Primošten Vacation Packages
Primošten is a small, unassuming peninsula. Come to the area for vineyards, olive groves and alluring beaches with clear waters. See historic old churches, swim in Adriatic coves and appreciate the region's renowned wines.
The peninsula was originally an island connected to the mainland by a drawbridge, which helped thwart attack from invading Turks. Cross over from the mainland today on a permanent embankment. You won’t find any sign of the old bridge. When the threat of the Turks receded, the island was turned into a peninsula.
Begin your explorations in the cobbled streets of the old town, with numerous medieval buildings and traditional stone houses. Of particular note is the Church of Our Lady of Mercy, which dates back to 1553. Ascend to the old town’s highest point to see the 15th-century Church of St. Juraj. Explore the adjoining cemetery, where the coastal panorama is at its finest. During summer nights, visit a nightclub to mingle with lively partygoers.
Head just north to the Raduča peninsula for a forest-lined beach or take a water taxi to a surrounding islet for quieter shores. Among the most popular daytrip island destinations is Smokvica Vela, which is renowned for its calm nudist beach.
Embark on a wine trail of the vineyard-studded area, where indigenous Babić red grapes dominate. Learn more about local winemaking and its leading varietals at traditional, family-run wineries. Winemaking has existed here since the 8th century B.C. in picturesque small plots separated by stone walls. The area has numerous restaurants, many offering home-style cooking. Try regional delicacies including smoked Dalmatian ham and grilled shellfish.
Primošten is located about 17 miles (28 kilometers) south of Šibenik. The best time to visit is during summer. Though the beaches may be busy, the atmosphere is livelier, the weather is at its finest and all facilities are open. Travel here by car or take a bus from Split or Šibenik. Navigate the small town on foot.
