Whenever I pass between Split and Šibenik, I admire the small beautiful peninsula - Primošten.
In recent years, Primosten has acquired an image of top tourist destination, and with good reason - the peninsula hardly leaves anyone unimpressed.

The town is widely known for its Babić red wine, top-quality olive oil, beautiful sandy beaches, and the Mediterranean atmosphere that you feel while walking its streets.

I have already written guide about Primosten.On June 26, 2020, I decided to visit the town to check how does it look like after pandemic, and if there are any visitors.

As soon as I parked my car in Primosten, I noticed that the guests had returned to the city. Naturally, these are Slovak, Czech and Slovenian tourists who traditionally spend their vacation in Primosten. I would say that the tourist occupancy rate is around 50 percent of last year's occupancy, which is a great result considering the recent situation with the pandemic.
Visitors feel safe in Primosten, and not a single case of infection has been reported in the town recently.

The town is still expecting French, US, and UK visitors since airlines with these countries are still being established.

Croatia is open to tourism, and tourists from EU countries are welcome.

As you can see from the photos below, Primosten beaches are lively and pretty as every season. Swimmers keep social distance, as required by the Croatian Institute of Public Health. There should be at least two meters distance between families who arrive at the beach.
Social distance should be maintained in all other places like bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.

My impression is that the city is beautiful and safe, worth visiting this year. Reduced number of tourists makes it more intimate and artistic.

We recommend Hotel Zora as an excellent accommodation option in Primosten. If you prefer to stay in a private apartment, there are many good deals on booking.com, since accommodation prices are reduced due to lower number of visitors.
