A trip planned for August from 5-16
Hi! We have a trip planned for August from 5-16. We arrive in Split from Glasgow and would like to see some of the town and spend time relaxing time in the islands. What kind of mix would you suggest? We don’t like big hotels, like comfort, like a pool to cool off and love food (fish yes not meat tho) and wine. Peace yes but not remote. Thanks!
Thanks for contacting me. I will be very honest with you. You have chosen the top high season period. Split city in this period is too hot and chaotic. My advice is to opt for Split nearby neighbors. The best choice is a small fishermen village Podstrana, only 7 km from Split old city center.
Podstrana is connected with excellent local bus services to Split and it has beautiful beaches. It’s much cheaper in that period than Split city and you can find nice accommodation there from boutique hotels to private apartments and hostels.
I honestly suggest you to book in advance as you can take advantage of some interesting deals and discounts. Simply on my home page in search form enter the Podstrana name and you will find all info and booking possibilities.
Choosing Podstrana as your base you can easily visit Split city, Trogir town or nearby Omis town. From your base you can easily reach Split ferry harbor for a day tours (on your own) to Brac island (Supetar town) or to Bol town on Brac island and take a swim on famous Golden Cape beach, Hvar island with fast catamaran ships, or even Vis island. You can chose also a day tour to Omis town and Cetina river (10 km from Podstrana). More about Croatian islands!
Your trip plan is ideal for a 7 days stay for all that wish to stay out of fancy hotels, eating in small inns (konoba) that offers fresh and not expensive fish of all kinds. You will be less stressed and you will spend relaxing holidays without having to give up anything. You can enjoy Split Diocletian palace and all interesting attraction in Trogir or Hvar.
Have a nice holiday,
