Kaprije is a car-free island for which we can say is an oasis of peace in the Šibenik archipelago. For all those who love peace, quiet and untouched nature with a beautiful blue sea. Kaprije is a great choice for exploring and enjoying nature, after time spent on numerous event in Vodice.

 

Kaprije is situated in a bay, naturally protected from strong winds and attracts a large number of sailboats and yachts. When you arrive on the island from all sides you can see the boats sailing into and sailing out. On the island you can enjoy local specialties and wine, in several restaurants. The village of Kaprije is built in the traditional Dalmatian style, with narrow streets and stone houses. Along the whole bay where it is located, there is a promenade. The promenade has street lights so it can be walked even when night falls. It’s great for recreational athletes who like to run by the sea. For those looking for solitude, Portic Beach is located on the north side of the island, where only waves and birds chirp are heard.

 

One of the sights on Kaprije is the church of St. Peter, built in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is named after the Mediterranean plant Kapara, whose buds serve as a spice. Apart from bars, restaurants and shops, there is no other content. With a large number of small bays and secluded beaches, one can certainly find a corner of peace.

 

It can be said that the island has bypassed mass tourism, so you will not find many tourists here, but only the locals. You can reach Kaprije from Sibenik by ferry, which regularly sails in the summer. For diving enthusiasts, the German military ship Francesca da Rimini of World War II sunk near Kaprije. It is located 55 meters along the northern point of Kaprije.
