Sevid is a small Croatian tourist destination located between Rogoznica and Split. Just like Vinisce, Sevid is located on a peninsula which is part of the municipality of Marina.

The first part of the trip to Sevid was riding on Croatian road D8. I went there from Split. When I arrived in Svinca, which is a small place located near D8 road, I saw a sign showing Sevid to right. I had to drive 7 more kilometres. That part of a trip was a little bit uncomfortable due to the narrow road and many hills. Furthermore, the road was missing traffic signs, so I couldn't immediately guess where is the centre of Sevid. Accessibility is likely to be the biggest flaw of Sevid as a tourist destination.

After a little bit exhausting arrival to Sevid, it was time for me to take a walk in the place. I must say I was immediately impressed by the natural beauty of the peninsula. It is pearl of Croatia tourism. The sea was crystal clean and views of the peninsula with sunset were great. I liked that aspect of the place.
On the other hand, I could notice that Sevid lacks some of the necessary tourist facilities. There was only one bar and only one restaurant in the whole place. The road above the coast was not asphalted in some places. There was a service of renting chairs, boats and jet skis available.
Tours to Vis, Brac and Hvar were not organized. If you wanted to go for a day visit to these places, you would need first go to the Split ferry port to take a ferry ride.

The whole Sevid coast is like one big beach. It consists of natural, concrete and pebble beaches. Some of them are arranged, yet some are wilder. You can choose the one you prefer more.

As previously mentioned, you cannot take any organised tour from Sevid. But if you are arriving by car, you can (and should) go for a day visit to Split, Trogir and Sibenik. These places feature beautiful cultural attractions which should be visited because they are less than 60 kilometres away from Sevid.

Sevid is a small heaven for those people who look for quiet and affordable accommodation. It's beauty, clean sea and nice coast are its main aces. The only drawback is its accessibility and narrow roads. If that's okay with you, I believe you can have a great vacation in Sevid.
