Island Molat  & Zapuntel Town

CAUTION: Any suggested itinerary or route and information provided are not substitute for pilot books and marine charts. We refuse to accept any responsibility for any loss or damage caused by holding on suggested routes or information provided.

Molat - The Molat island is situated in the northern part of Zadar's archipelago. It is southeast of the island of Ist, separated from it by the Zapuntel strait; area 22.7 sq km; population 222. The relief is characterized by two limestone ridges (the highest peak Knizak, 142 m), separated from each other by the Zapuntel-Brgulje valley (Zapuntel Field); the Bay of Brgulje is its south-eastern submerged part. A smaller transversal valley (Molat Field) stretches in the south-eastern part of the island.

Molat is mostly under young forests and underbrush. Its mostly low north-eastern coast is indented with numerous coves (the largest cove is Jazi). The south-western coast is largely steep , overlooking the sea, and is less indented. Chief occupations are farming, livestock breeding (sheep), fishing and tourism. The villages of Molat, Zapuntel and Brgulje are situated in the interior of the island; coastal hamlets developed around their piers. The peace, silence, secret beaches and numerous hidden bays for temporary anchorage and necessary minimum of infrastructures (4 restaurants, 3 shops) guarantees an holiday far away from usual tourism.

Note 1: In 1151 the island became the property of the Zadar-based Benedictine monastery of St. Krsevan; from 1409 it was under the power of Venice, which leased it to several families from Zadar.

Note 2: During the Italian occupation in the period 1941-1943 Molat was a concentration camp.
