Brač is the biggest Dalmatian island and easily accessible by ferry departing from the city Split. It is especially known for its marble-like limestone and wonderful vineyards.
A nice fish restaurant, situated in a picturesque bay, where you have fantastic views over the water while enjoying local delicacies.
Domovinskog Rata is producing award-winning wines on the beautiful vineyard in Dračevića. Make an appointment in advance to enjoy a great wine tasting, along with all kinds of delicious regional cheeses and jams.
The little seaside village Bol, located on the south coast at the Golden Cape, is the picturesque centre of the island and celebrated for its beautiful white pebble beach.
This is one of the oldest wine cellars in Bol. The historical building as well as the modern bar are very much inviting to the connoisseur who wishes to taste some of their famous wine.
The restaurant is located inside of an old brick building which the fishermen of Bol had formerly used as a warehouse for their haul.
Hvar is often called the "island of lavender" because, in the summertime, the area is covered with purple, scented flower fields. Apart from that, Hvar is noted for its glamorous party scene.
This is the hot spot for cool sundowners, fantastic sunsets, wild parties and simply having a blast at the beach!
Since 1970, this restaurant has been a successful family business. Hardly surprising - Every mouth-watering dish is made with fresh, organic and homegrown ingredients.
Located on Šolta’s west coast, this marvellous hotel is a perfect place to relax for a few days, in a peaceful, serene environment.
The historic heart of Split belongs to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage and is definitely worth a visit. A highlight: the Diocletian’s Palace.
Grab your coffee to go here in the morning and start exploring fantastic Split.
Look for this special coffee shop, you’ll find the most passionate barista! Get yourself a coffee or a smoothie and start on a leisurely strolling through the nearby Jospia park.
This is one of the most popular bakeries in the city, with its delicious pastries and the cute bench in front of the shop. Try their bestseller "Emperor’s Bread" with goat cheese and honey!
Bobis has several branches throughout the city, but the one at the Riva is obviously the best one to pop into while exploring Split. Do not miss out on a piece of the traditional sweet Mandulat!
A very traditional tavern, with great prices for great little snacks and cool Croatian beer. Locals, fishermen, hipsters, tourists- they all come here!
Excellent interior and excellent food - everything here is done in the most authentic way, but somehow still manages to be very cool!
This is THE place for wine lovers! The well-trained, charming staff is happy to tell you everything about the wine on the menu. Along with the glass of your choice comes a wonderful selection of Croatian cheese, ham and jam.
You feel as if you’re sitting inside the kitchen as you can watch your dinner being prepared right in front of you. It makes for a very pleasant and cosy atmosphere and the cuisine is some of Croatia’s finest!
Our thoughts about Split & Islands
Diving into the clear turquoise water, the cliffs, the lonely bays, the olive trees, the lavender fields, the vineyards.
Go on a sailing tour, explore the various islands, drink a Karlovačko beer, put Aivar on literally everything you eat (well, maybe not on the sweets, unless that’s your thing 🙂 ), listen to some Balkan beats, enjoy a wine tasting.
Take a vacation into Our life
We are a family of four currently based in Berlin but we love to go on adventures near and far. Tanja (with both Swedish and Austrian roots) started Nectar & Pulse in 2010. Chris (originally from Hamburg) and Tanja met in 2011, fell in love, got married, and became parents to their beloved kids, Jonathan and Victor. Chris worked for BMW and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering but switched over to working at Nectar & Pulse in 2015. We are soulmates with a shared love for family, business, travel, transformation, fashion, music, exceptional hotels and wonderful places made with love. From luxury trips to getting up close and personal with nature and locals, we love it all. Come along and follow us! ☺ We love to show you the world from our perspective.
Oh so many, but mostly the tiny little moments in between, when we realise we’re living the life we always dreamed of.
