Beaches in Zadar

Beaches in Zadar

are mostly situated on the northern side of town in the Borik zone, as well as along the city center in the Kolovare and Arbanasi area. Taking into consideration that Zadar is a relatively big city it still has good quality beaches and it is possible to “take a dip in city center”, which is uncommon for coastal urban areas. We should also mention its monument to sea cleanliness and summer sports - the annual “millennium jump”. It is an attraction that takes place every July when thousands of enthusiasts dive into the sea from the waterfront of Zadar city center.
