Solta Island, Croatia: Travel/Tourist Information Guide

Mostly overlooked by tourists, despite being very close to the tourist resort of Split, Solta is a good destination for a relaxed and quiet vacation or for a one day trip from nearby Split. There are five towns on the island, as well as a few scattered villages. The main port is Rogac, the entry gate to the island. There are daily car and passenger ferries from the continent to the island.

Most properties that offer accommodation are located in the towns of Stomorska and Necujam, although there are some in Rogac, Maslinica and Donja Krusica. There are tavernas in all the towns of the island, where traditional Croatian food is served. In the main port of Rogac, there is a tourist center, a seaport office and the Jadrolinija office, that sells tickets for catamaran and ferries.

The inhabitants of the island live mostly on tourism, vineyards, olives, fruit and fishing. Necuman and Stomorska are the touristic centers of Solta. There are a number of bars, nightclubs and restaurants in the two towns, as well as terraces with live music. Due to the fact that all the nightlife is concentrated in these places, the rest of the island is a good place for a very quiet holiday.

Rogac is very crowded and lively during daytime, as it is the center fro trading and transportation. The other two towns, Maslinica and Donja Krusica are the perfect destination for a vacation away from the crowd and noise of a popular tourist destination. Solitary beaches, forest walks, diving and swimming are to be enjoyed here.
