The island of Krapanj is the lowest as well as the smallest island on the Adriatic Sea. It is located in the Sibenik aquatorium and only 400 meters away from the land. The island surface does not exceed the height of 1.25 meters above see level. During the 1960s, it was the most densely populated island on the Adriatic with more than 1,500 inhabitants. The island of Krapanj covers the area of less than a half of a square kilometer. It was not easy to survive on such a small area because the cultivable parcels of land were very rare (the area was thickly intertwined by dry walls forming parcels of the size of small gardens). The tradition of sponge harvesting and processing has been nurtured on the island of Krapanj for centuries. The Adriatic Sea sponge is precious for its quality and beauty. If you want to spend a peaceful and quiet holiday, the island of Krapanj is the perfect choice for you. Its gravel beaches are suitable for children and if you rent a boat, you can explore the surrounding coves and beaches.
