How to get to Marina

The easiest way to reach the place is by car. The coastal road D8 will bring you all the way to the village.
At the village entrance, there is a big supermarket Tommy with affordable prices.
The parking in Marina was free in June 2022, at the time of my visit.

The alternative way to arrive at the village from Trogir is to take a local bus line 48, 49, 50, or 52 operated by Promet Split. Check the schedule on Promet's website.
Many intercity bus routes have stops in Marina as well, check them online.

Marina's tower is an interesting attraction constructed in the 15th century due to Ottoman danger, which was harassing Europe at that time.
The tower was built on a small island near the coast, but people later connected it to the land.
Other fortification objects built for the same purpose are Sibenik fortresses and defense wall in Grebastica.

The church of St. Marina is another attraction from the late Medieval period located at the entrance to the village.

Olive oil is the most prominent product of the village's agriculture. Taste it combined with the grilled fish caught by local fishermen.

The whole municipality of Marina, which includes Poljica, and Vinisce, is a great spot for road and mountain bikers since there are many trails which have been lately arranged around the peninsula.

Beaches in Marina are a combination of pebble, concrete, and rocky shapes. There are no sandy beaches.
The most beautiful one is located near the hotel Marinus. It's a pebble beach with a coffee bar.
If you want to avoid crowds on a beach during the summer season, you could walk away a bit from the centre of the place, in the forest part of the peninsula.
