n a wide bay, just 13 km north of the renaissance city of Šibenik, there is a perfect town for vacations Vodice. It is big enough to find plenty of entertainment and various things to do, but also small enough to feel the true ambiance of Dalmatian life. If you would like to fill your holiday with activities, the picturesque surroundings of Vodice offer a hundred kilometers of on-road and off-road cycling trails of various difficulties. The locals are proudest of the extremely demanding, attractive "Orlov krug" trail, where the C2 race for the World Cup MTB XCO is held. All the trails are well marked, and before you head out to the trail stop by the tourist office for a bike map. Recreational cyclists find the "Spring Bike Ride", which will be held on March 18, especially attractive, along with the Mountain Bike Weekend, which will be held on the "Orlov krug" trail on April 29 and 30, and includes the "Babes on Bikes" recreational race for women, the bicycle Alka, a concert, and plenty of good fun.

You can also explore the area on foot, strolling alongside the aromatic Mediterranean plants, quaint historical churches, ancient houses (bunje), wells, dry stone walls, fortresses... Fans of nature and hiking will use the opportunity for trekking, which is growing in popularity, while fans of running will circle October 7 in their calendars, when the Vodice Trekking race will be held, or they will enter one of the five annual races of the Island Trail League. A lot of other sports facilities can also be found in Vodice, such as tennis courts, a volleyball court, and a mini-golf green, while you can also best enjoy the view of the island of Prvić from a kayak. Those who love the underwater world are in for a true treat - in Vodice they will find an interesting and rich seabed complete with sunken ships. They can be explored with guided diving tours organized by Vodice's diving schools and internationally certified diving center.
