Witness this bright blue phenomenon up-close before heading towards another cave of the island.
The longest cave (160 m) on Bisevo island is a Monk seal cave, named after the Meditarranean Monk seal. This, one of the most endangered mammals in the world, is very rare type of seal and unfortunately almost extincted. We stop here so you can swim inside till the small pebble beach in the end of the cave where seals used to rest.
It will not be long before you’ll be soaking up the sun in Stiniva Cove on Vis Island, a 600m long pebble beach enclosed by vertical cliffs.
Submerge yourself in Budikovac’s turquoise lagoon or let curiosity guide you past the extended pebble beach of Dalmatia’s only island with one inhabitant.
The Pakleni Islands are a collection of 14 untouched islets and the popular bay of Palmižana is at your disposal for the next 2.5 hours.
Here, there is a delicious selection of waterside restaurants where you can indulge in the freshest Adriatic catch before taking a refreshing dip in the azure waters.
Arrive in style to Hvar Town, located on Croatia’s sunniest island of the same name. Hvar is a favorite holiday destination for global celebrities and yachties but beyond all the glitz and glamour is a charming seaside town with eight centuries of architecture waiting to be explored.
Climb the stairs to the ancient Fortica Fortress wedged into the landscape above town and take a deep breath of the pine-scented breeze as you absorb the vistas of old town below and the Pakleni archipelago in the distance.
Embellishing the waterfront is the Arsenal, home of one of the first public theaters in Europe, and keep this as your point of reference before entering the labyrinthine backstreets of town where craft shops and cafes are tucked into ancient Venetian palaces.
