We will set sail for our first destination: the Golden Horn beach or “Zlatni Rat” in Croatian, located on Brač island, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and probably the most recognized symbol of the Adriatic coast. Famous for its shape shifting nature, the beach attracts visitors from all over the world. Enjoy 1 hour free time that you can spend swimming and snorkeling in the area or relaxing on the beach.
Our second destination will be Hvar, the queen of Croatian islands and famous getaway for jetsetters from all around the world. Apart from the strong nightlife game, this town has a lot more to offer, from amazing natural beaches and coves to the rich cultural heritage. Make the most of your 1.50 hours free time to wander the old street filled with history and ancient architecture to climb up the Fortica fortress for an outstanding view on the Hvar archipelago.
After exploring the town of Hvar, we will continue to the Pakleni islands, a collection of fourteen untouched islands that attract visitors for their hidden beaches, deserted lagoons and bays, Palmižana being the most famous of them. With 2 hours free time, we suggest you to enjoy the aquamarine blue waters or to take a walk along numerous paths in this little eco paradise. Or just go to the famous Laganini beach club in Palmižana to enjoy great cocktails and food.
After Pakleni islands we continue to our last stop Milna, small and picturesque fisherman village on the island of Brač famous among the sailors. For guests staying in Brac, the tour will end here, while we continue to Split, where the return is scheduled around 6:00pm.

The island of Brač is a place to plan a fantastic boat tour: here landscape, culture and history come together in a very special way. The name of the island, Brač, in Illyrian means “goat” and comes from the fact that this place was known for goats that in ancient times were ritual animals and therefore bred by most of the inhabitants. Sailing towards the island of Brač, we may encounter groups of dolphins that will accompany us for a stretch towards our destination. Once you arrive by boat on the island of Brač, you will feel the heady scents of Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation: according to a directive dating back to Venetian rule, no young man on the island of Brač could get married before planting a hundred olives trees. Another typical tradition of the island is the extraction of stone, which is present here in a generous quantity: suffice it to say that only the walls of the rural paths on the island of Brač have a volume of 7 million meters, the same amount of stone used for the Egyptian pyramids. With the stone extracted in the Brač quarries were built, among others, the Parliament in Budapest and part of the White House in Washington. If you have chosen the boat tour to the island of Brač, you will be fascinated by the beauty of this place.
Zlatni Rat beach is a very special place that stretches for about 300 meters near Bol on the southern coast of the island of Brač. Due to its special pointed shape and the beautiful coarse white sand and pebbles that characterises it, this part of the island is called Golden Horn (in Croatian Zlatni Rat). However, its shape changes with the changing tides, currents and wind that blows constantly here, so much so that it has also become a favourite destination for surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfer. Croatia’s Golden Horn beach is surrounded by a pine forest in which you can find the remains of a Roman villa with its swimming pool. Enjoying the beauty of this place, with its crystal clear waters, is hard work because this strip of land is often crowded with tourists, but with a boat tour to the Golden Horn you will appreciate one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe from a privileged position. You will have 1 hour to snorkel in a transparent sea, swim and sunbathe with the pine forest around you that, shaped by the wind, almost seems to bow to visitors.
The island of Lesina or Hear is considered one of the 10 most beautiful islands in the world. If you are wondering what to see in Hvar, know that it is a port and seaside town in Croatia famous for its jet setters and yachts. In fact, during the summer, Hvar is full of tourists and nightlife and you won’t find it difficult to meet any VIPs during your walk. But Hvar has been a strategic city among the islands of Dalmatia for thousands of years and is rich in culture, history, monuments and literature, as well as a spectacular landscape. During the boat tour to the island of Hvar, you will have free time to visit the town of Hvar, a jewel overlooking the Adriatic. Arriving in Hvar, you will reach the main square, the center of social life in the city, the largest in Dalmatia. From the square you will see St. Stephen’s Cathedral, dedicated to the city’s patron saint, whose bell tower is one of the most beautiful in all of Dalmatia. Then go north through the main city gate, called the Gate of Datallo and climb the stairs through the old town. Here you will walk through ancient alleys and palaces of the 15th and 16th century dating back to the Venetian rule of the island. Do you smell the scent of Mediterranean vegetation? Following it you will arrive at the Hvar fortress (Fortica foe the inhabitants), from where a breathtaking view of the Hvar archipelago and the Pakleni islands awaits you.
The Pakleni islands are a group of twenty islands located in the Hvar archipelago. Their name comes from the word “paklini”, a pine resin that was used in shipbuilding. Some islands of this archipelago are untouched and uninhabited, which is why it is known as a natural paradise. Others, such as Palmižana, are equipped for privileged tourists. The island of Palmižana is the most famous of the beaches and is characterised by sand and gravel just below a pine forest that makes it charming. Part of the island is naturist, like many other Croatian beaches. If you want to explore the Island of Palmižana, you will find many nature trails to see in this little corner of paradise. If you love to enjoy the landscape, take a bath but also have a drink or eat something, a very cool stop is the Laganini brach Club: here you can enjoy an aperitif overlooking the sea or eat fresh fish, such as Adriatic tuna.
Milna is a characteristic fishing village on the west coast of the island of Brač. Unlike the cities of the Riviera full of nightlife, Milna is small and charming, but well served: the whole population is engaged in fishing, boating or tourism. Stroll quietly through the streets of Milan among the shops and the welcome of the inhabitants, in total relaxation. The sea in this area is very clean and far from the chaos of unbridled tourism. If you are staying in Brač, your boat tour ends in Milan while we continue to Split.
