Cliff Blue trail leads you to the most beautiful parts of this Island where you’ll pause on each kilometer to breathe in this beauty, cultural and historical heritage.

The trail will take you through centuries-old olive gardens that still witness one of the most important activities of local population. Besides olive trees, you’ll see scattered monuments, churches and ruins, and will visit numerous bays that will enchant you with incredible purity of the sea.

Telašćica Nature Park offers more than any other park; three phenomena- Telašćica lagoon, cliffs of Dugi Otok and Lake Mir known as salt lake. Telašćica bay, as one of the safest, the most beautiful and the largest natural ports in the Adriatic is an attractive anchorage for numerous sailors.

The so called Stene are the most famous sea cliffs on the island and at some parts they are taller than 160 meters, while they fall down deeper than 90 meters bellow the sea surface. Trail itself runs across those cliffs so in this particular place caution is needed.

Skrača is another locality, phenomenon of our island. Skrača are a specific stone figures in form of little men or dwarfs, which were created spontaneously by passengers that were passing by. Now there are over thousand figures.

The Trail leads to the lake Mir, one of the rare salt lakes in Europe. Through numerous underground cracks lake is filled with salt water from the sea and in the summer the lake temperature reaches even 33 Celsius degrees.
