Hit the beach
Beach life is an essential facet of summertime in Vodice and the town has one to suit any taste. Plava plaža (Blue beach), which stretches westward from the small outcrop of land immediately west of the town centre (Punta) all the way to Tribunj, is great for families with younger children. Holding a Blue Flag status for the cleanliness of its waters, this pebble beach extends into the sea at an extremely low gradient, making it perfect for even the youngest paddlers. The cafes and bars set back from the beach provide ample places to lunch or escape the sun. Heading in a southeasterly direction from the town centre is a collection of beaches most commonly known as Hangar beach. If you or your children are between the ages of 14 and 35, this is probably where you'll want to hang out. Chock full of people in that age range, it’s sometimes much more of a beach for people-watching and being seen than others in the area. The bars that fringe the beach also have a youthful vibe. If you're looking for somewhere a little quieter, follow Hangar beach until you reach Srima, with its two kilometres of spacious beach. Serviced by a resort, it offers plenty of room and peace, although the absence of shading pines means you have to be well prepared with sunblock and with a plan of escape if you get too hot.
