Today, we walked from the Kneze apartment to the beach five minutes along the shore. We passed many picturesque boats moored at little stone docks, and little restaurants overlooking the shoreline. At the end of the little village, lies a nice pebble beach with clear water. The water all the way from the beach, all the way up to the point is completely calm and very nice for swimming.
If you walk another five minutes along the shoreline, you can get into the water on the level of the first little island in Kneze bay.
We swam all the way out to the big island in Kneze bay, this was a challenge as the current once we swam past the point of the bay, was extremely strong. I would not suggest swimming past the point into the channel unless you’re a very strong swimmer with flippers.
The bottom past the point is nice for snorkeling, a mixture of sand and seaweed. We found quite a few nice shells, and saw some special sea shells which look like 1/2 a fan, with the sharp end grown into the bottom of the ocean. These ones however we left alone, as not only they were alive, they are apparently protected in Croatia as they are a dying species only found in the Adriatic sea.
Overall the little walk to the beach, the swim to the island, diving, and coming back, was a 2 1/2 hour excursion, all though we could have gone to the beach, swum for 10 minutes and come back… it’s up to you if you want to challenge yourself!
