Work it all off on one Maslina’s wooden bikes. Wind your way through the pine forest along the coast to the charming town of Stari Grad. Make sure you pack your cozzie and join the octogenarian ladies, resplendent in their colourful bathing caps taking a morning dip in one in one of the tiny islets along the way.
The 19th century Stari Grad’s recently-expanded port is dominated by three classical stone buildings, including the City Hall, built during the Austria-Hungarian period in the the 19thc when sea trade was flourishing. Now it’s just the flotillas of yachts and tiny wooden fishing boats jostling for position against its concrete walls.
Branching off the main promenade like tentacles, are narrow cobbled streets leading to pretty squares surrounded by tiny two-storey stone houses, proudly exhibiting the gardening credentials of their residents.
Maslina’s superstar, Experiences Manager, Zorana, will choreograph all manner of excursions. From cruises out to the nearby Pakleni islands with their pristine white sand beaches to hiking through ancient olive groves; pottering around abandoned stone villages and wine tasting in 250 year old old cellars lit by candelabras, listening to Pavarotti.
