It has been a few weeks since one of our Croatian island hopping blogs so we said we would write a little blog on one of our stops. Our fifth stop while island hopping in Croatia with SailAweigh.ie was Molat. We stopped here for lunch one day and it was just beautiful. The island lies on the northern part of Zadar and the whole island covers just just 23 sq km with a tiny population of about 250. There are only 2-3 restaurants and a few shops. It truly is a paradise for water sports, fishing and of course sailing.
Molat is a frequent spot for sailors and is a great spot to stop at and discover. It is also an ideal location for hiking treks(now, we didn’t try this as to be honest the heat and hiking didn’t appeal to us but if you are interested in hiking, this is a ideal spot for you).
Although we sailed to this island, if you aren’t island hopping while in Croatia a ferry runs to this island for day trips. Connecting neighbouring islands like Zadar to Molat. The schedule for the ferry is here.
