Vodice port
Vodice

Only 12km northwest of Sibenik, Vodice is a former fishing village turned pleasure port and tourist centre. The historical centre of Vodice is small and picturesque but the main activity takes place on the harbour, which is crammed with restaurants, restaurants and more restaurants plus a few boutiques and souvenir shops.

The  main attraction are the rocky, pebbly and concrete beaches with a shallow drop off that makes them safe for toddlers. They  can get quite crowded in the summer but taxi boats will run you out to the offshore islets of Logorun and Tijat. Vodice is also a quick ferry ride from the much more charming islands of Prvic and Zlarin where you can absorb the ambience of quiet island villages. Vodice is also a good base for taking an excursion to nearby national parks: Krka waterfalls and the Kornati Islands. (See Vodice on a map)

Sightseeing in Vodice

Churches and walls are the main sights to see in Vodice. One three-storey tower of the original 16th-century walls remains intact. Admire the richly ornamented baroque facade of the parish church built in 1749 and the baroque belfry erected in the 18th century. Inside, the painting of the Holy Family on the main altar is notable. West of the town centre is the small church of the Holy Cross built in 1662.

Nightlife in Vodice

Summer nights are throbbing when the Baloo Beach Club gets going. During the day, people drift in for finger food and juice, hanging out on the deck and taking dips in the sea. From 4pm a DJ starts spinning for Happy Hour. Then there's the After Beach party and then more.
