Dusk in the Zaton Bay


Zaton is a village in southern Croatia, located on the coast of the eponymous bay, northwest of Dubrovnik. The Zaton bay is a picturesque bay, located near the city of Dubrovnik and it's divided into Veliki and Mali Zaton (big and little Zaton). You can find beaches here, woods perfect for walking, restaurants and local shops.


The Renaissance summer manors of former Dubrovnik aristocracy are historical sites which characterize Zaton bay as a Dubrovnik summer manor region. Zaton is a tourist resort on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with restaurants, watersport venues, and an uphill hiking path to the village of Podbrezje, on the way to the Mociljska stalactites' and stalagmites' Cave.


At dusk the cheery beaches and surroundings transform into a tranquil oasis. It's a perfect place for vacation, and Dubrovnik is not to far away so you can make many daily trips.

    1. Thank you for visiting. Traveling doesn't have to be far away in order to be enjoyed. Zaton is only a two-hour drive away from me for example.

    2. You're welcome!

      Indeed, it doesn't. I often (as often as i can) go out on trips...artgardens and zoo's are my favorite.

      Go abroad is somewhat a different story, i do travel but only for a few days because of my healthproblems. I don't need to go far to enjoy myself, thankfully. I live in a region where it always is beauitful.
