DAY 5: Blue Cave & Vis Island Speedboat Tour or Blue Lagoon & Solta Island Yacht tour

  • Breakfast at the villa
  • Island hopping tour
  • Chef's dinner at the villa

On day 5 we would love you to take another island hopping tour.

Our recommendation number one is a private speedboat tour to the island of Vis and to the Blue Cave.

The distance from Brac Island is approximately 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on the starting point. Thus we recommend speedboats instead of yachts for this tour.

Entrance to Green Cave

If you prefer yachts instead of speedboats, the best option would be Three Islands Tour, including visits to Blue Lagoon on the island Drvenik Veli, stops in Maslinica bay on Solta island, and a visit to lounge bars on the island of Ciovo.

DAY 6: Activity Day, or Chill Out Day

  • Breakfast at the villa
  • Free Day
  • Chef's dinner at the villa

As your week's stay on Brac Island is passing by, we are sure you will get some ideas on what to do or which place to visit on your own.

Since there are many things out there to explore, visit, or activities to take part in, we would love to leave this day to your free will.

Since you will be staying at a wonderful luxury villa on Brac island, it would definitely be great to enjoy some of the villa amenities to the fullest.

We recommend combining the time at the villa with some of the activities around the island, some adrenaline activities, or even to hop to the mainland.

So, we have several different activities in mind you could want to do on a day before departure. Most of the activities can easily get booked within short notice. But, if you already know you would like to do one additional day on a boat or on a yacht, we recommend booking it upfront, especially in high season. The thing is best boat rentals and best yacht rental options easily get sold out so it is better to be safe than sorry.

DAY 7: Departure Day - Goodbye Until Next Time

  • Breakfast at the villa
  • Check-out and departure transfer

Before checking out the villa and heading to the airport, have a delicious breakfast at the villa. Enjoy the coffee with a sea view before the time to leave comes.

Breakfast in the shade of pine trees and with a sea view

For departure arrangements, we also recommend having a scheduled private speedboat transfer from the Brac villa directly to Split Airport.

In case your outgoing flight is in the late afternoon or evening hours, here comes the opportunity to enjoy it even more. You can have a speedboat with a skipper booked for a couple of more hours and do the stops for visits to Trogir old town or Split city center.

I hope our 7-day itinerary for a villa vacation on Brac Island in Croatia will inspire you to spend your holiday on this marvelous island. If you have any questions or would like to get more in detail information about activities, sights to accommodation on Brac Island, please feel free to get in touch by email or leave a comment.
