Kukljica is a picturesque tourist and fishing village on the island of Ugljan near Zadar and the island of Pasman, well connected to the mainland by car ferry. With a small marina, situated in a picturesque bay, Kukljica is the most developed seaside resort on the island of Ugljan. Beautiful landscapes with thick pine forests, lovely beaches, crystal clear sea are just a part of its attractions.
Attractive sandy beaches shaded by centuries-old pines: Sabusa, Kostanj and Jelenica (FKK), can be found on both sides of the island.
SabusaSabusa beach is situated on the west coast of the island, which looks on Dugi otok (Long island), about 15 minutes of walk from Kukljica The coast of the beach is arranged while the sea bottom is sandy. The water is shallow and suitable for small children and various water games. The beach has become very popular because of the picnic party organized every year in June by the local radio-station (Radio 057). It is also known by its healing mud.
10 minutes walking to the north of Sabusa, there is a Small Sabusa beach. It is a secluded sandy beach suitable for those who want a quiet place for swimming and sunbathing (clothing is optional).
South of Sabusa there is Jelenica naturist / nudist beach with sandy sea bottom and surrounded by olive trees and Mediterranean macchia. Further to the south, before the south point Ugljan's, there is a small nudist islet of Karantunic, which is also a favorite scuba diving spot.
Sabusa and Jelenica, as already mentioned, can be reached by foot from Kukljica, but even better solution is to rent a small motor boat in Kukljica and drive yourself there going around the island.
