Anyone who has already spent a summer holiday on the island, will tell you it’s a very unique experience. The natural beauty and tranquility of the island seems to attract many tourists. As with any island, we are sometimes faced with challenges getting there. However, Murter Island, the largest island in the Šibenik area, is quite another story. Located in central Dalmatia, they are at the doorstep of the Kornati islands, separated from the mainland by only a short drawbridge.
Besides Murter as the largest and oldest settlement on the island, there are a further three places: Betina, Jezera and Tisno. Due to its architecture, Betina is one of the most beautiful towns found on the Adriatic, and enjoys the status of the Adriatic wooden shipbuilding town. Jezera is known as one of the strongest central-Dalmatian fishing centres and its main asset, apart from nautical tourism, is the Jezera Village Holiday Resort. Tisno is the newest town on Murter, built on the spot where the island of Murter almost touches the mainland. During the summer season you will experience various sports competitions but prior to this, the Murter – Kornati Regatta is held in April as an introduction to the summer season. Traditional festivities include the St. Roko celebration (August 16) and Murter feast of the Nativity of Mary (September 8).
Murter is widely known for its wonderful bays and beaches including the distinguished beaches of Luke, Podvrske, Čigrađa and Lovišće. The various beaches and surroundings provide a base for numerous other facilities and activities for those in search of something more active such as sailing, diving, tennis, running, biking, bowling, windsurfing, jogging and renting a boat.
