Beautiful Sibenik is a historic city on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, full of Renaissance splendour and a wonderful location for a Croatia villa holiday. As the oldest city on the coastline, Sibenik is the perfect place for a romantic villa holiday, all terracotta tiles, white stone walls and brilliantly blue seas. Sibenik is also perfectly primed for a family villa holiday, thanks to its coastal location, Blue Flag beaches and being just 15km away from the Krka National Park. The city itself offers 950 years of history, winding cobbled lanes and a Unesco World Heritage church, while the outskirts see peaceful pebbled coves and lush greenery, with the city also the gateway to the nearby Kornati islands – 140 uninhabited islands, islets and colourful reefs. A Sibenik villa holiday is all about enjoying the spectacular scenery, soaking up history, island hopping and enjoying views from your Sibenik villa of the brilliant blue Adriatic. 

Things to do in Sibenik

Sibenik offers something for everyone, and from your villa in Sibenik you can stroll into the historical city, visit the nearby pristine pebble beaches and journey to the Kornati islands. The fortified city allows you to wander medieval city walls and streets, imbibing architecture like the world-famous Cathedral of St Jacob (a Unesco World Heritage Site) and St Nicholas Fortress. To explore further afield, it’s best to hire a car on your Sibenik villa holiday, allowing you to easily reach the myriad of beaches that pepper the northern Dalmatian coastline. The area is renowned for these beautiful beaches, the most popular being the Solaris complex – a long pebbly sand stretch with umbrellas, sunbeds and plenty of facilities. Groups enjoying a family villa holiday in Sibenik will also love Beach Banj, just a 10-minute walk from our villas in Sibenik and offering a spectacular view back over the citadel (along with a bar, restaurants and playground). To truly appreciate the extreme beauty of the Adriatic coast, jump on a boat and head to the Kornati Islands, before finishing your day in a local Sibenik restaurant – many set in charming courtyards and squares and serving up fresh octopus, Croatian fare and Mediterranean classics.

History and culture in Sibenik

As the oldest city in the Adriatic and with 950 years of history, Sibenik is a dream for history and culture lovers. Immerse yourself in the city’s tumultuous and fascinating history on your Sibenik villa holiday by heading into the town, where you’ll see sights like the Unesco-protected Cathedral of St James – a 15th-century stone church decorated with 71 sculpted faces. While in town, visit the Sibenik City Museum set in the 14th-century Prince’s Palace, the St Michael’s fortress – now boasting an open-air theatre with spectacular sea views – and the St Nicholas Fortress, built by the Venetians to scare off the Turks. For a poignant experience during your stay in one of our Sibenik villas, visit the Victory Museum which tells the story of the liberation of Dalmatia from fascists in 1944.  

Family holidays in Sibenik

For a fantastic day out in Sibenik, the Aquapark Dalmatia is a must, one of the best waterparks on the Dalmatian coastline that just happens to be close to our Sibenik villas. Kids will love the colourful slides, sprays, lazy river, fortress and pools, while adults will love the comfortable beach chairs, umbrellas, pirate ship bar and lifeguards on duty. For more aquatic fun without actually getting wet, the city has the Sibenik Aquarium Terrarium, set to keep kids occupied for a few hours with colourful tropical fish, small sharks, a friendly octopus, crabs, lobsters and morays. A family villa holiday in Sibenik wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach, the best for families being the Solaris Beach Resort, a Blue Flag beach with golden pebbly sands and shallow emerald waters.

Adventurous activities in Sibenik

Outdoorsy types will love our villas in Sibenik, which are located near the wilds of the Kornati Islands and the Krka National Park. While the uninhabited Kornati Islands offer fantastic opportunities for snorkelling, swimming and exploring, the best day trip is to the Krka National Park, where travellers can hike, explore waterfalls, watermills and archaeological ruins and even spot wildlife like golden eagles, boars and wolves. With stunning waterfalls, lagoons to swim in, verdant scenery and a feeling of peace and isolation, the Krka National Park is also a highlight on a romantic villa holiday in Sibenik. Numerous operators loaning watersports equipment also operate in the area and on Sibenik’s beaches, so travellers can stand-up paddleboard, kitesurf and windsurf. 

Romance in Sibenik

From swimming in the waterfalls and lagoons of the Krka National Park and snorkelling on the Kornati reefs, to wandering the gleaming cobbles of the old town and dining in charming squares, a Sibenik villa holiday is certainly a romantic one. Our villas for couples are all perfectly positioned to make the most of this gorgeous corner of the Adriatic, and couples can spend the day at the beach sunbathing on golden sands or wine tasting in nearby Dalmatia wineries (try Baraka and Rak). Finish your day in the courtyards of the city or on Sibenik harbour for a romantic candle-lit dinner, dining on Octopus, skradinski rižot (risotto) fresh breads and olive oils. A villa with a private pool is also a great idea for couples, giving you more privacy.
