June the 24th, 2019 – Šibenik is a truly beautiful, historic Dalmatian town which is becoming increasingly popular among foreign tourists from all over the world. Without the incredible amount of publicity other Croatian cities like Split and Dubrovnik, Šibenik has managed to find its own way and has done so extremely successfully.
Caring for its local population much more than the likes of Dubrovnik has ever done, not to mention its numerous UNESCO protected sites, this stunning Dalmatian city has a range of achievements under its belt when it comes to sustainable tourism and refusing to alienate the locals.
Often looked upon as a shining example when it comes to the withdrawal and use of European Union funds, especially when the rest of Croatia continues to lag behind (much like in almost everything else), Šibenik rarely has a negative headline printed about it, which is more than a rarity in Croatia.
This beautiful city is full of history from the Greeks to the Illyrians and the Romans, and has a very rich and diverse past to boast of. Culture can be found without even trying and the surrounding area, as well as the wider Šibenik-Knin County, is as full of unspoiled nature as it is fascinating history.
It seems that one popular travel portal, Kiwi, has recognised Šibenik’s natural beauty, and the local Banj beach has been listed among the nine best beaches for 2019, according to their readers. From Bermuda to Croatia, the portal’s readers have their public say on beautiful beaches.
Listed after beautiful Marathi Bay in Crete, Greece, Kiwi writes: ”While it has always been a desired tourist destination, Croatia is currently experiencing a massive boom. It is perhaps because the Balkan country has got into the spotlight with its old city of Dubrovnik that has been featured in the famous series Game of Thrones. But with hundreds of kilometres of a picturesque shore, colossal mountains, unique natural parks, and rich history, Croatia has a myriad of the nicest places to visit.
Between Zadar and Split in the southern part of the country lies the city of Šibenik. Its magnificent medieval heart that welcomes thousands of tourists every year can be best seen from the nearby beach called Banj. Built in 2012, the beach has quickly gained the title of the most popular spot in the entire city and offers the best view over Šibenik’s St. Michael’s Fortress and St. Anthony Channel.
Apart from the unforgettable panorama, Banj provides its visitors with all the basic amenities a cool beach needs as well as a boasting party nightlife during the whole season.”
