Kukljica

Kukljica is a picturesque tourist and fishing village on the island of Ugljan near Zadar and the island of Pašman, well connected to the mainland by car or ferry. With a small marina, situated in a picturesque bay, Kukljica is a modern tourist resort offering excellent accommodation in well-designed rooms and suites in private houses and in the tourist village “Zelena Punta”. Attractive sandy beaches shaded by centuries-old pine-wood, Sabuša, Kostanj and Jelenica, can be found on both sides of the island. In the cove Kostanj there is a valuable historical monument, the renewed old church of St. Jerome from the 13th century.
The genuine attraction of Kukljica is the traditional procession by boat on the Feast of Our Lady of the Snow (5th of August), when the statue of Our Lady of the Snow is taken from the votive church of Our Lady of the Snow in the Zdrelascica bay to the parish church of St. Paul dating from the 17th century.
