There are numerous shops nearby to fill the boat's lockers. We set sail to Postira, a lovely port on the island Brač.
About 30 minutes walk from the town port lays a colorful village Dol, one of the oldest settlements on Brač built of stone on barren rock to preserve the scarce fields of fertile soil. It has also preserved its original architecture. Since Postira is one of the well known fishermen villages on the island, fish is no1. delicacy and a must-try.
If we are lucky, we might buy some fish from a local fishermen in the morning. Bearing towards south, we'll make a stop in a lovely village Pušišča. This small community is world-known of its white marble.
The White House and Reichstag in Berlin are both built from the Brač white marble stone. Sailing around the island, we will soon reach the "golden horn" beach near Bol, to take a swim in one of the most famous beaches in the world.

A nice morning SUP tour around one of these peaceful bays for some exercise will be nice before breakfast. Today we set our sails west, to explore the legendary island Vis. A couple of decades ago the islands was a military zone and forbidden for any visitors. Vis is living legacy from the cold war times. If you like history and cultural heritage, this is the right place. The benefit of its military blockade is that all through the centuries the settlers have been more or less cut-off from mainland and preserved a unique tradition (and language. That is also why Vis is one of the most welcoming islands for sailors and a true nautical paradise.
There are only 2 towns in the whole island that both together count under 5000 residents. We will anchor in a smaller village, Komiža. You can rent a bike, or a quad and discover all its secret treasures.
In the morning you can ascend on mount Hum and treatyourself with a rewarding view. If you are lucky, you can see all the way to Italy, and find out why Vis was such a strategic military point through the history.
There is an option of renting a water taxi at 10 am and visit the famous "Blue Cave" on island Biševo. Your skipper can recommend the agency that can give you a nice 1-hour tour.

I bet you never tried wine tasting in the underwater celler? Fresh daily catch, caught by restaurant owners is prepared by the traditional Dalmatian recepies. A romatic dinner with sunset over the calm seas is an impressive site.
In the morning a nice ascend on the highest peak in Hvar, St. Nikola (626m) before we set sail to the "green island" of Solta. Southern coves of the islet are usually off-the-standard route itinerary for many sailors, which is a real shame.
