The island’s main entry point is Rogač harbour, where ferries from Split tie up on the edge of a large bay. Private yachts usually anchor in nerby more private bays with rocky beaches. There are also many beautiful sleepy villages like Maslinica and Stomorska, with its pretty sheltered harbour popular with yachters.
GULET CRUISE GUIDE
THE BEST PRIVATE MARINAS, PORTS OR ANCHOR POINTS
You have 3 options on where & how you can start your cruise.
Ports: are usually crowded with lots of people and other ships, yachts & motor sailors. But the locations are best! You step out of the gulet and you are in the heart of the city. If this is what you like, it is perfect. (Your option in Šolta: Rogač, Maslinica and Stomorska)
On Anchor: this means gulet is on anchor close to the main port and you are transferred from port to gulet with a dinghy/zodiac. Some people find this uncomfortable, and it can be unconvinient for seniors, but some love the adventure. (Your option in Šolta: Donja Krušica, Šešula, Tatinja, Stračinska, Gornja Krušica, Nečujam.)

MUST SEE ATTRACTIONS
Blue Lagoon in Croatia is not your usual blue lagoon created by the coral reefs found around tropical islands forming a shallow lagoon with the crystal clear blue sea inside. There are no coral reefs in Croatia but that doesn’t mean that there are no blue lagoons. Blue lagoons in Croatia are usually formed between a number of small islands which are usually separated by the shallow lagoon between them that we like to call blue lagoons.
