Kaprije is a picturesque island of the Šibenik archipelago, where you can discover true rest and relaxation with sea and sun.
ABOUT THE LOCATION
The Island of Kaprije is located in the central part of the Šibenik archipelago. The only settlement on the island is also called Kaprije. The highest point on the island is the Velika Glavica (Big Head) Peak (129 meters above sea level) which is above Kaprije. There are about bays on Kaprije of which the most popular are: Luka Kaprije, Mala Nozdra, Velika Nozdra, Gračice and Remetić. (Source: Wikipedia)
A pebble beach, with a few concrete piers, stretches along the entire bay where Kaprije is situated and provides a beautiful setting for swimming. For those seeking solitude, Little Port (Portić) Beach is a great choice - Portić is situated on the north side of the island, 700 meters from the ferry dock. There is also a beautiful walk along the full length of the seashore which is great for walking and jogging. As there are lamps along the walk, walking and jogging can also be enjoyed in the evening hours. Kaprije offers excellent conditions for fishing. And there is the German military ship, Francesca da Rimini, sunk on 22 March 1944 along the northern tip of the island and currently lies at a depth of 55 meters providing an attractive site for scuba diving. Among the sights on Kaprije, we note St. Peter’s Church which was built at the turn of the 17th century, and extended in 1801 (Source: Wikipedia)
For fun, we suggest you visit one or more of the several capricious coffee bars and taverns (Croatian: konoba) on the island.
If you decide to visit the mainland, the ferry will take you to the old Croatian town of Šibenik where you can visit the famous St. James‘ Cathedral. Near Šibenik you have Krka National Park and Lake Vrana (Vransko jezero) Nature Park, and boat excursions to Kornati National Park and Telašćica Nature Park depart from around Šibenik. There are plenty of entertainment events taking place in and around Šibenik this summer (International Children's Festival, Terraneo Music Festival, CMC Music Festival, Mother's Customs (Materine užance), Days of the nights of Vrana,...)
There is one grocery store on Kaprije. The store is located in the center of the village, beside the ferry dock. There are many grocery stores in Šibenik as well as the Dalmare shopping center.
HOW TO GET THERE
Kaprije is connected to Šibenik by ferry that runs twice daily in both directions during the summer season.
