- location_on Kaštela, South Dalmatia, Croatia
Kaštela is a city in southern Dalmatia, located between the cities of Split and Trogir, in the Bay of Kaštela. The bay and the city owe their name to the many castles built along the coast to defend from the attacks of the Ottomans. The city was in fact born from the consolidation of seven small castles and some of the fortified towns on the shore of the sea. Each of the seven villages, that make up the city Kastela, bear the name of the Castle: Kaštel Gomilica, Kaštel Kambelovac, Kaštel Novi, Kaštel Sućurac, Castel Kaštel Štafilić, Kaštel Stari, Kaštel Lukšić. The castle Vitturi, dating back to the sixteenth century is very fascinating and particular as it is connected to the mainland by a small bridge and seems to almost emerge from the sea. In the immediate vicinity is the beautiful garden-park Vitturi. Also other places of interest bear witness to the rich, varied and interesting history of these places, contested between some of the greatest powers in history. The mild and pleasant climate of this region is complemented by the variety of beaches lay to the area west of the Seven Castles, including the beach of Bile, considered to be among the most beautiful in this area and the beach Gabie is very unique, due to its position near the fortress of Nehaj. The marina of Kaštela is one of the more recent and ample in the Adriatic Sea and is one of the main ports for the sailing boats. Protected by the mountain Kozjak in the north and the Marjan peninsula in the south-east, its extraordinary geographical position in the centre of the Adriatic Sea combined with a building plan, carefully thought out and executed, allows the marina of Kaštela to be a safe harbour for boats, that is easily accessible from the surrounding cities. From here, you can rent a boat from our charter that will let you navigate the shore and enjoy your perfect mediterranean holiday.
