Telascica Nature Park is located on the island Dugi Otok in the Adriatic Sea, perfectly reachable as a day trip from Zadar (Croatia). I especially loved the bay of Telascica, the cliffs and the salt lake. We walked along the edge of the cliffs reaching a height of 160 meter above sea level and swam in Lake Mir where we had fun observing the shrimps and mullet species that live in the water.
