The Blue Cave

The Blue Cave is a water filled sea cave located in a small bay off the island of  Biševo called Balun. The Croatian term for the cave is Modra špilja. Simialr to the the Blue Grotto in Italy,  the cave has a submarine-like opening on the ceiling where sunlight creeps in and creates an iridescent blue glowing effect throughout. 

Itinerary

  1. Upon embarking on you luxury Gulet in the city of Tivat, Montenegro, you will be greeted with Champagne and hors d’oeuvres as you set sail up the Croatian coast to Molunat, a small cove, to anchor while the Chef prepares lunch. Here you will be invited to swim, snorkel, or kayak for a couple hours until you leave for the Greek-founded city of Cavtat. As you arrive at sunset, dinner will be served and enjoyed with a nice glass of wine. Beach bars, shops, restaurants, and centuries-old art are just a few things Cavtat has to offer. 

  2. After having a nice breakfast, head to the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, to explore. Dubrovnik also happens to be where both Game of Thrones and Star Wars: Episode VIII have been filmed! There is also a cable car that goes to the top of Mt. Srdj which presents an amazing panoramic view of the Old City. After you have seen all the sights in Dubrovnik, sail yet farther north to the island of Otok Šipan and anchor in the bay of Šipanska Luka. 

  3. After a good night’s rest, you will sail to the picturesque bay Prožurska Luka on the northern coast of the island Mljet. This bay is surrounded by a quaint fishing village which features a lovely pebble beach and several konoba restaurants. After a nice lunch, move on to Polače, a tranquil anchorage spot in the Mljet National Park. Kayaking, hiking, cycling, and swimming are highly recommended in this beautiful setting. 

  4. While enjoying breakfast, make your way to the small city of Lumbarda on the island of Korčula. It is strongly recommended that you go ashore and explore this city, which is particularly known for its local winery and its rich history dating back to more than 2000 years ago. Soon after, you will sail just a short distance north to the medieval walled city of Korčula, known as the birthplace of world renowned writer and traveller Marco Polo. After a day of exploring these beautiful historic cities, enjoy dinner and take in the sunset while on anchor just outside Korčula. 

  5. In the morning, sail down the coast and make a stop in the small cove Pupnatska Luka for a swim or snorkel. You will enjoy lunch on board while anchored next to this small pebble beach with crystal clear water. In the afternoon, you will sail to the beautiful turquoise cove Uvala Gradine, situated outside the waterway entrance to the small city of Vela Luka. 

  6. After breakfast, you will set sail to the next must-see location, the tiny island of Biševo. Here you can discover the glowing waterlogged cave system, the Blue Grotto, one of the best known natural beauty spots on the Adriatic Sea. After having ample time to explore, will make your way to the island of Vis, where you will stop for the evening in the bay of Rogačić, home to a James Bond style ex-Yugoslavian military shelter for submarines used during WWII. 

  7. Get an early morning start sailing from Rogačić to the stunning chain of Pakleni Islands. After touring the edges of these islands, you will anchor in the port of Hvar. Like Lumbarda, Hvar is known for its wine, where tours can be set up to visit several local vineyards. If you prefer, you will also have an opportunity to visit the Spanish fortress, which provides one of the most photographed views on the island, or meander through town shopping or trying local restaurants. The last evening of this special voyage is best spent in Hvar, as it has a bustling nightlife definitely worth experiencing. 

  8. During breakfast, set sail for your final destination – Split, taking in the last of the Southern Dalmatian Islands.
