Spend a day in Zadar
Spend a day in Zadar…

On a boat. Take an early morning ferry from the harbour to either the north or south of Dugi Otok, a rugged island just over an hour’s journey away. Drive north to Sakarun, one of the region’s best beaches, a shallow, turquoise bay with a white-sand bottom, fringed by pine trees. Or sail south to Sali, the largest town on the island.
The tourist office in Sali has information on boat trips to the Kornati National Park – a scattering of small islands, dusted with scrubby grass and ringed by necklaces of scree. Trips include a cruise along the starkly beautiful cliffs at Telascica bay, a swim in a sandy cove and lunch at a remote konoba. Alternatively, visit Paklenica National Park and hike among karstic peaks, caves and gorges.
