Kakan is an uninhabited island in the group of islands in front of Sibenik. Kakan is separated from the island of Kaprije in the east by the Kakan channel. It is formed of limestone. A series of knolls ends in the south-east of the island.
In the valleys, where some red soil may be found, the inhabitants of the neighboring island of Kaprije grow vines and olives; the rest of the island is covered with grasses and low underbrush. Along the north-eastern coast are the islets of Veli and Mali Borovnjak, along the south-eastern coast Veli and Mali Kamenjak, and along the north-western coast a cliff called Mala Mare (Little Mary).
Kakan is a favorite destination of excursionists and boaters, who enjoy peace, quietness and intact nature. Next to the nice grove is a beach.
