best beaches on Pašman

July the 8th, 2024 – As we scour the country for the best beaches, we find ourselves in the Zadar archipelago. Here are the 5 best beaches on Pašman.

barotul beach

Barotul beach is located in Mrljane, just 400 meters east of Pašman town – easily reachable by a quick ferry ride from Biograd na Moru. The largest sandy beach on the island itself, this beach extends tens of meters with shallow water and soft white sand. To reach the deeper parts of the sea you’ll need to walk out over 50 meters to even get knee deep. This is therefore not only one of the best beaches on Pašman, but perfect for children, families, and non-swimmers. Barotul beach boasts plenty of natural shade from the pines, plenty of parking, restaurants, cafes, showers, and even activities like beach volleyball. One fun tip: this beach is often times referred to as “Jackie-O” beach as Aristotle Onassis took his newlywed Jackie-O here on their honeymoon.

jasenice beach

Located in the heart of Pašman town we have Jasenice beach. A beach that is partly paved with concrete and partly sandy, this beach is good for all walks of life. Here you’ll find plenty of beach activities like hand tennis and volleyball courts, and you’ll even see the older generations gather around for an old-fashioned game of bocce ball. Because the beach is located in the main town, you will find plenty of facilities at your fingertips including restaurants and cafes.

Lučina Beach

Lučina Beach is located in the bay, about 200 meters west of the Pašman town center. Reachable on foot or by car, this beach is mostly sandy, with some concrete areas. What makes this among the best beaches on Pašman is the natural shade. There’s a significant number of dense pine trees and shrubs lining the beach on its outer regions. There are also some pebbled seabeds and rocky sections towards its edges. The shore at Lučina is very shallow and in order to swim you’ll have to walk a few meters out. This beach is especially ideal for small children and non-swimmers, and even dogs are tolerated here! The beach boasts cafes, ice cream shops, and volleyball courts on its surrounding areas, as well as plenty of other facilities nearby. Parking is also easy to find.

soline beach

In the north of the island we have Soline beach, located in Ždrelac region of Pašman. Soline is a beach that has concrete outskirts and a sandy floors at the sea. This beach is also located in the city center of Ždrelac, providing plenty of entertainment and facilities for all to enjoy.


Located in the southern part of Pašman in Tkon we have Sovinje beach, famous for the campsite of the same name. Sovinje beach is also its own nudist beach just outside the small settlement of Tkon. A sandy beach, Sovinje is also a natural phenomenon to see as the sedimentation of the sand here is constant, creating breathtaking scenery for beach goers. Because the beach is located at a campsite in the largest settlement of Pašman (Tkon), there are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and shops along the waterfront. Easy to get to by ferry from Biograd, Sovinje is also popular for sailors and boat owners.
