Best decision of summer 2022 – 4 days Sailing Tour
Tour starts in Split
We embark from ACI Marina Split to Hvar. Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, located on the Dalmatian coast and is the gateway to the world of sailing in Central Dalmatia. It is not only an important port and also not only the center of the region but also a magnet for tourists, a city often called “the most beautiful city in the world”.
The history of Split is 17 centuries old and begins at the time when the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his palace near the Roman town of Salona. He wanted to retire here. During these 1700 years, the palace slowly transformed into a city that attracts visitors with its rich tradition, glorious history and the beauties of nature and cultural heritage.
The city UNESCO and the beautiful Diocletian’s Square will be a great introduction to your 4-day sailing trip to Dubrovnik. Split really offers a lot: a perfect geographical location, amazing natural and historical sights, nightlife and delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
Hvar is probably the most famous island and sailing destination in Central Dalmatia. This is the absolute hub of nightlife and social life in the region. If you are lucky, you will see some Hollywood stars in the town. Moreover, it is a must-see place, with sights like the Fortica above the town, the crystal clear sea and a group of 11 Pakleni islands just a few meters from the seafront.
In a word, Hvar is a paradise for charter, as well as an entry on numerous lists of places to see. We definitely recommend a visit!
Sailors who come to the Split area will have their curiosity satisfied in a number of ways, starting with the hospitality in the town of Split, the weather conditions that are often almost ideal for sailing, the geographical location of the island and the coastline that is said to be the most beautiful and interesting in the Mediterranean. In addition, there is a rich cultural and heritage past, information, services and gastronomic offer, all together in contact with the hosts, who are known for their charm and friendliness.
Rapid industrial and tourist development is one of the reasons why the island of Korcula is one of the most densely populated islands. To sail around the island you have to cover 60 Nm, but if you prefer sightseeing, don’t miss spending the night in Korcula, located on the east side of the island, or in Vela Luka, on the west side of the island.
No other town on the Adriatic has gone through so many battles, revolutions and changes as the town of Korcula. Once enchanted by the beauty of the fortified city, Korčula is loved even by those who are not interested in history. One of the more controversial theories claims that Marco Polo was born in this town.
Gems of the Adriatic in private sailing itinerary
Vela Luka hides some other – artistic values. The local museum houses a sculpture by Henry Moore that made its contribution to the local art colony in the early 1960s.
Mljet National Park
We will spend another day in one of Croatia’s jewels. Mljet is one of the best sights Croatia has to offer. And most say it is the best place we will visit on our trip. And believe us – the best way to explore it is private sailing. The greenest Croatian island has so much to offer. It is a perfect place for your 4 days private sailing!
Mljet National Park makes up most of the islands. There are several villages, 2 salt lakes (Big and Small Lake), a Benedictine monastery on the island of St. Mary. Polače is one of the best natural harbors on the Adriatic.
Fortifications and burial mounds have been preserved from the Illyrian period. The best-preserved are those on the hill Veliki Gradac and the Great Lake and the fortress in Vodice.
The largest Roman building after Diocletian’s Palace and the Arena in Pula is the Roman Palace. It is also a part of the valuable Mljet heritage.
Sailing around small islets, knowing which wind is going to rule each day, would be the best choice for this summer!
Now, ladies and gentlemen – town of dreams!
