Relax and enjoy visiting unique picturesque places with rich cultural-historical heritage such as Solta, Brac, Hvar and Vis.
Split check in after 5.00 PM
Split to Milna, island Brac or Livka bay, island Solta
On your first day you can sail either to island Brac or island Solta, depending on the wind conditions that evening you can choose which bay will be a better option overnight. Both bays are incredibly beautiful - perfect spots for pure relaxation, snorkelling and swimming.
Bol, island Brac
Your next locations should be the oldest town on the island Brac - a small charming town of Bol, situated on the southern part of the island. Bol is very famous, not only for being a extraordinarily charming Mediterranean town, but also having of one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic, whose cape turns from one side to another side depending on the wind and waves. This is a true spectacle itself!
When in Bol, enjoy the water sports and beach life. Whether you are already an experienced veteran or keen to learn, why not spend a day kitesurfing or windsurfing? Bol is one of the best spots in Croatia for these sports. Leverage the opportunity.
If you are a wine lover, we highly recommend you visit an upscale and ambitious winery, Stina Winery. Although a newcomer to the local wine industry, Stina wines are already quite successful. If you enjoy rich, powerful Dalmatian reds, Stina is the perfect choice. Contact them to find out more about their wine tasting tours, scheduled normally twice a day.
Restaurant: Mali Raj, Bol
Night club: Club 585
Hvar, island Hvar
Welcome to ‘glitzy and glamorous’ Hvar. Town Hvar is named after the island itself, the longest and sunniest of all the Croatian islands. Here you can enjoy many elegant restaurants, hotels and clubs. Hvar is definitely a unique place that allows you to be seen if you wish to be seen or to stay discreet and invisible if that is your preference. Hvar is also the perfect place to do some shopping and explore the local cuisine. A great restaurant to visit is Gariful, right on the main promenade. As for your food choice, go for the recommended set menu. When in Hvar, you don’t want to miss a sunset walk to see the splendid view of Hvar and its archipelago. This means that you will need to head to the Fortica, the medieval castle that occupies the site of an ancient Illyrian settlement dating from before 500 BC. The views are magnificent.

Palmizana, Pakleni islands
Just across from the island Hvar, there is a stunning chain of wooded isles called Pakleni islands. Although the name ‘Pakleni’ is often translated as ‘Hell’s islands’, this place is a far cry from hell; it’s more like a paradise. On this island, you can purely relax with no worries whatsoever. Go for a walk on one of the extensive trails and explore the hidden secrets of this tiny island.
Palmizana is partially owned by the Meneghello family, whom for over one hundred years has been devoted to creating a paradise of cultural tourism. When in this bay, you must have lunch at the Meneghello’s restaurant art gallery that is amazingly located within the botanical garden. If you are a seafood lover, don’t disappoint us by ordering something other than Palmizana gregada - a heavenly seafood stew prepared with the freshest catch of the day, scampi, lobster, potatoes, white wine and olive oil - all cooked on an open fire. It is worth mentioning that people sail to this island just to taste this dish. It is necessary to pre-order it, though, so please let your skipper know ahead of time if you wish to try this delicious Croatian specialty.
Vis, island Vis
Enjoy your morning swim in Vinogradisce and sail out latest by 10 AM to the next island, the one furthest from the mainland - island Vis and its central town, town of Vis. A fun fact to know is that on the island Vis, there is also a Yugoslavian airport, as the island was a military base during socialist Yugoslavia. Actually, for decades it was closed to visitors as a strategically important point. Thankfully in 1992, the Yugoslav army left Vis and it transitioned to become a perfect holiday destination. Try to spend at least 2 days on this beautiful island.
We recommend to go for a sunset cocktail hour at the beautiful fortress Fort George followed by dinner at Roki's. It's necessary to arrange a prior booking for this great culinary experience at Roki's family estate. Roki's is very famous for its under the bell dishes. There is something for both meat and seafood lovers: delicious octopus, veal and lamb cooked with potatoes. Why not try both, paired with Roki’s homemade wine and tasty local homemade cakes.
Komiza, island Vis
Komiza is a classic Mediterranean town with narrow streets and stone houses. Bom Dia's favourite destination to go. Another extra day on island Vis can call for more swimming or explore the island by renting a scooter. We recommend to explore the island by yourself with 2 hour long rental. Also if you like scuba diving, this island is a perfect place to do it.
You can sail to Komiza by the south side of the island and stop for a swim at the island Budikovac, beach Stoncica or Stiniva beach.
Our favourite spot for dinner in Komiza is Jastozera.
Modra Spilja (Blue Grotto) to island Solta or Split
You should have an early morning start and sail to the amazing Blue Grotto, only a few miles from the island Vis, the most distant island from the mainland of Croatia. The grotto is one of the best known naturally beautiful spots on the Adriatic. You will be amazed by its glowing blue light from below as you float around in a small boat in awe and wonder.
On your last day, try to soak up every minute. Before you head back to Split you can discover one more last bay of island Solta or perhaps Brac before finishing this unbelievable week long island hopping adventure.
