Then, set sail towards Bol, a small town on the Island of Brac, for a swim at the Golden Horn. Enjoy the 1740-foot-long golden pebble beach, said to be the best in Croatia. It is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds.

Your final stop will be at the family owned Toreta winery in Smokvica where you will have a chance to taste a variety of Croatia’s world renowned wines, prosciutto and home-made cheese.
