Excursions from Šibenik
Šibenik has good ferry connections to several small islands that can be explored on a day trip or overnight. Zlarin is only 30 minutes by boat from Šibenik and is known for the coral that used to be abundant before it was torn from the sea and sold for jewellery. No cars are allowed on the island, so it makes a tranquil retreat from Šibenik, boasting a sandy beach, pine woods and a spacious port.
Only 15 minutes further on from Zlarin, Prvić contains two villages, Prvić Luka and Šepurine, which retain the flavour of simple fishing settlements.
In July and August Jadrolinija has five ferries per day to Zlarin, Prvić Luka and Šepurine, decreasing to at least two daily in winter.
