Telašćica Bay, which is surrounded by 13 islands and islets, as well 6 islets inside the bay itself, was proclaimed a Nature Park in Croatia in 1988.

The Nature Park is located in the south-eastern part of the island of Dugi Otok. Dugi Otok, meaning ‘Long Island’ in English, is the seventh largest island in the Adriatic Sea and is situated off the Dalmatian coast, west of Zadar.

Telašćica acquired the status of a protected area already because of its valuable flora and fauna, geological and geomorphological phenomena, versatile sea bottom life, and interesting archaeological heritage.


The protected Nature Park is home to 500 plant species, whilst the underwater world counts more than 300 plant and 300 animal species.

The area of Telašćica Nature Park has contrasting areas – from quiet and peaceful beaches down one coastline, to wild and steep cliffs on the other. There are around 25 small beaches in Telašćica Bay.


The Nature Park is home to a number of tourist attractions, including some spectacular viewpoints and interesting archaeological heritage.
