These Are the Best Beaches in Trogir, Croatia
Among so many Trogir beaches will be difficult to decide which of them is the best or the most beautiful. The most of the beaches are scattered along the coastal line from Marina on the west all the way to Trogir town.
The most beautiful beaches are on the island of Ciovo and on two small islands of Drvenik Mali and Veli.
The convenience of the beaches on Trogir Riviera is their proximity to Split airport . Actually as soon as one lands on the Split airport is only half an hour from the nearest beach, ready to dive into the crystal clear waters.
Top Trogir Beaches
This popular beach is at a step from the Split airport. Family beach Pantan (Trogir) is ideal for families with children and beach sports fans.
This beautiful beach is located 1,5 km east of Trogir Center, at the mouth of Pantan River.
It is 500 meters long gravel and sand beach with pine-tree wood on eastern side for a nice shade.
To reach this beach, take bus N° 37 from Trogir bus station to Split and exit on second station, walk for 200 meters and turn right where you will see the sign.
There is a popular beach bar ‘Mosquito’ settled directly on the seashore with cold drinks, ice-creams and light food. The area around is protected natural resort with wonderful Pantan Mills on the north side of the beach.
Medena Beach lies along the Seget Donji, a small location on the western side of Trogir, only 4 Km from Trogir center.
It’s about 3 Km long gravel beach surrounded by old pine-woods, offering the various sport facilities like Water Sport Center, tennis courts, football & basketball courts, beach volleyball and water-slide. There are also children’s playgrounds to keep the younger ones entertained.
This popular beach is a part of Medena Hotel Resort with 650 rooms and 200 apartments in the area. To reach Medena Beach, take the bus from Trogir Bus Station for Medena Hotel or drive for 4 km to the west from Trogir in direction of Seget Donji (see the above map).
Seget Vranjica – Trogir Beaches
Traveling further west following the main coastal road (D 8), will find yourself at Seget Vranjica peninsula bay with several beautiful beaches. There are coves all around the bay so it’s a very relaxing location.
I recommend two beaches, both gravel beaches with cafe bars and restaurants in the bay and trees shade.
Belvedere Beach is on the other side of the Seget Vranjica peninsula to the main bay and has a very pleasant promenade along the sea edge with little coves, swimming spots, cafe bars, restaurants, water sports (windsurfing, jet ski’s, boat hire) and a water taxi line to Trogir Old Town.
Marina – Trogir beaches
Marina village is situated in the bay of Trogir, 8km from the Trogir center. Its most distinctive monument is old fortress “Kula” in the village center, used in the past for defense from Turks, now renovated in nice hotel.
It is a tourist village with a sandy beach shaded by olive and pine trees. Four star Hotel Marinska Kula is ideally positioned in peaceful surroundings in Marina, just a short drive from the Trogir Cathedral. Split airport is 25-minute drive from the hotel.
Top Ciovo beaches
The most beautiful Trogir beaches are widespread on the island of Ciovo. On this island, one can find many kinds of beaches, from sandy, pebble to rocky, from popular to deserted beaches.
Trogir beaches – Slatine
On the eastern side of Ciovo island there is a small Slatine village, very popular even among Split inhabitants.
It’s a rather long drive from Split to Trogir to reach Slatine village. More convenient way to get here is by sea, as during the summer season Bura company keeps daily fast boat connections from Split to Slatine and Trogir.
Among many beaches near Slatine, the best one is Kava sandy beach, on the far east corner of the Ciovo island. It’s 12 Km away from Trogir center, this is one of the real natural beauties located in the pristine nature.
It’s one of Trogir beaches very difficult to reach as 4 km from Slatine village is unpaved road but it’s worth trying. There are no beach facilities like bars, so it is wise to bring some personal drinks and snacks if you plan a longer stay.
Between Arbanija and Slatine villages there are two small beautiful beaches. The first one is Juliette beach, a pretty beach of white pebbles and turquoise calm water perfect for swimming and with a cafe bar for snacks and refreshment!
