Swimming in world famous Sakarun bay

Sakarun Bay

Sakarun is one of the most famous beaches in Zadar County, located on the northwest coast of the island.

Near the beach are the places Veli Rat, Veruni, Soline and Božava. The beach gained its reputation with the whiteness of the sand and clean sea, surrounded by pine trees that provide a welcome shade in the summer. It is about 800 meters long and at some 250 meters from the shore it is 3.5 meters deep.

Quite possibly the nicest swim course I've ever been to. Andrej Vištica, Croatian Triathlon Champion
