Kaprije island

The small island of Kaprije is located at 8 NM sailing SW from Šibenik, in the central part of the Šibenik archipelago. It has a population of nearly 150 people and a surface of 7.11 km2.

A place far from the crowds, without motorways, car-free, and literally island forgotten by the contemporary world. The spirit of the Mediterranean devours the island.

The island was named after the Mediterranean plant caper whose green buds are used pickled. Caper was probably abundant at the time the island was settled by the refugees from the mainland, during the Turkish invasion in the 16th and 17th centuries. In the 14th and 15th century the island belonged to the noblemen from Šibenik.

Kaprije has only one village, a post office, a first-aid station, a shop, and several cozy bars. A dozen of restaurants are scattered around the island, in nice bays.

Clean sea, peace, quiet, a preserved environment, great food, an attractive island on the doorstep of the Kornati are more reasons to add Kaprije to your sailing in Croatia itinerary.
