About Solta

An overseen Adriatic pearl, Solta lies off the Dalmatian Coast, 18km from Split by car ferry. An island of hills, wide pebbled beaches and sunny sheltered coves, it is the ideal place to go for a seaside family holiday, particularly if you want to escape the summer crowds. Once the holiday getaway of wealthy Roman citizens living in Salona, it's largely unspoilt by tourism, the islands' inhabitants earn a living by the traditional industries of bee-keeping and olive oil; the quaint stone villages are lined with stone alleyways and hidden courtyards, old medieval churches and breath-arresting waterfronts - like the capital, Grohote, or the charming fishing village of Maslinica. Boasting great beaches, bright blue lagoons, restaurants and sailing boats, Solta is the perfect summer escape, and the best places to stay in Solta include a beautiful renovated Croatian castle!

What not to miss

  • Bathe in the blue lagoon.
  • Eat freshly-caught seafood at a restaurant in Stomorska.
  • Visit Tvrdic Honey and learn about the beekeeping process.
  • Browse the market in Grohote and wander the narrow stone alleyways.
  • Lounge at the gorgeous beach in Necujam.
  • Take a boat trip out to the uninhabited island of Mrduja, with its stark ruined tower.

Picturesque, full of sand and sunshine and still largely untouched by mass tourism, this makes for a wonderful holiday destination. Browse through our collection of the best places to stay in Solta to start planning your trip.
