Sibenik is Croatia’s third-largest port city. Its location is fantastic and it has such natural values that everyone should see once in his/her life. Sibenik is a special city because, like most cities at the Adriatic Sea in the Middle Ages, it wasn’t built on the coast, but at a river. Its special feature is that the river with freshwater flows into the salty seawater at Sibenik, as it doesn’t lie directly at the beach, but at the river Krka.
Location of Sibenik
Dalmatia can be found in travel books as the most beautiful region of Croatia. This is where Sibenik is, not too far from Trogir, next to the mountainous region.
History of Sibenik
The establishment of the city is explained by several legends, but its existence is only sure from the 9th century. Sibenik has often been invaded, but this fact has not deteriorated its economic value. The city’s development has been continuous ever since.
Beaches in Sibenik
Due to the encounter of the cold river with freshwater and salty warm sea, the beach water at Sibenik is a little calmer than it would be usual in the Adriatic region, but it is also less salty and it does not irritate swimmers’ eyes. You can enjoy the beaches in the sea, yet in the river.
Banj is the most popular beach in the city. This beach section has small pebbles and its water is getting gradually deeper, which makes it ideal for families with small kids too. Water sports options and a beach volleyball court are all available. You have a wonderful view of the old town from the beach.
Solaris Beach Resort
The most fashionable beach in the region, which offers a lot more than that, it is a real holiday complex. You can enjoy a real beach atmosphere 4 km long on the sandy beach. Everything can be found here: hotels, campsites, wellness centres, clubs, many sports facilities, slides, and even a Dalmatian village museum. If you want to spend your beach time in a very meaningful way, you can’t miss this place.
If you have visited city beaches already and you are adventurous, go to the open sea to explore the area. Hardly known and almost untouched beaches can be found at Zaboric and a real Adriatic sand beach is expecting you at the island of Krapanj. If you rent a boat or a yacht, these places are easy to reach. Our yacht charter Sibenik list.
