2. Explore the bay which enjoys – a cultural status! The way to do it is to begin from Stari Grad, because it is probably the first place in which you would have onced sailed onto the island, 2,400 years ago!

There, you’ll enjoy one of the safest natural bays on the Adriatic, which is specific in that it protects against all winds except the steady and uniform Maestral which is actually propulsion to fuel for your sails!

Explore the largest bay on the northern side – a port called Tiha, or if you fancy something different, the spacious and deep Zavala, and in the south, enjoy the smaller and more intimate bays, such as Gračišće and Maslinica. It’s a great idea to anchor in Stari Grad itself, and enjoy the pleasure of sightseeing and looking at this picturesque beauty.
