Silba, Olib, Premuda, Ist, Škarda & Molat 

Silba, Olib, Premuda, Ist, Škarda & Molat  A group of islands northwest of Zadar

A group of islands northwest of Zadar consists of Silba, Olib, Premuda, Ist, Škarda, Molat and numerous islets creating a small archipelago which confides its destiny to the sea in the Kvarner and Lošinj triangle. Intact coves and crystal clear sea are a real paradise for yachtsmen and fishing fans. The underworld of the sea offers the richness of flora and fauna and remains of sunken ships to the braver ones.
The island of Molat created three localities in its richly indented coastline, while the other islands have just one locality. Škarda and its 16 houses have no inhabitants for the last one left the Island in the last decade of the 20th century and the island breathes with life only in the summer. Nautical paradise is too weak a word to describe this archipelago made up of dozens of islets and reefs with countless coves. You may find a car only on Molat, on the road that connects the localities while the others offer sceneries of past time. Silba is the most inhabited and can entertain you with its summer liveliness, while the peacefulness, restaurants and taverns next to the sea of the other islands offer unforgettable pleasure for which people should have thought of the expression “slow food”.
