The Zadar Archipelago is the Adriatic aquatorium in vicinity of Zadar that consist of of hundreds of smaller and larger islands and islets, stretching along the coast over the area of about 400 square kilometres.

Although this is a large number of islands, only twenty of them are permanently populated while other has no permanent residents. The archipelago also includes popular Kornati Islands National Park and Telascica Nature Park. Due to its amazing landscape and clear waters, Zadar Archipelago is popular among sailing enthusiasts as well as among a people who seek isolation in untouched nature.

Getting there:

To travel to some of these islands you can use public transport as all islands with permanent residents in the archipelago are interconnected by daily ferries from neighboring islands as well as with Zadar and Biograd Na Moru on the mainland. However, to visit smaller, unpopulated islands, you would need to either rent a boat or take a locally organized day trip excursion to the islands. The nearest airport is Zadar.


As far as accommodation is concerned, each of inhabited these islands offers accommodation in private rooms and apartments that are rented by local residents while just some of the uninhabited islands there are few fisherman’s cottages to rent – check here for offers of accommodation in the Zadar Region
