Take the direct southerly route from Split to the old town of Hvar. The harbour is not very well protected and very crowded during the season. Once you have good weather conditions It is suggested to reserve a berth at the harbour captain in advance. A good plan B would be to moore your boat in the ACI marina Palmizana, a very nice and safe place to stay overnight. The marina offers shuttle boats which will bring you to the old town of Hvar and back. Hvar offers lots of beautiful and historic places such as the famous Spanish fortress, the Cathedral of St Stephen such as the old theater from 1612. Kalavanda Bar close to the cathedral is the perfect place for an aperitivo before going to Macondo restaurant for dinner.
Sail to Vinogradisce which is a cove on the southern part of Pakleni islands, not more than 30 minutes away from Hvar or Palmizana. It is a nice place for a swim and if you like a Cote d´Azur style lunch in chic Laganini beach club. The afternoon leg to Vis is about 10nm. The harbour is safe and offers electricity and water. Vis spent much of ist recent history serving as a Yugoslav military base and was opened for the public only in 1989. This is why Vis remained rather untouched so far. The highlights are the old towns of Vis and Komiza, the Stiniva cove such as the Blue Cave on Bisevo island. If you want to go out for luch or dinner our suggestion is the Pojoda restaurant. Try the home style appetizers which can easily shared.
The trip back to Split will be around 35nm if you choose to make a stop in wonderful Krknjas cove on the island of Drvenik Veli which we suggest. If you prefer to stay in Vis longer go for the direct route to Split which will be slightly less than 30nm. If you have some time left it is needless to say that Split has many highlights to offer one of them beeing the absolutely stunning Diokletian Palace.
