Day by Day Itinerary
Marina Trogir – Milna, Brac Island
Enjoy a private transfer to your private gulet in the marina in Trogir. Here you will meet our friendly captain and crew for the week. Your week of sailing begins with departure to Brac Island, the largest of the Croatian islands. You’ll anchor at the small fishermen’s village of Milna, which offers lots of old-world Mediterranean charm with a laid-back atmosphere, a magnificent long coastline and small stone homes. Called “Valle de mille navi, or bay of a thousand ships, by the Venetians it’s long-been a popular port for sailors, thanks to its sheltered location in a deep bay. Enjoy the aromatic scent of the pines, swimming in secluded bays and dining in local eateries serving delicious and authentic Dalmatian cuisine, including plenty of fresh seafood.
Continue this enchanting island-hopping adventure by cruising over to cosmopolitan Hvar. The sunniest island in Croatia is renowned for its outstanding upscale restaurants and hopping nightlife with practically an endless list of clubs and bars to take advantage of until the wee hours of the morning. It also boasts a rich history with lots of medieval landmarks, like Europe’s oldest public theater which opened its doors on the main square in 1612 and a grand fortress that overlooks the town providing a breathtaking viewpoint. You’ll be able to see the harbor, the Pakleni islands and the sea beyond. On a clear day, and most are, Vis Island even comes into view.
While sailing from Hvar to Korcula, enjoy a swim stop in a near picture perfect bay, just off Hvar’s south coast. Pulling into the port at Korcula Town, you’ll immediately be impressed with its good looks. Surrounded by medieval walls, the historic center is often referred to as a mini-Dubrovnik. Get lost among the narrow, cobbled streets and meandering alleyways, discovering its many Venetian influences while popping into the small shops and galleries. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy traditional fare in one of the many cafes and restaurants before taking advantage of the eclectic nightclubs and bars.
A short sail will bring you to the lush island of Lastovo, stopping for a swim along the way. Set in a tranquil bay, it’s surrounded on all sides by dense forest creating a dazzling scene with the contrast of blues and greens. Enjoy the rest of the day soaking up the sun, swimming in the crystal-clear turquoise waters, exploring the 14th-century stone homes and historic churches like the 15th-century Church of Saints Cosmas and Damian. When you’re ready to dine, sample the tasty traditional cuisine prepared from locally grown or locally caught foods, including fresh fish, in one of the family-run eateries.
Continuing north to one of the more remote Dalmatian Islands, Vis was kept closed off for 40 years while used as a strategic military base, allowing it to retain the charms of yesteryear, often referred to as the “Mediterranean as it once was.” It has an fascinating military history with lots of glimpses from its past to discover, like bunkers and other defenses. You’ll also find mountains, vineyards, charming villages, well-preserved buildings and beautiful beaches that can all be explored by renting a bike or scooter. Nearby is the world-famous Blue Cave, with its interior that, under the right conditions, is illuminated in a silvery turquoise hue.
Heading to Solta Island this morning by sailing north, while it’s close to Trogir and Split, it’s managed to stay relatively untouched. We will take some time to anchor in a beautiful bay which is perfect for snorkelling. We will spend the night near Maslinica, a small village with postcard-perfect looks renowned for its sunsets, while shops sell locally made items like schnapps, wine and honey. There are some beautiful beaches here if you want to throw down a towel and enjoy sunbathing before sipping a cocktail as the sun goes down.
Sailing back at a leisurely pace to the marina in Trogir, the final day of this exciting gulet cruise brings the opportunity to take advantage of enjoying an optional afternoon trip to the beautiful Krka National Park. Wander leisurely through the beautiful forest which meanders through a series of wooden paths past a series of breathtaking waterfalls. Return to Trogir in the early evening to enjoy dinner in one of the several delicious local restaurants in this medieval town.
