The town is in Croatia, in the county of Split-Dalmatia. It can be found at the western end of Marina Bay, 12 kilometres from Trogir. Thanks to its favourable location, it is a perfect starting point when exploring Ciovo and Drvenik Veli islands nearby.
St. Jacob Cave near Marina gave shelter to people in prehistoric times. Illyrian and Greek settlers used to live in the village in the ancient times, and the Romans conquered the territory in the 4th century B.C. Croatians’ ancestors arrived in Marina in the 7th century. The danger of Turkish attacks was higher by the second half of the 15th century, so the bishop of Trogir had a tower built-in 1495. The population settled around it, that is how the settlement was established and named after St. Marina. Through its history, the town belonged to the Republic of Venice, then the Habsburg Empire and it was under French rule in 1813. After the fall of Napoleon, the Habsburg Empire ruled again, until the end of World War I.
Marina became a town in 1823 during the time of Austrian rule because the territories called Drvenik, Sevid and Račice were connected. It belonged to Trogir in 1866 and became part of the Kingdom of Italy after World War I; later it belonged to the Serbian-Croatian-Slovenian Kingdom and then Yugoslavia. Locals’ main profession was always fishing and agriculture. The town is located on the excellent ground, that is why its surroundings are full of fruit plantations. Beside the latter, growing olive and tourism also play a crucial role in their lives.
The Middle Dalmatian resort has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. The average annual temperature is 19.4°C at its highest and 16°C at its lowest. Most of the precipitation comes in November. We recommend that you visit Marina anytime between May and October.
