From intriguing monuments and seductive coasts to virgin beaches, this gorgeous Adriatic country awaits you to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime.

Day 1 – Split – Trogir

Embark your swish luxury yacht in Split Marina, just in time to admire the sunset as you cruise to Trogir for around 2 hours. After a gourmet dinner prepared by your private chef followed by a restful night at anchor, you’ll have the opportunity to wander around the ancient town of Trogir the next morning.

Swim in the translucent waters of Krka River, or soak in the history with a visit to the Franciscan Monastery tucked away on a small island – the choice is all yours.

The 3 millennia old city is studded with artistic gems and serves as a living museum. See how the Romans lived in the beautifully preserved Forum, see the medieval St. Donatus Church, or get the 360 vistas of the aquamarine horizons when you climb the Bell Tower.

This picturesque island was mercifully spared from mass tourism and will dazzle you with untamed exotic looking beaches where if you’re lucky, you’ll have the sunkissed sand all to yourself. The main town boasts Slanica, a golden beach with the views of Kornati Islands, the idyllic Betina village has Kosirina, a secluded oasis where you’ll be shaded by the fragrant olive groves and pine trees, while the uninhabited Biscaggia Islet gives away the feeling of a remote Amazon beach.

After some aquatic fun, why not relax with a cocktail in hand while your captain takes you to Rogoznica, once a sleepy fisherman’s village that quickly transformed into a jetsetter mecca with a chic marina. This romantic town owes its popularity to the natural harbour that offers excellent protection from the winds, once giving shelter to sailors, now magnetically attracting luxury yachts. Yet, the traditional houses and authentic tavernas of this romantic summer getaway tell the story of times long gone by – walk around the maze of old streets to feel the pulse of the stunning coastal Rogoznica. The real surprise awaits you when you visit the Dragon’s Eye, a saltwater lake famous for a peculiar natural phenomenon that gives away the impression that the water here is boiling. Numerous legends are connected to the lake, including one that says it came to existence when young Aristotle wounded a dragon, whose Eye then melted and became an island. Another myth says that couples who swim here will forever be bound to each other – if you’re traveling with someone special, it’s definitely worth a try!

Cheer to the goodlife with a glass of fine local wine, artfully paired with the exceptional dishes your private chef will prepare, and then head to the sublime island of Šolta, one of the most attractive marine destinations in the Adriatic. With more peaceful beaches than one can count, it’s no wonder Šolta has become a bucket list destination for many yachting aficionados.

But if you think that it is only historic memorabilia that makes the visit worthwhile, you’re wrong – the second-largest Croatian town has a vibrant nightlife and art scene that will entice even those who are just looking to have fun.
