Stari Grad and Hvar (Hvar)
The island of Hvar, which is said to be the sunniest and the most visited island by tourists, is a constant attraction for boaters. Stari Grad and Hvar give off the traces of history which have roots in the ancient Greek civilisation, and yet the history which is interwoven with advanced cultural, sport and recreational entertainment. If you happen to be on one of the beautiful nearby Pakleni islands, try not to bypass the famous "Dagmar" restaurant in port Palmizana on the islet of St. Clement.
Komiza and Vis (Vis)
A tourist or visitor who has gone around the island of Vis, cannot help longing for spending the rest of his life there, or at least coming back every summer.

Travelling from Split towards south-west, after a 9 n/m voyage you will reach the "first authentic Dalmatian island", as Solta is called by locals. From time immemorial, people from Split have been spending their week-ends there, at the biggest cove Necujam, probably because of its natural beauty. Five hundred years ago the first Croatian poets took refuge in it, and became inspired by it. Nowadays it is a favored resort for the most boaters from Split.
The Kornati islands, islets and cliffs certainly are from the most scattered island range in the Mediterranean. In contrast to the degradated and poor land, the underwater life around the Kornatis is one of the richest area in the Adriatic, including as regards fauna. This is why they were proclaimed a national park, and it is no wonder they have become the most exclusive destination for eager boaters. It is hard to suggest a route to follow, and it is even harder to place it in date as the Kornatis ask for a complete relaxation, offering a unique mixture of adventure, boating skill and hedonism. It is strongly recommended not to put an accurate map out as what is awaiting you is a labyrinth of cliffs and islets. If you drop anchor at Piskera marina you will get detailed instructions for further sailing and anchorage by bying one-day ticket for sightseeing the National Park. As you can easily find a restaurant offering excellent food, we recommend you some of them: "Piccolo" in Vela Smokvica, "Kvarto" at Striznja inlet, "Ante" in Vrulja, and if your wish is to taste the best European lobster, you need to go to the restaurant "Sabuni".
Just behind the lighthouse on the wooded Gradine peninsula, we are about to sail into the Rogoznica cove. This well protected cove has always been used as an important port - once a Greek colony, then under the rule of Venice a basis for guerilla boats. Nowadays one of the best organized and spacious marinas - "Frapa" marina dominates over other objects in this little town. From Gradine peninsula 9 berths in a row followed to the very end of the cove where a reception desk and other facilities are situated.

Okljuke and Pomena (Mljet)
Although it is impossible to single out the most beautiful island on the Adriatic, lots of people are prone to decide on the "green Mljet". Ever since Dubrovnik was established as a city, Mljet has always been considered as a part of it as well as the best holiday resort.
Despite the strong winds which protect it from the invasion of unexperienced boaters, the island of Mljet is nevertheless a true paradise for boaters and one has to make an effort to reach it. The most protected cove is Okuklje, in the norh-east side of the island, called Porto Cammera by Italians. The most western port, as a part of the National Park is Pomena. From the port you need only a ten minutes walk through the pine wood to get to the lakes, which take your breath away. A benedict monastery, built in 12th century, redecorated for tourist purposes now, has been throughout centuries a nursery of literary work, and perfectly completes the magic of this scenery. If you want to treat yourself to a true local specialty - boar meat - we recommend you the restaurant "Nina".
Korcula and Vela Luka (Korcula) Owing to a quick industrial and tourist development, the island of Korcula is the most inhabited island. Whoever decides to sail around it, a 60 n/m route is to be sailed. However, if you prefer sightseeing, do not miss to spend a night in KorËula, situated in the east or at Vela Luka in the western side of the island. There is no town or island on the Adriatic which underwent so many battles, revolutions and changes as the city of Korcula did. Even those who are not fond of history, will be surely charmed once they have been captured with the beauty within the ancient city walls. One of the most controversial theory goes that Marco Polo was born there.
Vela Luka treasures some other, artistic values. Sculpture enthusiasts are going to be surprised on visiting a local museum and looking at a Henry Moore's sculpture who once, in the early 1960s, gave his contribution to a local artistic colony. The little restaurant "Pod bore" offers many specialties and provides for an excellent service.
