The Croatian island of Iž, located off the northern Dalmatian coast, is the perfect destination for those seeking relaxation and paradise. Situated in the UNESCO biosphere reserve of the Kornati archipelago, Iž is a small island, stretching 12 kilometers from north to south and 6 kilometers from east to west. Its slight hills and moderately high cliffs, covered with typical Mediterranean vegetation such as evergreen oak, cypresses, and pines, are home to olive groves and surrounded by four smaller islets.
The crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea surrounding Iž are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, and fishing. The island boasts many hidden coves, bays, and beaches, some only accessible by sea. One of the most beautiful spots to visit is the long and wide sandy beach of Šahulima, with views of the distant Kornati and Prvić Islands.
The peaceful, private, and beautiful scenery of Iž make it an ideal escape from modern civilization. Every corner of this small Croatian island is filled with colorful stories from its past, from battles and conquests to illicit seafarers and corsairs, to exquisite villas, estates, and monasteries today.
Iž also has a few charming towns that combine traditional Dalmatian architecture with modern amenities such as small restaurants, cafes, and wineries. In addition, the island offers a variety of outdoor activities, including the opportunity to explore hidden beaches and coves, or to rent a bike or boat and embark on an exciting adventure. It is an ideal place for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, where you can still find moments of complete calm, pleasant darkness, total seclusion, and splendid views.
