Island Hop from Brac to Solta… in Just 20 Minutes!

Central Dalmatia is blessed with four amazing islands, and many unforgettable holidays have been enjoyed over the years on Brac, Hvar, Solta and Vis.

With the greater mobility of the modern tourist, island hopping is growing in popularity, and so are the connections. Previously it was usually necessary to go via Split if you wanted to go from one island to the other, but some island routes are direct.

The latest is a new catamaran connection from Rogac on Solta to Milna on Brac. The new service takes just 20 minutes between Solta and Brac, allowing tourists a quick transfer and opportunity to explore even more Dalmatian island beauty.

The catamaran sails from Split at 18:30 to Rogac and continues on to Milna. It spends the night there and sails in the morning at 06:25 to Rogac and then to Split.

A Strong December Ends a Record Number for Central Dalmatia

2017 was the busiest ever in Central Dalmatia, and who knows what 2018 will bring? With more airlines than ever announcing routes to Split, the coming season promises to be a great one.

Apart from the traditional summer month tourism, Central Dalmatia has been working hard to attract visitors in the shoulder and winter months. With excellent weather, a great cultural and adventure offer, and outstanding food and wine to be sampled, Central Dalmatia out of season is becoming increasingly attractive.

And tourists are coming! December’s official figures have been released and the last month of the year followed the same pattern as the rest of 2017 – a significant rise on the bumper year that was 2016.

December 2017 saw 24,214 arrivals to Central Dalmatia, with an impressive 68,819 overnight stays, an 8% increase on the previous year.

What will the statistics be like for December 2018?

Voting Has Begun for European Best Destinations 2018 – Vote Hvar

It is the sunniest island in Europe, the birthplace of organised tourism in Europe, often called one of the ten most beautiful islands in Europe, and the island with the most UNESCO heritage in the world. But will the island of Hvar be crowned with the new title of European Best Destination 2018?

The success of Advent in Zagreb, which has won Best Christmas Market in Europe for three years in a row is a sign of the positive impact the European Best Destinations website can have on a destination, and the island of Hvar has a very strong chance of winning.

Hvar is one of 20 destinations in Europe in contention, with some European heavyweights such as London, Paris, Barcelona and Vienna, and some regional competition in the form of Kotor in Montenegro and Bohinj in Slovenia.
