Drvenik Veliki / Luka Drvenik (Drvenik Veli)

Drvenik Veliki is a great place to relax, at one with nature on this rugged island. It’s the only town on the island but the population is less than 200. The island’s economy depends on fishing, olives and, you guessed it, tourism. But this is no swinging holiday resort.

Take a stroll though the olive groves and visit the 16th century church of St George. You can also visit the 18th century church of St Nikolas, but that one is not yet finished. Much like Marina Zirona, on which work now seems to have stopped with just the breakwater built.

You can take a swim in one of the may rocky coves nearby, but if you want a sandy beach you’ll need to go a bit further.

Drvenik Veliki does however have all you need. There is a handful of restaurants and bars, and basic provisions are available. Chill out, that’s enough.
