The Sibenik Archipelago


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

The coastal waters of Sibenik contain an archipelago of 249 islands stretching out over 157sq km. In this constellation of islands, only six have a permanent population that totals less than 7000 people. Needless to say, these little islands make marvelous getaways if you're looking for a rustic vacation experience. The six inhabited islands are linked by daily Jadrolinija ferries, a drawbridge and a boat.

There is limited accommodation on each of these islands. Private accommodation can be a great option and the local tourist offices can help you out. Otherwise, contact the Sibenik county tourist office for help.
