"Dugi otok - embraced by the nature"
"Croatia’s best-kept secret – place of true peace and tranquility"
Dugi otok is one of Croatia's best-kept secrets – place of true peace and tranquility. Named for its characteristic shape, Dugi otok (Long Island) is 45 kilometers long and just 5 kilometers wide. An island of hidden coves, sheer cliffs, ancient ruins and gorgeous white pebble beaches is the perfect destination for travelers seeking unfogettable scenary and historical sites. This is what Dugi otok makes ideal place for multisport event - middle distance triathlon.
Triathlon Long Island starts at Saharun bay – island's most well known beach. A sandy bottom and shallow waters make this calm cove very popular. Athletes then head south on 90 km long bike ride towards National Park Telašćica. This one loop bike course across the whole island leaves no place for indifferences. Bike course finishes near Telašćica – one of the safest, most beautiful and biggest natural bays on the Adriatic. 21 km long run course through this National Park is made of breathtaking views. From here you will see a stunning panorama – steep cliffs that fall vertically into the sea from a height of 200 meters called Stine. You will also enjoy some spectacular views of all the islands, sea, and mountains far north. Triathlon Long Island finishes in Sali – typical dalmatian village with a thousand year old fishing tradition and cultural heritage.
Join us on this beautiful adventure and see why you'll never forget Dugi otok.
"The intensity of the colours...the dark green pinewoods, the shimmering white pebbles, and the sea that changes hue during the day, depending on the position of the sun. It makes the Saharun beach so special"
