THE ISLAND OF ŠOLTA
With a coastline of 60 km, four harbors and 24 bays, Šolta has been recognised as one of the most beautiful islands along the Adriatic cost and as a hidden gem waiting to be explored. Just a short ferry crossing away from Split, you find the island of fishermen, olives, honey and vineyards.
Šolta is often overseen in favor of more crowded islands such as Hvar and Brač, but the island's charm and beauty is everything you look for in a relaxing holiday.

From Visit Šolta's slogan - 'A Return to Innocence' - visitors can experience an island full of tradition and authenticity, but that has managed to rejuvenate its tourist industry. Walking through the old narrow streets all your senses are filled with images of this paradise island.
Grohote, the oldest village, is the administrative center. Gornje, Srednje and Donje Selo (Upper, Middle and Lower Village) are idyllic Mediterranean island villages where time seems to have stopped. In these villages virgin olive oil is still stored in the same way as it has been done for centuries. The villages by the sea Stomorska, Nečujam, Rogač and Maslinica were inhabited later.
One summer spent on Šolta will make you dream of it for the rest of your life.
