When you have finished with the check-in process and buying groceries for your yacht, it is time to set the sails and leave Dubrovnik. Some 15 nautical miles northwest of ACI Marina Dubrovnik lies the island of Šipan. Šipan is a part of the Elaphiti Islands archipelago and is a favorite leisure destination in Dubrovnik region. The bay of Šipanska Luka provides a safe anchorage despite the muddy seabed, because this spot is pretty well-protected from all winds. You can also count on several berths on the city waterfront, while konoba (tavern) Kod Marka can offer you a buoy along with delicious authentic Dalmatian dinner. Booking in advance is mandatory. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and local specialties are available early in the morning on a small market in the center of the village. For those who do not like cooking on board, fine breakfast is served at Villa Dubravka. A relaxed morning or evening walk around Šipanska Luka brings you back to time when the nobility from Dubrovnik enjoyed their free time in their medieval mansions.
Keep to the northwestern coast and sail along the channel between the Mljet island and the Pelješac peninsula. After some 25 nautical miles you will reach a nice village called Pomena on Mljet. Safe and comfortable berths can be found on the waterfront of Hotel Odisej with safe mooring, fresh water and electricity. Taverns in the village offer delicious seafood and homemade wine. Walking or cycling to the Mljet National Park is a must.
The beautiful island of Korčula lies at a small distance from Pomena. Safe berths in Korčula town are located in ACI Marina Korčula at the very center of the town. Another option is to berth in Marina Lumbarda, less than 3 nautical miles south of Korčula town. It takes just a short bus or taxi drive to reach Korčula from Lumbarda. The old town core of Korčula is an open-air museum with its city walls made of stone, tiny streets and many art shops and taverns. It is also an alleged birthplace of the famous voyager and explorer Marco Polo. Nighttime lovers can start their night at Fish’N’Go cocktail bar just across the marina and continue the night at one of the town’s numerous taverns or enjoy good jazz sounds at Servantes or Akademija bar. An open-air dancing floor and several night bars are also in the vicinity.
We suggest you spend this day exploring the archipelago of the Lastovo island. Allow yourself some lazy hours anchored in one of its numerous coves and enjoy swimming and snorkeling in turquoise waters. Do not be surprised by a visit from rangers because the entire area is declared a natural park. Good anchorage and safe berths are available at the Skrivena Luka bay on the south side of the island. The name of this bay, literally translated from the Croatian, means “hidden port” – a definite proof that this is a safe place. A visit to the Struga lighthouse on the south side of the Bay is recommended for the beauty of the view, especially the sunset. Suggested destination for gourmands would be Konoba Santor at the Zaklopatica bay on the northern side of the island.
It is time to leave the open sea and get closer to the mainland, but not too fast. Let’s visit the island of Vis first. The port of Vis is located in a wide bay and provides more than enough berths on the waterfront, as well as numerous buoys within the bay. Before entering the port, you can take a swim break in the nearby Stončica Bay just next to a mighty lighthouse. The nightlife in Vis is the most vibrant in Fort George night club located in the medieval fortress on the west side of the Vis harbor. You can also visit the inner part of the island to explore genuine gastronomic and wine offer of the island.
Some would say that dessert comes at the end of the trip, so the last destination before reaching the base would be the town of Hvar. It is a gem among the Central Dalmatian islands and the absolute summer hotspot. Since the town port is very busy during the season, it is recommended to book your berth in advance, though it is much more pleasant to dock your yacht in ACI Marina Palmižana on the Paklinski Islands, just across the Hvar town. Transfer to the port is well organized by fast motorboat shuttles. You can spend the day swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing anchored in one of the coves on the Paklinski Islands. In the evening, you can come to Hvar. The town abounds with taverns and restaurants, and is suitable for every kind of visitors. From low-budget to exclusive parties, fun never ends in Hvar. During the day, you can enjoy in Hula Hula Hvar beach bar. After that, you can move to Carpe Diem in the Stipanska bay on the Paklinski Islands.
The last day on this one-way trip ends in our base in Rogač on the island of Šolta. Prior to arriving to Rogač, you can take a nice swim break in the Livka bay on the southeast end of Šolta or in Nečujam just next to Rogač. Fine bites are served at Konoba Pasarela close to the base. Also, transfer to Maslinica can be organized if you want to spend the night in the tiny and calm fishermen village, where a medieval fortress and a monastery have been refurbished and turned into an exclusive hotel with a nice marina. Ask for more information at the office in our base. Rogač is connected with Split by ferry and catamaran lines. We can organize transport to the Split Airport by a speedboat, or from the Split bus terminal which is located just a few steps away from the Split Port.
