An Afternoon in a Secluded Cove on Otok Šćedro | Croatia
It was the last full day of our 5 night sailing charter from Dubrovnik to Split and the normal itinerary would have taken us to the luxurious, party island of Hvar, but instead of spending our day on land, we wanted to take full advantage of having a boat at our disposal and go somewhere off the beaten path. We asked our skipper, Bartool, if we could go somewhere private and he brought us here, to Otok Šćedro, and for nearly 4 hours, we had this whole cove to ourselves.
We made lunch, we snorkeled; we could have swam to shore and explored. Otok Šćedro is undeveloped except for an abandoned monastery and the whole island has cove upon cove with minimal boats anchored, so it’s simply a matter of sailing to one that someone else hasn’t gotten to yet. Among the many jewels of the Croatian coast, we found our day at Otok Šćedro to be our favorite hidden gem.
