We continue our cruise towards Lastovo, the furthest, inhabited island in Dalmatia, which Romans called the Imperial island (approx. EUR 5.- to be paid on the spot to enter Nature Park Lastovo zone). Docked in Ubli port, one has the opportunity to visit the protected Nature Park or visit the biggest town on the island – Lastovo. The Island is surrounded by many smaller islands, with plenty of secluded bays suitable for snorkeling, but also known for many little churches and unusually shaped chimneys. Overnight in Lastovo.
Early morning departure towards Vis island, which was closed to tourists for many years. Vis was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of the ‘Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Near Vis, there is the little Ravnik island, where the Green cave is situated. It was named after the unusual light that reflects in the sea from the hole on the top of the cave. After a short swim, depending on the weather conditions, we sail further to the town of Komiža or Vis for overnight. Komiža is a typical Mediterranean place on the western part of the island, where the fishery on the eastern part of the Adriatic coast began. Enjoy the walk through the narrow alleys and rich heritage, or maybe on one of the pebble beaches with fresh water springs, that stretch along the whole eastern side of the Komiža bay. The town of Vis is situated on the northern side of the island and it was developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia, formed by the Greeks in 4th century B.C. Visit the remains of the Roman Baths, City museum or take a walk enjoying the view on the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the coast.
Early in the morning we cruise towards the little Biševo island to visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon. As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the possibility of our visit will depend on those conditions, however you will be notified of this by the crew. Entrance to Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot (approx. EUR 9.- per person). We continue towards Stari Grad on the Hvar island, the sunniest Adriatic island. Free afternoon to explore this unique town. The famous Stari Grad Field is the oldest in Croatia and the best preserved example of ancient Greek system of agriculture. Together with the old town it is a part of world heritage protected by UNESCO.
After breakfast we cruise towards the beautiful Brač island and the famous town of Bol. Swimming is planned at the most famous beach in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat (the Golden Horn - its gravel promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly change in shape).
