Island of Kaprije is a vacation place in the true sense of the word, distant from the modern world and developed tourist complexes, where roads are replaced by narrow streets and the sounds of automobiles are replaced by the sounds of boats and occasional tractor that belong to the locals. It is located 22km southwest of Sibenik
and surrounded by the islands of Kakan and Zmajan and numerous islets: Borovnjak, Kamesnjak, Misjak, Obonjan (once the island of scouts known as the island of youth) and many others. Although the name Kaprije comes from the plant "kapara", there are no kapara bushes left

here anymore. In the 16th and the 17th century, in the time of Turkish attacks and people from mainland inhabiting the island, the Church of St. Peter was built, a patron saint of the island. Until that time, the island belonged to the aristocratic families of Sibenik for two centuries. The only settlement on the island is the village of Kaprije that is surrounded by hills, with the highest hill being Velika Glavica (129m). Along the coast, one can enjoy a nice promenade; in the village you can watch locals play bocce or children as they play mini soccer. The island has approximately

twenty coves and bays. The main bay is also the largest and a port for ferries and boats, with regular service Sibenik-Kaprije-Zirje
. At the end of the bay, there is a shallow pebble beach Polokva with a beach bar. Rocky beach Portic, on the northeast side of the island, is great for those who like a more discrete atmosphere. You can go swimming anywhere along the village though, right in front of houses and apartments. Mala Nozdra cove, on the southeast side of the island, other than swimming also provides you with the opportunity to enjoy the restaurant that is popular among sailors. Divers will find a German military ship wreck from 1944, at the depth of 55m interesting, as well as underwater wall with caves that are full of life. Locals offer accommodation on Kaprije in apartments and rooms of their family or vacation houses. Accommodation is provided; all that is left for you is to enjoy this charming place of fishermen. (Except for the here the offered accommodation, additional apartments on the Island of Kaprije
