island Ugljan

The island of Ugljan is located opposite the town of Zadar, from which is separated by the Zadar canal. It is one of the most picturesque islands in the Zadar archipelago. The population has always been engaged in fishing, agriculture and, more recently, tourism. Ugljan is also known as the green island because it is covered with dense bushes, olive and vine groves, pine trees and other Mediterranean plants.

The island has seven settlements, the largest of which is Ugljan, situated on the north-western part of the island. Numerous fishing places are located along the entire north-eastern side of the island, in many beautiful coves, the most famous of which are Kukljica, Kali and Preko. The other side of the island is steep and unpopulated, but it is a true paradise for the divers, because of its rich underwater.

The place Ugljan has a long tourist tradition. It has a population of around 1000 and is situated on the regional traffic road which stretches along the island. History lovers can explore the mausoleum, remains of an early Christian basilica from the 1st century, Franciscan monastery, remains of a roman villa, as well as countless other cultural monuments. It is rich with sandy beaches, the most beautiful of which are located in the Mostir and Cinta coves. The center place of the island of Ugljan is located across Zadar. This is a typical Dalmatian location with a lot of country houses. Kali is famous for popular fishermen on the Adriatic. This is also a typical Dalmatian settlement with narrow streets and stone houses, with two special small ports which are always full of fishing boats. Poljana is a small settlement with numerous wells and sunny period which allow the growth of vegetables which are later sold on the Zadar market. Sport enthusiasts can have fun diving, practicing sport fishing or following footpaths or cycle trails located within the island.

The island of Ugljan can be reached by regular lines from Zadar.
