Unconventional holiday in Croatia

Island Zizanj

Croatia, Northern Dalmatia

The Croatian island of Zizanj belongs to the smallest inhabited islands in the whole Adriatic. The size of the island is almost 1 km2 and the length of coast is 5 km. Žižanj is situated in front of the seashore of the island of Pasman in the North Dalmatia, 30 minutes journey by the ferry from the town of Biograd. The next closest little island is Gangaro which is as small as Zizanj.

There is no car traffic on the island. Those who arrive by car can leave it in a guarded parking in Biograd and then they can continue without the noise of car engine towards their holiday house or suite on Zizanj.

There are no villages on the island of Zizanj but a lot of beautiful separate fishing cottages and holiday houses for rent are there instead. Shops, restaurants and pubs can be found on the neighbouring island of Pasman which can be reached by a motorboat in couple minutes. Pasman is situated about 300 meters north of Zizanj across a channel. That is why a little boat is usually part of equipment of every holiday house and suite on Zizanj. Thanks to this fact, visitors can make trips to the West coast of Pasman to discover a number of nice coves which are normally inaccessible because of their steap shores.

It is possible to observe dolphins who also live in waters around the island. If you decide to visit this small but promising island, you will definitely enjoy your holiday!

Swimming and beach Island Zizanj

Zizanj itself has many little sand beaches easily accessible by walking. You will enjoy undisturbed swimming because there are only a few people on the island. Most of the holiday houses and suites of Zizanj are situated right on the coast and they are often provided with an anchorage for the boat nad their own little beach. Visitors can use the boat to reach the shores of the island of Pasman where they can find many nice coves and pleasant little beaches for swimming. These are otherwise inaccessible because of the steap rocks. Zizanj is a real paradise for fishermen and divers. There is an incredibly variable and colourful undersea world in the channel between the two islands.
