Enjoy a leisurely boat trip around some twenty beautiful islets and rocks lying in Korčulan archipelago. Badija, the most famous of them, has an old Franciscan monastery and a famous cloister dating from the fourteenth century. From 1949 to 2002 the island was used as a sports training centre and was visited by a large number of famous sportsmen from all over ex-Yugoslavia who came here to train for competitions. In the vicinity of Badija there is an only inhabited island of the archipelago, Vrnik, where you will have an organised tour round the island, a visit to an old querry and The School of Vrnik Arts Club. The stone from Vrnik, a high quality white stone, was used in the construction of
Korčulan and Dubrovnik houses and palaces, as well as Hagia Sophia in Istanbul and the White House in Washington. Having finished our tour of Vrnik, we sail further on towards Lumbarda, the first Greek colony on the Adriatic, in which you can see a lot of summer houses of Korčulan gentry and the vineyards of famous Grk wine. You will get free time to walk the village or have a swim at one of Lumbardan sandy beaches. After a break at Lumbarda we sail on towards Majsan islet, famous for its prehistoric site. Our next stop is the lighthouse of Sestrice. On our way back we sail alongside the shore of the Pelješac peninsula so you could enjoy the view on Orebić, the town of captains, and its riviera. The whole archipelago is very attractive and every islet and rock has its story to tell. They are very green, having a lot of various trees and plants, and some of them even have vineyards. Sea currents of the archipelago are very strong and it is them that give the sea its transparency and turquoise colour. It is extremely clear and enjoyable to watch.
Lunch or dinner will be served on Stupe or Vrnik, depending on the start of the excursion.
