Tourist information

Of all the islands in the Sibenik island chain, the island of Krapanj is the tiniest and the least inhabited. Krapanj is situated just 300 meters from the landmass and Brodarica settlement, the island covers the area of only 0.45 square kilometers. Its coasts are extremely shallow as the island itself too. The beaches on the Krapanj island are mostly pebbled and suitable for kids' play, so we would definitely suggest this island for family groups with small kids and those who prefer sports activities on their summer vacation.

Historically residents of this island were fishers and sea sponge harvesters as Krapanj has an extensive history of sea diving in addition to an industry of sea sponge refinement. As a result of its sea sponge past, in Dalmatia, the islanders are named 'Spuzvari' (Spuzva is Croatian terms for Sponge). Even though the little sponge business can still be discovered on the island, it gradually perished as sea diving was revealed to be a quite life-threatening job, so as an alternative, inhabitants shifted in the direction of snorkeling and spear fishing. These days, there is a little sponge museum in the island's Abbey that features some amazing items from that period of time period. Lots of similar Croatian Islands have built bridges to make it possible for tourist access via car. Krapanj has made the choice not to link to the landmass as this would wipe out the island's ancestry.

In the 15th century, Krapanj was a sanctuary for fugitives from the Turkish occupation. You can find a Franciscan abbey and small church that originates from that time frame. The abbey is truly worth exploring for the Renaissance cloister and the artwork by Francesco da Santacroce.
