Okrug In the heart of the Island of Čiovo,

just a few kilometers from the Town of Trogir, which is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, there is another Mediterranean gem – The Town of Okrug! The most popular destination of the Trogir Riviera, comfortably “ensconced“ in Saldun Bay, comprises two towns:

Okrug Gornji and Okrug Donji.

‘Okrug’s Copacabana’

a “beating heart” of this area, which in summer becomes the center of social life of the Riviera, is the two-kilometers-long pebble beach named Toć with a promenade. This place is the center of all the daytime and nighttime events – during the day, it is crowded with swimmers enjoying sports and recreational activities, while at night it caters to entertainment lovers and food travelers.

2,670 hours of sunshine per year

Although the crystal-clear sea, islands, hidden bays such as Duboka and Široka, as well as the beaches close to the villages of Bok, Bušinci and Mavarčica, the Kava and Rudej beaches make the Town of Okrug the most desirable town to visit during the summer period.

Owing to its extremely mild climate with an average temperature of 16,3°C, one can actually stay at this Mediterranean oasis at any time of the year. If you prefer boat trips, you can opt for an extremely pleasant visit to the protected bays of Kancelirovac and Racetinovac!

If you are a fan of scuba diving, join the tours organized by the local scuba diving center and engage in the exploration of the rich underwater world of Okrug and of the neighboring islands. If you prefer sticking to the mainland, you will be delighted to know that the entire island is covered by a road network, old well-trodden intertwining paths that used to lead to the sea, the fields or churches. They are still an ideal place for nature lovers, walking and cycling, and if you have the courage to climb onto the peak of the Island, you will be rewarded for your hard work with a beautiful panoramic view of the open sea and the neighboring islands!
