As the center of the municipality, this small coastal resort on the Dalmatian coast boasts a beautiful sandy and pebble beach. The sources mention it in 1070, and the time of the old Croats, today's area of ​​Marina was called Drid, and the place itself was called Bosiljna, which is mentioned in the 9th century as part of the Trogir community. When the danger of Turkish attack loomed at the end of the 15th century, Bishop Franjo Maracel issued an order in 1495 to build Kaštela, a unique defense system, consisting of a tower on the rocks in the sea and the fortress Citadel, which was on land. In the womb, visitors will find the church of St. John the Baptist on Brce Square. Built in the 16th century, as a single-nave building on a rectangular floor plan with a square apse, a pointed vault and covered with a pile of canals. Certainly worth mentioning is the church of St. Jakov, built after the danger from the Turks, also in the 16th century, where the first list of baptisms from 1583 is found. In addition to the notable architecture, near the Marina is the cave of St. Philip and James, along the old main road. In the cave you will find a chapel, which was visited by Emperor Franz Joseph I in 1891. Numerous objects were found in it, such as prehistoric knives, terrines, cups, glasses, Roman coins, heads on reliefs from late antiquity and the like.

Being a historian i loved visiting the church of St. John the Baptist on Brce Square and the church of St. Jakov where the first list of baptisms from 1583 is found. near the Marina is the cave of St. Philip and James, along the old main road of notable architecture.
The accomodation rates at the guest house was fair especially for great money savers like me. The interior decor of the room were fabulous and guess what they also have jacuzzi in the hotel. I really loved it here.
If you are looking to visit and learn, then this is definitely the place for you. You get to enjoy the beautiful views, swim, learn and even carry home an artefact from years ago, if you so please. the restaurants and bars offer a variety of foods and drinks so you don't have to worry about starving or dehydration. It is not a crowded place but you will definitely find people who want to see the old church of St John the Baptist and the church of St Jakov. The architecture is superb and picture worthy.
The beautiful scenery of the beach was encouraging and provided a great insight in shooting my vlog. I also loved the great architectural design and art of the long entrance doors to the restaurant. Very nice.
The place has unique places to visit and we enjoyed our tour to the place. Beautiful sandy and pebble beaches with great views and we had fun with my friends. There are also several sites that we managed to visit with my friends at the place and it was a success to be there.
