Triathlon Long island - Embraced by nature

Long island nature

The islands have long been known as an oasis of peace for travellers giving them an overwhelming experience of relaxation and spiritual and physical rest. Each island still has its „wild“ side as a true evidence of the constant activities of unstoppable forces of nature - the sea and the wind.
Dugi otok is a true example of a place where these two opposites are most evident.Picturesque villages and secluded beaches collide with majestic cliffs and lush vegetation.

Sakarun bay

Seen from the hillside above the bay, the sea is an intense turquoise-blue, more akin to the Caribbean than the Adriatic. The bay faces south, onto the open sea, and is rimmed by an 800-metre arch of smooth white stone, which in turn is backed by pinewoods. This is Saharun (aka Sakarun) beach, one of Croatia’s loveliest but least-known spots.


On the outer side of Telašćica Bay vertical cliffs rise into the most prominent steep slope of the Adriatic Sea – the famous “stine” of Dugi otok. The steep slope stretches from Cape Mrzlovica in the southwest to the mountainside of Veli Vrh in the southeast reaching a height of 161 m in Grpašćak. The greatest depths can reach 85 m. The area is rich in interesting flora and fauns, and dolphins may be seen swimming along the cliffs. Different corals, including the already endangered red corals, live underwater on the cliffs.
