What's included in this trip
Sail Croatia - Dubrovnik to Primosten SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Arrive in the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ - as designated by Lord Bryon -and take the opportunity to explore this magical destination, particularly the stone walls that frame the city. Then, board the vessel and learn the sailing ropes while heading out across the Mediterranean Sea overnight.
Disembark to wander around the charming, red-roofed town of Ston with its jumble of narrow streets, built to confuse invaders in medieval times. While here, be sure to sample a plate of local oysters, plucked fresh from the Ston Channel. Cast away over the turquoise waters of the Adriatic to Mljet. Venture through the national park with a guide to discover inky blue lakes, deep gorges and Roman ruins.
Put out to sea once again, this time headed via the Peljeski Channel to Korcula, the rumoured hometown of one of history’s most intrepid travellers, Marco Polo. Experience a touch of nostalgia in the Old Town or make the most of Korcula’s lovely beaches.
Hit the open water, skirting the beaches and jagged cliffs of the peninsula, before reaching the port city of Ploce on the mainland. Perhaps embark on a tour of the Neretva River, trying to spot native bird species in the treetops.
Experience the much-lauded beauty of Hvar, an island paradise that boasts well-preserved Renaissance buildings, rolling fields of lavender, a bubbly bar and restaurant culture and some of the finest beaches in Croatia.
Travel on to Brac, a dramatic rock-strewn landscape and home to countless olive, fig and almond groves, and a number of wineries. Roll off the boat and snorkel across the jewel-like water spotting brightly coloured sea creatures, lie back on the famous Zlatni Rat Beach or enjoy a meal in the Old Town of Bol.
Sail away to Split with its picturesque harbour, renowned Diocletian Palace ruins and old-world charm. Then, continue through the Kastela Gulf to Trogir, a walled, medieval city.
Embark over the Mediterranean sea one last time on a short cruise to Primosten, where this sailing trip comes to an end.
