There are numerous “famous” beaches on our coast. Bačvice in Split, Kolovare beach of Zadar, Banje in Dubrovnik, Bonj of Hvar… to mention just a few. But Jadrija of Šibenik seems to have a special aura even to those not native to Šibenik. It is probably because it is the last “classic” beach still standing.

Winter is always the best time to explore. The weather, when sunny, is ideal for hikes and walks.

And there is always something cool and new to see.
Recently I found out about a fortress in Sonković village near Skradin. It is only a short drive away and just about 10 minutes off the highway. The fortress looked interesting in Google Earth but checking it for real is what it is all about.
