Why stay here ...

Located on the convergence of the Adriatic and the River Cetina, this attractive campsite benefits from a superb rocky backdrop which reflects the magnificent sunsets in oranges and reds. Its position makes it the ideal place to take advantage of a range of water sports including jet skiing, surfing and kayaking, with a large beach for guests.

The level touring pitches benefit from some shade provided by mature trees, with several pitches offering views of the offshore island of Brac. The site has a good restaurant and pizzeria, while there’s more bars and restaurants in Omis, 800m away.

An afternoon can be pleasantly spent exploring the local shops at Omis, and regular buses to Split depart from the road outside the campsite. Here visitors can explore the fortress-like complex of Diocletian's Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), amidst the white walls of Croatia’s second largest city.

Very average

We stayed here early May 2019. Check in was efficient and the staff we're good. Our pitch was in a poor state. Weeds were knee high and there was an open trench running right across it. We complained and it was dealt with immediately. The site has its own beach and is ideally placed for access to Split via public bus and Omis. Sanitary block was clean and in good repair. The bar area was lovely We didn't use the restaurant because it is very close to Omis town. Which is small but full of character. A few good beach bars and restaurants. The problem is the site is surrounded with mobile bungalows which at the time of our visit were full with sports teams in their early teens. Well behaved but certainly not peaceful. Given the amount of sports facilities on and surrounding the site I think this must be a regular thing. Despite the presence of security on site some women were able to access the site and approach your outfit trying to sell you clothing etc. However for families with older children this site is probably ideal. Just a note the swimming pool is much smaller than its photograph makes it appear. It very nice but it is positioned right between the bar and restaurant. So if you are using it you are on full view of everyone eating lunch. Ok as a stop over. Not the standard I would expect from a recommended site.

Lovely location right on the beach

This site was not very busy (May) and we were allocated a great pitch, virtually on the beach. I would say what grass there was was pretty rough, but there was water in a covered trap on the pitch, the toilet facilities were spotless (I saw lots of evidence of the cleaner) and the pool & bar were right on the beach too. The pretty old town of Omis was within walking//cycling distance - the campsite being on the outskirts of the modern town, and the bus to Split was just out on the main road, although somewhat unreliable timewise, and not so regular. The bus went the other way to the charming resort of Makarska. I would recommend this site - we had no problems at all except for the copious amounts of fluff blowing off the trees and into the van!!

Good for a short stop

we stayed here as a base to explore the local area. The pitches are large and clearly marked out but there is no space between them. we have a small van so this wasn't a problem, we had plenty of space outside. IF you have a very large van and end up next to another large vehicle you might feel a little crowded. It was the start of low season so it was busy but not full, mostly older/retired people and a few families with young children. The shower/washing/toilet facilities were pretty standard but very clean and had everything you need. The site felt well looked after and clean, we saw plenty of cleaners and ground staff around. it has its own private beach with activities if you like that sort of thing (boats, jet ski, windsurf). There is a restaurant which is the higher side of average for price and food is average but good if you don't want to cook. It is a very short walk to Omis town where there are shops and restaurants. We took a bus to Split and a bus to Makarska. Buses are hourly but run all day and late night from Split. It was worth taking a bus as it would be hard to park a large van in the town and parking is expensive. The bus stop is right by the campsite too. Overall it is good for a few nights but I wouldn't like to go in peak season as it would be super crowded. Good base for exploring Split/Makarska/Brac/Hvar and booking through the club site we had a very good price. The downside was we had to pay both tourist tax and a registration fee in cash at the site. Tourist tax is usual but registration fee was unexpected!

Could be better

This site has a lot of potential but seem to be focusing on static cabins. The camping pitches seem to have been neglected. The grass (such as it was) was not cut at all during our stay and was therefore long and unsightly. The sanitary blocks were a bit dated but the cleaners worked hard to keep them clean. The site was easy to find and the location was excellent.

Disappointing

Location: Site well signposted off the D8 close to the edge of Ormis.  Medium sized site with 350 pitches of varying sizes from 70 m sq to 120 m sq. We used this as an overnight halt but didn’t want to stay for any longer. Sanitary facilities are reasonably well fitted out but were not clean.  There is a bar and restaurant on site.

Response from the Caravan Club:

Thank you for reviewing this site on line we are glad to hear that it was easy to find.    We have contacted the site regarding the cleanliness issues and they have replied with the following explanation.

Response from Galeb:

Dear Sir/s, we are very sorry to hear you had a bad experience. The campsite is situated in town, walking distance from the old part. We have min. 70m2 pitches, sandy beach and shallow sea and restaurant at the beach. We have two sanitary facilities, and our cleaning ladies work there. Our staff clean the sanitary facilities a few times a day. Of course they are trying their best to manage all facilities during the whole day. This year we will pay extra attention to improve our service and equipment and we hope you will be pleasantly surprised.
