Visiting Island Prvic
If you are looking to spend your holiday on an Island enjoying great parties, you should probably take a look at Island Hvar or Island Brac as Prvic Island has very little to offer in that direction, but if you are looking for a peaceful place to spend your holiday you will enjoy Island Prvic.
The Island does not have many sights to offer, but there are a few historical churches and a memorial center for Faust Vrančić, a Bishop and Inventor whose family used to own the Island.
Beaches can be found in many places on the island, most are pebble beaches.
Shopping options are available in both Sepurine and Prvice Luka, both settlements also have several coffee bars and restaurants, so cooking at the apartment is not necessary 🙂
