The intensity of the colours: the dark green pinewoods, the shimmering white pebbles, and the sea that changes hue during the day, depending on the position of the sun.

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 Sakarun (aka Saharun) beach, one of Croatia’s loveliest but least-known spots. You’ll find it at the north end of Dugi Otok island, in North Dalmatia, which remains a pleasantly low-profile destination, despite Croatia’s current popularity.

Sakarun – One of the most beautiful beaches in the Adriatic ... Crystal clear sea, pristine nature and white sand will delight every visitor...

Spend an extraordinary day discovering a gorgeous Natural Park and National Park!

Note: Sports wear and comfortable sports shoes are recommended, Don't forget to take swimsuit, towel and sun protection, Don't forget your camera!
