The town of Omis is located in the centre of Dalmatia, and it is easily reachable from all over the world, mainly thanks to the vicinity of the town of Split, the main transportation centre in Dalmatia. Split has an international airport (SPU), third largest ferry port in Mediterranean through which is connected with Italy well and newly built, modern highway that connects it to European highway network. Enter the town of your origin below to get quick directions on how to get to Omis and approximate duration of the journey.
The town of Omis is located just 25 kilometres south from the town of Split. In year 2004. new, modern highway has been built from Split to Zagreb that connected Dalmatia with the rest of the Europe. Omis is connected to the highway with 3 main directions:
through the town of Split to Dugopolje entrance to highway
through the hinterland of Omis to Bisko entrance to highway
through Dubci near Pisak, a junction on the road to Makarska, to Sestanovac entrance to highway
We recommend the road through Dugopolje to Split if you are going to places on the western side of the Omis riviera like Podstrana, Krilo Jesenice, Sumpetar, Duce. However, if you are going to the town of Omis or further east, you should avoid this road, and specially in high season and Saturdays. In summer season the road through the town of Omis is very crowded, and you should avoid it and use two other roads to get to highway. The road through the hinterland of Omis to Bisko should be used if you are going to villages in the hinterland, and it is good alternative to the above road through Split. If you are going to the places on the eastern part of Omis riviera like Pisak, Marusici, Mimice, Medici, Stanici, Nemira, then you should exit the highway in Sestanovac, and turn right on the junction of Dubci. In any case, you should avoid driving through the town of Omis as much as possible, in high tourist season (months of July and August).
