Dalmatian Islands - 7 Day Adventurous Sailing Route
What to expect
This route has longer legs and will take you to the less well known places around the Dalmatian Islands. The option is perfect for those looking to do some longer distance sailing and visit some of the more remote locations.
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 Supetar on the Saturday.
Day 1 - Supetar (Brac Island)
Often overlooked in comparison to the better known Bol, Supetar is a pleasant little town. There is a historic core of old stone streets which fan out from the little harbour which is dominated by an imposing church. The town is popular with Croatian locals which we think is a great recommendation in itself!
Day 2 - Komiza (Vis Island)
Komiza has a picturesque bay sat at the foot of Hum mountain. The town has a fan following who enjoy it’s bohemian, rough-around-the-edges charm. Narrow back streets are lined with 17th and 19th century stone town houses which twist uphill from the port. Fisherman have been based here since at least the 12th century.
Day 3 - Zaklopatica (Lastovo Island)
Lastovo was, for many years, a military island and access has only been permitted to visiting yachts for the last 15 years. Combine this with it’s relative remoteness given its distance from the mainland means few visit it. It’s for those precise reasons that you should go, hills covered in thick forests with winding paths mean it’s one of few places you can walk for hours without meeting anyone or anything.
Day 4 - Brna (Korcula Island)
Brna sits nestled at the end of a wide bay, which is split by the Mali Zaglav peninsula, on the south coast of Korcula Island. The town used to be a non-urbanized bay with the only couple of small houses used by local fishermen, where people from nearby Smokvica would stay overnight before long fishing days. It developed in the 19th century at the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when the pier was built to be used as a port for the village of Smokvica to export of local wine. The small village has a variety of restaurants, but is relatively rarely visited by yachtsmen as most pass by it on their way to better known places such as Vela Luka.
Day 5 - Pakleni islands
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.
Day 6 - Drvenik Veli
Drvenik Veli is one of a pair of islands which provide a barrier between Split and the open sea. On the eastern side of the island the water almost glows this amazing electric blue colour which is fantastic to anchor around. Opposite this on the western side of the island is a small quiet inlet perfect for the final night outside the mainland.
