Kaprije Island


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

In the central part of the Sibenik island archipelago, Kaprije Island got it's name from the capers that blossom on the island. Only 7 sq km, this tiny, flat island is mainly covered by brush interspersed with olive groves and vineyards. The village of Kaprije lies along a charming bay on the southernmost part of the island. The indented coastline offer good swimming opportunities. The few inhabitants are mostly descendants of refugees from areas invaded by the Turks in the 16th century. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the island belonged to well-to-do families from Sibenik. The parish church dates from the end of the 16th century.
