    We chose to walk leaving the machine in zablaće, following a path along a beach and crossing a wooden boardwalk into the sea until you reach a small island that leads directly to the fortress. Too bad that to get on there are improvised beams, for me and for the little guys safe, so we couldn't enjoy the view from above. To visit because it deserves.

    Beautiful fort in the water, with the bike to achieve by fighting marina Solaris and zablace, lake to soline velke on the left during pass, lake saline male Sam the right pass. This will take you on a beautiful beach on the kanal svp ante. Follows the hiking trail that runs along this beach and the wooden walkway. Bicycle parking and the last bit on foot. The fort is not accessible because it is undergoing renovations, you can via some boards. If you are near to a beautiful quiet beach with shadow, bicycle than a little further along the Canal to Minerska bay, beautiful beach with good pad on an old military site with hangars. There is nothing for sale

    Cool fort, not very touristic, through to the village of Zablace and the nature reserve (Svetnica sv Ante). Good parking for cars, nice spot for swimming, also shady spots. For the fort you via a wooden bridge over the water to a wooded island where you see the war from bunkers, then through a path of boulders to the fort. Nice view of the fortress on the outside. Unfortunately, difficult to get to it, via two boards (seems a bit shaky) is my husband climbed into it, stunning views from the roof and also inside are ' rooms ' of the fort. Perhaps more in the fort can come via the waterfront, a next time I might try to with water shoes to walk along the edge of the fort and then get into it. Even though I am not been in, well worth a visit!

    Fortress Nikole is a amazing historical location, just a pity that you can not get to the upper part of the fortress when accessing it from the land side, but never the less it is for sure worthwhile seeing. BTW, the fortress might become a UNESCO site, as it is currently on the candidate list!

    Stunning outdoor destination. Its hard to enter fort w/o having a boat, but walk along the channel is relaxing experience.

    Beautiful fort from 16th century. Fort used to defend the city of Sibenik from attacks heading from Adriatic sea. 85%

Where to stay in Sibenik

Unlike most Croatian towns, Sibenik offers few private accommodations, with most of its rooms in large resorts well outside the city. Sibenik's few hostels provide simple but comfortable lodgings near major attractions, but most travelers end up basing themselves somewhere along the coastline and exploring the city on day trips. Get the most out of your visit by staying in one of the nearby villages, which provide quick access to the city and some of the finest beaches on the Adriatic's eastern shore.
