Looking for an off-the-beaten-track destination in Croatia? We suggest visiting Šolta, a small, beautiful Dalmatian island in Croatia only an hour ferry ride away from Split.
Šolta has just as beautiful beaches as Split, but they are more secluded and quiet. With the crystal-clear water and pebbled beaches, it will feel like your own private paradise.
Šolta is home to beautiful scenic bays, the purest virgin olive oil you will ever taste, and delicious wine. The island offers a variety of activities, but one of our favorites is sailing around the island while tasting some of the best food and drinks in Croatia. Taste high-quality olive oil made on the island and enjoy a glass of locally crafted Zinfandel at dinner.
If you’re looking for high-energy thrills, Šolta offers certified scuba lessons, exquisite biking trails across the whole island, kayaking the Adriatic Sea, sailing to exclusive sailors-only restaurants, to name a few. If you’re searching for something more relaxing, there are many hidden beaches throughout the island or visit a local family farm to pick up some homemade jam, honey, or olive oil.
Sound like fun? Experience Šolta and other islands on one of our customized or small group tours.
