On the southeastern coast of the island Ugljan in northern Dalmatia is a fishing village in a protected bay with its small marina - Kukljica. This is a perfect starting point if you wish to cruise through the nearby channel to the Natural Parks Telašcica or Kornati Islands.
The entrance of the harbor from the southeast is simple and easy to recognize by the light on the two breakwaters. In...
the northern port area the ridges C and D, places are reserved for Croatian boats. South of it is the new 100 meter long pier 'B' with mooring lines available for boats and yachts. However, many mooring lines were probably removed in the summer of 2012 because of a licensing dispute and electricity and water fuses were placed. There should not be any problems for day visitors after demurrage payment. Anyone planning an extended stay should contact the administrative office in Zadar first. To get the key for the toilets go to the information office, which is located north of the harbor in two separate buildings. Right next to those a few parking spaces are available.
Shopping in Kukljica In addition to the well-equipped supermarket, which is located south of the marina, the offer is wider in the village by addition of a butcher and a baker shop. Every morning there is a market that offers fruits, vegetables and fresh fish directly from the boats of local fishermen.
Food and Leisure in Kukljica Several restaurants and taverns that pamper their guests with Dalmatian specialties, particularly fish, crabs and shellfish from the region have settled around the harbor. Typical island olives are of course included in every imaginable way in almost every course.
The town is characterized by many historic buildings and churches and a beautiful promenade along the harbor which beckons for a relaxing stroll. In the forested bay Kostanj, north of Kukljica, you will find the ruins of a Gothic church from the 15th century. Sports are offered mainly in the tourist resort Zelena Punta in the center and around the town you may find many mountain bike and bicycle paths.
Marina oder Gemeindehafen. Ist nicht ganz klar jedenfalls billiger als Marinas aber doch teurer als Gemeindehäfen. Ort selber: ganz lieber Ort mit wunderschöner Uferpromenade rund um die Hafenbucht. Hafen ist auch für die Fischfangflotte da. Viele gute Restaurants mit vernünftiger Preis- Leistungsgestaltung. Bäcker, Gemüsemarkt, Metzger, Erste Hilfestation und 2 Supermärkte im Hafenbereich. Am Sonntag morgen wecken die Kirchenglocken- mich sehr früh, andere sind da aber schon ausgelaufen :-), wir sind halt bekennende Langschläfer :-)
