The island of Solta is actually the closest to Split, but is often overlooked by tourists in favour of more 'fashionable' destinations such as Hvar, Brac and Vis. While this is a shame on the one hand (those tourists are missing out on one of Dalmatia's most relaxed destinations), perhaps the lack of mass tourism is not a bad thing, as it keeps life on Solta at a very relaxed tempo.
But what is Solta like for those with an interest to visit? A couple of great new videos from the Solta tourist board should give us a clue.
We begin with Maslinica.
And then head to Gornje Selo. Why not follow the Solta Tourist Board on Facebook for the latest updates?
