    Pakleni to Vis -Stiniva to bay Smricevic

    June 20 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Pakleni to Vis - Stiniva and to Smricevica. I definitely cannot pronounce some of these names. Heading to Vis - a supposedly quieter island within the archipelago was a mistake. So, similar to Bol, Vis is on demand only. And discouraged. It’s an island at a distance from the rest of the split islands and it literally hosts one good bay, Uvala Ruda. Vis for some reason is over marketed as the must see destination. There is a submarine bunker which you can experience launching yourself from - around 20 meters to the water I think. There is a blue cave which is now a two to three hour queue of speedboats with charged access in order to visit for 1 whole minute. No swimming? I remember 2015 having access via our dinghy and being able to swim within the cave. The Island which was primarily a naval location has two small towns that are not as picturesque as on Hvar or Trogir. Before I sound too dismissive we did have the opportunity of visiting Stiniva a beautiful phenomenon with a beach behind cliffs which is quite spectacular. However later having two failed attempts at finding bays with sand on the south side of the island and eventual anchoring on rock was not great. This necessitated having to tie two supporting ropes to either side of the bay to augment our safety for the evening. Ok Vis off the list 😉.Read more

    End of second sailing day

    July 29, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    With some beautiful posing pictures :)

    The photos from outside the yacht are usually made by me inside the foldable kayak we had with us, which also allowed us to paddle a bit around after sitting or standing the whole day on the yacht.Read more

    Beginning of third sailing day

    July 30, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Unfortunately we had already some of our vegetables and fruits became bad on the third day so we throw them over board.

    It didn't took long and a big bunch of fishes arrived which were very about the free food, which was not good enough for humans, but delicious for fish.Read more
