Activities Available on our Sailing Holiday Leaving from Split

Take a look at the activities for the curious, the active, the adventurer and water sports enthusiast available on our Sailing holidays!

Here’s an idea of some of the activities available on each island that we visit on our Split Sailing holiday.

We tailor tours to enable you to see the best of the Croatian Islands. While you also have plenty of time for wining and dining in the many restaurants that are dotted in the harbours and towns that you visit.

When sailing between the islands we stop off at secluded bays, enabling you to dive into the clear blue sea, snorkel and relax.

We also have carefully created an itinerary to ensure there is enough time to explore the islands and participate in island excursions.

Because, did you know in addition to sailing there are so many other activities to enjoy while on our tours, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Brac Island

Activities on our sailing holiday

Jeep Safari (Cost on application/ must be pre-booked)

A Jeep Safari of Brac Island enables you to take in the best the island has to offer.

Visit a stone quarry, Olive Oil Museum, and the Blaca Monestary.

Drive to the highest peak on the island, the Vidova Gora, and soak up the views overlooking the most photographed beach in Croatia, the Zlatni Rat.


Visit one of the Adriatic’s’ most distinctive beaches, the Zlatni Ra. Watch it changing in formation depending on the tide and the wind. This is the most photographed beach in Croatia, and for good reason!

Hvar Island

Activities on our sailing holiday

Hire bikes and cycle the Stari Grad plain. A UNESCO world heritage centre, an agricultural landscape set up by the Greek colonists in 4th century BC. This natural reserve of grapes and olives has been maintained to the present day, and provides breathtaking scenery, making for a beautiful cycle ride from either Hvar Town or Stari Grad.

Explore Hvar Town where stunning Venetian architecture, ancient fortresses, and whitewashed walls are illuminated each afternoon by outstanding sunsets.

Take in the view from the Yvrdava Forticar viewpoint overlooking the old town out towards the glistening turquoise waters of the Pakleni Islands in the distance.

On your exploration to the Hvar Fort you pass through the Hvarska pjaca, or St. Stephens Square.

The oldest in Dalmatia, St Stephens Square, includes the Cathedral with its beautiful bell tower.

A stroll from Hvar’s riva is the stunning 15th-century Franciscan monastery sitting on the prettiest little cove. Housing a rich display of museum exhibits and a beautiful painting of The Last Supper thought to be the work of celebrated 16th-century Venetian painter Matteo Ingoli.

To see a more rustic, laid back pace of life, away from the hustle and bustle of Hvar Town we stop at Stari Grad town on our sailing yacht tour.

In Stari Grad stroll up the seafront promenades lined with old Venetian Renaissance buildings, bars, restaurants, and colourful souvenir stalls.

Shop and sample the local homemade products in the Srinjo kola (Middle St.)

Visit the Tvrdalj Palace, the summer house of the Croatian poet Petar Hektorovic. It’s beautiful gardens and fish pond, and the picturesque Skor Square make for Instagram worthy photographs.

Hike Glavica Hill. Climbing through the Mediterranean pine forest and relax watching the stunning sunset whilst looking out towards Brac Island. The walk is a short 20-30 minutes out of town towards Rudina and is well signposted.

As watersports enthusiasts, our sailing holidays would not be complete without the option to engage in as many different types of watersports as we can on our Island cruise.

A half-day sea kayak from Hvar Towns Krizna Luka’s beach to the surrounding Pakleni Islands is a joy not to be missed!

Journey through narrow straits passing by small pebbled beaches and sheltered coves. Stop for a swim, snorkel and relax before arriving at the thick pine woods of Pakleni. At Pakleni enjoy lunch or a snack, before returning to Hvar Town.

Korcula Island

Activities on our sailing holiday

Korcula’s Old Town is known as ‘Little Dubrovnik’ due to its Venetian style red-roofed buildings. Visit St Marks Cathedral and climb the Bell Tower for a 360 degrees helicopter view over the town and Adriatic sea.

It is rumoured that Marco Polo, was born here and a visit to a replica of the house where he lived, plus the Marco Polo museum makes for an interesting historical tour.

Around the corner from Korcula’s Old Town a day can be spent relaxing on one of the beaches in Lumbarda. The only place in Korcula with sandy beaches making it a fun and safe environment for children.

Adults will enjoy the delicious locally grown wine, Grk (the only place this wine is produced in Croatia).

From Lumbarda beach enjoy the magnificent Croatian sunsets on an evening Kayak tour.

Paddleboarding, windsurfing and scuba diving are also available here.

Lumbarda is an artist’s haven, so shoppers will enjoy admiring the many galleries, studios, and exhibitions containing handmade art and sculptures.

There is a network of footpaths from Lumbarda for walkers to hike, weaving through the vineyards and leading to bays away from the usual tourist footfall.

For the dedicated watersports groups, we travel to Viganj on the Peljesac Peninsula.

Here we offer taster sessions in Kiteboarding and Windsurfing.

The experienced will enjoy testing their skills against the Mistral winds, which travels through the sea between Korcula and Viganj on a regular basis.

This is one of the top Kitesurfing spots in Croatia.

Vis Island

Activities on our sailing holiday

There are many coves and secluded bays for us to explore on reaching Vis Island, while Vis Town itself sits in a beautiful horseshoe bay.

Enjoy the many restaurants created within the walls of ruined palazzos, 17th century architecture and low-key vibe as you meander through the pathways that lead to the hillside beyond.

On neighbouring Biševo island, a series of caves have pools of iridescent blue light caused by the sun reflecting from the floor of the seabed below. This is an excursion not to be missed.
