Full description

Join a guided tour of the Blue Cave from Split and discover the serene natural beauty of the area. You will also visit the stunning Stiniva Cove, Pakleni Islands, Budikovac island, and the famous city of Hvar on a day tour.

Begin your tour on a comfortable and safe speed boat fit for 12 people. First, stop at the mesmerizing Blue Cave, which is known for its shimmering blue water and is located on the small island of Biševo.

Depending on the season and time, see the sunlight reflecting through the water and coming from the white floor of the cave. View the grotto in aquamarine light. This light causes the objects in the water to appear to be silver.

The second stop is Stiniva Cove, which was awarded the best beach in Europe in 2016 and is famous for its difficult approach and crystal clear waters. Spend 40 minutes there swimming and sunbathing before making your way to the next stop, Budikovac Island. 

The beautiful blue-lagoon-like beach captures your attention from the moment you enter it, and is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. 

If you'd not prefer to swim, choose to have a drink in a local beach bar. Following an hour of sea fun, travel to the Pakleni Islands, a beautiful set of islands located in front of Hvar. There, find some of the best seafood restaurants or popular beach clubs.

The city of Hvar is a real treat, due to it being one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. There, explore the local cuisine in the many restaurants and lounge bars. 

When it comes to sightseeing, you can't miss the city's highlights which include the fortress on top of the hill, the main square, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. On your way back to Split, have the chance to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets in the area.

We had a great time on this trip. The tour company were great as they looked ahead to expected poor weather conditions and asked us to join a tour a day earlier to provide the best chance of the trip going ahead. The Blue Caves are an amazing experience. You transfer to a small boat to fit inside the entrance. The caves are quite small but are amazing inside so well worth a visit. Petra and Brane were great guides and we were always clear about meeting times on the islands etc. Petra provided interesting information at each place. After the cave we sailed along the beautiful coastlines of many islands and had the chance to swim in the clear blue water in two places as well as visiting the beautiful island of Hvar for a late lunch. Thank you for a really nice relaxing trip.

Superb activity! I loved the stops on the islands, they are sublime. Unfortunately we couldn't get into the blue cave... the weather was not good. The guide was very nice and recommended us to a very good restaurant, quite gastronomic not against it. I recommend for those who want to visit a lot in one day! On the other hand, do not get seasick or be aware that the speedboat is moving a lot!!!

We went to the blue lagoon on the shorter trip because it was too stormy but still had a great time! The speed boat itself was so much fun we didn’t stop laughing! The boat has music and goggles to snorkel with and we stopped at some nice beach bars. Thanks so much Sanja and Tomo!
