Dalmatian Islands - 7 Day Family Route
What to expect
This short hop route will take you to some of the most well known and popular destinations in the Dalmatian Islands. Perfect for those looking for short sailing legs, towns an villages, picturesque bays and plenty of activities for children of all ages.
Please note that the official collection time of the yachts is 17:00. This might mean you're unable to leave the marina on the first day and so may not reach Maslinica on the Saturday.
Maslinica (Solta Island)
The village of Maslinica lies on the west coast of Solta and is sheltered by a group of six small islands. Protection from all but the strongest westerly winds is good thanks to a long breakwater extending from the southern shore. It’s worth getting here early as it’s a popular stop, laid moorings, water and electricity are all available. The small village is worth wondering around, you may also catch a lovely sunset depending on where you are.
Distance from Trogir or Split - 8 to 14 nautical miles
Vrboska (Hvar Island)
Vrboska lies at the end of a long, twisting inlet with a quay running most of its length. The town has a strong Venetian feel to it with plenty of Gothic and Renaissance houses dotted around. There is an established marina here as well as plenty of town quay space.
Distance from Maslinica - 28 nautical miles
Hvar (Hvar Island)
Hvar Town is estimated to draw around 20,000 people a day in the high season. It’s odd that they can all fit in the small bay town, where 13th-century walls surround beautifully ornamented Gothic palaces and traffic-free marble streets, but fit they do. Visitors wander along the main square, explore the sights on the winding stone streets, swim on the numerous beaches or pop off to the idyllic Pakleni Islands, but most of all they party at night.
Distance from Vrboska - 22 nautical miles
Vis (Vis Island)
Of all the Croatian islands, Vis is the most mysterious – even to locals. The furthest of the main central Dalmatian islands from the coast, Vis spent much of its recent history serving as a military base for the Yugoslav National Army, cut off from foreign visitors from the 1950s right up until 1989. Vis is a lovely town with a variety of restaurants, bakeries and cafes. The island produced wine is a definite must too!
Distance from Hvar - 13 nautical miles
If you haven’t already visited the more northern Croatia islands the Pakleni islands give you a good indication of what they’re like. A unique stretch of islands on the south coast of Hvar are a real treat to visit. You can either choose to moor in one of the many sheltered bays or to stay in the marina which offers all the usual creature comforts associated with Croatian marinas.
Distance from Vis - 10 nautical miles
Milna (Brac Island)
Milna is located on the western side of the Brac Island. With its spacious outer and narrow, shallow inner parts is the best and most sheltered harbour on the island, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by generations of seafarers. It was the base of the Russian protectorate fleet in 1807 and before that was an important host to the Venetian fleet.
Distance from Pakleni Islands - 18 nautical miles
Another jewel in Croatia’s crown. This beautiful UNESCO world heritage village offers everything Split can but in a charming little package. Located on its own little island Trogir is surrounded by large town walls which house cobble stone paths, family run restaurants and a surprising number of shops. We can’t recommend visiting enough!
