This little pair of islands are the northernmost of an archipelago that includes Šolta and Brač, creating a barrier between Split and the open sea. They can be visited by ferry from Trogir, but, truth be told, there's not an awful lot to do once you get here.
Drvenik Mali (Little Drvenik), has olive trees, a population of 56 and a sandy beach that curves around the cove of Vela Rina. Drvenik Veli (Big Drvenik) has secluded rocky coves and olive trees, plus a couple of interesting churches. St George's Church dates from the 16th century and has baroque furniture and a Venetian altarpiece. Outside Drvenik Veli village is the unfinished 18th-century St Nicholas' Church, whose builder never quite got past the monumental facade.
