Here are some of the experiences we arranged for you that you should not miss while you’re here.
Explore Bisevo, Hver and Pakleni Islands by Private Motor Boat
Your first destination is the island of Biševo and visit to Modra Špilja (the Blue Cave) in the Balun Cove, accessible only by a boat. On a sunny day, when the sea is calm, sunbeams penetrate through an underwater opening and the effect of the sea bottom reflecting and illuminating the cave with azure color is incredible.
Continue to Pakleni Archipelago, located off the southwest coast of the island of Hvar, opposite the entrance to the Hvar town. The name is popularly translated as Hells’ islands (pakleni: hellish), but it originally derives from paklina, an archaic word, from which pakleni too is derived, that means “tar”, and in this case refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships that was harvested on these islands.
Blessed with 2724 hours of sunshine every year, the lavender island of Hvar is called ‘Croatian Madeira’. The island of Hvar is the only Croatian island listed among the top 10 islands in the world! The sunny days, the surrounding crystal blue waters with nearby seductive islands, ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, enchanting stone streets and old Venetian palaces of the proud town of Hvar, are some of the reasons why everybody today is talking about Hvar
Krka Waterfalls National Park
Private guided walking tour of Krka National Park (1-hour drive from Split) and Šibenik followed by exclusive wine pairing dinner at Pelegrini restaurant.
For such a small country, Croatia has 8 national parks, River Krka being a great highlight for visitors to the Dalmatian coast. With seven falls, the largest and most impressive being Skradinski buk; The Krka River is a karst phenomenon, carving a spectacular canyon out of the limestone, on its 70 kilometers journey from the foothills of Dinaric Alps, to the amazing estuary under the walls of historic Šibenik. Follow the winding wooden paths that traverse emerald pools, to viewpoints of the majestic series of falls, and even go for quick swim. An ethnic museum and shop is housed in the old mills near Skradinski buk.
