Trogir, a historic harbour town located quietly between louder cities Split and Sibenik in Croatia, is also registered on the UNSECO World Heritage list. With it’s cobble stone streets and walls, Trogir is home to the Karmerlengo Castle and Fortress; a contributor to the city’s medieval character. The Kamerlengo Castle is the ideal location for a grand view of Trogir and the Adriatic’s natural beauty and surrounding sea.
Considered as one of the most beautiful towns on the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia, this town is seen buzzing through the summer nights and the port for many of the world’s Super Yachts seen daily by the Harbourside. The marina bleeds restaurants, bars and gelato cafes.

Be generous with your tips! £10-£15 per person does go a long way in Croatia and I’m sure your tour guide will be very appreciative!

Most island tours are £40 per person for the day (930am-530pm) and include lunch on an island with soft drinks onboard. Incase you’re wondering, yes there is rakija onboard. Providenca Charter & Travel Day Tours is highly recommended in the area.

Where To Eat?
Croatian food on the Dalmatian Coastline is a mix of grilled seafoods and Italian. You almost can’t escape Italian food, it’s very rare to find a restaurant to cater for a specific kind of cuisine. There will be cevapi on one page and lasagne on the next, followed by seafood platters. Traditionally, Croatian food varies depending on the side of the country you’re visiting but by on the Dalmatian coastline, seafood is most common.
Much like any city you visit, tourist traps are inevitable and finding somewhere nice and authentic to eat can pose as a mission, even if you’re from that country. In Trogir, I recommend Pizzeria Mirkec and in particular the octopus salad.
