Sailing Holidays in Vodice

Vodice is a famous tourist destination at the Adriatic coast of Croatia, known for its vibrancy, diversity, tourist attractions and friendly people. The city is located along the coast in a wide bay, 11 km northwest of Sibenik, the center of the county. 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. 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.
