From the town of Primosten and towards the southwest, Dalmatia's landscape varies. There are larger islands which are quite far apart from each other and are rich in vegetation. With the islands being so far apart, the maestral wind blows quite strongly through the canals in between the islands and, as a result, the waves get quite rough. Some of the larger islands are Brac, island of Hvar, island of Vis, Solta, Ciovo, Drvenik (Large and Small), Bisevo, and Jabuka. Each island offers great hospitality and is unique and beautiful in its own way.
Accommodation on these islands varies from hotels, campsites, apartments and villas which can be found either in a lovely secluded area or in the centre of town.
The islands of Central Dalmatia differ from one another. For example, the island of Solta is small and quiet and lies right across from the city of Split. Island of Brac is the largest island in Central Dalmatia as well as one of the most developed in regards to tourism. Some of the main tourist spots on the island are Bol, Supetar, and Mline as well as many others.
