Stop to explore, swim, and snorkel on an adventure to highlights like Brac Island, Hvar, Bol, Krusica, and the Pakleni Islands. Visit the Golden Horn, one of Croatia's most popular beaches.

Enjoy plenty of time to admire the view from the Fortica Fortress and visit other sights. After Hvar, it's time for your first swim stop at the Pakleni Islands.

Set anchor and explore the underwater world just with your naked eye or with one of the included snorkeling masks. Afterward, stop at Bol Town, where the famous Golden Horn Beach is located. Bol is the oldest town on the coast of Brac Island. With just a 15-minute walk from the center of Bol, you'll arrive at the most famous beach in Croatia: the Golden Horn (Zlatni Rat).
