Blue Cave Croatia



Discover the islands near Split on a private or group island hopping tour. Make the most out of your day and enjoy sightseeing, swimming and exploring our top hand picked destinations.


The Blue Cave is a natural phenomena located in the Balun bay on the Eastern side of the island of Biševo, which is only 4 nautical miles away from Komiža.

The small island with only ten permanent residents, is also known for Medvidina cave, fine wine and beautiful beaches.

The cave is a natural pearl first described by baron Eugen von Ransonet. The only natural entrance was below sea level making the cave accessible only by diving. In 1884 an an artificial entrance was built and to this day is used as the entrance of the cave. The natural cave opening is much wider and spreads like a vault on the south side below sea level. The sunlight penetrates through this opening causing specific illumination and a unique atmosphere in the interior. 

It is best to visit the cave during the morning hours while the sea is quiet and the sun rays penetrate into the interior and reflect from the white bottom illuminating the cave with a blue colour. The depth of the cave is from 3 to 20 meters and since the past few years swimming is no longer allowed due to its protection. To enter it is necessary to embark a small paddle boat and duck your heads as the entrance is very small. Over the past few years it has become one of the most popular attractions on the Adriatic.

Komiža and the island of Vis

Komiža, a charming village on the island of Vis, is situated on the Western side of the island in the deep Komiža bay. The mountain range Hum separates it from the rest of the island and steeply descends down to the shore of the bay forming interesting coast cliffs. This typical Mediterranean town with traditional architecture, narrow streets and houses around the harbour is known for its fishermen history. The inhabitants were mostly seamen and fishermen due to the position and the lack of agricultural land. The important fishing history is shown in the Fishermen’s Museum, one of a kind in Croatia. Komiža is also proud of its traditional naval architecture. Every year on December 6, on the feast of St. Nicholas (on the day of the city), in front of the parish church of St. Nicholas they burn a sacrificial boat.

Given the specific geographic position and limited agriculture and cattle breeding the local culinary specialities are significantly different from the surrounding Mediterranean diet. A traditional meal visitors often wish to taste, is bread made of tomatoes, anchovies and herbs – Viška Pogača. The cuisine also consists of various fish dishes with local wine. Winemaking is still the basis of the economy of this island.

The island of Vis is a little farther from the other islands and therefore may seem somewhat lonely in the bay.

What makes the island of Vis unique is its recent past as a Yugoslav military base. Due to its strategic position, in socialist Yugoslavia, the island was closed to foreigners and as such it was entirely converted into a great military fort. On its surface of 90 km2 there were over 30 military facilities.

Its position, far from the mainland was ideal for hiding and military operations. The whole island is connected with tunnels used as shelter for ships as well as a great location for a military hospital in the past. Twenty kilometres of tunnels inside the island and numerous rooms created the perfect hideout for Tito and other Yugoslav generals. The island was well equipped with an underground hospital, food, medicine and all the necessities even in the case of a nuclear war. There are cannon openings high in the mountains and hidden bays for ships and submarines to hide. Vis also had an airport from 1944 built by the RAF military. The airport was located in the centre of the island, in the area of today’s vineyards. The cape Stupišće is situated on the Southwest of the island, an area where the positions of the coastal battery were buried in the hill and connected by the underground corridors. No one knows with certainty the exact size of the tunnels and bunkers. The former army took all the documentation. The consequence of a half-century isolation was the massive emigration of the population. 

After the independence of Croatia, the Yugoslav army withdrew from the island and it was finally opened as a specific tourist destination. The tunnels are now owned by the Croatian Army and are open to visitors. Unfortunately, organized tourist tours are not defined by law and independent tours are not recommended due to the difficult ability of orientation in the tunnels. Vis is rich in various natural beauties and its two most famous coastal sites are Vis and Komiža.  

The Green Cave is located near Vis. Although it may seem that it’s the same island the cave is actually located in the rocks of Ravnik’s islets. It got its name because of the greenish reflection of the sea resulting from the multitude of green algae found at the bottom. The cave is located in front of the Rukavac bay and has two sea entrances and an opening on the top allowing light to penetrate. 

