Molat is an island in north Dalmatia, covered with maquis and pine forests and is the ideal destination for hermits and those seeking hiking treks among a Mediterranean vegetation. The many bays are a frequent destination for sailors. The island is situated in the northern part of Zadar's archipelago. It is southeast of the island of Ist, separated from it by the Zapuntel strait; area 22.7 sq km; population 222. The relief is characterized by two limestone ridges (the highest peak Knizak, 142 m), separated from each other by the Zapuntel-Brgulje valley (Zapuntel Field); the Bay of Brgulje is its south-eastern submerged part. A smaller transversal valley (Molat Field) stretches in the south-eastern part of the island.
