On its SE part it is only two km distant from the cape Marjan (in Split), on its northern part it is connected to the mainland with a big bridge and a small bascule bridge in the old centre of Trogir, and actually Trogir spread itself onto the island. Besides the portion of Trogir, on the island there are several villages: Arbanija, Žedno, Okrug Gornji, Okrug Donji, Mavarstica, Slatine and Prizidnica.
