- One of Croatia’s finest natural wonders
- See one of Europe’s first public theatres
- Culture and spectacular scenery in abundance
This full-day island hopping tour makes for a fantastic excursion from Split, full of jaw-droppingly gorgeous scenery, ancient cultural highlights, and the chance to take a dip inside the famous Green Cave. Travel by stylish speedboat off the Dalmatian coast, headed toward the Blue Cave on Biševo Island, where the sun’s rays turn the water inside a stunning shade of blue. Then enjoy a shaded swim inside the Green Cave, before heading on to the Pakleni islands, 14 untouched islets, where you can purchase a delicious seafood lunch from the freshest Adriatic catch, before exploring Hvar Town.
Croatia’s most sunsplashed island, Hvar is a hangout of choice for celebrities and yacht-y types, but beyond the glamour there are eight centuries of fascinating history to be explored. Begin by climbing the stairs to the epic Fortica Fortress, and drink in the pine-scented air as you take in the stunning panoramas over the old town and the Pakleni archipelago. You can see the Hvar Public Theatre, built in the early 17th century and thought to be one of the oldest in Europe, wander twisty backstreets and pause for coffee or a refreshing beer, before heading back to the boat. We think this Croatia gift experience is an absolute must when in Split.
