Beach Banj is one of two city beaches in Sibenik (the second one is Beach Jadrija). If you decide to take your holidays somewhere in the centre of Sibenik, then you will probably spend a lot of your time on this beach.

Beach Banj attractions

Banj is the best place for enjoying the sun and sea in the centre of Sibenik.
It is mostly pebble beach, featuring a 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 break and drink your favourite drink. For that purpose, there is cafe bar & restaurant Petrus located just near the beach.
The price for coffee in Petrus is 13 kn (around 1.8 euro).
Petrus is also a night club organizing beach parties during summer evenings.

The entrance to the beach is free.

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

You can get to the beach by car or on foot. If you decide to go by car, you can easily locate the beach with GPS.
There is free parking just near the beach, but during the 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 centre of the city, just follow the coastline. It takes around 20 minutes of walking from the centre of the city to the beach.
