Jezera is a village on the island of Murter, located in a horseshoe-shaped bay. The bay and the village are surrounded by hills, which protect the place from the wind and create ideal conditions for a boat dock. The name Jezera ('lakes') comes from the fact that rainwater creates large puddles, and next to the village there used to be a swamp. The swamp was largely drained in the early 20th century due to malaria. The first written mention of Jezera is at the end of the 13th century, but the remains of an Illyrian settlement indicate that the continuity of life here is much longer. In addition to swimming and sunbathing on numerous beaches, visitors can enjoy numerous events during the summer: fishing festivals, fig dessert tastings, poetry evenings, folklore evenings and many others. Numerous excursion boats also start from the village.
