Island Pasman

Island Pasman

is one of the destinations everyone has heard about, but try asking someone to name one of the settlements on the island and you will soon realize that no one was actually there. Especially if you try to mention the settlements …. Dobropoljana, Zdrelac, Barotul, Nevidane …. everyone will say that they are on Brac, Pag, Cres or any other island rather than Pasman. Soon it will become obvious that no one actually vacationed on Pasman. Even though Pasman is one of the “closer Zadar islands”, located just opposite of Biograd and connected by ferry, it has all the characteristics of smaller and more distant islands and isles on which you can spend your holiday away from mass tourism. The island side overlooking Kornati is almost completely uninhabited with numerous coves and anonymous beaches to be discovered, while on the side overlooking mainland you can find sandy beaches. Considering it is connected to Ugljan with a bridge these two islands are often cited as one – Ugljan Pasman – and when vacationing on one usually it is unavoidable to visit the other.


is the first settlement you reach after leaving mainland and passing the bridge. It is interesting how the settlement is positioned with one part towards the mainland and the other towards Dugi otok and Kornati so if its a bit windy you just have to go to the other side and swim in the lee.


is a ferry port on the southern side of Pasman that connects Pasman with Biograd. It has long boardwalks along the sea for jogging or strolling, nice gravely, sandy beaches and clean sea. The settlement has a dispensary, stores, an exchange office, pharmacy and a post office along with numerous apartments. Next to Tkon is the hill Cokovac where you can visit the unique Croatian male Benedictine monastery – monastery of St. Kuzma and Damjan dating back to the 12th century. Also you can enjoy the wonderful view of the islands Pasman and Kornati or go diving, surfing or sailing.
