Primosten is known for its beautiful, long pebbly beaches, the most famous being Velika Raduca Beach, which is popular with locals and tourists alike. With only a small entrance to the sea, Raduca Beach is protected and popular with those who enjoy tennis, volleyball, shoreline bars and restaurants and just generally lounging in the glorious sunshine on one of the beach’s colourful deckchairs.
During the summer, Primosten really comes to life with its local festivals and entertainment, including the Primosten Fiesta, fishing evenings and folklore and Dalmatian folk music displays.
Primosten is surrounded by a beautiful promenade that runs the length of its Old Town walls.
