Zaglav, Croatia - holiday information

Zaglav, Dugi otok, Croatia – visitor information

Zaglav is located on the „gates” of the Kornati islands and is an attractive destination for yachtsmen and vacation lovers. The resort lies on a plain above the Triluke cove on the east coast of the island. Farming, olive-growing, cattle breeding, fishing and tourism are the economic base of the settlement, and you can find accommodation in private rooms and suites where you can spend a quiet and pleasant holiday. The settlement lies on the regional road running along the island which makes movement easier. Zaglav is proudest of its cultural heritage, its active Franciscan monastery and church of St. Michael, the patron-saint of the settlement which dates back to the 15th century. In addition, Zaglav is an inevitable spot for all yachtsmen since it has a gas station, the only one in the Zadar archipelago. Besides beautiful beaches, Zaglav is a place of sport activities such as beach volleyball or diving, and all year long tournaments are held in basketball and beach volley where lovers of these vigorous sports can participate.
