It is located only 15 minutes from Zadar and is the smallest inhabited island in the Adriatic. It is surrounded by olive trees, pine and cypress trees.
Preko is adorned by the large sandy beach Jaz, which with its ecological Blue Flag is a true example of the clean Croatian Adriatic Sea. For history lovers, in this place there is a small Romanesque church of St. John from the 11th century and the early Christian church of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Galevac is a small islet located off the coast of the island of Ugljan, to which you can swim as it is only 80 meters from Preko. On the island is the church of St. Paul and the Franciscan monastery of St. Pavle Pustinjak, which served as a hospital in the 17th century.
