Alan Rogers Review
Galeb is an attractive, beachside site set beneath mature trees. The River Cetina is just to the north of the site, and the pretty port where the river meets the sea is a powerful attraction complemented by the ancient forts and pirate buildings above. A dramatic, 1,000-metre rock backdrop to the whole site reflects the light differently as the day progresses, and the superb sunsets paint it with amazing orange and red hues. The touring pitches can be a little uneven, but most have some shade. In the high season, units are very close together, and there will be little privacy; the lack of definition around the pitches no doubt exacerbates this. Though some of the services are somewhat dated, all pitches are fully serviced (16A Europlug), and long power leads may be required. Sanitary facilities are cleaned regularly but require some repair and modernisation. Care must be taken as both pools are unfenced (this seems to be the norm in Croatia). Some pitches are right at the water’s edge, from where there are views of the coast and the island of Brac.
Over sixty bungalows set back from the beach in a separate area are available for rent. There are also several tour operator pitches. The site sits between the road and the sea with a long beach frontage of gravel and sand. At the time of our most recent visit, only the main restaurant was open; however, a separate pizzeria is open in the high season with a terrace from where you can enjoy those beautiful sunsets is close to the beach. An extensive range of activities is available on site, and the interesting village of Omis is 800 m. from the gate with its many bars, restaurants and banks. Bakery items are available on-site, in addition, there is a shopping centre at the site entrance. This is a well-managed site with courteous staff in a fascinating location and can be enjoyed by the whole family. Omis bus station is about a 10-minute walk from the site and Split is about a half-hour bus trip away.
Two sanitary blocks have been renovated to a good standard and both have facilities for disabled campers. Hot water for showers is plentiful and there is a regular cleaning routine.
