About Vodice





About Kornati National Park

Vodice

Vodice in Croatia is a beautiful coastal town on the Sibenik Riviera and is also one of the most famous destinations for a beach holiday in Dalmatia.

Travel

Vodice, Croatia is conveniently located near several airports that serve both domestic and international flights. The nearest airport is Zadar Airport , which is approximately 60 kilometers away and takes around 45 minutes to reach by car. Another nearby option is Split Airport , located about 75 kilometers away and taking around an hour and 10 minutes to reach by car. Both airports offer a range of transportation options, including taxis, car rentals, and shuttle services, making it easy for travelers to reach Vodice from the airport.

There will be a few extra shuttles at fixed times from/to airports to/from the event venue, on Saturday and Sunday before and Saturday after the event. This service would be available at peak hours of most arrivals/departures as reported from the airports websites. If travelers are too far from those slots there is always a bus service (via Zadar/Split cities centres) or uber/taxi.

Info and schedule of extra shuttles.

The buses will wait outside the airport in the parking and the driver will hold a sign summer school. The departure times are exact and there will be no waiting. See bellow for the schedule.
