A Guide To Beaches in Sibenik

Frankly speaking there are not many beaches in Sibenik town area. Only few of them are within walking distance from the city center.

The situation has changed in past years, particularly when in 2012 some old beaches have been renovated and in 2013 after the local authorities decided to build the promenade through the St. Anthony Channel.

That has contributed to bring closer several coves and new beaches in the Channel area to the city.
