If the wind gets up head for Sibenik and go up to Skradin Town to visit KRKA National Park, it JUST don't get any better......

Trogir is an absolute must don't miss that either STUNNING we will be around there somewhere.... Frank & Vivien

Re: central dalmatian 2012

Bobavisce is a really lovely stop first night out of Split, we have done it several times. There are a couple of berths alongside on lazy lines but you would be very lucky to bag one. Far better to anchor or this year they have laid mooring buoys with attached stern lines then you can swim off the boat. Couple of nice restaurants ashore.
Vis is lovely but be warned everyone and their aunt heads there first. The harbour master in Komiza advised us that the best time to visit was later in the week. In the right weather Rogacic (just N of Vis town), Stoncica (NE coast) and Rukavac (SE coast) are good anchorages and fantastic for diving. Last 2 have good restaurants
Likewise the Pakleni are very nice but busy but at weekends with lots of dodgy anchoring supplemented by loads of locals in motor boats.

Sorry, should have added. Get a 777 Harbours and Anchorages and or Cody/Nash Croatia Cruising Companion then you can mug up beforehand.

Boat: So many boats to choose from. Would prefer something that is not an AWB, and that is beachable...

I always wonder why the Anglophones get only 777 Harbours, where the Germanophones get 888 :-)

Anyway. A few nice spots we visited in 2011:

On Hvar, a bit further down the coast from Hvar town there is Sveti Nedjelja, where there is a small private harbor. Just large enough for a couple of sailing boats, but when we were there it was being extended. The place is owned and operated by the man that makes the best wine in Croatia, and there is a good restaurant. Turizam

North of Primosten there are a couple of nice mainland anchorages that even at the hight of the season were wonderfully empty. Everybody obviously heads for the islands, and forgets that the mainland coast is quite interesting too.

If the wind permits it, a visit to Lastovo is interesting too. Again a place that the big crowds seem to miss mostly. We don't miss them.

Vis, or Old town Korcula, surrounded with walls on the island Korcula. You can visit house in which was born Marco Polo. Hvar - the oldest theatre in this part of the world, authentically, small Mediterranean town. Village Pucisca on island Brac. Just a village worth of whole day staying. There is a well known quarry and also famous stone-dresser's school. Whole village is full of stone sculptures that stone-dresser's school donate. White House in Washington is built of the stone from that old quarry!
