Vrgada is an island off the coast of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea. It is located halfway between Zadar and Šibenik, in the archipelago northwest of Murter and south of Biograd na moru, 2.5 nautical miles (4.6 km) from the mainland. It has area of 3.7 square kilometres (1 square mile). and population of 249. The only settlement on the island is also named Vrgada and is surrounded with pine forest. Main industries are agriculture and fishing. On northeast coast, there are several small coves.
Nature blessed Vrgada with the beauty of a lively coastline, fertile fields and a fragrant pine forest; it also adorned it with thirteen small islands that are like a strewn necklace. Those who want to see “The Mediterranean as it once was” should come here – to Vrgada where history turns its pages in slow motion. Here you are still awakened by the silence in the night, during the day one forgets the meaning of hurrying and that somewhere on the mainland cars are still rushing by, while on the beach, in the deep shade of pine trees, hundreds of crickets set the unique atmosphere of summer madness.
If you are a tourist, come, the beaches with golden sand are not a marketing trick, they are the long-lasting heritage and natural adornment of Vrgada. In Vrgada, as in times long past, tourists are still greeted on a mule.
