About Island Ciovo

Ciovo (pronounced Chyoh-voh) island is now the southern suburb of Trogir, connected to Trogir by a bridge. Only 29 sq km, in the 15th century Ciovo was a sanctuary for Trogir residents menaced by Turkish attacks. The few sights to see in Ciovo date from the 15th century. Near the village of Arbanija, 4km east of Trogir is a Dominican monastery and Church of the Holy Cross with a charming cloister refectory, and with a Gothic crucifix and choir stalls in the church. Other villages also have interesting little churches. Most people come to Ciovo for the beaches and landscape of vineyards, olive and almond plantations. The northern side of the island has pine and cypress forests while the southern side is steep and barren. Beaches are also on the northern side as well as the small beaches of Slatine and the Supetar Cove.
