Boat Charter Route in Trogir, Split and the Dalmatian Islands

An Idyllic Island Boat Charter Route

If you plan to rent a boat in Trogir, then perfect! No need to alter this sailing route. However, if you are starting your boat charter in Split, you can swap day 1 and day 2 around.

Day 1: Port Trogir – Split (14.5 nm)

Set sail on your first day and head to Split where you can stroll amongst the Venetian palace ruins as you browse in boutiques and shops. Enjoy a delicious dinner at Bokeria Kitchen & Wine Bar, a restaurant with a brilliant corner location and delicious fresh-tasting food. This restaurants knows its wine, so order a bottle and sample some local Croatian wine! Split has a market in the centre to the east of the palace ruins and also an antique flea market further inland behind the town centre. The nightlife here is also vibrant—perfect if you want an opportunity to get your dancing shoes on!

We’re not surprised Split is on everyone’s travel list…

 

Day 2: Split – Milna, island of Brač (11 nm)

Milna is one of the safest bays on the whole of the island of Brač, though exposed to some north and north-westerly winds. This harbour is peaceful and has plenty of choice for something yummy to eat for dinner, as well as plenty of cafes on the eastern side of the harbour for a coffee and some breakfast in the morning. Get used to waking up in Croatian island utopia, you still have five days left!

Day 3: Milna – Komiža, island of Vis (29 nm)

Our boat charter route takes you to Komiža on day 3. This bay is situated on the western coastline of Vis island and is exposed to west and south-westerly winds. Although a small island town, Komiža is well known for its restaurants, wines and citrus fruit. Konoba BAK and Konoba Jasmina are popular restaurants in town. If you’re a bit of a wine connoisseur or simply fancy sampling some traditional Croatian wine, visit a wine cellar here to learn more about provincial wine.

Day 4: Komiža – Paklinski Otoci (20 nm)

On day 4, depart from Komiža and head to Paklinski Otoci, a group of islands in a beautiful blue lagoon setting situated to the southwest of Hvar. Our suggestion is mooring in the bay on the south coast, adjacent to Palmizana Marina on the north coast. In our suggested bay, Laganini Lounge Bar & Fish house is a fantastic restaurant. We also recommend Ristorante Meneghello and Zori Restaurant & Lounge. If you enjoy long walks and beautiful views, set foot on firm ground and explore the incredible landscape. It’s not every day that you find yourself in a deserted heaven!

Day 5: Paklinski Otoci – Stari Grad (17 nm)

Stari Grad—your sailing destination for day 5— possesses Croatia’s oldest town dating back to ancient times. This harbour is exposed to west winds but it located deep into the island of Hvar. It has many preserved stone building and cultural monuments. If there’s only one thing you do here, Tvrdalj Castle is that very beautiful thing.

Day 6: Stari Grad – Stomorska (Island Šolta) (16 nm)

Hop on over to the island of Šolta on your penultimate day of your boat charter. Stomorska’s harbour is sheltered from wind and an idyllic stop in a peaceful island village, where your chance to experience Dalmatian food awaits you. On the eastern side of the harbour, we thoroughly recommend Konoba Nevera and Pizzeria Volat. Lap up as much tranquil island atmosphere as possible before your return tomorrow!
