Discover Dugi otok
Wherever you turn you’ll have fascinating clear, blue sea attracting you with its beauty. The hidden coves where you can find charming, untouched beaches, represent a challenge for researchers, but also to all those who want privacy and peace.
Sakarun is one of the most famous beaches located on the northwest coast of the island. The beach gained its reputation with the whiteness of the sand and clean sea, surrounded by pine trees that provide a welcome shade in the summer. It is about 800 meters long and at some 250 meters from the shore it is 3.5 meters deep, which means that the bathing area is extremely large and shallow and suitable even for young children.
Lighthouse Veli Rat
The imposing lighthouse is located on the north-western tip of Dugi otok. It was built in 1849 and it is 42 meters high and today it is the highest lighthouse in the Adriatic. It owes its impressiveness to its yellow facade, for which, according to oral tradition, 100 000 yolks were used. In the courtyard of the lighthouse is the chapel of St. Nicholas, a place increasingly in demand for organization of a romantic wedding.
Experience the island
The rugged landscape of Dugi otok will give walkers and cyclists an incredible view of the local waters of Zadar. The experience will be complemented by the untouched nature as well as by picturesque villages that will be a welcoming resting-place for fans of more stronger, physical challenges.
Nature Park Telašćica
Forests of Aleppo pine on one side and Holm oak on the other side, the area of cultivated fields of vineyards and olive-trees, as well as the area of rocky meadows. The Mediterranean vegetation is represented in the park with more than 400 plant species as well as numerous rare and endemic plants that have been recorded. The underwater world is home to about 250 plants and 300 animal organisms, including the now depleted red coral and the carnivorous sponge.
Cave Strašna Peć
We can suggest that this cave, thanks to its geographical position, at the very least served as a temporary habitat for early human populations on the island. A flint artefact, a small knife from the Stone Age, was accidentally found and due to the shape of the rope and the handle it is possible to date it to the Neolithic representing a rare finding at this moment.
