Bare in mind when you arrive at Krka you then have to get a shuttle bus down to the footpath. You could walk this but it would probably take a long time. The shuttle bus takes around ten minutes, so not too long, and is included in the price of your entrance ticket. From here you can begin walking around the footpath which takes around the national park.
Onto the main event – actually swimming next to the waterfalls! My number one tip is to take some jelly shoes to wear in the water. Make sure they are the type that actually fastens to your feet – I took slider style jelly shoes and they fell off my feet so many times! The water is very, very rocky so something on your feet is an absolute must. You won’t get very far if you try to go in with bare feet. It is also not super easy to actually enter the water. It is an all natural national park, only the walkways and any safety barriers are man-made therefore you need to be prepared to do some clambering around to get into the water. Once you’re in around the sides you can stand up, but there are drops where you can’t touch the bottom. I like to be able to know where I can stand up and where I need to swim so I tended to stay where I knew I could stand on the rocks etc. We didn’t end up swimming right up to the barrier next to the waterfall.
