PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Fly to Dubrovnik, and upon arrival, meet your tour manager and make the scenic transfer by coach (approximately three hours) to the Bluesun Hotel Alga, your holiday base. Enjoy dinner in the hotel this evening, and your first night under the Mediterranean stars.
Today is free to rest and relax after the journey, to enjoy all the facilities of the hotel, or simply to laze by the pool or on the stretch of white pebble beach. Tucepi, set between the warm, blue waters of the Adriatic and the ridge of Mount Biokovo, and with views out towards the offshore islands, is a delightful base, with a selection of bars, cafes and tavernas, as well as some beautiful gardens.
A first included excursion journeys to nearby Orebic, a pleasant coastal resort, before a short crossing brings you to verdant Korcula and its picture-postcard perfect-fortified main town. Birthplace, legend has it, of explorer Marco Polo, Korcula Town is a medieval gem, its tiny core of narrow streets surrounded by crumbling battlements. Enjoy a guided walking tour and visit the beautiful cathedral, then perhaps take a seat in a cafe to soak up the atmosphere before returning to the mainland.
Another free day in which to rest and relax, or to join the optional excursion to the beautiful Krka National Park, with its lakes and waterfalls. Take in delightful harbour town Skradin, enjoy an included boat trip to the foot of the plunging cascade at Skradinski, and take a stroll through the park's verdant forest, before returning to the hotel.
On today's included tour, journey to Croatia's historic, vibrant second city Split, where highlights include the colourful Old Town and the crumbling ruins of the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian, then visit exquisite walled, island-town Trogir, with its narrow streets crowned by its Romanesque cathedral, and delightful seafront promenade encircling a time-warped jumble of palaces, ancient churches and hidden courtyards.
Today is free to enjoy all the pleasures of the hotel or beach. The energetic might head to the nearby sports centre for a game of tennis (payable locally), while others might take a stroll along the shore to Makarska Town, perhaps returning by bus or taxi.
Perhaps saving the best till last, today is spent 'at sea', cruising the blue waters on an included boat trip. Calls are made at Brac, Croatia's third largest island, with its beaches, clear waters and sleepy main town Supetar, and at celebrated offshore island Hvar, a verdant, lush paradise, topped by a rocky ridge. Another highlight of a wonderful day is the traditional 'Fish Picnic' prepared by the boat's captain and crew.
Bid farewell to the hotel and Tucepi, as you make the scenic transfer back to Dubrovnik Airport and the return flight, at the end of a truly wonderful holiday.Back to top
