Our Bikademy Student Roko Lukenda present us Pašman cycling, an adventure through the island Pašman and an excellent Mediterranean route through small Dalmatian towns.
I’ve been spending my summer on Pašman for a few years now. It’s an island not far from the coast of Biograd and other northern Dalmatia towns. It is enriched with fish because one of the strongest sea currents flows through the Pašman channel.
Pašman is criss-crossed with numerous bicycle paths and there is an excellent connection to Ugljan island. There are a lot of cyclists on Pašman who cross by boat from Biograd to the town of Tkon on the island of Pasman, and all the way to the town of Ugljan on the island of Ugljan, where they board the boat and sail to Zadar. The two islands thus provide an excellent Mediterranean route through small Dalmatian towns that preserve tradition.
However, I prefer discovering new routes on Pašman because there’s always another hidden trail that will take you to a fantastic view or unknown beach. Sometimes they leave you out of breath (most of the time that is), but that’s the fun part!
Also, in addition to road corridors for Pašman cycling, the island offers numerous unpaved roads that lead to the southern side of the island, which offers views of the National Park Kornati.
I cycled the southern side several times, visited small stone, eco and self-supporting houses and, of course, swam in the crystal clear and clean sea.
The places on the island are excellently connected by small roads, so a bicycle can be the main transport vehicle in Pašman during your entire stay on the island (just like it is for me).
