Rent a bike on Ugljan island
Only a short 25-minute boat journey across the Zadar Channel, Ugljan is a green, mountainous island carpeted with olive groves and dotted with small fishing ports. Ugljan is relatively populated (compared to some other islands). There is a row of seven beautiful villages that stand like seven jewels. The largest is Preko, followed by Ugljan.
Preko is the administrative center of Ugljan island and where the Jadrolinija boats dock. It's a delightful place to linger, sipping a coffee along the harbor or strolling the tiny town. From Preko a hiking path leads up to St Michael's church (265m) with a sweeping view of the island and Zadar's archipelago.
All the villages on the island have an imprint of the harmonious combination of abundant Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, as well as traditional and contemporary entertainment and recreation.
Explore the island of Ugljan and biking trails through the picturesque villages, and many natural bays, especially those in Mulina, which offer suitable moorings for sailors or a secluded corner for naturists.
Named after the Croatian word for olive (ulje), Ugljan makes a great rustic escape from busy Zadar or an alternative place to stay.
