ACI Marina Skradin
ACI Marina Skradin is open all year round. It is located in the narrow cove Rokovaca to the northwest of the pier in Skradin.
Situated in central Adriatic, at the mouth of the river Krka, ACI Marina Skradin is one of the most beautiful ACI marinas. It is open all year round. Because of a rare combination of salt and fresh water in the area, this marina is a special favourite among wooden boat owners who choose to winter here. The marina and the charming small town of Skradin function together like a harmonious unit. Holding town status for over 23 centuries, Skradin has an exceptionally rich past . The pleasant atmosphere of the island as well as the vast array of facilities and services attract many boaters all year round. They look forward to watching the sunset as they taste the exquisite food and top-quality Dalmatian wines.
There are seven waterfalls in Krka National Park. The Roški waterfall is the widest, and Skradinski buk is the largest and most popular. Roški is a breath taking piece of nature, surrounded by tall canyon cliffs covered in dense vegetation. But the beauty of Skradinski buk is even more fascinating. The waterfall flows over seventeen terraces stretching along 800 metres.
The water in nearby Lake Prokljan is very special; it is completely pure and serves as a never ending source of shrimp for the local fishermen. For the famous black risotto, Skradin restaurants use the shrimp and the cuttlefish that is caught here. The sea food is also tasty when fried in local olive oil.