Not far from Juliette beach, these is another a pretty little cove with a small beach called Palm Beach, a pleasant and quite places to sunbathe and swim. In the immediate vicinity you’ll find same restaurants and cafe bars.
Trogir beaches – Okrug Donji and Gornji
Okrug Gornji and Donji (Upper and Lower) are two small villages, located on the west side of the Ciovo island. Both villages are very close to Trogir town, reachable by car crossing the bridge between Trogir and Ciovo island.
There is also in summer season a regular boat every hour from the Okrug Gornji to Trogir. Hop on at the small harbor in the Okrug and get off in Trogir at the end of the main waterfront promenade (Trogir Riva).
I warmly recommend you to go by boat from Trogir to Okrug Gornji if you want to avoid the traffic jam on Trogir bridge. It goes every hour from Copacabana beach to Trogir and back. Price is approximately 2 Euro.
Copacabana – Okrug Gornji beach
The best known and most popular among Trogir beaches is certainly the beach in Okrug Gornji. Only 3 km from the historic town of Trogir on the south side of Ciovo Island stretches over 2 km long beautiful pebble beach known as ‘Okrug Copacabana’.
The vast number of beach bars and few restaurants keeps this place alive until late at night. There is a water-sport center with complete water sports offer for your active summer day.
Kava beach – Okrug Donji
Okrug Donji is only 5 km from Okrug Gornji. It’s reachable by car in 10 minutes. This village offers also some beautiful Trogir beaches. At the cape of the Okrug Donji there is a beautiful pebble beach called Kava. (The same name as Kava beach near Slatine!
Because of the calm sea and pine forest that provides a natural shade, the beach is suitable for families with small children.This beach is rather secluded and very quite without the possibility of having drinks or deck chairs rentals.
The beach is accessible by car, scooter or bike. At the entrance to the beach there is a nice free parking.
Mavrascica – The white beach
On the south side of the island Ciovo, situated just south of Okrug Gornji, in bay Mavarstica there is a long pebble beach, called White Beach.
The bay is characterized by crystal-clear sea and the beautiful beaches to visit. From the bay extends a beautiful view of the many Dalmatian islands and islets.
Surrounded by pine trees and crystal clear sea, is a real heaven who want to relax in peace and quiet.
On the beach there is no facilities, and it can be reached only on foot. Not far from the White Beach (1 km) there is a beach reserved for naturists. Check all Central Dalmatia nudist beaches !
Konoba Duga Beach
On the eastern side of the island Ciovo between Okrug Gornji and Okrug Donji, overlooking the island Fumija stands famous beach Duga. Konoba Duga Beach is the beach directly underneath one of our favorite taverns Django .
Take a swim in the clear turquoise water and then head on up for lunch. The restaurant here is a local gem, offering simple dishes made from delicious ingredients and serving excellent local wine.
Enjoyment offers complete peace and quiet, and pleasant shade of green olives. The beach is accessible by car, scooter or bike. It’s only 7 km from Trogir town.
More Trogir Beaches – Veli and Mali Drvenik islands
Those who are really looking for some peace and quiet, can hire a boat and take a tour to small islands in front of Ciovo island – Drvenik Veli i Drvenik Mali where there are some sandy beaches. Both islands can be reached by regular ship from Split.
The most beautiful one is located in the cove of Vela Rina, also a pier for smaller yachts. On Veli Drvenik there are two beautiful coves, Solinska and Krknjasi, often visited by yachts.
Krknjasi bay is located just 7 NM from old town Trogir, on Drvenik Veliki island. Amazing turquoise blue color of the sea and wild nature makes this place a tropical paradise.
Krknjasi bay is protected with two small islands, large and small Krknjasi. With shallow sandy seabed, this beautiful pebble beach is a true tropical paradise among Trogir beaches.
