Poljana, Croatia - holiday information

Poljana, Ugljan, Croatia – visitor information

Poljana is a peaceful settlement and harbour in the bay of the same name in the central part of the eastern coast of the island. It is one of the oldest settlements on the island and is linked to Preko. There are many springs and wells in the settlement so it is known for its vegetable cultivation and exquisite olive oil. The gardens and exuberant Mediterranean vegetation (especially rosemary) is what makes Poljana especially beautiful along with the gravely beaches and clear sea. The cove is surrounded by a picturesque peninsula Sv. Petar with a Romanesque church of St. Peter from the 13th century from one side and rows of houses on the other. You should find accommodation in one of the mentioned houses since there are no hotels in the settlement. There is no discotheque either but you can look for entertainment in one of the local cafe bars or go to Zadar that is only 15minutes away by ferry.
