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.
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’ sea going exploits were legendary. The actual village is made up of stone houses surrounded by exotic looking gardens.
Distance from Dubrovnik - 9 nautical miles
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.
Distance from Lopud - 25 nautical miles
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!
Distance from Polace - 27 nautical miles
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.
Distance from Pasadur - 23 nautical miles
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.
Distance from Korcula - 26 nautical miles
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.
Distance from Sobra - 12 nautical miles
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.
