Located on the Dugi Otok Island, Sakarun beach represents wonderful mixture of sheer white sand and crystal clear sea water, all surrounded by pine trees and that’s why most visitors describe it as a ‘Carribean flair in the heart of Europe’. The bathing area is large and shallow which makes this place a perfect spot for families with young children. There are two nice little bars on the beach and the nearest accommodation is less than 1 km away from the beach. Sakarun is located on the open sea and it’s protected by the long bay so water temperatures are always pleasant. For getting to beach, it is best to take the ferry from Zadar to Dugi Otok (takes less than 2 hours). For those who don’t go by car, there is a bus service running every 4 hours. There is also guided boat tours across the coast of Dugi Otok, day trips from Zadar and kayak tours especially popular for those with adventurous spirit.
