Our Dubrovnik Sailing Itinerary A - 7 day begins from the beautiful old town of Dubrovnik (or surrounding area). Dubrovnik old town with the spectacular city walls, the finest in the world and the city's main claim to fame. From the top, the view over the old town and the shimmering Adriatic is sublime. This itinerary is approximately 130 NM, which makes it perfect for families with kids and sailors that like to relax and spend more time at one of many beautiful swimming points.
Day 1. Start from Dubrovnik (or surrounding area) and sail to Elaphiti islands - Sipan, Sudurad, Croatia. Sudurad is one of those typical Mediterranean fishing villages they don't make anymore. Due to the Sipan Island once being one of the the most popular recreational destinations for wealthy families from Dubrovnik, one finds- as well as throughout the whole Elaphiti Archipelago – many magnificent summer residences and palaces.
Day 2. Sail to the Pomena of the island of Mljet. Pomena is, like the entire island of Mljet, part of which has been proclaimed a National Park, surrounded by a dense Aleppo pine forest. The place has some 50 inhabitants who primarily live off of agriculture, fishing and tourism. Being located on just over 15 minutes walk to Malo Jezero (Small Lake) of Mljet National Park, the village is the main entry point to the Park.
Day 3. Sail to Zaklopatica Bay, island Lastovo, Croatia. Zaklopatica is heaven for divers and sailors who can enjoy the well-know beauties of the Lastovo archipelago and its magnificent bays. Zaklopatica offers a breath taking view of island Korčula. Enjoy sunbathing, swimming, leisurely walks and many restaurants offering the best of Dalmatian cuisine. Don’t miss the beautiful and unique sunset.
Day 4. Sail to Korcula Old Town, Croatia. The main attraction of island Korcula – a medieval walled city positioned on a oval-shaped swelling of land pointing deep into Peljesac Channel. The Old Town itself is grooved with a succession of narrow streets that branch off the spine of the main street like the fish bone.
Day 5. Sail to Polace, island Mljet, Croatia. Polace is the main port for yachts entering the stunning Mljet National Park on the northern end of Mljet Island. It is a fantastically well sheltered bay (the best on the island) and is utterly charming with its tiny village and heavily treed backdrop. Polace also comes complete with the ruins of an ancient roman palace (5th century); hence the name Polace.
Day 6. Sail to Sipanska Luka on island Sipan, Croatia. Once a traditional Dalmatian village, Sipanska Luka is located on west side of island Sipan, the largest of the Elafiti or Deer Islands. Sipanska Luka was once popular with the gentry of Dubrovnik and is now enjoying a renaissance.
Day 7. On your last day, sail around Elaphiti islands and citiy walls of Dubrovnik. We recommend you to berth in the Sunj Bay on the east side of Lopud island. There you can go for a swim, and then sail out towards Dubrovnik, where you will spend the night. In Dubrovnik, you will be impressed by the remarkable historic old town that drives you back to the Roman times.
