Sea Kayaking Skradin - Prvic Luka

Our first day of sea kayaking takes us from Skradin through the channel to the open sea towards Sibenik and its archipelago. The coastal waters of Sibenik contain an archipelago of numerous islands stretching out over 157sq km. In this group of islands, only six have a permanent population that totals less than 7000 people. Needless to say, these little islands make marvellous getaways if you’re looking for rustic vacation experience. The first destination we need to reach is the island Prvic. The first settlers were probably recluses. Later, in the 15th century, the place became a noble seaside resort and it was inhabited by the priests of the Benedictine and the Franciscan order, who built a monastery and later two churches. Over time the population grew; a dense population peak was reached in the early 20th century, when there were about 1300 people. During the 20th century, the population has steadily declined and at the beginning of this century, came down to about two hundred. Accommodation: Maestral Hotel 3***; Meals: B and D (lunch on your own); Sea kayaking: 5 h; Distance: 25 km.
