Lotte's experience with sailing in Croatia
Hi, I'm Lotte! Last summer I went on holiday to Croatia. For 7 days, I sailed past the most beautiful islands and bays. Or well, the skipper did. I was busy sunbathing on the foredeck ;). In this blog, I’ll talk about the experience, itinerary, and activities.
This sailing trip was organised by The Sail Trip. You can book this trip for 2 to 10 people, including a sailboat, skipper, etc. I shared a cabin with a friend and was on the 'mixed boat', where all pairs stayed. You can also book a sailboat for a family or an entire group of friends. Sailing experience is not required!
The sailing trip started in the port of Trogir. After a welcome party, this was the first night sleeping on a sailboat. I really had to get used to all the rocking at the beginning!
The next morning, we set sail for our first destination: Bobovišća.
Bobovišća is a beautiful town in Brač and has only 70 inhabitants. We anchored in the bay and spent the whole afternoon supping, swimming, and snorkelling. The views here were stunning! In the evening, we ate at a restaurant serving authentic Croatian food with a live performance by locals.
After a good night's sleep, we set sail early for our next destination: Stari Grad. Stari Grad is a historic town on the island of Hvar. Besides admiring the beautiful nature, we had a wine tasting here. We tasted 3 wines with accompanying appetisers. To be honest: I didn't really like any of the wines. The wines were completely natural, so obviously that tastes different. However, the experience itself was a lot of fun!
The next place we sailed to was Bol, characterised by the beach with its pointed shape. You can do many different watersports here, including jet skiing and kite- and windsurfing. You'll also find an open-air club, located a bit higher. This is a super cool location for a night out! If you make it as late (or early ;)) as us, you can enjoy a beautiful sunrise in the harbour among all the sailing ships and yachts.
The next morning, we sailed further to a small bay next to Hvar harbour. Hvar harbour itself is very expensive in terms of moorings, hence we did not moor there. After an afternoon of supping and swimming, we took a rib (a kind of combination between an inflatable motorboat and a speedboat) to Hvar City in the evening. There was an evening fair and we had delicious Japanese food and cocktails.
The sailing trip ended back in Trogir harbour. Apart from the sailing trip, I spent 2 more nights in Split. This city is also highly recommended! You can have a super fun night going out in Central the Club and visit the promenade and all the cute small streets during the day.
In short, this was a fantastic holiday. I enjoyed the great weather, the beautiful nature and the fun parties! Has this blog inspired you to also go on an adventure abroad? Then take a look at all our vacancies!
