Among all islands in Croatian archipelago it is Pašman that has the biggest green surface considering its total area. And it is the 12th island in Croatian archipelago in land area. It is also known to have the cleanest water in the Adriatic due to the current constantly changing.



The majority of Pašman's summits offers great panoramas, especially towards the south, on Kornati islands. Along the island's main ridge a mountain road goes, by which we can reach just below or on the peaks also by bike.
