Heart-Shaped Croatian Island

This lovely heart shaped Croatian island is located in Zadarski Kanal (Zadar Channel) between Zadar and Island of Pasman.

I checked several maps, but couldn’t find the name of the island, so if somebody knows which island is this, please help – Thanks! Large map of this hear shaped island in Croatian Adriatic

    You do know that there is nothing on this island?
    The only way to go there is by a small boat…
    I will surely take a look this year…

    It makes my curious for this island because of a song to
    descriping it.

    The song is about a couple, and the girl with serious sick, however, she really wants to find this island in her remaining life.
    The boy finally found it, but the girl didn’t, beacuse disease took her life away. The story is a tragedy in this song, but we can enjoy the travel in actual life. Right??
