Just off shore from the mainland – just a 20m wide sea canal crossed with a long drawbridge from it, Murter island is also is prime position for the scattering of small and pretty islands that are part of the Kornati National Park. The beaches are more rocky than sandy, but Slanica beach is a fine exception, it's one of the most popular beaches for beach volleyball players and other people who value sand and clear, shallow waters. But it's not the beach bums Murter attracts, it is most popular with sailors and people learning how to sail. On shore there's a nautical academy (in Jezera), and off shore is a reef rising out of the water in places to form islands and atolls.
