Camp Labadusa

Camp Labadusa is located in the south bay of the island Čiovo in the vicinity of Okrug Gornji, and presents a real oasis of untouched nature. It is a bay that is hard to describe by words or pictures. If you visit us once guided by curiosity or road signs, you will surely keep coming back satisfied that you have discovered it because it is truly an oasis of untouched nature. The Camp stretches along the beautiful bay in the shadow of pine forest. Many compliments of our guests confirm the excellent service offered and put it among the very top places for camping. Nature lovers will easily find that one exceptional spot for themselves and enjoy a relaxing holiday while breathing in the scents of lavender and pine. The beach of the camp is special for its diversity. The part with pebbles is ideal for children, and the rest are pebbles in combination with rocks.Inside the auto camp is a Mediterranean tavern built out of stone with a shaded Terrace. There you can enjoy in rich gastronomic offer, Dalmatian specialties and atmosphere spiced with homemade olive oil and wine. In front of the restaurant there is a round bar made in stone just next to the sea where you can relax and drink your morning and afternoon coffee enjoying the crystal clear sea view and Dalmatian Islands. A playground for children is next to the coffee bar, where your kids can enjoy the trampoline, swings, slider and funny sandpit. Great traffic connections (the airport and motorway vicinity) make this destination easy reachable. In just one place you can enjoy the accommodation, food, drinks, crystal clear sea and hospitality.

Clean showers and toilets.
There is authentic Konoba in the camp site with delicious domestic food

Copacabana Beach

Reviewed By Dakles - Hampshire, England

The area is very clean with great views and all the facilities you could need for food and drink etc. However the beach is very narrow and quickly becomes crowded. There is also no buffer space between the sunbathing area and the bars and cafes which gives the feeling of everything being on top of itself. We found it all a bit claustrophobic.

Trogir Diving Center - Day Dive

Reviewed By Swevet - Stockholm, Sweden

- poor safety routines
- no guide
- barely any English spoken
- hasty, cold staff
+ nice boat
I'm a certified diver with around 150 dives on various holiday locations around the world. Unfortunately I had a surprisingly bad experience with TDC. This place had none of the easygoing friendly vibe that I'm used to. Staff in the office were ok when I arrived. No paperwork whatsoever, I don't know what they'd do if there was an accident as they had none of my details. I was then told to go down to the dive center to get my gear sorted. Service here was hasty and with little concern (once they took notice of me at all). I got too big fins. Be aware you have to prepare the gear yourself. I have not done this in several years as the dive crew usually prefer to prepare the gear themselves and was met with irritation when I asked for support. Once in the boat it turns out the staff only speaks very limited English. They all spoke German though so other divers got to translate for me. The website promises a dive guide but there was only a skipper on board. We were simply paired together and went in. In fairness the dive site was easy but it would be good to know in advance that we were diving without a guide.
After the first dive I developed a splitting headache the like I've never experienced before. I could hardly stand and vomited. Naturally I choose not to have a second dive that day. There was no option to go back after the first dive which I can understand. Upon return the same hasty irritated service was given. It was a little hard to know what to do as this was my first time at the place and no one gave me instructions. They were only irritated that I was not fast enough.
When I passed the office on the way out I asked about a partial refund because I only did one dive and there was no guide. This request was declined.
One star for the boat which was comfortable. There was no safety briefing though. For example in an emergency I had no idea where to find the oxygen tank (if there even was one).

Three Island Tour

This is a one day excursion that offers seeing the amazing Trogir Archipelago and village Maslinica on island Šolta. On this excursion, the guests are to enjoy and relax for a day, they get drinks and food included in the price. This is for a reason one of the most attractive excursions in Trogir riviera.

