The genesis of Vodice is associated with the time they began to build St. Cross's Church (near the present Hotel Punta) in 1402. A Sibenik archive from that year mentions Vodice for the first time: serfs from Vodice were ordered to put aside part of their earnings for construction of Šibenik cathedral. There were only a few houses on the seaboard at the time. A fair was held here, where domestic farming and craft products were traded for those arrived on boats.
Vodice got thier name from the water-wells. There are 2 water - wells on the main square today kept as a monuments of the tradition.
