Rogač is the main port on the island Šolta and it is actually the combination of three smaller bays : Kasjun, Banja and Rogač. Kasjun Bay is located west of the pier. It is ideal for guests looking for privacy and tranquility, and beautiful pine forest provides shade in the hot summer days. A Spacious beach, Euroclub and many fun sea activities converted bay Banja into a large summer playground for children. Bay Rogač is the central bay, and it has a dock for ferries and catamaran. There is also a charter base and a spacious central beach. At the time of ferry arrivals and departures, especially in summer, Rogač is packed with guests and locals who are rushing to their destinations. In Rogač there is the only gas station on the island and the harbor master's office .
Thanks to its beautiful nature, beaches, position, and excellent transport connections, Rogač has become a destination in itself. It is ideal if you want to explore the whole island during your vacation, and yet be close to a beautiful beach with crystal clear sea, nature and silence since there are no night clubs nearby. After morning coffee and the rush during ferry peak hours, you can visit the farmers' market in Grohote which is located only two kilometers from Rogač.
You can go to local tourist agencies and decide what you want to do that day - rent a boat , scooter , go on a trip or visit a family farm. You can also visit the collection of ethnographic objects exposed in the house of Nicholas Mateljan.
The village Rogač was established as a port for Grohote in late eighteenth century and in the beginning there were only fishing huts and taverns there. At the location Banje the remains of a Roman '' villa rustica'' from ancient times were discovered. The remains dating to 3rd - 4th century were discovered with walls of thermae, and fragments of mosaics and tombs. On the northwest side of the bay the walls have been observed in the sea, which probably belonged to an ancient pier .
In the nineteenth century, church of St. Theresa of Avila was built in the middle of the bay, and somewhat later '' kažela '' was built for disinfection of vessels and storage of fishing nets. Late in the nineteenth century the Mladinov family built their country house with small gardens and pine trees in Rogač. In 1920 a small shipyard was established, which is nowadays operated by the family in the third generation.
