet. The satellite photograph caught the attention of Internet users, who wanted to know the exact location of the island.

Lovers' Island, surrounded by the turquoise sea, draws in swarms of visitors. Don't hesitate to rent a SUP board and paddle to this lovely island in order to add some romance to your Dalmatian holiday.

Day-by-day itinerary

DAY 1

Saturday - Explore the town

You're in for an action-packed week in Sv. Filip i Jakov. After arriving, you can settle in at your apartment close by the beach and freshen up before taking your first stroll. The friendly surfing centre team will greet you at the beach in the afternoon and introduce you to the programme for the entire week. You can then spend the rest of the day walking around town.

DAY 2 - 4

Sunday - Tuesday - Windsurfing days

The windsurfing centre is located at the beach near the apartment. You'll start the day by having fun on the sea and mastering certain new skills. Experienced instructors will introduce you to the exciting world of windsurfing. You'll find out how to use the required equipment, tackle the wind and learn the basic maneuvers. The light sails and broad surfboards will make your first windsurfing steps much more enjoyable. End the day at one of the many cocktail bars.

DAY 5

Wednesday - Biking day

Make yourself an early breakfast because we'll be taking you on a bike tour of the Krka National Park today. We will arrange transportation for you to Skradin, which is the starting point of the tour. After meeting the guide, you will undergo preparations for the excursion and receive safety instructions. We will begin our bike tour with a ride to the shore of Lake Visovac, where we will board the scenic boat that will take us to the islet of Visovac. Located here is a Franciscan monastery and you will find out many fascinating facts about the tumultuous history of this area. After some sightseeing on the island, we will continue our bike tour to the beach where we will take a break for refreshments before proceeding to our next stop. Before we end our tour, we will take you to Skradinski Buk, the most unique part of the Krka National Park. Swimming near this jaw-dropping waterfall, which is over 40 m high, is an experience that you will definitely never forget. Our bike tour ends in Skradin and we will take you back to your apartment. Rest well in your comfortable apartment because after a day of activities above the sea, tomorrow we will be going under it.

DAY 6

Thursday - Scuba diving day

Today is Scuba diving day. Upon arriving at the diving centre, you will receive all the required equipment and you can embark on your diving adventure. We will transfer you to one of the adjacent islands by boat, where you can enjoy discovering the secrets of the maritime world after receiving guidelines from your instructor and undergoing diving preparations. During the entire time, you will be under the safe watch of the instructor who will be diving with you to a maximum depth of 5 meters. Relax and become one with the nature surrounding you. You can also organise taking underwater photos with the centre in order to create some wonderful keepsakes of this special day. Spend the evening at one of the numerous local restaurants.

DAY 7

Friday - SUP board day

After a few adrenaline-filled days, this morning feel free to sleep in and lounge in bed. In line with the relaxed and easygoing lifestyle of the locals, you can take the day off. After all, you are on holiday. You can take the windsurfing school equipment for three hours and wait for some good wind conditions in order to show off the skills you've acquired.
