Almost every island has its own beach named Veli zal (The great beach), so we can find such great beaches on Cres, Korcula, and also on Dugi otok (Long island). If you find an apartment, room or vacation house in Dragove on the Dugi otok, you have the opportunity to meet the beauty of the Veli zal beach and find out why this name marks many locations along the coast of blue Adriatic sea. Dragove are located on a hillside within the island, where the island is narrowest and descending from it to any coast, guarantees the enjoyment of biological and natural diversity. The east coast of Dugi otok is closer, but the south-western is not far away either, with Veliki zal beach, which is actually a bit over 3 kilometres away from the centre of the place. It takes about 8 minutes for a car to reach it along local roads when it is not crowded. You will need less than an hour of walking to it, minutes to gleam the summer sun and refresh with the aroma of Mediterranean aromatic plants along the way. Make sure you have enough fluid on your way to the beach in the hot summer months. Pebble Veli zal beach is long, just as its name says, and pebbles are somewhere crossed by the rocks and paved paths. Facing south, beach is left to the hot suns touch whole day long, while the clear sea shines with turquoise from sandy bottom of the bay. The beach overlooks the islet of Mezanj, but the sun goes far beyond it, and it goes down in the brilliant sea for the delight of those who have extended their stay on the beach or stayed on the cafe terrace beside. Enjoy it through the day!
