Three Days on Croatian Island Dugi Otok

Three Days on Croatian Island Dugi Otok, Sali, Croatia (B)

After much search and planning, we had decided to spend 3 days of our motorcycle trip across South Eastern Europe in Croatia’s Dugi Otok (Croatian for ‘Long Island’) island this past summer. We desperately needed a few days of complete relaxation and Dugi Otok was our rest stop amidst the long motorcycle trip.

Dugi Otok is a large island located on the southwestern part of Croatia, some 2 hours ferry ride from a Croatian coastal city called Zadar. We were fully aware how touristy the Croatian coast can get during summer, so we carefully selected a less-known island for our summer holiday. It wasn’t easy: Croatian islands and beaches on the mainland are all stunning, but we finally settled for Dugi Otok (thanks Google maps! ) as we wanted to stay somewhere close to Croatia-Slovenia border for making it easier when doing the very long return trip to Lodz, Poland.

We arrived in Zadar after spending a nice summer afternoon in the extremely pretty, red-roofed city of Dubrovnik, some 5 hours away (on motorbikes!) from Zadar. It was a nice journey and I very much enjoyed the inland views of Croatia from the motorbike. By the time we arrived in Zadar, we were eager to board the ship. It was about an hour wait at the terminal until our ship arrived. We loaded the motorbikes into the ship and took seats on upper sundeck. It was quite chilly by that point (8 in the evening or so..) but the colors on the wide sky above the sea after sunset were beautiful. ......
