This tiny, old Croatian town is squeezed onto a little island that is 500m long and 250m wide; located between the mainland and Čiovo island. Trogir is full of history and the whole island is a UNESCO World heritage site. There is a maze of winding streets to explore as well as a wide seafront promenade (riva), best enjoyed in the early morning just as everything starts to stir and before the crowds begin to mount. That said, there is something magical about the light during the ‘golden hour’ as the sun hangs low and the buildings glow against the intensely blue sky.
At night, the riva is alive with tourists and luxury yachts moored in the town’s port. There are lots of restaurants and bars on the promenade and in the squares inside the old town but if you want to try something authentic you need to go further afield.
Split airport is just 10 km away and you can get there by taxi or local bus, if you are staying in marina Seget Donji (Baotić) you can take the water taxi directly from the marina to the promenade.

Marina SCT Trogir
SCT Trogir is one of many base marinas in the area perfectly located for exploring routes around the islands of Šolta, Brač, Hvar, Vis, Šćedro and Korčula. The marina is located a few minutes walk from the old town of Trogir, across the bridge on the island of Čiovo. As the marina is so close to the old town, it is worth checking if there are any events or festivals on the nights you plan to be moored here as it means there will be even more tourists in town and the noise levels can get quite high.
Since the opening of a second bridge crossing between the mainland and Čiovo, traffic has improved significantly and the journey time to Split airport, which is just 3km away has reduced dramatically. After landing at Split Airport, find yourself a taxi or UBER (cheaper option) and ask them to take you to the marina SCT Trogir. For those who travel by car, there is a small car park in the marina (cost around 10€/day), or there are slightly cheaper alternatives 250m out of a town.
