THREE SUPER RESORTS

Waterside or Countryside options

Sibenik Croatia

Biograd Na Moru

The name translates as Biograd on the Sea, very appropriate! On the waterfront there are good stone and pebble beaches here, and as you would expect, there is a good choice of bars, shops and restaurants in this little community.

With marinas on the Adriatic seaward side and hills and mountains behind, this is a very pretty spot for a holiday in Croatia.

The kings of Croatia had their seat here over 1000 years ago, so the area is full of history. The cities of Zadar (29kms) and Sibenik (47kms) are very attractive for day out exploring Croatia’s history and for shopping.

Charming Waterfront resort

The main beach holds a Blue Flag award and it boasts a large saltwater pool where entertainment and concerts take place in season. There are pretty islands offshore which add to the lovely views. Within easy reach are 3 Croatian National Parks for days out in truly beautiful natural surroundings, but if you prefer city life Sibenik and Zadar will be your chosen excursion.

* Choice of bars, café’s and restaurants

Vodice

Vodice Pronounce it “vodd –itsay”. In the past this was a fishing village, which has now become an extremely attractive resort.

There are some good beaches here, mostly stone or pebble, and in the busy summer months they are quite popular. To escape the crowds, jump on the quick ferries that go to the small islands offshore: Prvic and Zlanin have quiet rather charming villages to explore.

The “action” is around the two harbours with a fabulous choice of restaurants. There are also a few shops for souvenirs and holiday purchases.

If you wish to explore more of this area on your Croatia holiday, Vodice is a good base from which to take excursions to nearby National Parks such as the Krka with its Waterfalls, the Kornati Islands, the beautiful historic town of Sibenik and the major city of the area, Zadar. Don’t miss the small, picturesque centre of Vodice with very interesting museums and monuments to explore.

Sibenik

Locals pronounce it “shibb – enick”.This  very beautiful town has a fascinating history combined with a youthful “vibe”. It sits on a large natural bay in a picturesque area of the Adriatic coast.

The Adriatic sea provides a natural way to visit the Kornati Islands (there are nearly 150 fo them, very few are inhabited), this excursion shows just how beautiful this area is on a Croatia holiday. Inland the Krka National Park is a ‘must visit’ delight with numerous waterfalls along the river.

The origins of Sibenik go back to the 10th Century, so as one would expect, there are some glorious historical treasures to visit, the most notable being the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. The old town square is also a treasure to enjoy.

Music features at various times during summer months with festivals of classical, choral, jazz and blues being held. For glimpse of the wild a visit to Dubrava Falconry Centre is a must. Many species of birds of prey are here to see – this is a thrilling experience for young and old alike, just a few minutes from Sibenik.

In this area we feature Crvena Luka which offers hotel and apartment holidays in Croatia.
