Privlaka

Privlaka is a small fishing tourist town located between island Vir in the west and Croatian oldest royal town Nin in the northeast.

HISTORY AND TRADITION OF “SABUNJARSTVO” (SAND DIGGING)
Privlaka is mentioned for the first time in 1296, and through history it was best remembered for its “sabunjari” , the people who manually dug out sand (sabun) from the sea bottom for many years during summer and winter. This sand was used to rebuild Zadar after terrible destruction in the WW2. Unfortunately, the tradition of “sabunjarstvo” is almost totally extinct.

PRIVLAKA TODAY
Privlaka today is oriented more towards tourism so on the peninsula you can find many apartments, restaurants and cafes. Main touristic attractions are Sabunika beach (one of the most beautiful sand beaches in the county), healing black mud near camp Dalmatia and a large number of cultural monuments, preceded by St. Vid’s church, Sokolar Well and parish church of Nativity of Virgin Mary.

The easiest way to get to know Privlaka is by bicycle or boat.
