A superb 4-bedroom villa right by the sea, Villa Kukljica is found on the Croatian island of Ugljan, just across the water from Zadar. This modern, beachfront property sits in spacious gardens and features a large outdoor pool with amazing views.

With sun loungers on one side and the beach on the other, the pool is sure to be a focal point of your stay. You have covered terraces for relaxing and dining, a large barbecue, shower and balconies on the upper floors, and all this is within a short walk of nearby restaurants and amenities.

There are panoramic sea views from the interior living area, which includes a large TV with satellite channels and comfortable sofa seating. The very modern kitchen forms part of the same open-plan space, and offers high-quality appliances and a breakfast bar. A master bedroom with en suite is also located on this floor.

On the upper floor, there are three more double bedrooms with en suite and air-conditioning. Tastefully furnished, these spacious rooms also offer lots of storage. Free Wi-Fi and onsite parking is available at Villa Kuklijca.

A green and pleasant island, Ugljan is a good place for those seeking peace and quiet – it has many nice beaches and hidden coves, and isn’t overdeveloped. Taverns and restaurants provide excellent local cuisine, while the island’s landscapes are perfect for hiking and cycling.

It takes around 25 minutes by boat to reach the city of Zadar on the Croatian mainland. This interesting city in North Dalmatia is known for two unique attractions – the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation – and has a variety of churches and museums to visit. Excursions to National Parks like Krka and the Kornati Islands are also unmissable.

A mountainous island just off the Dalmatian Coast, Ugljan is perfect if you’re seeking beaches and beautiful areas of nature. The island’s main centres, such as Preko, Kuklijca and Ugljan village itself, line the eastern coast, while the western side is devoted to rugged countryside.

Serving a population of around 7,500, the small town of Prego is the island’s administrative centre. The pretty harbour is a highlight, while the hike up to St Michael’s Church will reward you with incredible views back to Zadar. To the south, the attractive fishing port at Kali and the sandy beaches of Kuklijca may also appeal. Zelena Punta and Kostanj are pleasant choices, while Jaz Beach, near Prego, is good for facilities.

Olive groves and vineyards add character to the island, while extends to 24km north to south and just 4km east to west. If you head for the tourism office in Preko, they will be able to provide details of extensive trekking and biking trails. Galleries, museums and a good selection of restaurants, particularly in Ugljan village, provide more options for trips out.

It’s only a 25-minute ferry ride back to Zadar on the Croatian mainland, with the Gaženica port about 3km from the centre of town. A beautiful and historic city, Zadar has several sights worth visiting. The Roman Forum, beside the Archbishop’s Palace and the Church of St Donat, is one such Old Town highlight – it’s one of the stops on walking tours which will teach you more about Zadar’s history.

Artefacts from Roman times can also be viewed at one of Zadar’s more recent additions – The Museum of Ancient Glass. Found in Cosmacendi Palace, the museum enjoys lovely views over Jazine Harbour. Be sure to experience the wonders of the unique Sea Organ, which uses wave power to play its tunes, and the Sun Salutation – a glorious art installation is the place to see the sun set. Both of these intriguing pieces are the creation of Croatian architect, Nikola Bašić.

Elsewhere, Zadar offers green space in the form of Vladimira Nazora Park, which sits between the Old Town and the city’s modern area. The adjacent Five Wells Square is a photogenic landmark situated close to the waterfront. From here, several cultural attractions are a short walk away, including a National Museum, the Croatian National Theatre and the impressive Cathedral of St Anastasia.

The island of Ugljan is somewhere the kids can really relax. Don’t expect big theme parks, zoos and the like – this is a place to get back to nature and just chill. They will have plenty of beaches and secluded coves to uncover, as well as lengthy bike trails and scenic hikes. You can hire bikes in Preko and follow the coastal path to Kuklijca, or head out west to see the uninhabited parts of the island.

Other good alternatives for days out include boat trips around the Kornati Islands, south west of Ugljan, or the wonderful lakes and waterfalls of the forested Plitvice National Park – one of the best-loved attractions in the whole of Croatia.

Also back on the mainland, the city of Zadar has plenty to keep children entertained. They can hang out at Kolovare Beach, not far from the centre of town, where you will find crystal clear waters and areas of white sand and pebbles. The pretty Vladimira Nazora Park is a centrally located green oasis that’s ideal for a picnic, or you could go for a drink on the café terraces of People’s Square – a great spot for soaking up the vibe of busy Zadar.

If they’ve got the energy, they can climb the bell tower at the Cathedral of St Anastasia and admire the amazing views from the city’s highest viewpoint, or walk the City Walls – the oldest sections date back to Roman times. Younger children, meanwhile, will be very happy taking the little train which rides the streets of Zadar.

Two of the city’s best-known attractions are much more recent additions, and give Zadar something you won’t find anywhere else. Croatian architect Nikola Bašić’s Sun Saluation and Sea Organ are must-sees.

The Sun Salutation uses solar energy to power a spectacular light show, which illuminates the pavement using glass panels, while the Sea Organ creates tuneful, wave-generated tones in stone stairs which lead down to the ocean. These two inventive creations are located near each other, and just a short walk from the Old Town.

If they’re hungry for more, Zadar packs in everything from escape rooms and museums to movie theatres and puppet shows, while the wider area adds adventure parks, a donkey farm and mhch more besides.
