This tour begins at a small place called Jakiruša in Brela. The beautiful Jakiruša bay is surrounded with the spectacular mountain of Biokovo. There is a sandy beach in Jakiruša, popular with the locals and tourists for swimming and on the west side there is a rocky coast and one of the last untouched bays in this part of the Riviera – bay Vrulja. We launch our kayaks on the beach and paddle lightly towards the deserted sandy beaches of the Vrulja bay. We stop to observe the underwater source that brings 50 m3 of drinking water per second to this place even in the summer. Our paddle takes us to the Vrulja beach where we pause to swim and snorkel in the crystal blue waters. After the kayaking adventure, we can arrange a delicious meal in a local restaurant (not included in price).
