VIDEO: Drone Footage Shows Beautiful Island Ugljan, A Cycling Paradise
August 4, 2020 – Get a bird’s eye view of Zadar’s closest island neighbour with this new footage from holidaying cyclists
Even in the height of summer, Croatia can offer total escape. The crowds and city streets have been all but forgotten by Andrej Šimunaj and his friends, who are currently enjoying a cycling holiday on island Ugljan. A new video they shot using a drone offers an incredible perspective of the peace, tranquillity and beauty of this little-discussed island.
The footage shows the visitors passing through peaceful pine forests as they journey to the vantage point of Venetian-built St. Michael’s Fort, high above the town of Preko and just of the edge of the Kornati National Park. From there, the cyclists roll downhill to a small cove named Prtljug, which holds the incredibly clear turquoise seas so beloved by visitors to the Croatian coast.
