Grebastica, Croatia - holiday information

Grebastica, Croatia – visitor information

Immediately along the Adriatic highway lays a picturesque tourist spot situated in the cove of the Oštrovica peninsula, only 15 km away from Sibenik. The remains of ancient heritage are the proof of early Roman settlement, while the name of the locality is mentioned for the first time in the 13th century. The most well preserved historical monument in the settlement is the fortifying wall built in the 15th century as a defence mechanism against the Turks. Today Grebastica has a population of 800 people whose main vocation is practising agriculture, cattle breeding and tourism. In the background villages (Konoba, Brnjača, Svirčići) you can taste homemade olive oil, wine and dry figs. Grebastica is your ideal place if you crave for a peaceful vacation. The main beach in the settlement, Banovci is gravely in form, suitable for children and has plenty of shade where you can rent out deck chairs or relax in one of the café bars. The locality also has a few restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream shops and stores with basic groceries. During the summer, the centre of town is a performing spot for the local cultural society Bedem. Sport lovers can enjoy the long bicycling routes in Grebastica that go along the coastal part all the way to the villages in the background.
