Do you dream of a vacation in a picturesque landscape, where you can really relax? Then the island of Ugljan
is the perfect destination for you!
If you are planning to spend your vacation in Croatia, we can recommend a dream destination. Crystal clear sea, sandy beaches, small bays, olive trees - you will find all of this on the idyllic island of Ugljan.
The island of Ugljan is one of the largest islands in Croatia
, located in the Zadar archipelago
, in the beautiful region of Dalmatia. You can reach this magical island by ferry from Zadar
, as Ugljan is located right across from Zadar, only 25 minutes away.
As soon as you reach the island, you will enter the town of Preko
. The name of this town speaks for itself, because “preko” means “across” in Croatian. This small town offers a perfect destination to experience typical Dalmatian architecture, with a visit to St. Mihovil Castle
being a must while staying on Ugljan.
However, Preko is not the only place on the island where you can experience authentic Dalmatian culture
, as the Kali and Kukljica settlements
are also well worth a visit. While walking through the small streets of Preko, Kali and Kukljica, you will experience a piece of the Mediterranean, as you walk past typical Dalmatian stone houses
. During the summer, these towns offer numerous events
such as fishing festivals, summer theatres, concerts and exhibitions.
And don't forget to try traditional Dalmatian dishes
in small authentic restaurants and taverns
! Olive oil, fish dishes, mussels, risotto and prosciutto are just some of the specialties that you must try during your stay in Dalmatia.
If you want to get away from towns to discover hidden natural beauties,
you should definitely go to the other side of the island. Although Ugljan has stunning sandy beaches on the northern side
, the hidden coves and beaches on the southern side
of the island will delight you! The island of Ugljan is not only suitable for relaxing and sunbathing though. Since the island has numerous bays and a rich underwater world, it is a real challenge for all adrenaline lovers
. This dream location also offers many hiking and biking trails
, as well as a wide range of extreme sports activities
such as climbing, cycling and diving. If you want to spend your vacation actively, there are various bike paths available, on which you can visit the coast, but also the inland.
An indispensable part of your stay is of course a visit to the nearby islands of Pasman, Rivanj and Sestrunj
. Not far from Ugljan, there is also the perfect opportunity to take a trip to Plitvice, Krka and Telascica Nature Parks.
