(Zaton) naturist beach
(sent on Jul 7th, 2003)
by: M. from Croatia
of the beach: Sabunike
Location of the beach: Sabunike, near Zadar,
I know the beach since I was a kid. And it's been
always the same (for at least 15-20 years).
The beach is quiet and sandy, not particularly attractive.
But not bad either. Perhaps the sand might remind
someone of Ireland or NW France. But the sea is
not the ocean, of course.
It is a kind of a beach you can rarely find in Croatia
(almost the entire Croatian coast is rugged, rocky,
with cliffs or strown with pebbles ...).
The beach is located very close to the popular and
overcrowded tourist resort of Zaton, 15 km NW of
Zadar and 3 km W of Nin. It is about 10 minutes
walk from the tourist resort.
Sabunike is the name that originates from sand somehow
(sabun, sabbia = sand). The beach has no facilities
whatsoever. It is small but never overcrowded, almost
The vicinity of Zaton makes it attractive for those
who want to experience nudism for just a brief moment
or for the first time, as well as for those who
used to come there before or those who stop by travelling
The area is rich in history and archeological findings
dating pre-Roman and medieval centuries (ancient
Aenona). However no one would guess or find anything
intriguing in particular related to the subject,
except maybe in Zadar. The past is waiting for better
days to come.
