The wines of Croatia are little known, outside the country, but of excellent quality as you will discover in Lumbarda when you walk through the vineyards to Bire Winery, one of the most well-known Grk wine producers on the island. After a tasting and some free time for lunch you sail to Polace, on the island of Mljet. Perhaps the most seductive of all of the Adriatic islands, the north western half of the island forms Mljet National Park. You spend the afternoon exploring this unspoilt oasis of tranquillity filled with lush vegetation, pine forests and spectacular saltwater lakes. You will enjoy dinner in Polace, which is in a secluded bay, sheltered by the four small islands of Tajnik, Moracnik, Ovrata and Kobrava.

Day 4

Polace - Hum - Lastovo - Jurjevo

You continue your journey towards Lastovo, the furthest, inhabited island in Dalmatia, which Romans called the Imperial Island. Due to its remote location, very few tourists actually travel this far, making it a special island to visit and a perfect Back-Roads stopover! Travel by mini coach to Hum, the highest peak on the island, at 417 metres above sea level. After enjoying the stunning panoramic views, you drive to the main town for some free time. The whole town is a protected cultural monument due to its unique renaissance architecture, dating mainly from the 15th and 16th centuries. You will overnight in the sandy Jurjevo Cove.

Jurjevo - Green Cave - Komiza

After visiting the Green Cave you sail into the town of Komiza to stay overnight. With beautiful beaches, narrow roads and houses squeezed together around the harbour, this is a fascinating village to explore.
