After breakfast, sail to Šćedro island where you can explore idyllic peaceful coves. This isle is a protected nature reserve and has footpaths that cross the 8km long island if you wish to stretch your legs. There is an old abandoned village of Nastane and ruins of a monastery to discover. The bay is home to a colony of the rare and protected Pinna Noblis (giant mussel). These are easy to see on the seabed from the back of your yacht as the water is so clear.

Leave Korčula town early in the morning on the way to Vis island. Break up this full day of sailing with a stop in one of the secluded bays at the western end of Korčula Island to swim and unwind on the boat.

Sail around the island towards Komiža and stop at the Green Cave. Jump off the cliffs and swim into the cave, or drop the anchor and plunge into the crystal clear water.

When you get to Komiža, explore a different side to Croatia; visit the untouched village and enjoy the unique local food, where lobster is the specialty. This wonderful little town that is nestled in the middle of the Adriatic sea is situated at the base of Mount Hum (587m). It is a great view from the top, where you can find a small church and watch the sun go down. Take a taxi up if you don’t fancy the walk, there is a short path leading from the nearby road to the top (a stop here is also part of the military tour if you choose to do that).

On the way back to the marina, stop at a breath-taking clear water lagoon. Take a swim, finish your lunch and make the most of your last sailing day.
