is an island in Zadar’s archipelago with the landscape of 63 square kilometers. It is divided from the mainland with narrow canal, named Pašman’s canal. The uniqueness of the canal is that currents are periodically changing their curse, approximately every six hours. This makes Pašman’s canal the place with the cleanest sea in Croatia
. There are spots where Pašman’s canal is just two meters wide, but, still, there are a dozen of small islets, sprouted around like greenish jewels. The area of Pašman’s canal is suitable for all kinds of water sports, sailing and diving.
On the coast of the canal, a village Kraj
is settled. Small, but picturesque, it is easy to reach. Just 3 kilometers distanced from town Pašman, the biggest on the island, and right on the state road running over the island.
Village has the Gothic Franciscan monastery with church built in the year 1392. Residents are mostly occupied with agriculture, viniculture and olive growth. Tourism is an emerging industry, since tourists recognized unique and pure nature’s beauty of Kraj and its surroundings.Holiday accommodation
can be found in comfortable and modern apartments
where kind hosts will offer you all you might wish for, or in a nearby camp. Enjoy homegrown food prepared on a traditional Dalmatian way which is considered one of the healthiest on the world.
Tratica is a sandy beach
right in the village which is the most beautiful beach on the island Pašman. Because of its shallow crystal water it is considered to be extra safe for children.
