Dalmatian Islands - 7 Day Dubrovnik Sailing Route
What to expect
This seven day route will take in a variety of islands which range from thickly forested to those home to ancient Venetian style walled towns. The route has something for everyone and takes in islands that are too far south for all but those on two week holidays from Split.
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 Lopud on the Saturday.
Day 1 - Lopud (Lopud Island)
Lopud forms part of a small chain of islands referred to as the Elafiti Islands. Churches and monasteries date from the 16th century, when the inhabitant’s sea going exploits were legendary. The actual village is made up of stone houses surrounded by exotic looking gardens.
Day 2 - 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 3 - Pasadur (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 4 - Korcula (Korcula Island)
Korcula 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 Korcula). Its main settlement, Korcula 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 5 - Sobra (Mljet Island)
On the north coast of Mjlet Island, situated in an unusually wide bay you’ll find the town of Sobra, the main point of entry to the island. Sobra is a small fishing town which supplies the nearby Babino Polje. Here you’ll find the quiet rhythm of life you’d expect. Local restaurants have laid mooring lines meaning it’s easy to moor in the bay.
