About the islands:
Ošljak is the smallest inhabited island on the Adriatic. It lies in Zadar canal on about 1 km distance from the island of Ugljan. Pine cypress forest and old olive grows cover the island giving it the wild appearance.
Ugljan is a 20 km long island which is situated opposite of Zadar. There are seven inhabited villages and all of them are facing towards the mainland. In the inland, behind the hills you can find untouched nature, meadows, pine and coniferous forest, olive grows and small cultivated gardens. Because of the karst relief and impassable old macadam roads, many island`s coves and beaches are reachable only by boat. Ugljan is also known as the Olive Island due to more than 200 000 olive trees growing on the island.
Pašman is green, picturesque island divided from the mainland by narrow Pašman Canal. The sea water in the canal is the cleanest of the entire Adriatic due to constant change of sea currents. Eleven little villages are located on the island facing towards the mainland. Traces of life in them date back in the Neolithic Era.
