In recent years Dubrovnik has become one of the hottest destinations in the Mediterranean and it’s not hard to understand why. Its historic streets and grand baroque palaces, surrounded by ancient city walls and set against the backdrop of the Adriatic Sea on one side and Mount Sdrj on the other, give it an unmistakable appeal.

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, damage caused by sustained artillery attacks on the city during the war in the Balkans in the 1990s was repaired in the original style and the city was restored to its original splendour, with its characteristic red terracotta rooftops and limestone streets.

Popular attractions include the 2km long city walls, which you can walk along in around an hour; the Sponza palace, originally built as customs house in 1516 it now functions as the State Archive; the Cathedral; and Stradun, the city’s main thoroughfare where you will find throngs of locals and tourists throughout the day. Lokrum Island is a 15-minute boat ride from the old town harbour; as well as many peaceful coves it also boasts a Botanical Garden and a Benedictine Monastery.

Around one hour by boat from Dubrovnik you can find the Elafiti islands, an archipelago offering great opportunities for hiking, lovely beaches, superb seafood, fantastic snorkelling and beautiful sunsets. What more could you want from your summer holiday?

The largest island is Sipan, where you will be based for a lot of your stay. It has a population of around 430 inhabitants. With its quiet bays, beaches, cypress trees, groves of orange and lemon trees it is a true haven from city life. The island is small enough to get around easily by bike an you will quickly adapt to the slow pace of life here.

Second in size and best known for its sandy beaches, Lopud is completely free of motorised traffic. The island was once full of summer residences of the aristocracy, and there are several well-preserved medieval churches and fortresses dotted around.

Kolocep is closest to Dubrovnik and is a popular day trip destination. It is one of the best locations for sea kayaking in the archipelago, and you may even spot some dolphins!

You will spend 3 nights on the Nautitech 44 Catamaran which has a total of four rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The catamaran has beds for up to 10 passengers with lots of deck space, comfort and very good sailing performance.
