As one of the best maintained holiday places in Croatia, Jezera, positioned in the Southeast of the island, is a symbol of the highest beauty of what Dalmatia and the Mediterranean has to offer. A place of fishermen and sailors that boasts crystal clear waters, authentic customs, traditional cobbled streets and a rich history dating back to ancient times. For five years in a row, Jezera achieved the Blue Flower Award presented by the Croatian National Tourist Board, which is the most prestigious prize for beauty and environment maintenance. This firmly significantly positions Jezera on the map of Croatian tourism.
From the beautiful bays, where the scent of the sea blends with the aroma of pine, lavender, rosemary and olives, the tourist boats regularly set off to Kornati and Slapovimat. During the summer months Jezera attracts numerous guests who enjoy not only swimming and sunbathing, but equally those who love to experience various events and celebrations. Mentionable events include “Jezera Days” in July and August, including evening folk groups, fishing festivals, dessert-tasting and drinks made of figs, inspiring poetry readings and competitions of the ancient arts and sports. In late September Jezera becomes the venue of an international Big Game Fishing tournament.
Tourism contributes to the delicious foods and richness in fresh fish. If you would like to taste some of the traditional Jezera dishes on the menu, then look out for these delicacies: “prispalji”, dried octopus with eggs, “brudet od šušenih moli” local fish stew, and “zelenjak”…. With award-winning Jezera ACI marina, the Jezera Village Holiday Resort is a major tourism factor in Jezera, but also on the entire island of Murter. With its services and quality, it has transformed this small fishing village into a true Mediterranean paradise for tourists.
