How to get to Poljica

The easiest way to reach the place is by car. You need to drive on the coastal road D8. 10 kilometres south of Trogir, you will notice the sign to turn to the village.
The other option is to take a bus from Split, Trogir, or any other major Dalmatian town.
The nearest airport is Split Airport, located less than 10 kilometres away from Poljica.

Beaches in Poljica are mostly pebble and concrete.
Some of the apartments are located just a few meters away from the sea, which is ideal for those looking to spend most of their time on the beach.

There is a coffee bar and ice cream shop just above the beach, where you can enjoy your favourite drink after a swimming session.
