Slano is a beautiful fishing village, with a couple of local bars, a tourist shop and a mini market.

Restaurant Mirakul


As you arrive in Slano, there is a hotel that takes up the main shingle beach but you can park to the left of the hotel (payable) and then walk to the end of the narrow road to a beautiful sandy beach with shallow, warm, very clean water and mostly very quiet too. Sunbathing was on a concreted area or the rocks but is still pleasant.

If you drive there be warned it is very narrow and any “locals” will have right of way! There is a small area at the end to park. As there are no beach facilities when you are ready to eat etc., head back to the hotel, pass in front of it and bare left. Continue along this road until you come to an area of restaurants. You can park here.

In Slano we recommend the Restaurant Mirakul which is welcome break from the sun as it is situated just off the beach on a tree covered terrace (the building doesn’t look too special but it is nice on the terrace). When you park the restaurant is on your left as you face the sea.
Mirakul offers a varied menu for all, with some different salads to choose from. It was reasonably priced, clean and service was excellent last time we visited.

Journey time 30 min approx. – a stunning coastal drive and plenty of other beaches to stop off and try en route.

Head out over the Croatian border to the roundabout at the bottom of the hill, turn right and just follow the road along the coast towards Split. When you see the sign for Slano turn off left down to the coast.