The combination of the sea bottom and the light entering through the crack on the ceiling causes the interior of the cave to appear green. At the front of the cave there is a massive stone pillar that divides the front, making two large entrances that small warships long ago used as shelter. Boats are able to approach the interior and swimming and diving is allowed in the cave. The unusual geological formation makes the underwater world of the cave very interesting. Its entrance is rich in algae and sponges, which provides shelter for flocks of larger and smaller fish. This area was declared a protected landscape of Croatia due to its geomorphological characteristics.



The beautiful natural bay Stiniva located on the southern side of the island of Vis is protected as a nature reserve. The small narrow bay about 600 meters long, surrounded by high unreachable rocky cliffs on both sides was voted as one of the top 10 beaches in Europe. The width of the bay at the entrance is about 100 meters. At the end of Stiniva there are several uninhabited fishing houses, which are protected along with the cove. Due to its unique position and interesting underwater, this bay is a frequent diving destination and favourite destination for those eager to bathe in its turquoise sea.





Blue Lagoon is set near the island of Budikovac known for the ideal place to swim, snorkel and relax.


Veliki Budikovac is a uninhabited island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea and lies Northeast of the Ravnik islet. It is located about 3 km Southeast of the Rukavac bay on the island of Vis. Right next to it is the islet of Mali Budikovac where a beautiful turquoise lagoon stretches out. The island can only be accessed by private boats and is considered as paradise by sailors because of the natural protection from winds.




The stunning Pakleni islands are located along the Southwest coast of Hvar. The name describes the combination of high temperature in the thick pine forest which causes the overheating of pine resin. In the nautical sense they are amongst the most visited parts of the Adriatic creating a very charming archipelago. The first thing you will notice is the rich plant life and rich green nature. Due to the uniqueness of this locality it is classified as a recreational forest. According to the Law of Nature Protection of the Republic of Croatia The Pakleni Islands are a protected monument of nature in the category of significant and protected landscape.

The Palmižana bay is situated on the largest island in the group St. Clement. The most popular place is Palmižana with a small uninhabited tourist resort established by the Meneghello
family devoted to creating a paradise of cultural tourism for over a hundred years. The sandy cove in the shade of old pine trees encouraged the Meneghello family to begin developing tourism in 1906 on their 300 year old estate. The family brought numerous exotic plants to the island and created a rare botanical garden. In 1999 Palmižana was classified into 10 of the most beautiful tourist destinations on the Adriatic. It is the oldest and most famous excursion site of Hvar, as well as a nautical marina. Its cuisine is based on fish, crustaceans, shellfish and home grown vegetables.



The island of Hvar is considered the sunniest island in Croatia and one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The largest town on the island is the town of Hvar a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage and an elite tourist location. It is situated in picturesque nature with plenty of Mediterranean attractions. Hvar is a treasury of scenery, great atmosphere, adventure and excitement.

The town itself is a living monument especially the Fortica fortress. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Stjepan I, a pope and a martyr, who is also the patron of the Hvar Diocese and the City of Hvar. The cathedral is situated on the St. Stephen square known as ”Pjaca” in the centre of the town. 

The Hvar Arsenal is the oldest theatre in Europe. The construction of the building started in the 13th century and was originally used as storage for galleys and marine equipment. At the beginning of the 17th century a folk theatre was built on the floor above the Arsenal. The historical heritage such as The Franciscan monastery with its rich museum exhibits and the City Hall from the 15th Century, which is the only present remnant of the former Governor’s Palace is just a part of the interesting island. Hvar offers numerous interesting catering facilities ideal for relaxing. 

Over the past few years it has unavoidably becoma a trendy jet set location visited by many famous Hollywood and domestic stars, as well as famous athletes and politicians. We recommend a visit to the city and enjoying a traditional Dalmatian fresh meal. The island known for the beautiful lavender fields has lavender products offered throughout the entire island. One of the most unique and popular products is lavender ice cream. This local delicacy with with its creamy texture and light purple colour is definitely something to try before leaving the island.

natural harbour, harmonious and preserved traditional architecture. As
a tourist destination it is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the slow paced Dalmatian lifestyle. It offers its visitors crystal clear sea and clean air as well as traditional local food and drinks.

