Back in March 2009, we wrote a series of postings, on sister blog Croatia Online, about the island of Šolta.
It’s a gorgeous unspoilt island, very close to Split - full of olive groves and secluded bays, and great for spectacular sunsets, particularly in the west facing bay of Maslinica.
It was in Maslinica that we spent most of our time as we’d been invited to come and take a look at the newly refurbished Martinis Marchi hotel.
Once a castle, with intermittent use as a 50 bedroom hotel, it was very tasteful restored, with no expense spared, to provide just six expansive luxury suites.
Now, finally, the marina attached to it has had its own makeover and is ready to receive visitors in style.
Facilities include showers, reception and a café as well as access to the hotel restaurant.
The breakwater of some 90 metres in length, with a red light at the end, protects 50 full service berths for yachts up to 30 metres in length. Larger yachts can moor on the outside of the breakwater.
