Biking

There is a growing choice of activity opportunities on the mainland too, with cycling and hiking the increasingly popular draws.
In the Skradin/Krka area, there are marked cycle paths from Skradin to the waterfalls of Skradinski buk, and from Skradin to the Bribirska Glavica archeological site.
There are a couple of bicycle rental points in Skradin during the summer.
Some of the most exhilarating cycle itineraries are in hinterland of Primošten, where a network of marked routes make use of both tarmac roads and gravelly off-road trails to explore ancient villages such as Draga, Široke and Burnji together with their hillside-hugging vineyards and olive groves.
Vodice has its marked cycling roads that connect all the archeological and cultural landmarks on the mainland, as well as the road for the Croatian Cup - MTB tour as well.Tickets can be purchased at the Vodice Tourist Office.

The island of Murter is also good for biking, especially in spring and autumn when there is not too much traffic on the roads.
At the northwestern end of Šibenik county, the seaside resort of Pirovac provides access to the eastern end of the Vransko Jezero nature park, where several biking trails have been marked.

Nautical Tourism

The island-scattered seas of mid-Dalmatia have always been a major destination for nautical tourism, with the Kornati islands in particular serving as an enduringly popular magnet for yachting folk. Vodice is a major starting point for sailing flotillas, with a large marina in the centre of the resort and plenty of schools offering short sailing courses. Both Vodice and the island of Murter are important jumping-off points for sailing trips around the Kornati islands, a beautiful maritime landscape that represents the holy grail of Croatian yachting. Murter island has marinas at Murter town and Jezera (with another marina being built at Tisno), while there are two more marinas in the Kornati islands themselves.

Scuba Diving

There are scuba diving centres throughout the region, although it is on the island of Krapanj - long famous as the centre of the Adriatic sponge-diving industry – that it has the longest tradition. Skradin, with its access to the sea inlet known as the Prukljansko jezero is an important training base for rowers, canoeists and kayakers.
