During this sailing holiday you visit the islands of Solta, Vis, Bisevo, Hvar and Brac, the famous Zlatni Rat Beach and the enchanting Blue Cave.
Day 1: Split - Maslinica (14 NM)
Split is a wonderful place to start your trip over Croatia. On the first day, you’ll have an opportunity to see the best-known sights of the city, but arrival at the marina will be the main event. Be sure to discuss the route with the manager and check the weather forecast.
Day 2: Maslinica - Vis (20 NM)
Of all the Croatian islands, it seems to tourists and locals alike, the most mysterious of them is the island of Vis. It is the most distant among the islands of Central Dalmatia, and for much of its recent history, up to 1989, Vis served as a military base for the Yugoslavian Army. Many local residents had to vacate the island. Consequently, it was problematic to develop tourist infrastructure for Vis after it was opened for the general public. However, this is exactly what attracts visitors here. Peacefulness, quiet, and serenity have become this virgin region’s trademarks. Guests are also drawn to the naturally lit grotto, Blue Cave, located on the island of Biševo just five kilometers southwest.
Day 3: Vis - Komiza (12 NM)
At first sight, the island of Biševo may seem uninhabited. However, there are 14 people living there! There you’ll find a Benedictine Monastery, St. Sylvester Church, and a small port. But the main sights of the island are 14 caves; the best known of them is the Blue Cave. Sunrays creeping into the grotto through a small hole give the cave walls and water an amazing turquoise shade. It’s possible to view this captivating spectacle from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Day 4: Komiza - Hvar (21 NM)
The best time to visit the island of Hvar is May-June when tourists can catch the most amazing rose-coloured oleanders and delicate lilac-coloured lavenders blooming. The main city of the island, also named Hvar, is included on the UN List of Historical Mediterranean Cities because of its architectural style. The Cathedral of St. Stephen with works by the well-known sculptor Juraj Dalmatinac (Giorgio Orsini), the Napoleon Fortress, Havarska Pjaca (Hvar’s Square), and the Archbishop’s Palace are just some of the city sights. You can visit other settlements on the island: Jelsa, Stari Grad, Vrboska. Fans of nudism will appreciate the Pakleni islands also known as Hell’s islands.
Day 5: Hvar - Bol (17 NM)
One-hundred-year-old pine trees, Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) beach, and the sapphire-coloured waters of the Adriatic Sea with ideal waves for windsurfers made the fairytale town of Bol, on the island of Brač, a popular resort long ago. The Dominican Monastery, the Branco Dešković Gallery located in the Baroque-style Palace, and the Glagolitic Order Monastery in a stone cave are also top sites to visit in Bol.
Day 6: Bol - Milna (14 NM)
Natural harbours of Milna have been used to seafarers since the time of Emperor Diocletian. Today 200 anchoring berths will meet travelers with open arms. A two-hour stroll through Milna will take you to see the Kirinić family castle, St. Mary Church, St. Josef Church in Gothic style.
