Ciovo (pronounced  Chyoh-voh) island is now the southern suburb of Trogir, connected to Trogir by a bridge. See Ciovo Island on a satellite map of Trogir.

Only 29 sq km, in the 15th century Ciovo was a sanctuary for Trogir residents menaced by Turkish attacks.

The few sights to see in Ciovo date from the 15th century. Near the village of Arbanija, 4km east of Trogir is a Dominican monastery and Church of the Holy Cross with a charming cloister refectory, and with a Gothic crucifix and choir stalls in the church. Other villages also have interesting little churches.

Most people come to Ciovo for the beaches and landscape of vineyards, olive and almond plantations. The northern side of the island has pine and cypress forests while the southern side is steep and barren. Beaches are also on the northern side as well as the small beaches of Slatine and the Supetar Cove on the eastern side and some small sand and pebble beaches in the west. The east side has an uninspiring view of the industrial sector of Split. The west side is sunnier and more attractive. Most lodging is on the west side of Ciovo.

Beachgoers will enjoy the nicely arranged Laganini Beach Club where you can relax on lounge chairs and sip fruity cocktails on the southwest side of the island.

Accommodation on Ciovo Island

There are no large hotels on Ciovo Island but there are some enchanting guesthouses. See below.

If you prefer hotels, I recommend the familial Villa Katerina, right near the beach.
