As the island of Čiovo is connected with the mainland with two bridges (in Trogir), it is a very accessible island that offers many opportunities for interesting holidays. The older bridge is located in the center of Trogir, and the newly constructed bridge (opened in 2018) is located outside of Trogir. Except for the beautiful beaches, it is surrounded by many historical and cultural sights worth visiting including the UNESCO World Heritage site the historic city of Trogir, historic complex with the Diocletian palace in Split (also under UNESCO World Heritage), and Klis fortress. We recommend cycling tours on Čiovo and daily boat trips to the islands of Šolta and Drvenik Veliki, where is located magical Blue Lagoon. Accommodation on the island is mainly offered in private accommodation (apartments, rooms, holiday homes...).
