Summer in Croatia: Lazy beach day in Šibenik


Sorry I've been a bit silent during the last couple of days, but I have a really good excuse - we're in Šibenik on a short vacation and no matter how hard I tried to post and read your blogs regularly, I simply couldn't do it but I'll make it up to you, I promise.

If you've read my latest post then you're familiar with my ongoing love-hate relationship with Šibenik, my hometown. But no matter what, there are so many places in and around the city I love so much and this one I'm showing you today is one of them. Let's hit the beach!


The fortress you can see in the distance, Saint Nicholas, is my all time favourite one in Šibenik. It's situated in the sea and you can visit it by boat (if you have one) or the old school way - by foot. I've been there numerous times while I still lived here but during this vacation I didn't manage to catch enough of time to visit it again and shoot it for the blog which is something that makes me a bit sad beacause it's perfect, inside out and I definitely want to shoot it before someone tries to 'modernize' it and ruins it like they did with one of our other fortresses.


Queen Frida was with us all the time and it's safe to say that she enjoyed this little vacation the most. 


This little raw paradise is located in Zablaće, a very short drive away from the city (Šibenik has only one town beach and I don't like it so you'll never see me mention it) and I love it because it's never crowded, there's always loads of natural shade, it's quiet, dogs are welcome (I mean, there's no particular sign that actually says that but then again this isn't your proper and posh beach), the view is perfect and the sea is crystal clear.


And if I had to choose, this day was my absolute favourite from our little Šibenik adventure. 


Hope you've had a great week (what have you been up to?) and wishing you an even better weekend!

  1. what have I been up to? ni sama ne znam, tjedan mi je bio lud:)

    Fotografije su predivne...ne znam koju bi izvodila....ta tvrđava u daljini stvarno izgleda fenomenalno...a jako mi se sviđa ta slika s tobom okrenuta prema moru.

    Savršene fotografije i dobre vibracije....more, idila, ljeto, naše lijepe plaže, borovi, kamenje...sve si to savršeno uhvatila. Ne čudi me što je Frida uživala, mislim s obzirom na novo otkrivenu ljubav prema moru:)

    Meni su najdraže ovakve osamljene plaže, a mislim da se sjećam ove od prijašnjih godina ( s bloga)....meni su u Splitu plaže stvarno dobre, tako da ne mogu reći da mi gradske nisu drage.... najčešće idem na Žnjan jer mi je tu najbliže:)...ali naravno one osamljene su nešto posebno.

    1. Puno ti hvala, drago mi je da ti se sviđaju fotke! :)
      I meni su ovakve plaže apsolutni favoriti, imam svoj mir i savršenu prirodu, što mi više treba? Slažem se s tobom da Split ima dobre plaže, ja se na ovu šibensku nikad nisam naviknula (ima tek par godina da postoji) jer mi po svim parametrima ne paše, a i tokom godina provedenih ovdje sam se naviknula da svaki put kad hoću na plažu moram sjesti u auto ili brod pa sam skupila veći broj dragih mjesta kojima se uvijek iznova vraćam tako da me ova gradska onda naprosto nije ni mogla zainteresirati.

    2. shvaćam, a svakako su te plaže van grada uvijek mirnije, pa i bolje...i ja sam tip kojem više paše mir i tišina.

  2. These photographs are magnificent! Frida looks like she's having such a wonderful time. I imagine I would spend hours just reading alongside the water. It looks like the most perfect of locations to get lost in a book!

  4. Kako volim takva morksa mestašca koja deluju netaknuto (u prevodu beži što dalje od gradskih plaža :D) Tvoje slike mene toliko opuštaju, toliko uživam u njima i u ovom za mene potpuno nepoznatom kraju. More, obala, priroda, pa ta tvrđava... kakav pogled. Ma raj! Nadam se da će tvrđava ostati kakva jeste, ovde su tako skoro modernizovali jednu i sad je skroz izgubila lepotu i posebnost... Frida je carica, što se kaže, zna za šta živi :)
    Uživaj u vikendu! <3

  11. Vidi ti pločica u Maria :Phahahaha... Da, meni su ovakve plaže nešto najdraže na svijetu. Nažalost, od kada su sa nama klinci, takve plaže više nisu opcija ali se nikako ne mogu naviknuti na gužve i svakakve ljude oko sebe i stoga, vjeruj mi, puno mi puta bude draže ostati kući i kupati se u velikom bazenu na napuhavanje nego ići na more...
    Fotografije su divne, mogu osjetiti onaj miris bora i mora... to si ti i tvoje fotke... uvijek su toliko "žive"... :)

  12. Let's hit the beach! Ajmo, može, i odmah i sad i istog trena jer Zg je opet hladan i siv i ne, opet nemam osjećaj da je ljeto pred vratima. :(
    Frida mi je zakon na ovim posljednjim fotkama, carica zna uživati i neka...baš mi je drago da se izguštala jer ništa manje ne zaslužuje. :))
    Plaža je, a malo je reći, divna, baš po mom guštu jer i sama bježim od onih gdje ljudi doslovno leže jedni na drugima. Još kad se sjetim koliko je uz takve voda prljava, pa da je jednom i uložak doplutao pored mene...ma jao, strava i užas iako nisam nešto posebno gadljiva. A čak i da nema ovih spomenutih stvari, osamljene plaže su toliko ljepše, priroda netaknutija, a da ne pričam o zvukovima...kada čuješ samo šum mora i svoje misli. Ah. :))
    E da mogu odmah bi se ubacila u te tvoje fotografije...ma kakav posao, kakvo sve. :D
