Took a trip to Veli Iz on the Jadrolinija ferry "Olea" and so spent a couple of hours here,while spending 2 weeks in Zadar.The village is frequented by those into yachting,there were quite a lot of visitors around,though it's well off the normal tourist trail.Easy to find shops and bars open.Good views of the desolate western side of Ugljan.

Thank James G

We were very surprised at how pretty the island was. Lots of ancient attractions to stroll amongst. Very clean and tidy and has some very good restaurants. Konoba Stara Kuzina was a standout.

I am not sure I have ever felt as peaceful as I did on Iz! It is a beautifully quiet and a perfect place to relax. There are not really beaches but we just lay our towels out on the grass and it was perfect. It doesn't seem that many tourists visit and it had a real authentic feel. Lovely... More

They have a road connection, and there is a bus connection after ferry arrives. Both settlements feature small shop and a bar, and Veli Iž has one hotel. I visited the... More
