Bobovisca Sailing Trip
Tiny and unassuming, the small hamlet and harbour of Bobovisca lies on the west coast of the Croatian island of Brac. Although the quiet anchorage is one that could easily be bypassed for better known neighbouring ports, to do so would be a real shame.

The settlement itself is located 800 metres from the sea, a tiny inlet that is characterised by old fishermen’s cottages, churches and basic shop and restaurant facilities to cater for local requirements.

While there are certainly no frills attached, the simple village setting only serves to emphasise the outstanding beauty of Bobovisca’s wider setting – the beautiful bay that attracts the Croatia sailing crowd all year round. The sheltered harbour attached to the village is calm and tranquil in virtually all weather conditions and its petite quay is certainly one of the most charming to be found.

The bay on which Bobovisca sits splits into two coves. The other is the historic archaeological spot of Vicja Luka, a site that is well worth visiting on a Croatia sailing tour. Remains of both ancient Greek and Illyrian civilisations can be found here and the ruins pay testament to the myth and legend that surround the area.

Make even more of your brief stop in Bobovisca by taking part in a spot of windsurfing or diving. You can also enjoy a leisurely walk around the village and up into the olive groves and greenery of the surrounding mountain terrain.
