One of the most famous sandy beaches of the Adriatic is located on the island, Dugi Otok. Sakarun Beach is 800 metres long and faces the open sea. It has fine white sand which gives the sea a turquoise colour. The clean, very shallow sea and the pine forest attract romantic couples, elderly people and families with children. In the evening, the bars come alive and Sakarun becomes a gathering place for young people who organise beach parties.
