Seget Donji a great place for summer sailing holiday
Seget Donji was a virtually unknown village, rarely cited in blogs or guides that talk about Croatia. It is, however, a pretty little settlement, near the beautiful Saldun Bay and connected to the neighboring village of Seget Vranjica and the historic city of Trogir.
Thanks to its central location in Dalmatia and its excellent range of activities, restaurants, bars, and shops, Seget Donji is becoming an attractive tourist resort. At a distance of 7 km from Split Airport and only 2 km from Trogir, the Seget Donji port is the ideal place to rent a boat.
The village of Seget Donji
Like all the villages on the coast, Seget Donji is all sloping. You will find plenty of luxurious apartments a little away, and you can reach Trogir on foot while enjoying the beaches and continuous coves. On the way to Trogir, you’ll also cross a huge yacht restoration center, and sometimes you can see the interior of these boats worth several millions of euros. What a treat!
Those who opt to visit Seget Donji for their holiday will encounter a variety of cultural, historical, and natural sites. Old stone houses, some of them now restaurants, are mostly refurbished or renovated. In the hot summer period, when its residents and visitors can hide in the pleasant shade, the interior core of the castle is enjoyable. Fans of historical monuments can visit the medieval church of St. Ilija on the top of the village, a Baroque church, or other monuments from the nearby cities of Trogir and Split, where you can also plunge into the bustling nightlife.
