5 Reasons Why You’ll Never Forget Your Trip To Vela Luka

By MedSailors Crew published on 22 October 2017

Basking in more than 2,500 hours of sunshine each year, Vela Luka is one of the sunniest spots in the whole of the Adriatic. Aside from soaking in those rays aboard your yacht as you’re enjoying sailing in Croatia, here are a few more reasons why your time in Vela Luka on your MedSailors adventure is going to be unforgettable.

Summer sun and beautiful settings - See the best that Croatia has to offer

The Food

Dalmatian cuisine is up there with the best in the world and as Vela Luka’s promenade is bursting with incredible restaurants, let’s just say you’ll be pretty spoilt for choice. Think fresh fish, just-baked bread served with locally made olive oil, and a plethora of meats, cheeses and veggies. And yes, you must sample a glass of the locally made wine too.

Explore Vela Luka’s Great Cave While Sailing in Croatia

Vela Luka’s Great Cave is an extensive rocky hideaway which has provided shelter to humans since the Neolithic Period, with evidence suggesting it was used seasonally for hunting. Just a five-minute walk from the seafront and hidden amongst the fragrant olive groves, this ancient, atmospheric site is more than worth a visit. It’s all very Indiana Jones and exciting!

Take in the Spectacular Rocky Shoreline on your MedSailors Adventure

Vela Luka is home to stretches of rocky shoreline, which are spectacularly dramatic and effortlessly beautiful. Ideal selfie taking spots as well as excellent places to watch the boats glide into the harbour, somehow that ridiculously beautiful view just never gets old.

The View from Hum Hill is #nofilter Beautiful

If you want to feel as though you’re on top of the world, journeying up the winding road of Hum Hill, which leads to an abandoned fortress, is pretty unbeatable. You’ll be able to see Hvar in the distance, along with olive groves, spectacular greenery, and sweeping sea views.

Did Someone Say Party?

Enjoy a few drinks with your boat pals in one of the promenade bars, before making your way back to the yacht for some tunes and drinks underneath the stars.
