Drenched in sunlight, surrounded by sea, enjoying the sound of seagulls and the scent of pines, on a large and sandy peninsula there lies the fishermen’s village and tourist destination of Privlaka.
This is the perfect destination for family holidays, with its long sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, numerous shallow-water sandy coves and medicinal mud. Privlaka has for many years been one of the top destinations for idyllic family holidays due to its ideal combination of beautiful sandy coves and the high quality accommodation on offer (especially its range of private beautifully furnished and well equipped apartments).
Its magnificent sunsets are one of the main tourist attractions, making this an ideal destination for a getaway in a relaxing and Mediterranean atmosphere.
LOCATION AND CLIMATE:
Privlaka is situated in the heart of northern Dalmatia, surrounded by the royal town of Nin to the north east and the Island of Vir to the north west. The proximity and influence of Zadar make it one of the most attractive coastal centres in Zadar County. The Privlaka peninsula is seven kilometres long and four kilometres wide.
Privlaka has a mild, Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mostly mild winters. The mistral wind blowing from the north makes summer days more pleasant and the heat more bearable. The bora, a typical winter wind blowing down from the mountain of Velebit, brings low, sometimes even sub-zero temperatures. The Privlaka region enjoys pleasant warm sunshine and sunny days, with over 2540 hours of sun a year. The sea temperature during the summer ranges from 25 to 27 degrees.
If you approach Privlaka from the north east, you travel through the royal town of Nin with its rich history, whilst approaching Privlaka from the north west you travel across the Island of Vir. Those preferring an active holiday will enjoy the nearby village of Zaton which has a wide range of sports on offer. Privlaka is only 20 km from Zadar.
