Krapanj is a small island with a long history and rich culture, tradition, and customs. In the old days, there were a lot of customs in Krapanj and some of them remained today. The most famous was: as the island was always left for fishing or work in the field by boat and to the mainland, the women were those who rowed, and the men and the donkey were sitting forward. Today, most women on the island still row.

The tradition of sponge harvesting and processing nurtures the island of Krapanj for 300 years. The Adriatic Sea sponge is precious for its quality and beauty.

In front of the Spongiola hotel, there is a jetty with 25 berths with water and electricity supply. If you would like to take the first scuba diving lessons or if you already have the experience, the hotel offers diving services.

Ideal nature and silence will surely help you charge your batteries.
