Dalmatian 7 Day Itinerary - Dubrovnik 

Day 1 - Dubrovnik

This large medieval walled city is a magnificent port of call, being famously hailed as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ by George Bernard Shaw. Regardless of whether you are visiting Dubrovnik for the first time or the hundredth, the sense of awe and beauty when you set eyes on the Stradun never fades. Indeed it’s hard to imagine anyone becoming jaded by the city’s marble streets, baroque buildings and the endless shimmer of the Adriatic, or failing to be inspired by a walk along the ancient city walls that have protected this civilised, sophisticated republic for five centuries.

Day 2 - Sipanska Luka (Sipan Island)

Sipan is the largest island in a chain lying two miles of the mainland coast. Most of the islands making up this chain are heavily forested and unspoilt. Sipanska Luka is the largest of the villages on the island and also serves as the main ferry terminal. You’ll find a couple of laid moorings here but you will most likely need to anchor.

Day 3 - Polace (Mljet Island)

Luka Polace is virtually landlocked and therefore very well protected. Polace is the best place to leave your yacht while you explore the two deep, forest-shrouded saltwater lakes of the National Park on land. It’s about a forty five minute walk over to the lakes via Montokuc hill. Alternatively you can hire a bicycle.

Day 4 - Lastovo Island

Lastovo is one of the less visited islands in the area, which is one of the reasons it’s worth visiting. The island is covered in thick forests and the coastline is no less dramatic. Due to being a five hour ferry ride from Split few tourists visit meaning you’ll certainly find a quiet spot or two!

Day 5 - Korcula (Korcula Island)

Korčula is rich in vineyards, olive groves, small villages and hamlets. The island’s dense woods led the original Greek settlers to call the island Korkyra Melaina (Black Korčula). Its main settlement, Korčula Town, is a gorgeous grid of marble streets and impressive architecture. With a population of around 3000 inhabitants, Korcula Town is the largest settlement on the island, and is an absolute gem. It’s a beautiful walled town with narrow streets, old buildings, monuments, walls, towers, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Day 6 - Sobra  (Mljet Island)

The harbour of Sobra is at the end of a wide bay on the north east side of Mljet. With regular ferries to Dubrovnik and Korcula there are plenty of travel opportunities. Local restaurants have laid mooring lines meaning it’s easy to moor in the bay.

Day 7 - Dubrovnik

If you didn’t have time or didn’t get the opportunity to visit Dubrovnik then it’s an absolute must. Inside the old town there is a maze of alleys and cobbled streets packed with small tourist shops and restaurants to explore. Definitely take the walk around the walls of the city, though do take a big bottle of water. We also recommend visiting the cafes nestled on the cliffs between the city walls and the sea, where you can enjoy the view and those more adventurous among you can even jump from the cliffs into the water below.
