The youngest village of the island, founded by building
summer houses but also by planned hotel building, Nečujam is the largest
and according to some the most beautiful cove of the island. It is the
center of the island’s tourism and with its apartment village it offers
a pleasant holiday to different types of tourists and a lot of them
are traditional visitors for decades.
The coves of Nečujam
(Piškera, Maslinica, Podkamenica, Šumpljivina and Tiha) are a great
potential for development of nautical and day-trip tourism. It is
known that the first visitors who felt the beauty of Nečujam were
Marko Marulić, the father of Croatian literature, and Petar Hektorović,
a poet and a writer. Even the emperor Diocletian knew about the
quality of the local seas of Šolta and he had his fishery in Nečujam.
The Latin name of this place is Vallis Surda – deaf cove, because
of its size. Namely, the cove of Nečujam is one of the larger on
Šolta so most of the sounds get lost in it. The best example for
that is the fact that when you come by boat to Nečujam at night
hours, you can hear the sound from the disco-club only when you
reach the shore.
This kind of natural characteristic was obviously appreciated by
great artists as Marulić and Hektorović who right here found inspiration
for their works of art. In today’s archeological localities can
be found the traces of ancient life. In the cove of Piskera the
remains of Roman farm building were found, while in the surroundings
were found graves, some pottery and money. Under the sea we can
see the remains of the walls by which the cove was enclosed and
turned into a fishery. The remains of Roman necropolis were found
in the vicinity and also near the cove of Supetar.
Today Nečujam is a modern tourist
village that is during season connected to Split a few times a day. The
ferry lands twice a week and it is connected to other parts of the island
by bus and taxi lines. Nečujam is the center of Šolta’s tourism for the
very reason of the apartment village that is a part of it.
The beach in Nečujam is the largest on the whole island. It was artificially
pebbled (according to the research small pebbles are the best to lay the
beach with). The beach is regularly maintained and cleaned and there are
also showers, two beach buffets, water slide, rent-a-boat, fast-food,
tennis courts, and table tennis.
