Ugljan island

Ugljan island, the 14th largest Adriatic island, is situated between Zadar mainland and Iž island. Besides Kali, there are six villages on the island: Preko, Kukljica, Poljana, Sutomišćica, Lukoran and Ugljan. In 2016, ‘Best European Destination’ named Ugljan ‘a hidden jewel’. Ugljan island is often called ‘the garden of Zadar’, for its rich Mediterranean vegetation.


Islet Školjić or Galevac is situated just 85 meters off Preko village coastline. You can get there by boat. Since the 15th century, the islet has been home to the franciscan monastery of St. Paul the Hermit. The book inventory of the monastery was declared natural heritage.

Sv. Mihovil

The highest peak of Ugljan is Šćah, but its landscape is largely dominated by the medieval fortress of St. Michaels (263m), commanding a breathtaking view of the entire Zadar archipelago, the islands of Iž, Pašman and Dugi otok. The road to St. Michael’s is paved so you can drive all the way up. Also, there are marked hiking trails for those who prefer to walk.


If you're spending your summer holidays in Kali, you definitely have to take a daytrip to Zadar. We believe you will be delighted by the world-famous Sea organ and Greetings to the Sun. Walk through the Roman ruins, meet the 3000 years-old cultural and historical heritage and - don't forget to check out the Museum of Ancient Glass.


Only 780m sea distance from Kali sits Ošljak island. This green jewel rising from the crystal-clear sea is the smallest inhabited island in the Adriatic. The untouched natural beauty simply calls for a daytrip.

Pašman island

Pašman island is only a bridge away from Ugljan. It has many beaches, lagoons and coves ideal for swimming and sunbathing. Pašman channel, a stretch of sea between Pašman island and the Zadar mainland, is teeming with scattered islets easily accessible by boat.

Kornati National park

Kornati archipelago, known also as Stomorski islands, includes approximately 140 islands and islets, making it the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. Due to its exquisite landscape, interesting geomorphology, diversity of the coastline and the vibrant biocenosis of the marine eco-system, it was declared a national park in 1980.

Nature park Telašćica

is situated on the southernmost part of Dugi otok island. Beautiful meadows and hills with rich Mediterranean flora are a home to about 500 plant species and an equally vibrant fauna. The seabed abounds with roughly 300 plant and animal species. Nature Park Telašćica offers diving opportunities close to the cliffs, and a couple of very interesting walks. Be sure not to miss out on the view from Grpašćak lookout. Stop by Telašćica, visit Lake Mir, a unique salty lake with medicinal properties, check out the Roman ruins and take a dip in one of the 25 beaches.

Krka National Park

The 'Magnificent Seven' – travertine waterfalls of Krka - waits for you at Krka National park. Many consider Krka river to be the most beautiful strip of Dalmatian karst, a majestic flow of thundering water cascades.
