Included excursion

Boat trip to Blue cave & 3 island

This unique day on the sea starts with the majestic Green and Blue caves and includes Vis, Hvar and the Pakleni islands. First, we will visit Green Cave where we will get a chance to swim inside and enjoy the emerald light show. Then we will visit Blue Cave, one of the best-known natural beauty spots on the Adriatic, known for the glowing blue light that appears at certain times of the day. Our trip continues to the legendary island of Vis, where musical Mamma Mia is filmed. There is an hour of free time to explore authentic fisherman village Komiža and to have lunch.

The adventure continues to Stiniva beach known for its clear water and sheltered atmosphere. After swimming we continue to one of the most popular bays of Paklinski island, Palmižana beach, and enjoy in cocatils and dancing in the Laganini lounge beach bar. Our last stop before arriving back to Brač is at island Hvar where we will have the opportunity to explore hilltop fortress, 13th-century walls and Renaissance streets of this Adriatic pearl.

 

Cooking class with locals

You will get to visit an authentic village out off-the-beaten-path and get chance to meet a local family and to prepare the traditional cake. They will take us for a walk around the village, introduce us to local history, tradition and importance of the cake for this village. Then we will go back to their kitchen and prepare a cake. While the cake is baking, we will admire the sunset on the hilltop terrace and enjoy homemade cheese, prosciutto, anchovies, and local wine.

 

Golden Cape and Bol

One afternoon we will visit the paradise beach Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), one of the most beautiful beaches on the Croatian coastline and at the same time the most representative panorama of Bol. This location is a protected natural area and it’s very tip changes the shape due to the influence of winds, waves, and sea currents, making it look different all the time. If you ever dreamed about trying surfing or kiteboarding or SUP, you are on the perfect spot! After Golden Cape, we will visit the village Bol and relax by the sea with a glass of local wine, watching the sunset and the world passing by.

 

Hiking to Vidova Gora

You will visit the highest peak of Croatian island (778 meters) and admire incredible views of Zlatni Rat and Bol below, as well as the nearby island of Hvar and Vis. Perfect spot for unforgettable holiday photos.

 

Museum of island Brač & Explore authentic villages

One afternoon, you will get to visit Škrip, the oldest inhabited village on Brac (over 3,000 years) with lovely old buildings and fascinating history. Its first recorded inhabitants were the Illyrians, and their ancient walls can still be discerned in Skrip. It is also reputed to be the birthplace of Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine. The museum spans both local archaeology and ethnography and is maintained by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable curator.

 

Retreat location

Brač is a Mediterranean island famous for its deeply indented coves, which form natural harbors and are adored by sailors and yachters. In one of those harbors settled a peaceful village Povlja, which is a base for this retreat. The village is located outside of the tourist rush, slow paced, perfect to enjoy sublime scenery and scents of Mediterranean herbs and pine trees.

Brač is bestowed with Croatian symbols such as Vidova Gora, one of the most beautiful viewpoints among Croatian islands and the highest peak on Adriatic islands. Another Brač treasure is the Golden Cape. It is a natural white pebbled formation which sticks out of the sea like a tongue. These striking natural properties and a relaxed vibe of the island’ people make Brač a very popular destination by windsurfers, sports lovers, and adventure seekers.
