The island Ugljan is part of the Zadar archipelago and the island nearest to the mianland.
The fortress of St. Mihovil, offering an unforgettable view of the Zadar archipelago, dominates this green island lying opposite Zadar.
The island’s hilly but tranquil interior is criss-crossed by footpaths and cycle tracks, while Preko, Kukljica and Ugljan have a long fishing tradition.
Osljak has an authentic fishing harbour, and while on Galevac a visit to the Franciscan monastery is a must.
A hundred thousand olive trees from which oil of exceptional quality is derived even today ensure the local two thousand year old olive-growing tradition.
