Sumpetar in Croatia is a small tourist village situated on the western border of Omis Riviera. It is located 6 kilometers west from Omis, in the direction of Split. From Sumpetar you can easily reach Omis and Split (20 kilometers to the west), either using many local buses or by car. Sumpetar has a nice small port where there are many old wooden newly renovated sailing ships which are now used primarily for tourism, and in the past were mainly used as merchant and cargo ships. Sumpetar and nearby area of Krilo Jesenice have very long tradition of sailing and ship building which is preserved even until today - making this area the center of the biggest tourist sailing fleet in Adriatic. You will not find yachts and similar modern ships here, only old wooden sailing ships renovated to provide luxury and unforgettable experience of the Adriatic sea. Truth be told, in several past years some shipowners have turned to a new trend in sailing and cruising, which are small luxury cruisers (25 - 40 meters), made primarily out of steel.
Sumpetar lies in as small bay, protested from northern Bura winds. It is located by the main road, so families with small children need to be careful about that.
