Privlaka is situated on a vast, flat peninsula with sandy soil (7 km long and 4 km wide) which closes the gulf of Nin form the north-eastern side and the channel of Zadar form the south-west.
It is located 18 km from Zadar, 5.5 km from the historical and the oldest Croatian town of Nin, and only 8.5 km from the Zaton holiday village, rich in numerous sports and recreational facilities
Mostly owing to its numerous sandy beaches, today Privlaka is a tourist town. The most prominent part of the rich tourist offer of Privlaka are its beautiful sandy beaches and the shallow and warm sea, which is most convenient for family tourism.
Numerous restaurants and cafés, a konoba, as well as a market, an exchange office, etc., are but a small part of the overall tourist offer of Privlaka.
Privlaka is known for Sabunja dwellers, who have become famous for their painstaking digging of sand from the sea and building the white town of Zadar after World War II.
They used to transport sand along the entire coast in their wooden ships (trabakul, braceraandleut). Sabunja dwellers left a deep mark in the Privlaka way of life, so the Privlaka football club was named after them (Sabunjar).
Privlaka is the most important tie between the oldest Croatian royal town of Nin in the North East and the island Vir in the West.TZ Privlaka - http://www.privlaka-tz.hr/
