nature park telascica

Park Nature Park is located in the southeastern part of the island and on the surrounding waters, and 13 islands and islets, makes a marvelous harmony of nature on 70.5 km2.
The park Telašćica is 45 kilometers from our camp. It is characterized by three phenomena:
The Telašćica bay is one of the safest, the most beautiful and largest natural ports in the Adriatic. There are 6 islets and cliffs inside the bay, and 25 small coves on the 69 km indented coastline. It is an attractive anchorage for many boaters.
The cliffs of the island Dugi otok or locally called “Stene” rising up to 200 m over the sea, and vertically falling down 90 m into the sea. The great number of bird species nest here, as well as Peregrine Falcon and Eleanor’s Falcon.
Salt Lake “Mir” with fine curative gray silt is the residence of the endemic species of eel called “Kajman”.
The contrasts of nature are very expressed here with peaceful bays and rugged cliffs, forests of Aleppo pine on one side and Holm oak on the other side, the area of cultivated fields of vineyards and olive-trees, as well as the area of rocky meadows. The Mediterranean vegetation is represented in the park with more than 400 plant species as well as numerous rare and endemic plants that have been recorded. The underwater world is home to about 250 plants and 300 animal organisms, including the now depleted red coral and the carnivorous sponge. The park is a haven for the 14 island donkeys, which roam freely in the bay Mir.
