Murter is an island of fishermen, olive groves and shipbuilders. The island is in the northwest part of the Šibenik archipelago, separated from the mainland by a 20 m wide sea canal at Tisno which is spanned by a short draw-bridge. The island covers an area of about 18.7 km2. The island has been populated for nearly two millennia. An Illyric-Roman settlement known as Colentum has been found near Betina. In 1293, documents show that Murter was called "Villa Magna' meaning big village.
