If you do not prefer a boat ride, most recommended daily routine is to start your day reading your favourite book and having coffee at Lavender bed bar right in front of the beautiful city beach with magnificent wives on Pašman channel. After swimming and lying in the sun a light lunch is taken enjoyed in one of beach restaurants. Later in the afternoon after a cool shower and a bottle of Chardonnay your friends offer to take your children for the night while you and your loved once relish the marvels of Dalmatian cuisine in one of Biograd exquisite restaurants. You do not have to wake up from your dream.
This is how we do it in Biograd!

Most of Biograd beaches are awarded with “Blue flag” - the high ecological standard reward which has to be justified repeatedly each year.
