After visiting the St. Nicholas fortress, we headed to Prvić and Zlarin, two of the “main” islands, but don’t let that fool you–they were tiny (a handful of buildings scattered about and one restaurant on each island). They were virtually deserted except for a few locals.
There wasn’t much to do on the islands except wander around, which we did, and observed locals going about their day with things like drying out figs and carrying mussels in from the sea. After we left the islands, we docked the boat and took a dip in the Adriatic. After swimming for a little while, our boat driver mentioned that–by the way–the (shallow) sea floor where we were swimming was riddled with sea urchins! Luckily, we didn’t get stung, and left with pretty awesome memories of floating around in the warm Adriatic sea with Šibenik peaking out in the background. Inquire about booking a tour here.