Long ago the Italians called this small town “Valle di mille navi” – a bay with thousands of boats. During the construction of Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Milna had a role as a port for merchant ships and yet to this day it has the function of the largest, most protected and most beautiful harbour on Brac. Milna’s residents have always been shipbuilders and sailors, which can be noticed by its urbanism. 

The sea view from the coast consists of houses of fishermen, shipowners and captains from the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of them are somewhat modernized, but most of them retained their traditional spirit, as well as the town itself. The baroque church with a typical Dalmatian bell tower and rich interior, dominated by works of famous Venetian painters is located in the centre of Milna.

Don’t forget your camera for the perfect photo from the highest mountain on the islands of the Adriatic. Standing at the top of Vidova gora, Italy can be seen easily, especially on a clear sunny day or after the strong Dalmatian wind Bura – a cold wind that blows from the mountains clearing away all the clouds in sky.

For cyclists and hikers, the road up to the Vidova gora mountain is surrounded by beautiful nature and panoramic views of the islands of Brač and Hvar and the famous Golden horn beach. The summit is 778 m high. If you don’t prefer visiting Brač during the high Summer temperatures and if you aren’t into hiking, Vidova Gora is also easily reachable by car. The walk to the top takes around 1 and a half hours. Be sure to wear appropriate walking shoes and to have plenty of water as the road is rocky and the temperatures can get high.


Discover The Olive Oil Museum

Not far from Supetar, in the inland lies the oldest settlement on the island, Škrip. Rich in history this small charming village is a peaceful oasis away from the city crowds. The Museum of Olive Oil opened in May 2014 in Škrip. An old family mill was restored and first opened back in 1864. Valuable archaeological, ethnographic and cultural historical collections as well as traditional equipment and tools used for olive oil production are shown at the small family-run museum. This museum is an interesting place for olive oil lovers and those interested in the history and tradition production of olive oil. Not only go visitors get the chance to see the production process, they can also enjoy tasting olive oil, cheese and other local products.

At the small shop of the museum, the family sells their home made products such as olive oil, vinegar, jams, etc.

Enjoy your summer cocktail on the famous Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Horn)

Golden Horn beach or Zlatni rat in Croatian, the long pebble beach at Bol town, which elegantly extends 500m into the sea, is the most famous beach and most popular attraction on the island. Along the seashore is a wonderful promenade leading from the town to the famous Zlatni rat beach surrounded with Mediterranean pine grove creating pleasant shade. Listed year after year as one of the top beaches in Europe, an unforgettable experience at this stunning beach is guaranteed. Chill in the morning sun and relax in nature. The path is lined with wonderful sculptures made from Brac stone and above you raise large pine trees. The influence of the stone masonry school can also be noticed in this part of Dalmatia, as a result the whole town is covered with sophisticated works of Brac stone.

An interesting fact about the Zlatni rat beach is that it naturally changes the direction of its top, due to the strong sea currents. Visitors can choose the windy side ideal for wind surfing or the other to enjoy the Summer sun. Due to its position, it attracts many visitors not only interested in swimming but in water sport activities, mainly windsurfing. Pedal boats, jet-skies, scuba diving, volleyball and other fun Summer activities are part of its offer as well as many cafés for those who fancy chilling with a Summer cocktail by the beach.

Zlatni Rat, one of Croatia’s most photogenic beach often seen in travel brochures, plays a starring role on Brac Island’s beach scene. Thanks to its distinctive fishtail shape, swimming and bathing is possible on both sides. It may appear as a sandy beach however it is a white pebbled beach.

Golden Horn is one most popular beaches on the island of Brac in the Bol area, however on the way to Milna there are beautiful hidden bays with turquoise water not overpacked with mass tourists.

Our local skippers on private tours enjoy showing guests secret bays with more privacy and untouched nature.


Milna – Valle di mille navi


The small town of Milna lies on the west side from Bol town. Long ago Italians called this small town “Valle di mille navi” which means a bay with thousands of boats. Milna was a port for merchant ships during the construction of Diocletian’s Palace in Split and yet to this day it has the function of the largest, most protected and most beautiful harbour on Brac.

Besides being an important nautical destination, Milna features four big pebble beaches – Osibova, Maslinova, Pasikova and Lucice beach. Two beaches lie in the town of Milna and the other two in the close vicinity. The beaches are surrounded with pine trees, which again provide the necessary shade in hot summer days.

