Beach Banj attractions

Banj is the best place for enjoying sun and sea in the center of Sibenik.
It is mostly pebble beach, featuring beach bar, free showers, free swimsuit changing places and rental of sun loungers.

The beach is wheelchair accessible. It is also good for people and kids who do not know how to swim because of shallow water.

Another attraction of Banj is beautiful panoramic view of Sibenik, which includes view of the Cathedral and fortresses.

After you finish your swimming session, it's time to take a brake and drink your favourite drink. For that purpose, there is cafe bar & restaurant Petrus located just near the beach.
Price for coffee in Petrus is 13 kn (around 1.8 euro).
Petrus is also a night club organizing beach parties during summer evenings.

Entrance to the beach is free.

As you can see on the map, Banj is located a few hundred meters away from the center of Šibenik.

You can get on the beach by car or by walking. If you decide to go by car, locate the beach with GPS.
There is free parking just near the beach, but during summer months these parking spaces become quickly occupied. Alternatively, there is paid parking space nearby, with a price of 20 kunas (around 3 euros) for the whole day.
If you decide to get there walking from the center of the city, just follow the coastline. It takes around 20 minutes of walking from the center of the city to the beach.
