Things to do in Sparadici

Sparadici is a perfect place to spend summer holidays for those who primarily want to relax and spend their time on the beach. The sea is perfectly clean and ideal for swimming. The beaches are mostly concrete and there are no crowds. You can expect a small number of people around yourself while on the beach.

Except for swimming and sunbathing, Sparadici is a great place for windsurfing due to the moderate west wind that blows during the summer months.

If the owner of your apartment has a boat (which is pretty much common in Sparadici), you can ask for a boat ride through the nearby bay. The sights are amazing. You can see beautiful Jelinjak Forest and islands Tmara and Krbelica, which are located a few miles ahead.

Another thing you can do in Sparadici is fishing. The early morning is a perfect time for that because there are no people on the coast. Even if you don't catch any fish, you will enjoy the beautiful sunrise.

Each house in Sparadici features its small concrete beach. Although these beaches are public, there are virtually no people there expect locals and their guests. It means you will have lots of privacy and silence there. The entrances to the sea are accessible at all beaches.
There is only one pebble beach in Sparadici which is located in the centre of the place.

There is no active nightlife in Sparadici. The place is completely silent after 10 pm, which means you can sleep really well, without unnecessary party music. However, if you want to have a party, you can go to Primosten, and visit famous nightclub Aurora, which is located 15 kilometres away from Sparadici. You can also go to Grebastica which is located 5 kilometres away and listen to some Dalmatian "Klapa" music there.

Sparadici features two bars and one small restaurant. Both bars are located in a perfect location near the sea, which means you can enjoy your perfect drink while watching the sunset. Prices are reasonable. Coffee price is 1 -2 euros, depending on a coffee type.

Sparadici is located just below Croatian state road D8. The easiest way to approach it is by car. You just need to turn when you see the sign "Sparadici" on the road.
The roads in Sparadici are a little bit narrow, which means you will have to drive a few hundred meters through the place with extra attention.
Make sure that your apartment owner will provide you with the parking place before arrival.

The most common accommodation type in Sparadici is private apartments. The price depends on the distance from the sea and season. Most of them are listed on booking.com

One of the best apartment in Sparadici is apartment Marko, a two-bedroom apartment with a beautiful terrace. It is suitable for up to 5 persons. The price during July and August is 80 euros/day, while the price during May, June, September and October is 60 euros/day.
