The Historic town of Biograd na moru (´by the sea´) is set amongst crystal clear waters overlooking the ´olive isle´ of Pašman, and the beautiful Kornati archipelago. From the majestic Velebit Mountains to the graceful Krka waterfalls, the five national parks in this region make Biograd a unique destination.    

Biograd is the gateway to the Island of Pašman . The western coast is exemplary of a pristine mediterranean landscape. Visit the medieval monasteries, rural villages, vineyards and olive groves, ideal for eco-tourism. Nature hike or drive to its highest peak, Bokoj. The effort is rewarded by a stunning view of the Dinaric Alps to the east, and a myriad of tiny Kornati islands to the west. In the poetic words of George Bernard Shaw …"On the last day of the Creation, God desired to crown his work, and thus created the Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath …".  

The Dalmatian coast, with 1000 islands to explore, is simply described as a sailing paradise. You can drop anchor where you please, fish, or take heavenly swims in the myriad of deserted & picturesque bays, far from the tourist masses. Undisturbed sea flora and fauna is the perfect invitation for scuba diving and snorkeling.   Nearby islands and national parks include Pašman, Vrgada, Ždrelac and the National parks of Plitvice, Kornati, Paklenica, Krka and Vransko jezero  .
