Itinerary

 Elafiti Islands

The tour starts from the small bay of Slano and goes towards the Elafiti Islands. The village of Slano is located on the northwest side of Dubrovnik, 30 kilometers away. The Elafiti Archipelago consists of 14 islands. Most of them are uninhabited, except the large islands of Šipan, Lopud, and Koločep. Šipan is the largest of the group and has been a traditional rural destination for many of Dubrovnik's aristocratic families. Car-free Lopud is known for its stone houses and exotic park rich in botanical species from around the world. Koločep is full of olives, orchards, and pine trees. The entire island can visit on foot. Precious cultural monuments, spectacular beaches, and lush vegetation are typical elements of these three islands. We will sail to hidden lagoons where you can enjoy diving and swimming in crystal clear water. After the day of enjoying the sun and exploring the archipelago, we will anchor and spend the night in the port of Šipan or Lopud.

 Dubrovnik - Trsteno

The second day of our sailing adventure involves enjoying one of the magical sandy beaches on Lopud Island, Šunj. The forest and the sea surround the beach, which makes it even more extraordinary. After jumping, swimming, and snorkeling in the beautiful blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, we continue our voyage to Dubrovnik. The best way to truly see the beauty and glory of the city walls is from the sea. Another remarkable place to visit is the Trsteno Arboretum, the oldest arboretum in the world. It is also the oldest Croatian monument of landscape architecture. The arboretum covers an area of 69 acres with a broad botanical collection brought over time by sailors from their faraway journeys. After exploring Renaissance garden with the villa, neo-romantic park, and natural vegetation, we will sail back to our starting point, the hamlet of Slano.
