What to see? – Maslinica
This small village with the most breathtaking sunset is located on the west side of Šolta. Archipelago of seven small islands (Polebrnjak, Saskinja, Stipanska, Kamik, Balkun, Šarac and Grmej) is just one of many things that make Maslinica one of the most beautiful places on the Adriatic coast. Restoration of the castle into a hotel and the construction of a nautical marina are turning this village little by little into the tourist centre of the island that greets more and more guests each year. Apart from Maslinica, the boaters find the neighbouring bay, Šešula, with its safe anchorage and unique gastronomical experience very attractive.