Cultural sites on Milna, the baroque style Church of Our Lay of Annunciation, built in 1783. The church situated on the waterfront in the center of Milna has a church organ built by the Callido brothers from Italy in 1822.

In the charming Osibova Bay lies the church of St. Joseph from the 18th century with St. John’s Chapel from the 14th century. Enjoy the stunning view of the island of Hvar and Vis from this secluded bay.

Relax on Milna’s waterfront drinking your morning coffee with breakfast. After a day or so, the waiter will already know your name and your order without even asking. The friendly locals at this slow paced town welcome newcomers treating them as their own. For those coming back year after year, they definitely feel like family. This feeling is not as common in the top tourist destinations such as Bol or Supetar as it is in the small hidden gems of Brač.


Admire the miraculous Bonsai tree


Guess why the 600 year old church of St. Peter and Paul in the center of Nerežišća has been photographed almost as much as the famous Golden Horn beach? A miraculous bonsai tree grows on the roof of the church! You may wonder what is so miraculous about a bonsai tree. First, no one knows for sure how it got there, the locals assume its seed was blown on the roof or left by a bird. The church was built in 1413 and the oldest residents of the village believe the tree is 120 years old.

Another mystery to the locals is how the tree managed to survive all these years in unfavourable conditions. The high temperatures during the summers and the rocky roof of the church do not provide enough water leaving the people to believe it has extended its roots to the ground although there are no visible indications.

As it is specifically grows in higher altitudes, this tiny black tree is growing at it’s minimal possible altitude. It was declared a natural monument in 1969 and is one of the few types of natural bonsai trees in the world. The mystery of its origin, how it survives and how old it really is, as far as we know, will stay as a mystery.


Pustinja Blaca (Hermitage Blaca) visited by many tourists and locals is the most popular hermitage on Bol. As a significant part of the history of Brač, it’s not only famous for its cave monastery but also for its amazing cove surrounded by a dense pine forest and a beautiful beach deep in the cove. The monastery consists of a church, commercial building, printery, school, observatory and library. At present, Pustinja Blaca is a museum with its library featuring over 11.000 books and the third biggest telescope in Croatia. There’s no better place on the island of Brač to observe the stars and space.


If you speak Croatian, it won’t be of much help on Brač!

Even if you are familiar with the Croatian language that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be useful and that you will understand the locals when on Brač. Just like most of the other islands in Croatia, each with it’s specific dialect, the island of Brač has more than 10 different dialects sometimes even difficult for Croatians to understand them. As tourism has developed and English is studied at school, the majority speak English making it easier to correspond with visitors.



“Čigova je, judi, Mrduja?” – Pulling the small island of Mrduja

For centuries, it has been a dispute among two islands – Brač and Šolta, who owns the third small island Mrduja. Not too much bigger than a regular house, Mrduja is situated right between these two islands causing the locals to argue regarding the possession of the island. Till this day, once a year in August, the people of Milna on Brac and Stomorska on Solta, literally tie their boats to each side of the island of Mrduja and start tugging. The purpose of this satirical tug of war is to try to pull the little island closer to their side and claim it as their territory. The „war“ ends when a winner is awarded with the ownership of Mrduja for the entire next year (until they compete again). This has become a tradition for locals as well as for tourists. However, regardless of the competition and the winner, administratively, Mrduja belongs to Brač and no matter how hard Šolta pulls that fact doesn’t change!


Brač the perfect getaway for families

The small seaside towns on the island of Brač have a lot of open spaces, playgrounds and pedestrian zones where there’s no danger of traffic. The seafront promenades ”riva” are perfect for strolling and letting toddlers run around and observe the fish in the sea while parents enjoy their coffee in the sun.

Discounts for children are widely available from museum admissions, day trips to hotel accommodation. The safe beaches, hiking and biking tracks suitable for all ages and the ancient towns and fortresses are great for wanna-be knights and princesses to explore.


Relax on the only sandy beach on Brač

Lovrecina beach located on the northern side of Brač near the charming town of Postira is a wonderful sandy beach and popular tourist resort. The sand on the beach and in the sea stretches for almost 100 m making it suitable for children. Surrounded by pine forests it offers natural shade in hot summer days while enjoying the clean shallow sea. The beach set deeply in a bay can be reached by car, foot or from the seaside.

