Spend some time enjoying peace and quiet
IMPORTANT REMARK: Although this route does not have any overnights in a marina we do recommend you visit one port or marina once or twice to charge the batteries or possibly the water tank as well. This route is very susceptible to weather conditions and those have to be pretty favorable.
Day 1: Split – Jorja bay (island of Solta) – 15 Nm
Your first stop is Jorja bay, just right in the middle of the island Šolta. The bay itself does not look very welcoming at first, but an enthusiastic local, Kike, has put much effort into restoring a fisherman’s shelter and turned it into a family-run tavern just for yachtsmen. He has also placed mooring lines for up to 8 boats at the same time. Jorja is well sheltered except of southerly winds.
Day 2: Velika Jorja – St. Klement – 14 Nm
Continue sailing in the direction of Hvar and Pakleni archipelago. Find a suitable anchoring spot in one of the bays of St. Clement’s island. Vinogradišće is the most popular one (and crowded so if you want to avoid the crowd steer clear of it). Ždrilci, on the western part of Marinkovac island, is very well sheltered and usually occupied by larger yachts. Which leaves you with Taršće, well sheltered from bura and northwesterly winds but not as much from southerly winds. You should anchor in the center of the bay at a depth of 6-13 m. The local restaurant Dionis offers a pleasant atmosphere and authentic menu (if you’ll be having dinner there bring your flashlight with you to ease your return aboard).
Day 3: St. Klement – Zaglav (island of Vis) – 12 Nm
The next stop is the island of Vis. Recharge your batteries in the port of Vis and then head out to explore the beauties of the island by day – Stoncica with the charming lighthouse and sandy beach, Stiniva – a small beach surrounded and protected by impressive rocks (pretty crowded with daily excursions coming all the way from Hvar or Split, so it might be a good idea to leave it for last), islands of Ravnik with the Green Cave or the beautiful blue lagoon of Budikovac island. Head to the Zaglav bay late afternoon and anchor there for the night. There are only a few houses here and a beautiful sandy beach.
Day 4: Zaglav – Zarace (island of Hvar) – 18 NM
Set course back to the island of Hvar. One suggestion is to drop into Sveta Nedjelja for some wine tasting in Zlatan otok restaurant and winery or for those seeking more action Sveta Nedjelja is also known for great free climbing rocks in the vicinity. The third option is just enjoying one of the most famous beaches on Hvar island – Dubovica. A spacious pebble beach is in perfect synchrony with the rustic-baroque villa of the Kasandrić family.
Day 5: Zarace – Tiha (island of Hvar) – 16 NM
Anchor in Stari Grad during the day to get some electricity and maybe replenish water. While you wait you might as well explore the UNESCO site of Stari Grad Plain or the picturesque streets of the first Greek settlement in the Adriatic. Head off to Tiha, an uninhabited bay for some real peace and quiet for the night.
Day 6: Tiha – Blaca (island of Brac) – 8 NM
Cross the channel in the morning and admire the stunning beach Zlatni rat in Bol just sailing by it. Your final destination for the day is the Popva vala (Priest's cove). Anchor the boat safely and add shorelines just to stay on the safe side. The Blaca hermitage (desert) is a 45 minutes hike and the interesting museum is open 9-17 in the high season and 9-15 in the off-season, every day except on Mondays. Bring sufficient amounts of water and suitable footwear and enjoy exploring the library, astronomical observatory, church, and monastery. Returning downhill towards the boat will be a piece of cake.
Day 7: Blaca – Milna – Split – 22 NM
Head to Milna to refuel and avoid long queues in Split and try to sail all the way to Split.
Total sailing distance: 105 NM
