Okrug Beach (Okrug Gornji)

The Okrug Beach is the most popular beach on the Trogir riviera. It’s just a couple of miles from the center of Trogir. Okrug is easy reached by the road which runs down the west cost of the island of Ciovo. This 2 kilometer-long gravel beach is also called “Copacabana” because of its popularity. The vast number of beach bars and restaurants along the shore keeps this place buzzing into the night. They also provide daytime refreshment.

If you’re looking for something more active, there is a water-sports center. 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.
