a place to return



Sutivan is located 7 km west of Supetar town and port, connected to Split by everyday ferry lines. This 15th century place has to offer, besides sacral monuments, a dozen architecturally fascinating Renaissance houses and baroque summer residences. The beaches in Sutivan are mostly pebble beaches, a sandy beach can be found in the near bay Livka. There is a beautiful park in the town center, with a line of palm-trees, as well as a garden wooded with Aleppo and cluster pines. This makes romantic summer evenings in Sutivan perfect for pleasant walks. As for gastronomy, taverns and restaurants offer local specialties and local wine. For those more keen on spending their vacation actively, the area surrounding cape Gomilica is suitable for spear-fishing. Sutivan bay offers berths for small yachts, while larger boats need be moored out of port.


The most attractive, internationally acclaimed event is undoubtedly a sport festival Vanka regule (literally translated as „Out of control“) which, for years now, attracts plenty attention of the media and an ever-increasing number of participants and spectators. This „Vanka regule“ week is by far the craziest week you can experience in Sutivan, for its days of events and competitions, and nights of entertainment and parties.


There is also an annual „Sutivan summer“ which includes various cultural, artistic and entertaining manifestations. Exhibitions of paintings, sculptures and etnographic artefacts; stage performances and concerts are held on the summer stage Kavanjin; concerts of local a cappella singing groups( „klapa“), folklore groups and dance evenings are held on the main square; painting workshops, classical music concerts in the parish church. On August 16, in honour of the town's patron saint, St. Rocco, a large festivity is organized. As part of „Sutivan summer“, fishermen fests are held weekly, with live music and fish specialties cooked by local people only for You.
