Destination guide

There's no place-ia quite like Croatia...

If there's a resort anywhere that's more quintessentially Croatian than Vodice, no one's found it yet. Yachts bobbing gently in the harbor? Check. Elegant, whitewashed churches? Check. Great restaurants? Laid-back nightlife scene? Gorgeous beaches? Check, check, check. Vodice vacation rentals are the real deal, and once you've tried one for yourself, you'll see why everyone's been going on about Croatia for the past 15 years. Take a cruise on those clear, calm waters, then celebrate your adventures with some fresh fish and a cold glass of wine. It doesn't get much better than this.

Things to do

Slink off for some sightseeing in Sibenik

To really get a handle on your aquatic surroundings, check out the Aquarium and Museum of Maritime Tradition, with its displays of fish, diving equipment, and ancient amphorae. Elsewhere, the area is full of beautiful churches, but one of the most iconic is the ultra-modern Church of Our Lady of Carmel up on Okit hill. A little further afield, you could head along the coast to the beautiful city of Sibenik, with its spectacular cathedral and Venetian fortresses. If you've brought little ones with you, they might be tempted by the rides, slides, and pools at Solaris Aquapark.

Activities

Anchors aweigh for adventure on the high seas

With gentle winds, minimal tides, and hundreds of interesting islands to explore, plenty of future sea dogs get their first taste of sailing on the Adriatic Coast, and Vodice vacation rentals make the perfect base. You could start with a little cruise across the water to the tiny island of Prvic. And, if you prefer not to go out of your depth, Vodice has great, family-friendly beaches where you can enjoy the sea on your own terms. The Dalmatian Coast is full of historic sites and cities, and excursions will be almost as high up on the menu as the seafood.

Weather

You'll be feeling ecstatic about the Adriatic

The climate on this bit of coast has more in common with the Mediterranean than the rest of Croatia. Vodice vacation rentals will give you the sorts of long, hot, dry summers that the very best vacations are made of. Winters are usually mild, but can be rainy. As with many seaside locales, it's the winds that can really make a difference for the weather in Vodice. One of the most famous is the gusty Bora, which blows cold and fierce, and keeps all but the most experienced sailors off the water.

Natural features

There are at least 101 reasons to love Dalmatia

Vodice is set on the Adriatic Sea, in southern Croatia. This area is known as the Dalmatian Coast (after the region of Dalmatia, rather than everyone's favorite spotted dog), and it's one of the most popular areas in the country. This is partly due to its extraordinarily photogenic cities, like Dubrovnik, but also because of its appealing geography. Its long, sheltered coastline is full of sandy beaches, and its relatively calm waters are easy to navigate and full of little islands just waiting to be explored. The nearest one to Vodice is Prvic, with just 2 villages and 11 km of coastline.
