Thanks to its central geographical position to the eastern Adriatic coast, Trogir is one of the most important Croatian tourist ports for those who decide to visit the Dalmatian coast, Montenegro, and beyond.

Where is Trogir located?

Trogir is located in Dalmatia, a Croatia region overlooking the Adriatic Sea, and precisely in its central part, the one bordered by the rivers Krka to the north and Neretva to the south. Its proximity to another important Croatian city, Split, makes Trogir easily accessible by air. The Split International Airport is in fact only a few kilometers from its historic center.


What are the characteristics of this marina?

Moorings available in the port of Trogir are essentially two:

It is indeed possible to moor directly along the quay or even in front of the historic center, with the possibility of using electricity and running water. For those who opt for this choice, we recommend positioning in the eastern part as it is less busy by tourist traffic both people on land and boats in the water.

Alternatively, there is an ACI marina located on the other side of the canal. The marina has 180 places in the water for boats with a maximum draft of 18 meters. It offers a variety of services including technical assistance, a petrol station, various charter agencies, and a restaurant.


What to visit nearby?

Its strategic position has made Trogir a town with a long history. Both the Greeks first and the Romans then used the port as a center of trade, especially for the nearby production of high-quality white marble. The influence of the Venice Republic was very strong too and is still visible in the city’s architecture.

Today Trogir is a true medieval jewel of over 2,000 years enclosed within walls and stands on a small islet connected to the mainland. For the impressive number of Baroque and Renaissance buildings, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Its historic center is very special, enclosed in a small island protected by a wall, connected by two bridges to the mainland and to another island to the south, the island of Čiovo. Its narrow streets overlook splendid Romanesque and Renaissance buildings, dating back to the period of the city’s greatest splendor.


The architectural jewel of Trogir is the wonderful San Lorenzo Cathedral, built between the 13th and 15th centuries by the Venetians. It is possible to climb the bell tower, which is 47 meters high, to enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the nearby islands.

The most popular beach around Trogir is Okrug Gornji on the island of Čiovo. This 2 km long pebble beach, named Copacabana, can be reached on foot thanks to the bridge that connects it to the old city. The closest beach to the center of Trogir is Pantun, a sand and pebble beach on the estuary of the Patan River.
