Day 4, Tuesday: Pučišća (Brač) – Omiš – Split

As you sail along the coast stop at the ancient town of Omiš. Its fortresses are silent stone reminders of the power and the might of the infamous pirates who once made their homes and fortunes here. After a short walking tour board a small boat and sail into Cetina River Canyon, a protected nature area. Continue to Radman Mills for a local specialty snack. Return to Omiš and your boat, and set sail during lunch. Arriving in Split take a guided tour of the port, the seafront promenade, and Roman Emperor Diocletian‘s Palace.

Day 5, Wednesday: Split – Bol (Brač) – Hvar

Stop in Bol, a small town on island of Brač, for a swim at the Golden Horn. Enjoy the 530 metre long, golden pebble beach, said to be the best in Croatia. It is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Return to your boat for lunch, then head to Hvar, one of the most popular islands in the Adriatic, and a meeting point for the international jetset. The “Croatian Madeira” is also one of the longest islands stretching along the shores of Croatia. A sightseeing tour of Hvar town shows you the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery and many more historical sights. Your evening is free to explore Hvar on your own. (B, L)
