Nin’s famous long sandy beaches are located in the vicinity of the villas. Children are the ones who especially love the sandy beaches where they can swim, play and build sand castles.

Nearby, just a few kilometres away from Nin’s beautiful sandy beaches (the most famous being PLIŠA and ŽDRIJAC) is the tourist resort ZATON, with it’s long beaches and the faclities that can accomodate several thousand guests.

Nin is surrounded by the sea for tens of kilometres on one side and the mouth of the Jaruga river on the other. The river is ideal for swimmers who prefer deeper waters or who like diving.

On the way to ZADAR and PETRČANI are several famous beaches with shade and deeper seas: PUNTA SKATA and PINIJA.

Further away toward the island VIR are the beaches of PRIVLAKA…

Cultural heritage

It’s impossible to write birefly about the cultural heritage of Nin. When you speak about the cultural heritage of Nin you are speaking about the history and cultural heritage of Croatia. Many kings and bishops kept court in Nin. The well known church of the St. Cross from the 9th century is the smallest cathedral in the world, but also the oldest cathedral in Croatia. On your way from Zadar, after passing Zaton, located on a small hill on the side of the road, is the ancient church of St. Nikola, that people frequently visit on foot. For good luck you can touch the worn out big toe of the great statue of Grgur of Nin, sculpted by the famous artist Ivan Meštrović. Artifacts made of silver and gold are definetly worth visiting, as well as the museums, galleries, the excavations od the temple of Venus and countless other sights. Every summer, along with a multitude of other events, a seven-day art colony called MORE (THE SEA) is held. Its host are your hosts Jozo and Jelka. Nin is a town in which you cannot dig without stumbling upon a Roman-age artifact of some sort.

The city walls of Nin are reasonably well preserved. The entrance to the old town of Nin is over a stone bridge and through the Bardela gate. Next to the second gate is the renovated church of St. Ambrosius. The church of St. Anselmo and it’s tower dominate the city. The old town of Nin is a small island you can walk around. It’s nice to stroll through Nin’s town centre in any time of the year. The peace and quiet in the winter is nice, but so are the crowds in the summer where you can enjoy Nin’s festivities by the sea. The timidity of the landscape is very pleasing to children.

Nin really is special and unique.
