Visit the Zadar region of Northern Dalmatia if you’re a fan of beautiful beaches, glorious islands and wonderful national parks. It is a popular place for sailing and boating, and can cater for both active or relaxed holidays.

Things to do in the Zadar region 

The Zadar region is a wonderful place for sailing, national parks, and beaches. The best way to see the stunning islands is from a boat, and many of the little towns have boat moorings. Spend a few days or a week sailing around the Northern Dalmatian islands and see both interesting towns and untouched natural beauty. There are also regular ferries from Zadar and Biograd to the islands. 

ZADAR area Places to  stay

  • Zadar and Biograd

    Rich in history, both areas of Zadar and Biograd have plenty to explore and experience.

  • Pag Island

    Pag Island has charisma, charm and is host to some of Croatia's music festivals.  

  • Zadar Archipelago Islands

    These Islands have an abundance of unspoilt nature, providing some great places to discover off the beaten track. 

There is a fantastic range of beaches to choose from, where you can swim, windsurf or waterski. This area is also fantastic for diving, and you can find great diving spots in Pag, Dugi Otok and the Kornati Islands. The islands all have lots of great walking and cycling tracks through nature and along pretty coastlines. Exploring is also a lot of fun. Maybe you’ll find a secluded beach, which feels like it’s never been walked upon before. Maybe you’ll eat the best meal of your life at tiny tavernas in small island villages.

National Parks

The Zadar region has three national parks, Plitvice Lakes, Paklenica National Park and Kornati National Park. Plitvice is the biggest and most beautiful of Croatia’s national parks. It is full of turquoise lakes, flowing rivers, stunning waterfalls, caves, mountains and forest, and just a two hour drive from Zadar.
