Privlaka is a sandy peninsula that is 7 km long and 4 km wide. It is situated north from the city of Zadar and it is a true oasis of sandy beaches with shallow and clean sea. Privlaka was first mentioned in 13th century and for generations it was associated with the sea, seafaring and fishing. Famous „Sabunjari“ from Privlaka are men who were known for their hard work of excavating the sand from the sea which they then carried on shoulders to the wooden boats. For that reason many restaurants, tourist facilities and sport clubs nowadays are called “sabun” or “sabunjari”.
