Early morning cruise towards the small island Biševo to visit the Blue Cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon (entrances to be paid on the spot–approx. 18 EUR).

After exploring the town’s vast medieval ramparts, heading towards Europe's oldest saltworks known as the trademark of Ston, a short coastal walk that leads to an oyster farm.
