Vodice is a vibrant tourist destination that sits next to the sea in a wide bay. The beaches are pristine and the hidden coves are great for those who are seeking some peace and quiet.

The centre of Vodice is dominated by a large marina with more than 400 berths. The surrounding archipelago is a sailing paradise.

However, Vodice has much more to offer than the sun and the sea. Vacationers who like to stay active can go hiking and cycling, while scuba diver enthusiasts will relish exploring the seabed. Don’t miss the chance to investigate the shipwrecks and experience the beauty of underwater gardens while diving.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline-packed activity holiday with a beautiful view of the Kornati archipelago, then Vodice is the perfect place for you!

Today, it is the resting place of Faust Vrančić, the inventor of the parachute, suspension bridge and olive mill. The serene and relaxed lifestyle of Prvić Island is a must see when in Vodice.
