Punta Maslinica Beach
In the place Maslinica, on the island of Solta, there is the beach Punta. There is a beautiful promenade to the beach, and we can say it is one of the most popular. By boat or boat you can go to the adventure around the islets, on the beach Punta you can find beach bar, props for sports activities and facilities for children.

Some of the traditional dishes we recommend you to try are: Black risotto, Dalmatian smoked ham, Octopus under the lid, Fish brudet, Dalmatian pasticada and various types of fresh grilled fish with vegetables.
For dinner – and the best restaurant on Šolta in our view – visit Restaurant Pasarela in Luka Rogač (Rogač Bay) on the opposite side of the small island. The staff here is on top of it, and the chef serves up a wealth of delicious local fare, like octopus salad, shrimp buzara, pasta, risotto, and – of course – freshly caught Adriatic fish.
