Do you know you can see three islands in one day? You can depart from the island Čiovo, watch it from afar as you go towards the Drvenik islands where you can swim in the beautiful turquoise sea and end the trip on the island Šolta for a short walk in the olive gardens. All this includes a lunch package and a day in the sun! There are various offers for fish picnics; The three island tour as above mentioned, and others go to either one or both islands, all with the same promise - an unforgettable day in the sea under the sun.
