      Family Germany
      Es war ein ruhiges Örtchen und guter Ausgangspunkt für Aktivitäten.
      Das Wasser war überall an den Stränden sehr klar. Trogir und Split sind nicht weit entfernt. Auch der Krka Nationalpark ist mit 1 Stunde Entfernung definitiv eine Reise wert.

      good alternative to city of Trogir, great coast and views
      We were on the seaside of the island and enjoyed the view. As it was low season (April) , many restaurants, kiosks and small supermarkets were still closed. That''s why it''s essential to have your own car for shopping and eating out. This changes in the high season. The water is clear and there are many bays, including some with pebble beaches. You can also walk along beautiful coastal paths in some places. The excursion destinations of Trogir and Split are within easy reach, Krka Nationalparc only 1h away
