Split: Blue Cave and 5 Islands Tour

1. Split: Blue Cave and 5 Islands Tour

Your tour starts at 7:30AM from where you will travel on a comfortable and safe speed boat fit for 12 people. The first stop is the mesmerizing Blue Cave, which is known for its shimmering blue water and is located on the small island of Biševo. Depending on the season, the ideal moment to visit the cave is between 10:00AM and noon. At this time of day, the sunlight reflects through the water coming from the white floor of the cave and bathes the grotto in aquamarine light. This light causes the objects in the water to appear to be silver. The second stop is Stiniva Cove, which was awarded the best beach of Europe in 2016 and is famous for its difficult approach and crystal clear waters. You'll spend 40 minutes there swimming and sunbathing before making your way to the next stop of Budikovac Island. The beautiful blue-lagoon-like beach captures your attention from the moment you enter it, and is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. If you'd not prefer to swim, you can always choose to have a drink in a local beach bar. Following an hour of sea fun, you will travel to the Pakleni Islands, a beautiful set of islands located in front of Hvar. There you can find some of the best seafood restaurants or popular beach clubs. The city of Hvar is a real treat, due to it being one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. There you can explore the local cuisine in the many restaurants and lounge bars. When it comes to sightseeing, you can't miss the city's highlights which include the fortress on top of the hill, the main square, and the St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Hvar is the final stop of the tour, but on your way back to Split you will have the chance to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets in the area.

Amazing tour. Blue cave is unforgettable and swimming in the Adriatic is better then any other sea I've been too. And the tour guide and skipper were great. With all the difficulties with COVID-19, they still made an amazing trip. Definitely would book here again.

Awesome day! Stop on magnificent coves and islands! Top skipper,
