Murter(Croatia) is the biggest and the closest to the mainland of all the islands of Sibenik arhipelago.
There are 4 smaller touristic towns on the island: Betina, Murter, Jezera and Tisno.
Slanica, Kosirina, Podvrske, Cigrada are just a few of many beautiful sand beaches in the area.
The island Murter is more attractive cause of the closeness of the National parks (Kornati and Krka) and historical town Šibenik.
The larger part of the island is covered with old olive and fig trees which are the main traditional cultures of the domestic population.
It has been settled even during prehistorical times, which confirms the remains and ruins of the old Roman town Colentium.
Kornati are a separate and by many a specific group of islands.
Because of its exceptional landscape beauty, interesting geomorphology, diversity of the coastline and especially because of the rich biocoenoses of the marine ecosystem, greater part of the Kornati maritime zone has been declared a national park in 1980.
