We went there by tourist boat trip. Place itself is beautiful and must see, but tourists will ruin the place. Sad but true. If you can, rent a boat and go with it, spend a few here. Don't take tourist boat trip, unless absolutely necessary!

The Bay is overrated in my opinion. The Water is murky especially after you have 100 people in the water. The minute we arrived a tourist boat came with approx. 100 people so i did like the bay. The walk from Jablanac to the bay...More

Get off the beaten Croatian path. Take a drive along the coast, fall into a beautiful little town (emphasis in little), have lunch, and cruise the path to the Fjord. Just awesome. Kids jumped from rocks. We swam among a sunken WW2 boat. Waved at...More

What an absolutely beautiful place! We went here for the afternoon and were amazed! The water is beautiful and there are not many people there because it's not touristy at all. It's a small hike there and about 20 kunas entry but totally worth it!!...More

I had read on the internet about this bay. We stayed in Zadar and decided to give it a try. Though the bay is about 123km away from Zadar, it was well worth the drive (we brought our own car). The road curved along the...More

Not much going on in Stinica and Jablanac but spending the day at this cove is worth it. Finish the day with dinner at the Lux restaurant in town. Nothing fancy but relaxing and good grilled fresh fish.

Beautiful secret spot. Amazing views. Worth to stay for a day/half a day. Good snorkeling place, espacially the shipwreck.

This hidden sea cove is well worth a visit. We had a beautiful day here, just chilling n snorkelling. Checked out the German shipwreck, walked a bit and had nice dinner in the village near buy.

It was a secret spot of the Austrian Aristocracy and I understand why. You'll need to walk under an heavy sun for 30min by foot on an easy way. But then, when you arrive in the "fjord" : wow! And there is a sunk German...More

We could spend almost a day in this bay with my children. The water is so clear and the shipwreck is also very interesting for snorkeling. We could come from the other side (not from Jablanac) in a real sporty track beetwen the mountains. It...More
