Itinerary Ideas for Split
If you are island hopping, spend your days sailing from secluded coves to spectacular beach stretches. Stop to snorkel or have lunch in a quiet creek or navigate to an uninhabited island. Hvar is a vibrant island full of bars and clubs. Take a short climb up to the fortress at the top of the island for an incredible view of the luscious green islands.
Split is notoriously popular and for good reason. Walk the ancient white stone walls as you shop in the town centre. Pick an extravagant square for dinner or eat along the harbourside and indulge in some Croatian cuisine. Cave tours operate during the summer and you can organise watersport activities as well.
Trogir is a charming seaside town with plenty on the cards. Shop through its market stalls for precious stones and gems or visit during the town’s annual musical festival to listen to some classical Croatian folk.
