We've explored entire Croatian coast, and we can easily say that beaches in Zuljana are amongst most beautiful ones, especially in the Southern Dalmatia. The main beach located in the village port is a sandy beach, with very clean sand. The water is very shallow there, and it is perfect for small children, but beautiful pebble beaches situated in the surrounding of the village, are also suitable for children, thanks to shallow entrance and small natural pebbles.
The sea is crystal clear thanks to strong sea currents which caress these wild but also very pleasant and tame shores - this makes the sea around Zuljana ideal for snorkeling, diving and spearfishing. Surroundings are ideal for walking, hiking and biking. Excursions are organized daily to the island of Mljet, Mljet National Park and Benedictine monastery, the island of Korčula and Orebić.
