Croatia yacht charter itinerary 

Day 1: Spilt - Supetar 

Sail away from Split and onto Supetar - the capital of Brac island. Supetar's name is derived from St Peter, and was first used in 1423. Located on the northern side of Brac and surrounded by thick pine forest, Supetar is a great introduction to the beautiful Dalmatian coastline, and only a short hop from Split - so you can really make the most of your first night. Supetar has a population of a little over 3000 inhabitants, and is small enough that all sights can be reached by a leisurely walk. Supetar's history goes back as far as the Roman colonisation which took place around 100BC.

Day 2: Supetar - Vis

Vis' history extends back as far as ancient times, when it was used by Stone Age settlers due to its strategic location for trade and navigation. Nowadays, you can explore the many fortresses, tunnels, and warehouses from the military period as these are now attractions for tourists. Alternatively you can hire a bike or scooter and explore Vis from the saddle - taking in the beautiful scenery along the way.

Day 3: Vis - Komiza 

Leave Vis and sail around the island to Komiza. A small town on the southern edge of Vis island, Komiza is a small settlement set at the foot of a spectacular mountain range - its terracotta roofs and quaint harbour make for many gorgeous photos against such a beautiful backdrop. Komiza is the nearest town to the island of Bisevo, home to the spectacular natural phenomenon that is the Blue Caves.

Day 4: Komiza - Hvar

After spending time uncovering the rich past on Croatia's furthest inhabited island, set sail for Hvar. Famous for its lavender production, sun-soaked days, gorgeous cobbled streets, and buzzing, vibrant nightlife, Hvar never disappoints. Climb up the Spanjola Fortress and be snap-happy of the iconic view over Hvar - also a great place to watch the town bask in the orangey glow of sunset. Hvar has plenty of waterfront cafes and local restaurants.

Day 5: Hvar - Stari Grad

Situated on the northern side of Hvar island, Stari Grad is the oldest town in Croatia, dating back to 384 BC. Its name literally means "Old Town" in Croatian. The town boasts an attractive network of narrow streets and small squares, with plenty of restaurants and small bars around the harbour. A perfect destination for a chilled out day after taking in the electric atmosphere of Hvar Town. Enjoy a wine-tasting excursion from Stari Grad, taking in a vineyard in the middle of Stari Grad's UNESCO- protected Ager wine field, where you can sample locally made cheese, wine and olive oil.

Day 6: Stari Grad - Bobovisca

Few have heard of Bobovisca, and even fewer have been, but this small village located on the island of Brac is indeed a real hidden gem. Situated in the pine-covered Vicja Luka valley, you'll fall so in love with its peaceful, scenic surroundings and pristine turquoise water that you'll struggle to keep this one a secret. A town of only 70 inhabitants

Day 7: Bobovisca - Split

Last day of holidays on Nirvana, last breakfast and time for check out of your boat.
