Solta Island lies 10 miles SW of the city of Split on the mainland coast of Croatia, immediately W of the much larger island of Brac, from which it is separated by a channel barely half a mile wide. Although a relatively small island, with an area of under 60 square kilometers, it has a population of around 1,700 and caters well for the visiting yachtsman, with three harbours all providing laid moorings, water and electricity and several sheltered anchorages around its coast.

U. Šešula

43°23.53′N, 16°12.6′E
U. Sesula is a long and narrow inlet immediately S of the harbour of Maslinica. It is a very popular anchorage in the summer and it will be necessary to anchor wherever you can find space and take a line ashore. Depths range from 3.0 metres to 8.0 metres and the holding is good in mud and sand. Shelter in the inlet is good in all winds, although strong SW winds send in a slight swell. Restaurants ashore.


U. Straćinska

43°20.22′N, 16°21.93′E
U. Stracinska is the westernmost of three V-shaped inlets at the SE tip of Solta Island. There is a good anchorage in a small cove on the W side of the inlet with a line ashore to one of the bollards supplied. Depths here are 10-12 metres and the shelter is good in all but S winds. There are no facilities ashore.

U. Gornja Krušica

 43°21.42′N, 16°21.93′E
U. Gornja Krusica lies on the NE coast of the island, a mile or so SE of the harbour of Stomorska. A yacht can anchor at the head of the inlet in 5.0 – 7.0 metres, with a line ashore if necessary. Holding is good in sand and the inlet is sheltered from all except E winds. There are no facilities ashore.
