Guide to Šolta

A secluded paradise

Šolta is an idyllic, wooded island located in close proximity to the beautiful Brač and incredibly popular, Split. A must-see destination for those on a luxury super yacht charter, the island boasts pristine beaches, a cultural history and picture perfect vistas that will make your time spent here unforgettable.

Although Šolta may not be well known as its neighbor islands Brač or Hvar, it is well worth visiting and exploring. Dive into the beauty of many bays on the southern side of the island, Poganica Bay and Zaglav Bay are among the most popular, primed with crystal clear waters and pebbled coves perfect for an afternoon of sunbathing and soaking in the Croatian sunshine. 

If you can pry yourself away from the gorgeous coves and anchorages on the island, be sure to head over to one of the numerous family-run farms on the island and learn the art of making oil, wine and honey. Treat yourself to some of Šolta’s world-famous treasures, from superb red wines to succulent olive oils, your taste buds will certainly enjoy what this island has to offer.

With an abundance of quaint and beautiful villages to visit during your charter vacation around Šolta, make sure to spend some time in the beautiful marina in Maslinica, the only settlement and port on the west side of the island. Receiving a national award for the best authentic coastal destination, Maslinica is a place where the beauty of the surrounding nature is in harmony with the historical, architectural and environmental values of the old castle and picturesque stone houses. You could spend hours here exploring the town, dining in the portside restaurant or treating yourself to a stay in the island's only luxurious five star resort, Martini Marchi.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the gorgeous Šešula Bay, an indented bay that is located in the immediate vicinity of Maslinica. It is considered a true nautical treasure and one of the favorite bays in the Central Dalmatian archipelago thanks to its mesmerizing views and superb gastronomy. Šišmiš and Šešula are two popular restaurants which are a real highlight when visiting this area. 

If you’re looking to fuel your adventurous spirit, there are an abundance of opportunities to do so in Šolta. From hiking and biking through the inner parts of the island to sea kayaking and scuba diving in the warm Adriatic sea, there is plenty to keep you occupied. The southern part of the island offers a truly rich underwater world boasting abundant species of flora and fauna as well as providing you with the opportunity to get close to various shipwrecks.