At the archaeological site nearby lie the remains of the St. Lawrence basilica from the 5th and 6th century. We can assume that the ancient Romans also enjoyed the natural beauty of Lovrečina.




A taste of local cuisine for the perfect holiday

The food prepared on the island of Brac is mostly local, organic and of course seasonal. The food culture of the island has a long tradition and mainly consists of freshly caught fish from the sea, home grown vegetables, sheep and goat cheese from the inland, extra virgin olive oil from olive trees centuries old. The southern part of the island of Brač is known for excellent home made red wine – Plavac mali.


Put down your camera or mobile phone


Enjoy the full experience of your holiday and sense it with your eyes, ears and nose. Don’t watch it through the lens or screen on your camera. It doesn’t matter if your photos aren’t posted on social media every day of your holiday, enjoy the moment creating memories to cherish when you return home.

Surrounded by several islands such as Brač, Korčula and Vis, Hvar island is around an hour away from Split by boat. Hvar is the longest and sunniest island in Croatia with over 2700 sunny hours a year.

Some call the island of Hvar ”The Queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands”.

Besides the stunning coastline, the island is the perfect place for hiking, biking and wine tasting.

Like most of the beaches in Croatia, the beaches on Hvar are mostly rocky and pebbly. A walk in the heat or a boat ride to reach the stunning secluded bays are definitely worth doing.

The nicest beaches can be found on the southern side of the island. Explore the lovely pebbled beaches of Zaraće, Sveta Neilja, Ivan Dolac and Gromin Dolac on the south – east of Hvar town.

The beaches on the island of Hvar are without doubt the most beautiful and cleanest on the Adriatic. Located in bays, Hvar’s beaches are mainly pebbled surrounded by pine forests.

As the sea waves are stronger due to the strong north winds (”bura”), there are several natural sandy beaches on the north side of the island.

On the south coast Dubovica beach is situated, a pebbled beach with crystal clear water surrounded by pine trees and olive groves in a magical secluded bay. Visitors often say this is the best beach on the island, perhaps because of the stunning blue colour of the shimmering sea.

The sandy cove in the shade of old pine trees is classified as a recreational forest. Palmižana was also listed as 10 of the most beautiful tourist destinations on the Adriatic. The Meneghello family started to develop tourism in 1906 on their 300 year old estate. According to the legend, the owner was a sailor who sailed across the world. When returning home, he would bring his wife a plant from each country he visited. His wife planted the exotic plants creating a rare botanical garden which has become one of the oldest and most famous excursion sites on the Hvar archipelago.


Every traveller seeks the perfect souvenir to bring home as a reminder of an amazing trip.

Hvar has always been known as the island of lavender. The production of lavender oil dates back to the early 1920s. Grown on the hillsides, lavender on Hvar is organically produced and picked by hand. In June and July the island changes its colour to pale purple. Groups of friends and family get together for harvesting and even tourists have been joining over the past few years. The Lavender Festival is also organized in Velo Grablje during this period.

Lavender products can be found on stands along all of the Dalmatian promenades. The unique lavender souvenirs will take you back to Hvar everytime you open them and smell the lavender. Not only will you see lavender products all around Hvar, this is one the few places where you can try homemade lavendar icecream!


Imagine your summer afternoon with the breeze caressing your face, enjoying a quiet coffee on your balcony or an afternoon swim. These are all ways of relaxation or how they would say in Dalmatia ”fjaka”. This peaceful state of mind somewhat like siesta without sleeping, often occurs in the afternoon after lunchtime.

The famous Croatian poet Jakša Fiamengo stated fjaka as a specific state of mind and body “It is like a faint unconsciousness,” he wrote, “a state beyond the self or – if you will – deeply inside the self, a special kind of general immobility, drowsiness and numbness, a weariness and indifference towards all important and ancillary needs, a lethargic stupor and general passivity on the journey to overall nothingness. The sense of time becomes lost, and its very inertness and languor give the impression of a lightweight instant. More precisely: it’s half somewhere and half nowhere, always somehow in between.”

It doesn’t take much for those visiting Hvar to pick up this specific behaviour and enjoy their own version of ”fjaka” on Hvar.
