Primošten, located just 28 kilometres south-east of Šibenik, is a rather languid little seaside town. Despite its lack of tourist attractions – or tourists – this half-island is a place to unwind. Fragrant pines back pretty beaches, hilltop restaurants offer fresh seafood and great views, and seafront cafés fill with locals. Younger visitors come for the Aurora and similar nightspots within an easy drive.
The car-free core is set on a small island linked to the mainland by a short causeway. Winding alleys lined with green-shuttered stone houses lead uphill to the Church of St George. Sunset views stretch to the open sea and the seven islets that front the coastline. A promenade round the Old Town features restored stone mansions.
North, the Raduća peninsula contains pine forests, pebbly beaches and the only hotel, the Zora. Raduća and the Old Town are linked by the Mala Raduća cove. Beyond, a hinterland contains Primošten Burnji, home of red Babić wine.
