Brodarica is a small village located 5 km south of Šibenik. It stretches for nearly 5 km along the sea facing nine islands which make up a lagoon, as well as the Gulf of Morin which houses fish hatcheries. The local economy is mainly based on tourism. The northern part of the bay in Brodarica is rich in medicinal mud deposits, making it suitable for development of health and wellness tourism. Brodarica is a peaceful, pleasant village comprised of villas and private houses suitable for family holidays and swimming at the picturesque rocky and sandy beaches. Many family homes and apartments in Broadarica offer quality accommodation.

New tourists and visitors are continually attracted to Brodarica by its large offer which includes restaurants, cafés, night clubs, sports playing fields (tennis, mini golf, table tennis), aqua sports, scuba diving and others.

During the summer months, you can seek entertainment in several cafes and beach bars, or visit two large night clubs “Aurora” and “Hacienda” which are located in nearby Vodice.

The island Krpanj is located 300m from Brodarica and it is the smallest, shortest and most inhabited island in the Mediterranean. Its highest point is at an altitude of 1.25 m and has a tradition of creation of sea sponges which are valued for their beauty and quality.
