Sample Page - Kaštel Gomilica

Not quite the same as looking at the glorious glossy technicolour version (we've just seen the real thing - the latest addition to the cruising companion series and it looks great) but this sample page will give you an idea of the layout.
The page covers Kaštel Gomilica, one of the seven "Kaštel" villages, each with its own castle, between Trogir and Split. It's the site of one of Croatia's newest marinas, Marina Kaštela, which we spotted in the early stages of development four years ago.
The overview charts, earlier on in the chapter, show the approach so the chart here is very localised and detailed. The navigation notes will tell you which landmarks to look out for and highlight any special considerations. Under the Berthing heading you'll find all you need to know about depths, capacity, electricity and water supplies, prices and contact details. Useful Information, at the end of the section, tells you more about the marina's facilities and any other nautical facilities in the area, where to find cashpoints, post offices, supermarkets and shops, transport connections, entertainment, cultural attractions and the lowdown on the best places to eat. The photos aim to help with navigation, where possible, as well as giving the reader a feel for the location.
Clearly there's more to say on some locations than others but we've done our best to give all the essential facts on every marina, port, harbour and anchorage in the area - at the last count there were around 300, each with their own individual charms.
