Old town of Trogir

The island of Čiovo lies off the mainland coast of Croatia two miles SW of the harbour of Split. A relatively narrow channel at the N of the island separates it from the mainland. In the middle of the channel lies a small island occupied by the town of Trogir which is connected to Čiovo by a road bridge (which does not open anymore).

Čiovo is virtually a suburb of Trogir. While the island itself has its attractions, its main appeal to visiting yachts is as a base for visiting the World Heritage listed site of Trogir.

The ACI Marina Trogir is situated on the N coast of the island and there is one further small harbour and four anchorages around its shores.

Since 2018 the island is directly connected to the mainland with a new bridge located in about 1 km East in about 0.6M E the old Trogir bridge.

Danger: The bridge may be not drafted on your map yet. See [[Trogir#Navigation|Trogir] for further details.


Split is the nearest all-year round port of entry. During the summer, Hvar and, if arriving from N, Primošten on the mainland are also ports of entry.


There are two berthing options on the island: 2 marinas in the town of Trogir and a small harbour of Slatine on the N side of the island.



Harbour icon Slatine [[Čiovo#Slatine|Slatine]] 43°29.969'N, 016°20.392'E
The approach to Slatine is free of dangers. Depths in the approach are 5.0 - 6.0 metres and in the harbour entrance 4.0 metres. Visiting yachts berth wherever they can find space on the inside of the E breakwater. There is space here for 3-4 yachts in depths of 3.0 - 4.0 metres. The shelter is good in all conditions but N winds. No facilities on the breakwater. Restaurant and café/bar ashore. Shops in the village, half a mile away.
