Private Boat Trip to the Dalmatian Coast Islands
The port of Split is a perfect place to begin a private boat trip to the nearby islands of Brač, Hvar, Vis or Solta. Brač is the nearest large island to Split – a patchwork landscape of rolling mountains, olive groves, vineyards, and palm lined harbour towns.
Many boat trips dock in the main town of Supertar where honey-hued houses with coloured shutters line a promenade of traditional restaurants. It’s a charming town to visit with beautiful churches, a smattering of museums and quaint pave side cafes and shops.
Alternatively, venture a little further to the quaint seaside town of Bol. Here, you can swim and sun worship on the world-famous Zlatni rat Beach with white sands and clear turquoise waters, visit Blaca Monastery, sip fine local wine and observe stone sculptures dotted around the town centre.
The neighbouring island of Hvar can also be reached in a little over an hour from Split. This lively island is famous for its history, rich culture and buzzing nightlife. During your trip, sample the signature dish of the island “gregada” – a hearty fish and potato stew, enjoy a day-time beach party or follow in the footsteps of ancient Greeks taking a stroll around Stari Grad.
