Šolta island is truly a hidden gem among the Croatian islands and its raw beauty and charming wildness will let you get a glimpse of life as locals knew it decades ago.

ŠOLTA'S HIDDEN BAYS
Relax while cruising through hidden bays surrounded by the stunning cliffs of Šolta island.
Year by year, the Adriatic is rising in popularity among both foreign and domestic guests. Numerous guests are choosing the Croatian islands as a top destination for their summer holidays for their natural beauty, clean beaches and transparent blue sea and for overall authentic Mediterranean experience. However, sometimes it can be challenging to enjoy the peace of islander’s life when the narrow streets of small towns get crowded with tourists.
This small island near Split got its name after Olyntha, a greek word for unripe fig and was a favorite holiday spot for roman emperor Diocletian. The remains of his fishery are still visible near the settlement of Nečujam on the northern side of the island. Except Nečujam, there are 7 more settlements on the island and none of them is located on the southern coast.
Mainly uninhabited, the southern coast prides itself with the untouched nature of deep turquoise bays with steep cliffs, molded by the open sea and heavy southern winds, falling into the sea providing a perfect getaway location for guests striving for relaxation in peaceful, calm and quiet environment.
The boat tour will start with a cruise along the southern coast passing a small islet of Mrduja – a point of rivalry between Šolta and Brač islands for generations. Nowadays, the rivalry turned into folklore and an event called “Tugging of Mrduja” was held annually between the two towns of Stomorska and Milna.
Enjoy the views of Hvar and Vis islands scattered on the open sea in the distance as you reach the silent bay of Grabova. This romantic bay enclosed by a high rocky shore provides just the perfect place for swimming, snorkeling or simply floating around carefree. Swim from the boat in the bay sheltered from the masses while gentle breeze stirs the branches of high pine trees creating enough shade to keep you refreshed. To add a bit of adrenaline, the steep cliffs pose as a climbing challenge for the braver members of a party.
Discover the dreamy bays of Jorja, Tatinja, Poganica and Šešula hardly accessible by anything other than the private boat. Admire the landscape of the coastal formations carved by the sea eroding Dalmatian limestone as you head to the west.
Admire the view of 300 years old Martinis-Marchi castle and stone houses nested around the picturesque Maslinica town.
The western side of Šolta island hides the most beautiful port and town of the island – Maslinica. First mentioned as Ponto Oliveto back in the 1880s, the name reveals a long tradition of olive oil making. The lush fields surrounding this mesmerizing fishermen’s settlement create a serene oasis of winemaking and beekeeping as well. Pick your favorite among the lovely taverns and treat your senses by enjoying the traditional Dalmatian lunch paired with some locally made Dobricic wine made out of indigenous grape sort of the same name, growing exclusively under the Šoltan sun.
Take a walk around the charming alleyways and wind up on the scenic promenade. Gather your loved ones; the gorgeous stone houses aligned by the waterfront surrounding the mesmerizing three hundred years old Martinis Marchi castle create a picture-perfect backdrop for a group selfie.
The turquoise sea and light summer breeze make the Blue Lagoon the perfect stop for snorkeling and swimming from the boat.
Our next stop is somewhat a piece of a tropical paradise on the Adriatic. Nestled between the islands Veli Drvenik, Veli and Mali Krknjaš, the Blue Lagoon is a popular anchorage and a perfect spot for a half-day trip filled with swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear and vibrant turquoise blue sea. The alluring color of the Blue Lagoon encircled with pine groves attract guests seeking just a perfect place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of crowded cities and towns. Refresh yourself, ask our crew for snorkeling equipment and take a dip while discovering what’s hiding in the white sands underneath. Bring a camera to capture the favorite moments while enjoying this divine location.
Stroll along the seaside promenade of the medieval UNESCO town Trogir while enjoying an ice cream or coffee.
The next stop along the tour – the historic city of Trogir is the perfect blend of rich cultural Greek, Roman and Venetian heritage and contemporary living. Trogir has been placed on UNESCO’s World heritage list due to its beauty and well preserved medieval architecture such as Romanesque churches and gothic, renaissance and baroque buildings dating from the Venetian period. The cobblestone alleys of the city’s historic core hide the masterpieces such as the splendid Cathedral of Saint Lawrence, old city loggia and old city gates. Walk along the promenade up to Kamerlengo Castle and stop for a coffee or an ice cream break in the heart of UNESCO World Heritage site.
As the sun slowly sets creating a mesmerizing panorama, we will slowly cruise back to Milna. Bewitching sunset colors painting the canvas of the open sea will stage captivating scenery that you will certainly remember for a lifetime.
