Let’s go to the ISLAND DRVENIK, CROATIA with kid (s) !

Summer time, summer time, summer time … happiness … 🙂 … Hey guys … Could life get any better ? ( ok it probably could but this is just perfect enough ) … It’s summer time in Croatia and we are just about to hop on a ferry that’s going to take us to the island of Drvenik Mali. Buying the ticket for the ferry was quite an adventure. The port where you get into the ferry is in a small place called Seget Donji, but you can’t buy the ticket there … You have to drive through the crowd and get into Trogir to buy the ticket and than drive back to the port ( not to mention that there are no signs, what so ever, of where you could buy the ticket) . Someone might find this quite frustrating and unorganized … for me it was just a perfect oportunity to visit Trogir which I adore. Check info about the tickets and timetable of the navigation here :

Anyways Seget Donji is quite a charming place and we enjoyed it while waiting for the ferry.

Ljeeeto nam se vratilo … Uo uo uo … 🙂 … Hey ekipica … Kaj nije ovo najsavršenija stvar na svijetu … ( ok vjerojatno nije ali je ipak i više nego odlično biti baš sad baš tu ) … Ljeto je … u Lijepoj nam našoj … i mi samo što se ne ukrcamo na trajekt za Drvenik Mali. Ukrcati se na trajekt i nije baš tako jednostavno kako bi to trebalo biti ili barem kako to zvuči. Naime luka ukrcaja je u malom mjestašcu Segetu Donjem ali naravno da se tu ne kupuje karta za isti, jer onak zakaj ne … Zakaj ne na temperaturi od +100 otić kroz totalni kaos od gužve na cesti, malo do Trogira da bi kupio kartu, al to isto ako ti se posreći da pronađeš jer nigdje nema ni jedne jedine oznake ili znaka ili putokaza gdje bi se ista trebala kupiti pa se onda lagano kroz istu tu gužvu vratiti u Seget da bi se ukrcali 🙂 … Welcome to Croatia … Ok neko bi ovo mogao protumačiti kao poprilično frustrirajuće i neorganizirano ili možda to ipak možete pogledati kroz ružičaste naočale i shvatiti to kao savršenu priliku da posjetite Trogir kojeg i više nego obožavamo.

Uglavnom Seget Donji je jedno stvarno simpatično mjestašce u kojem smo uživali dok smo čekali ukrcaj.

After we sailed away, our first stop was Veli Drvenik and that is where we realized that this is going to be one magnificent week. I really can’t remember the last time that I saw nature as beautiful as here and the water as pure and as turquoise blue as this one … I can’t wait to disembark on Drvenik Mali and to hit the exploration. And you … Veli Drvenik … are definetly on our bucket list from now on … 😉

Nakon što smo isplovili prvo stajalište nam je bilo Veli Drvenik i već tu nam je postalo jasno koliko će ovo biti dobar tjedan. Ne sjećam se kada sam zadnji put vidjela toliko prekrasnu prirodu, toliko tirkizno plavo i čisto more … jedva čekam da se iskrcamo na Drveniku Malom i krenemo u istraživanje. A tebe Veli Drvenik definitivno stavljamo na našu bucket listu 😉

And here we are … here we are … Hello Drvenik Mali … For starters a few basic info about the island … Drvenik Mali is a small island which is situated about 10 nautical miles southwest from Trogir and west from the island Veli Drvenik. The surface of the island is 3,43 km². The island is inhabited and that mostly on its central and eastern part and it counts 50-60 inhabitants, which are inhabited in few villages. The “capital” village is Borak, but the island has some more villages such as Vela Rina, Mala Rina, Petomavar and Dolići right next to the coast and Velika Kuknara and Mala Kuknara which are a bit away from the coast.
The island has very little or almost no traffic cause there’s no modern roads … recently Drvenik Mali got his first asphalted road only a few hundred meters long on the road from Borak to Vela Rina bay … All other roads are kinda “forrest roads” or as we call it in Croatia “goat track”, and that is one of the things that makes this place so magical and contributes to the possibility of having one really relaxed vacation. Drvenik Mali is connected with Trogir and Seget Donji by a ferry. The port Borak is the main port of the island and the central location of all social and economic activities. The potential of tourism developement is still not used on a high level (there’s no waterworks or sewerage system). But that is also the reason why’s the island surrounded with beautiful beaches and clean and pure sea, it is still not devastated with “modern construction”.
The island is rich with olive trees and judas trees of top quality. Extra virgin olive oil is well known and sold around the country. Drvenik Mali is a great place to take a vacation “away from civilization” cause it has a lots of untouched natural beauty and therapeutical mediteranian plants.

I evo naaas … evo naaas … Hello Drvenik mali … Za početak nekoliko osnovnih informacija o otoku … Drvenik Mali je otok koji se nalazi oko 10 nautičkih milja jugozapadno od Trogira te zapadno od otoka Drvenika Velog. Površina otoka je oko 3,43 km². Otok je nastanjen i to uglavnom na središnjem i istočnom dijelu te broji 50 do 60 stanovnika, koji nastanjuju nekoliko zaselaka. Glavno je naselje Borak raštrkanog tipa, a na otoku postoji još nekoliko zaselaka, kao što su priobalni Vela Rina, Mala Rina, Petomavar i Dolići te od obale udaljeni Velika Kuknara i Mala Kuknara (Prigomila).

Na otoku se slabo prometuje automobilima jer zapravo ni nema baš previše asfaltiranih cesta, tek od nedavno postoji samo asfaltirana cesta od nekoliko stotina metara na potezu Borak – uvala Vela Rina. Sve ostalo čine takozvani “šumski putevi” iliti “kozje staze” , a baš to je ono što čini posebnost ovog mjesta i doprinosi mogućnosti jednog potpuno opuštenog odmora. Prometno je povezan trajektnom linijom s Trogirom i Donjim Segetom. Luka Borak je glavna otočka luka i središnje mjesto svih društvenih i gospodarskih aktivnosti.  Uvjeti za razvoj turizma su zasada još nedovoljno iskorišteni (nema vodovoda niti kanalizacije). Ali baš iz tog razloga je otok okružen predivnim plažama i čistim morem. Može se tvrditi da još za sada nije devastiran tzv. “modernom gradnjom”.

Otok obiluje nasadima maslina i rogača vrhunske kvalitete. Ekstra djevičansko maslinovo ulje je na daleko poznato i prodaje se diljem Hrvatske. Drvenik Mali je pogodan za odmor “daleko od civilizacije” jer obiluje netaknutim prirodnim ljepotama i ljekovitim mediteranskim biljem.
