Island of Iz, Zadar

5.0
#4 of 9 in Parks in Zadar
Get active with water sports or simply explore the local charms at Island of Iz, a small but cozy island popular for its traditional crafts, extensive ethnographic collection, and clean beaches. Swim, surf, water-ski, sail, or dive in the waters here. When you've worked up an appetite, explore the fresh, local cuisine, preparation of which largely reflects the island's industries of sailing, fishing, olive cultivation, and pottery. A bakery, a few restaurants, a small supermarket, and a bar on the marina will satisfy your basic needs. At the end of July, the Iž Festival involves the locals dressing up in traditional costumes and performing old island songs and dances. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Zadar trip simple and quick.

  • On this remote and secluded island of Zadar's inhabitants commute to their dachas. Tourists can go here and have a rest from city vanity, as the village. Rest here in nature, away from city noise, brings peace and calmness. true, a little nerdy, can quickly get bored.

Where to stay in Zadar

If proximity to the sights in Zadar is your priority, opt to stay in the old town, a compact area packed with historical buildings. Although this area offers few budget-friendly hotel rooms, you can choose from affordable hostels within walking distance of the city's main sights. Zadar's resort hotels tend to hug the coastline, a short drive out of the city. Book ahead if you want to stay there, or stop by the city's tourist office for a list of private rooms closer to the city center.
