Ninska Laguna (Nin's Lagoon)
is the oldest Croatian royal town and a cradle of the croatian
culture. Well preserved cultural monuments, especiallly
old-croatian chapel from 9th and 12th century are unique
in Croatia and in the broader Mediterranean area. It is
situated in the shallow lagoon just 18 km north of Zadar,
far from traffic and industrial zones. As the sea is shallow
and cut into the land, the temperature of the sea is 2-3
degrees higher than in the open sea, which creates higher
salinity and aerosol.
Nin is the destination of many tourists. Many also stay
in the near Holiday Village Zaton and visit Nin for it's
beaches and cultural monuments.
The whole area around Nin is an osais of shallow and long
sandy beaches. Beaches are located in a large, from winds
protected bay with a magnificent view on mountains. The
water is always clean and warm.
The most known is Ninska laguna beach (Nin's Lagoon).
It is a long sandy beach ideal for families with children
and elderly people. Recently Ninska laguna has been put
on the top of the list of the most beautiful Dalmatian sandy
beaches by German auto club ADAC. The beach is also known
for areas with medicinal mud (peloid and liman).
Medicinal mud serves for treatment since the Roman times.
The action of the medicinal peloid can be seen through the
physical, mechanical and chemical effects, especially for
different rheumatic diseases, and particularly for different
spine deformations (sciatica, lumbago, pyriarthritis …)
and for the problem of infertility of women as well as for
different skin diseases. The therapy takes place in the
pleasant natural environment, and it includes bathing and
swimming in the warm sea after the treatment with the medicinal
mud which is under the supervision of the medicinal stuff.
