How to get to Krilo

The easiest way to reach Krilo (Jesenice) is by car. The place is located just near state road D8. It takes 15 - 30 minutes to arrive from Split, depending on the traffic conditions.
The alternative to car transportation is a local bus line from Split or Omis.

Krilo is an ideal place for those who want to spend most of their vacation time at the beach. The sea is clean and ideal for swimming.
There are two pebble beaches in the place. Both of them feature beach bar and rental of deck chairs at affordable price.

There are no major nightclubs in the place, which is great for those who want to get peaceful sleep during the night. However, if you want some liveness, you can go to nearby Omis or Split, which feature high activity during the day and night.

If you decide to stay in Krilo Jesenice, it's not a bad idea to go for a day visit to Hvar, Brac, or Korcula, since the boat lines depart to these islands from the coast. Check boat lines schedule

Be sure to check with your accommodation provider if parking space is provided because there are only a few free public parking spaces in the place.