Reviewed By Jarle H

We were 26 persons in the boat, five small children included. This was a mare, as the boat had four open spaces with no railings of any sort and you had to hold your child the entire trip in fear of it falling in the water. The “all-inclusive” for the first six hours of the trip was a tiny croissant from the supermarket worth 2 kuna, pluss two bottles of soda and some homemade wine. The dinner on the last island was ok, but by then we had spent the entire time on the first island finding and eating food as we were so hungry. The Blue Lagoon was just a water with lots of garbage on the bottom making snorkeling dull. The crew on the boat barely said anything the entire trip and we had to ask them directly for necessary information; luckily, we had a Croatian speaking person among us.
Maybe the tour is better with another boat, another crew, if they actually do have “all-inclusive” etc., but this was a rip-off.

Excellent location at the beautiful beach, taxi boat stops minutes from the bar, run every 15 minutes from Trogit to Okrug Gornji. Great sellection of drinks, view over the gorgeous blue sea and perfect service, Staff is quick, discreet and friendly. I spent a lot of time there in the warmest time of the days of my vacation.

Charter Trogir

Reviewed By Piotr R - Warsaw, Poland

Nova Eurospectra is most friendly charter company I have ever encountered. We chartered a sailing yacht Kolibri, which although not the newest one, was kept in perferct condition at very resonable price. It was very comfortable and spacious as well.
Communication worked perfectly, for instance the company sent us a new sail, when we reported our went broken.
Free Wi-fi on board was nice surprise.
If you will be chartering by them, please say Hallo! to happy Ivana at the office :-)
[PL] Wyczarterowalismy zaglowke Kolibri z Nowej Eurospectry (via Charter Navigator). Mozemy szczerze polecic ta firme: jacht, mimo ze mial juz kilka lat, utrzymany byl w idealnym stanie i bardzo wygodny. Jakosc/cena super! Ekipa czarterowa nie robi zadnych sztucznych problemow i jest bardzo pomocna np. wyslali nam nowy zagiel promem, gdy zglosilismy jego awarie.
Darmowe wi-fi na pokładzie (1GB/tydz.) było miłym zakoczeniem.
Pozdrowcie koniecznie wesola Iwane z biura!

Church of St. Theodore is located near the sea. Year of construction of the church is not known, but is referred to 1439th year. The present church was built on the site of the demolished old Croatian church. Church was declared a cultural monument in 1963. Today it is a church with the local cemetery.

Not east to find and many will give up before they get to the end just follow the road as far as you can. Then get out and walk. The rewards are excellent cliffside views and a silent location.

In Kancelirovac bay on the northwest coast of the island of Ciovo there are remains of Citadel of Saint John, raised like a fortress on the rock cliffs.

We took the ferry round from Trogir for an afternoon on the beach.
The beach was rammed with towels and chairs - many unoccupied. The sand is poor and there is an uncomfortable sell that comes in and makes it difficult for kids under 8. The food outles ar many but most offer icecreams etc.

One day boat excursion to three amazing locations in and close to Trogir archipelago. Perfect for a one day getaway for swimming and visiting island Drvenik, Solta and south side of island Ciovo. It is the most popular one day excursion in the area that includes boat trip, swimming, drinks and food, and all that for the price of 200 HRK, talk about bargain!

Reviewed By Anna F - Helsingoer, Denmark

Fina miljöer och härlig omgivning, men själva båtturen är inget jag rekommenderar. Åkte tidigt på säsongen så det var inte så trångt som det kan vara, men stökigt och dåligt organiserat. Dålig information kring båtens avgång pga att en av rederiets båtar gått sönder. Oengagerad personal. Relativt kort tid på varje ö och den blå lagunen är inte mer än just det- blått vatten men inget speciellt att snorkla efter. Dessutom tömde personalen båtens toatank precis när vi skulle åka vidare.... Fattig lunch på papptallrik tillsammans med billigt vin ... Man får vad man betalar för, så nästa gång betalar vi absolut mer.

Parish Church of St. Charles Borromeo in its present form was built in 1735. Previously, in its place was a chapel dedicated to the same saint. Today the church is a simple rectangular building with an apse and distaff with two bells on the front side.

The address is Okrug Donji, but it is shown in Okrug Gornji where I could not find it. It did help me to find a short cut somewhere else though.
