Okrug Beach

Okrug Beach (Okrug Gornji)

The Okrug Beach is the most popular beach on the Trogir riviera. Situated no more than a couple of miles from the center of Trogir it is easy reached by the road which runs down the west cost of the island of Ciovo, to Okrug Gornji. This 2 kilometer long gravel beach is also called “Copacabana” because of its popularity. The vast number of beach bars and a few restaurants along the shore keeps this place buzzing into the night, as well as providing daytime sustenance and refreshement.

If you’re looking for something more active than just soaking up the sun, there is a water-sports center with a complete range of water sports on offer. To get there you can either walk or take a water taxi from Trogir, these run every 30 minutes, starting from mid-June, and cost 15 kune each way (around $3) per person.

From tennis courts, mini golf, a jogging track through pine woods, soccer pitches, volleyball and basketball courts to various water sports like jet ski, parascending, inner tubes, banana boat, water skiing, wind surfing and sailing.
