Croatia Sailing Itinerary Split to Split
The following details for this sample Croatia Sailing Itinerary Split to Split provide insights about what you can see and do. All itineraries are subject to the weather and guest preferences.
Day 1. Split
A city with a 1,700-year-old tradition and a variety of monuments occupy a unique position as a modern Mediterranean city. Among these is the well-known Palace of Diocletian, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The first detailed tourist guide through the town and its surroundings, published in 1894, bears witness to the long tourist tradition in Split.
Day 2. Island Vis and Blue Cave – Modra Splija
The first destination or route is to Vis Island and Bisevo, which includes a visit to Blue Cave or Modra Spilja, a cave accessible only from the sea. The island has several caves, the most famous being the Blue Cave in Balun Cove. It resembles the cave in Capri, Italy, but is much more attractive and luxurious. Sunbeams penetrate through an underwater opening on a sunny day, particularly at noon, when the sea is calm. These stream into the Blue Cave, reflect from the sea bottom, and illuminate the cave with blue and silver color. After a peaceful day in coves around Bisevo, depart to Vis old city port and spend the night in the same city.
Day 3. Hvar Island and Pakleni Otoci ( Hell Islands )
Departure from Vis to Hell Islands, located in front of Hvar Island, on the south side. Hell Islands are islands with the most beautiful coves and bays with the sea so clean that you won’t believe your eyes. After an afternoon at anchor, we steam to Hvar old town harbor. Hvar is known as the sunniest island and place in the entire Med Area. Hvar is a town with a unique cultural and historical heritage and an important tourist resort. The Empress Elisabeth Hotel was opened in 1903. Hvar has an outstanding historical heritage – the Cathedral, the Franciscan monastery, the Hvar theatre, and the fortresses offer a beautiful view of the Pakleni Islands and the island of Vis. Of course, the nightlife in Hvar Town offers some of the finest cocktail bars, which can be found on the coast, and some excellent seafood.
Day 4. Korcula Island
Departure to Korcula Island, but anchoring in front of island Scedro, a small island in front of Korcula. According to some research, Scedro is identical to the ancient island of Tauris, near which the famous battle between Caesar’s and Pompey’s fleets took place (47 BC). After Hvar nightlife, bays on Scedro are precisely what you need: total relaxation and sunbathing. In the afternoon, we steam to Korcula Island, Korcula Town, known as the birthplace of world known adventurer Marco Polo. You will be visiting his birth home and museum. Korcula is an island with a long history, starting from the Neolithic, Roman Empire, and the Venetians. Korcula offers excellent wines and seafood in many restaurants and taverns.
Day 5. Dubrovnik and Mljet
We sail to Mljet from Korcula. Mljet is an island lost in the open sea, and the island is indeed hard to reach. But do not let this landscape – mentioned in the stories about Odyssey and St. Paul, as well as Benedictine monks and the Mediterranean Seal – remain a secret for you. The National Park ” Mljet” and the salt lakes are unique geological and oceanographic phenomena of worldwide importance. They originated approximately 10,000 years ago and, until the Christian era, they were freshwater lakes. You will not see the nature or environment on this island anywhere in the world—leaving Mljet to Dubrovnik, where we will spend the night. Dubrovnik’s nightlife is the most decadent in the entire Med Sea, starting with cultural events, Dubrovacke Ljetne Igre, to entertainment and casinos.
Day 6. Elafiti Islands | Croatia Itinerary Split to Split
After the Dubrovnik old town tour, we are en route to the Elafiti Islands, where we will take a rest, deserved from last night. The old historical name was first used by Pliny the Elder (1st c.) in his work Historia Naturalis, III, 152. The Greek name (elafos: deer) indicates that the game could have been found on the islands. The group comprises the following islands: Jakljan, Sipan, Ruda, Lopud, Kolocep, and Daksa (some also include Lokrum). As well as several smaller islands – Olipa, Tajan, Crkvine, and Sveti Andrija (St. Andrew). Moreover, sunbathe and enjoy lunch before we sail towards Ston. Where you will spend a peaceful night and taste some seashells and oysters known even in the Roman Empire.
