Tour program of the Blue Lagoon, Šolta and Milna boat trip:
Meeting point at 9:15am in Trogir at Ulica kralja Tomislava 16.
Our first stop, approximately 20 minutes away from Trogir, is the famous Blue Lagoon, on Drvenik Veli island, between the two Krknjaši islands. Here you will have 1.5 hours free time for some morning swimming and snorkeling. The beach at the Blue Lagoon is very popular and renowned among people thanks to its turquoise color and beautiful nature around it. Enjoy it!
We will continue to our next location, one of the most beautiful bays and the largest one on Šolta: Nečujam bay. The very last corner of the bay hides a small surprise: just underneath the surface you can see the blurred form of a sunken wooden ship which makes this bay the perfect place for swimming and snorkeling.
The second stop on Šolta island will be the village of Stomorska, the oldest coastal village on the island. The view of the picturesque waterfront, stunning beaches and fishermen selling their catch in the early morning right by an exclusive yacht docked nearby, seems like something one can only see in a postcard. We suggest you to have lunch here in one of the restaurants looking out onto the waterfront.
Right after lunch, with a short boat ride we will reach the third and last island: Brač. Explore the picturesque fisherman’s village of Milna and sample a glass of Dalmatian wine in a traditional wine cellar.
We all need at least one day like this in the year…enjoy it until the end, which will be in Trogir at 6:30pm.

On the island of Drvenik Veli (or big Zirona in english), we meet the bay of Krknjaši, known as the Blue Lagoon. Not to be confused with another equally famous Blue Lagoon in Croatia which is located on the island of Budikovac, near the island of Vis. The sea in this cove in bog Zirona is so transparent that you can see sea urchins and dolphins: snorkelling here will be a real pleasure for the eyes. The sandy bottom of the Blue Lagoon also makes it pleasant to swim with the children before continuing towards the island of Šolta and the village of Milna.
The island of Šolta lies between the island of Drvenik Veli (or big Zirona) and the island of Brac (or Brač) and is the thirteenth largest island in Croatia. It has just 1500 inhabitants and is just under 60 km² in size. Šolta is less well known that nearby Hvar and Brač, making it ideal for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The vegetation is Mediterranean and excellent oils and wines are produced here. In Šolta, in 295 d.C., the emperor Diocletian instituted the Baths, but even earlier (in the 4th century b. C.) was known to the Greeks as Olynta, while other findings show that it was already inhabited during the Bronze Age. From the 7th century onwards the island became the property of the Split municipality, which was interested in its timber and rich agricultural products from the area. On the island of Šolta it is interesting to visit two places: Nečujam bay and the seaside town of Stomorska. This island, in fact, is not only a destination for tourists looking for beautiful beaches and sun, but also for culture and local traditions, such as wine. Our fist stop on this island will be at Nečujam bay. Nečujam is a corner of paradise with eight hidden coves. Its magic, five hundred years ago, enchanted the poet Marco Marulo who decided to invite the nobility of nearby Split to this oasis of peace. Today the beach attracts mainly hikers and diving enthusiasts. The seabed of Šolta, in fact, is home to a rich and varied underwater life, including numerous species of fish and molluscs. Here has its habitat the monk seal and, if you are lucky, you can spot colonies of dolphins. Snorkeling in the Nečujam bay is an experience not to be missed.
Stomorska is located in the eastern part of the island of Šolta: here you can take a walk through the shops on the promenade and have lunch in one of the many restaurants that fill the village. The coastal town is the oldest port on the island and it is here that city life takes place. The sailors, who are the majority on the island, today own entire fleets of sailboats that were once used to transport wine and other treasures. Fishing and tourism are obviously the most developed sectors of the economy. Every day there is a wide selection of freshly caught fish and the fish market is located near the village. Once docked in this village, you can eat in the typical “konoba”, usually family-run taverns, which will allow you to taste different fresh fish specialities. There are several typical quality products such as extra virgin olive oil, indigenous Dobricic red wine and wild rosemary flower honey. If you are also wondering what to eat in Stomorska, remember that you are in a fishing village, so try to privilege fish. Fish soup, for example, is a very common dish that is prepared with fresh fish from the Adriatic, some olive oil, garlic, celery, parsley and rice. Another food from Dalmatia that makes your mouth water is brudet, which is fish broth. It’s usually served with polenta. To prepare a good broth you must have different types of fish and shellfish. You can also use scampi and crabs. Do not forget the seafood risotto or black risotto, made of cuttlefish and squid or the salted pilchard typical of Dalmatia, perhaps accompanied by lots of local red wine to quench the thirst.
One of the main attractions of Croatia, along with the sea, is the tasting of Croatian wines. Croatia is very famous worldwide for its wines: it is no coincidence that in 2016 it won more than 63 medals in the Decanter World Wine Awards and that the readers of the American newspaper Usa Today and 10Best.com declared Croatia one of the 10 best regions in the world to visit for its wine. As many as 130 indigenous grape varieties grow in Croatia due to the climatic and geographical diversity of the area. Croatian wines, both white and red, are gaining a reputation similar to French, Californian, Chilean and German wines, which is why more and more trips to Croatia include tasting in local wineries.
The majority of Croatian wine production is white wine (67%), while red wines account for 32% of total production. White wine dominates the continental wine area, while red wine dominates the coastal wine region. There are many wineries in different parts of Croatia that produce wines with distinctive characteristics. Among the best wines in Croatia are Pošip, Babić, Graševina, and Dingač. Pošip is a yellow white wine and is the first Croatian white wine with a protected geographical origin. It is characterised by a high percentage of alcohol (13 to 14.5%) and the aroma of dried figs and apricots. This Croatian wine is recommended with fish, shellfish and white meat. Among red wines, on the other hand, Babić is well known for its fruity aroma. Usually this type of wine is recommended in combination with the famous Dalmatian ham, more mature cheese, “pašticada" and grilled meat. Graševina is one of the most popular white wines in Croatia, recognisable by its green-yellow colour, dry tasted fruity and floral aroma. Finally there is Dingač, the most famous Croatian wine, known as “the king of all Croatian wines”. The colour of this wine rages from dark red to purple. Its taste is bitter and there is a fruity aroma.
The tour takes place in a motor boat with a maximum of 12 people on board. The comfortable boat and the small group of guests, allows you to fully enjoy this beautiful boat tour with local wine tasting.
