Croatia Beaches: Sakarun Beach (Dugi Otok)
Sakarun, one of the most famous beaches of Zadar County, is located on the northwest coast of Dugi Otok island. Near the beach are the villages of Verunić, Soline and Božava. Its reputation comes from its whiteness of the sand and cleanliness of the sea, and it is surrounded with a pine tree forest which offers welcome shade in the summer. It is about 800 metres long, and at 250 metres from the shore it is only 3.5 metres deep, which means that the space for bathing is extremely large and shallow, and suitable even for small children.
