Murter is the largest settlement on the island of the same name. The remains of the ancient settlement of Colentum on the hill Gradina testify to the long history of this place. The first mention of Murter is in the middle of the 13th century under the name Villa Magna, meaning large village. Later, the place was called Srimač, and since the beginning of the 18th century, it has had its current name. Murter has as many as 2700 hours of sunshine a year. The coast is very indented, and the beaches in the village are widely known for their beauty and clear sea. There are also many hidden coves, which are most easily reached by boat. At a distance of ten nautical miles from Murter is the Kornati National Park. Kornati National Park consists of a number of islands and the marine ecosystem around them, which are protected due to cultural and natural features. During the summer, numerous events are held with the aim of introducing visitors to traditional cuisine and the former way of life on the island.

The remains of the ancient settlement of Colentum are some of the sights to behold while here,it served a good spot to take pictures for memories. We went for boat riding towards the coves which are still well kept. I attended an event where we, visitors were being introduced to the traditional cuisines on the Island, the locals were friendly.
What i loved most about this Island is the long hours of sunshine, in the morning and evening the magnificent rays of the sun dazzle in the clear. It is an awesome experience to watch the colour due to the rays of the sun. The marine ecosystem is a must see when one tours this Island.
very good!!!
I got to learn about the rich history behind the island and also the cultural heritage of the locals. I visited the place during the summer holidays and got to interact with the kind and friendly locals and also had a taste of their traditional cuisines, very tasty. I made new friends here.
Thanks to the amazing tour guide assigned to us who made our boat ride experience to the hidden coves exciting.The greenery there amplified the beauty of the place, we camped near the shore and the breeze was calming. Our privacy was guaranteed because of its location.
The long hours of sunshine was spectacular which keeps the activities running both during the day and the evening. We had a romantic dinner in one of the restaurants and the food was very tasty and delicious. It's a must visit place for me.
I came here to unwind after a long working period. I loved this place. It was a quiet and serene environment that was conducive to me. The food was delicious and the people very friendly.
