Island Drvenik Mali
Drvenik Mali, or as it is called by the natives the Island of Ploce is an island in Split-Dalmatia County. It is located about 10 nautical miles southwest from Trogir, and west from the island of Veliki Drvenik, from which is separated by the Strait of Drvenik door. The island is separated from the mainland by a channel that carries the name of the island and is called Drvenik Channel.
The central location of all social and economic activities on the island is the port Borak that uses its slightly indented area on the northeast coast of the island with a pier for the local ship and ferry connection, and for other small fishing and tourist boats. More recently on the island was built the first paved road several hundred meters long in the direction of Borak-bay Vela Rina.
Another extremely attractive village on the island is already mentioned Vela Rina, which is located on the south side of Drvenik Mali, on the bottom of the homonymous bay with a wonderful sandy beach.
Drvenik Mali is surrounded by beautiful beaches and clear sea. The island has retained its original appearance and has successfully avoided the devastation often caused by modern construction. The island is rich with lush Mediterranean vegetation and is almost entirely “covered” in different cultures, olive groves and carobs of superior quality.
The island has a highly indented coastline, rich in shallow water which makes it suitable for fishing and diving. North side of the island is bare and inaccessible, while the south side is framed by lush vegetation, pine trees and underbrush.The island has a shop, restaurant and bar, and is very well connected with the mainland.
Drvenik Mali is an island of peace, tranquility, unique natural beauty and exceptionally clear sea. This is the perfect destination for a vacation “away from civilization“ and is a real challenge for all modern Robinsons.
