Our 5 most favorite Murter beaches

Updated: Oct 30, 2021

How about a cycling route through olive groves to the hidden beaches? Or a walk by the sea or across a hill, through narrow, village streets, and a plunge into a crystal clear sea at the end? Or, how about spending a day on a beach close to our cozy bed&breakfast that has shade, free parking and is not crowded in the middle of summer? Below are a few beaches we visited on our bikes, and on foot, all within a 5 km distance from our house. Such nature beaches are not crowded because the access requires a little more than driving to a parking lot, paying for parking and walking a few meters to the beach. They also do not have bars or public bathrooms. Bring your hammock and enjoy Nature at its best.
