It is not possible to discover all wonderful places, feel the history, get enough of fresh seafood, enjoy swimming, sailing, snorkling and partying in only one week. BUT you have to start somewhere and here is one of our most favourite sailing tour - from SPLIT to SPLIT.
We are starting from Split harbour. It would be a shame not to exlore this city before we finally board to yacht. We have a walk to Diocletian´s Palace that is on UNESCO Heritage Site, stroll the Riva Promenade, climb Marjan Hill and enjoy some great food, wine and Dalmatian ambiance. In the afternoon we are going back to the harbour. The skipper will introduce the yacht to you and will tell you some things that are "good to know". We are ready and our aim is an island Brac. Overnight on the board would be for the following 7 nights.
In the morning we will sail to our next destination - Hvar Island. Before that we will make a stop at Zlatni Rat (also Golden Horn) - the paradise beach on the Brac island. Hvar is the sunniest and the longiest Island of Croatia and therefore very popular. We will admire the spectacular view from the Splanjola fortress and stroll along one of the most popular revieras in the world. We will enjoy gold beaches, sun and dalmatian hospitality. For all party lovers this place offers a busy nightlife untill dawn.
We start our day with morning departure towards the absolutly stunning island of Mljet. This is the greenest island of Croatia and real balm for you soul. We will enter the untouched nature, olive groves, hiking, rose wine and small villages. We will stop at Polace as it is the entry to Mljet National Park. We will also explore two salt lakes - Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero and hike to Odysseus cave. The rest of afternoon you can cycle, rent a scooter, kayak or head to the small island Monastery of St. Mary.
For today will be our goal the most popular city in Dalmatia and "Pearl of Adriatic" - Dubrovnik. During the walking tour we will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovník and tell you more about its history. To take a cable car to get a Bird´s Eye View of Dubrovník is a must-do. The views of the city and Adriatic Coast are spectacular. For fans of Game of Thrones - you can visit the most memorable scenes from GoT locations. You can also visit Vokrum Island to take a break from city life.
We set sail in the morning to reach the island of Korčula. It is rich in vineyards, olive groves, small villages and harbouring a glorious old town. Korčula town is also a birthplace of Marco Polo. We will meet his name everywhere and we will visit the house where he was born. There is a small museum and the top floor offers a sensational panoramic view over the old town. This place is famous for an excellent wine, food and olive oil. We can not leave without visiting one of the beaches in Lumbarda.
On we will go to Hvar island again but from the other site. We will visit Hvar´s stunning "little Venice" Vrboska. This charming town is full of beautiful canal-side houses and stone arch bridges. We will stroll around the harbour and the fortress church of Saint Mary and will enjoying the much slower pace of life. After discovering some of its major landmarks and eating traditional Dalmatian food, we will move to a close town Jelsa. In the evening we head to a winery and organic farm on the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Stari Grad Plain for the olive oil and wine tasting.
Today we will reach back to our starting point unfortunatelly. We will enjoy our last stops for swimming, diving, snorkling and water fun in crystal blue sea because the water is so warm, inviting and clear. The last day we will spend on the boat. This last day just put your feet up, pick your favourite book, listen to music, eat, drink and have a fun. The evening comes so fast. We will arive to the Port of Split and we are going to have a final dalmatian dinner on the boat and also the final private sunset. We are looking for the funniest party in Split and fall asleep in the morning lulled by the sea waves.
Today is the very last day and after the breakfast, we have to leave the boat. ☹
Every day brings a new sunrise, new adventure to experiance, new hills to climb and new people to meet. Leave your worries at home. It is time to weigh anchor. No packing and unpacking, no ringing cell phones, no limits, no stress. Calm down, observe the seagulls and listen to the murmur of the sea.
