Only a short trip SE of Split
on the W side of the island of Solta
are two of our favorite places: Maslinica
and Sesula Bay
: In Maslinica
there is a small but trés chic marina for only about 50 yachts that belongs to an old palace that has been turned into a high end luxury hotel Martinis Marchi
with a superb restaurant. The restaurant offers also maybe the best breakfast within a 100 miles if you are craving for some pampering after a few days of sailing. The marina costs about the same as the ACI marinas. While the very little village is cute, it offers not too much apart from the good and safe Martinis Marchi Marina
and the restaurant. Shopping is possible but do not expect too much.
Just around the corner over the hill you will find the Sismis
restaurant and cocktail bar in the Sesula Bay
. In front of the restaurant there are only a few mooring balls and if you are travelling in the busy season it makes sense to call and make a reservation. The bay is beautiful, the water is Caribbean style clear and the venue offers good food for reasonable prices combined with an amazing view over the bay…we love it!
