Referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, the city of Dubrovnik nestles behind its huge imposing ramparts. Walk the city walls and you will soon capture the essence of Croatia and its heritage.
DAY 2 Dubrovnik - Mljet
The national park of the island of Mljet is the perfect introduction to Croatia’s islands. Anchor for lunch at Polace, on the island’s north coast, before stepping ashore to explore the interior with its saltwater lakes.
DAY 3 Mljet - Vis
The remote island of Vis is the Croatian equivalent of Capri, complete with its own blue grotto. The interior is dense with olive groves and vines, whilst the coastline is made up of relatively deserted beaches, the best of which include Milna, Stoncica and Srebrna.
DAY 4 Vis - Hvar
Built around a Baroque-style harbour, Hvar is the most sophisticated of Croatia’s islands. Fast becoming the St Tropez of the eastern Mediterranean, is now a popular spot for the yachting crowd and has plenty to keep you entertained.
DAY 5 Hvar
DAY 6 Hvar - Brac
Enjoy an early morning breakfast anchored off the southern coast of Brac. Take the tender ashore to Croatia’s most famous beach, Bol. A long strip of sand, the beach changes with the tide and is an ideal location for a spot of windsurfing.
DAY 7 Brac - Split
Cruise to the old town of Split and step ashore to discover the Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace around which the city grew up.
DAY 8 Split - Trogir
Moor alongside the Riva at Trogir and step ashore and meander through the promenades before raising a sundowner to your charter at one of the many cafes that line the waterfront.
