Maslinica Solta

Sailing south from Sunsail’s base at Kremik, you will come to the small island of Solta, one of the smallest inhabited islands in Croatia. It lies just south of Split on the coast of the mainland.  The eastern side of the island is rocky and the western side covered with scrub, while the interior is cultivated – mainly with olive groves and vineyards.

The coast of the island is dotted with inlets and small harbors, some of which make for idyllic anchorages on your yacht charter, places that are just perfect for an afternoon of swimming and sunbathing.  The harbor of Maslinica – the name derives from the word maslina, which means olive - is situated at the north-western tip of the island and is the base for a small fishing fleet.

The village caters for tourists drawn to the island for its fine beaches (the most popular is Necujam) and quiet ambience in a modest, laid-back fashion, but there is no mass development here to spoil the peace and tranquillity of what, in essence, is still a simple fishing village. If the mood takes you, there are bicycles to be hired so that you can explore the island – the largest settlement is inland at Grohote and is worth a visit for its rustic charm. There are a few bars and traditional restaurants in Maslinica worth enjoying an evening on the town.

 

 

Mooring:
