Croatia villa holidays: Krapanj

The beautiful island of Krapanj is located a mere 300m from the Šibenik archipelago and is home to just 240 inhabitants, as well as a selection of stunning coastal cottages. It is both the smallest island in the Adriatic, as well as the lowest, being just 1.5 metres above sea level. At just 0.36 square kilometres, Krapanj is also one of the most densely populated islands in the Adriatic. As you will soon discover during a stay in one of our hand-picked holiday lettings in Croatia, the island’s economy is dominated by agriculture, fishing and the rare sponge diving industry.

The harvest for sea sponges takes place between May and October, which is perfect timing for a summertime stay in one of NOVASOL’s villas Croatia. Although Krapanj is considered one of the best places in the world for sponge diving, the ancient craft is becoming less common – especially as the economy is increasingly focused upon tourism.
