About Šibenik Riviera

Šibenik is thought to be the oldest Slavic town on the Croatian coastline, thought to have been established around the 11th century. It switched between Croatia and Venetian rule for centuries and now is best known for being the gateway to the Kornati archipelago.

Best Time to Visit

Croatia enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and mild, wet winters, so the best time to visit Šibenik and the surrounding riviera is between June and August. You’ll make the most of the high summer temperatures and low chances of rain here, and won’t have to worry about anywhere being too overcrowded with other travellers on their summer holidays.

Best Things To Do In

There is plenty of medieval architecture in Šibenik, so one of the best things to do is simply tour the buildings and monuments around the streets and learn more about its history. Once you’ve explored the city, make the most of your proximity to two of the Dalmatian Coast’s best national parks and visit some of the islands in the Kornati archipelago or the impressive waterfalls of Krka.

Best Places To Go In

Šibenik is very well known for being a key filming location for later series’ of the popular fantasy television program Game of Thrones, so if you’re a fan then you can spend a good day or so touring all the places that were featured in the show. A key attraction is the Cathedral of St. James, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage list for being such a brilliant example of 15th and 16th-century architecture.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
