Split Sailing Route – Croatia Sailing Itinerary
What to Expect from Sailing in Split
Split is Croatia’s second-largest city, the biggest coastal city, and an important maritime and sailing center. You will be able to enjoy a cheerful atmosphere that is right in the middle of both tradition and modernity. Oh, and it is one of the best romantic destinations in Croatia.
As you walk into the famous Diocletian’s Palace, you will be greeted by many bars, restaurants, and shops, all thriving amid the old atmospheric walls that form almost half the old town of Split.
To top it all off, Split has a unique picturesque backdrop with its dramatic coastal mountains that perfectly complement the view of the turquoise waters of the Adriatic.
If you want to know when to visit Croatia, it is best to choose one of the summer months.
Day 1: Split – Šolta
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Split, Croatia, and get to the marina where your desired yacht is waiting for you. Your check-in procedure for hopping aboard the boat will be at 5 PM. Then, depending on the weather conditions and sunset hours, you may choose to spend the night in the Split archipelago or head to the island of Šolta.
Day 2: Šolta – Vis
Whether you come to Šolta on your first day or on the next day’s morning, you may choose to moor in Rogač, Maslinica, or Stomorska. Šolta Island is a rather quiet island known in the nautical world for its tranquility and beautiful bays where you can swim and sunbathe under the warm Croatian sun. Once ready, head to the island of Vis.
Day 3: Vis – Korčula
Komiža is a picturesque fisherman’s town on the colorful island of Vis with the sunniest amount of days in a year, hundred-year-old carob trees, stone houses, medicinal Mediterranean plants, and vineyards. And here is a fun fact for you – Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again The Musical was filmed on Vis Island. You would never tell, wouldn’t you?
Your next sailing leg will also be a bit longer to reach the island of Korčula.
Day 4: Korčula – Lastovo
Korčula Island has magnificent sunsets that you can watch in secluded bays, such as Orlanduša, Vela Pržina, or Vaja. The island is widely known as the birthplace of Marco Polo and has exquisite cuisine, so make sure to visit one of the recommended restaurants. In the evening, stroll around the cobblestone streets and enjoy the breeze of the fresh Adriatic air.
Lastovo is a remote island of untouched nature, which is why it is also an official nature park in Croatia. Around 70 % of Lastovo Island is covered in forests. The island has a rich wildlife and marine life – it is home to sea corals, dolphins, and sea turtles.
Day 5: Lastovo – Hvar
Hvar Island, the Queen of the Dalmatian islands. The island offers dense Mediterranean nature, rich tradition and architecture in Stari Grad, and lively nightlife in Hvar Town.

A long and beautiful day of sailing ahead of you!
