“Fancy something a little different? In Dalmatia the sandy seashore rivals anything the Med can offer. Zaton is ideally placed for historic Zadar and is in walking distance to picturesque Nin. Don’t forget your camera! This is one of the most naturally beautiful areas in Europe and there’s an excellent mix of sunshine, warm waters, and great food.”
