The bay of Zuljana is nestled between gentle, green hills with pine woods and rosemary bushes reaching straight to the crystal clear sea.

The deep valley is covered with vineyards and olive groves, as most of the locals are traditionally wine and olive oil makers.

 

Zuljana has a very old history. Some of the churches are dated back to the 6th century. New archaeological findings place the early settlements as far back as ancient greece.

 

In the village there are two diving clubs offering diving tuition, equipment hire and dives. 

Crystal clear sea, shipwrecks and coral reefs make diving in this area a special experience.

Equally if you like hiking, you can enjoy hours of walking in the unspoilt countryside. Walk the 490 m peak of St Ivans for its incredible views.

 

 

The local shop and market stalls sell everything you'll need, including organic fruit and vegetables, olive oil, honey and wines, all of which are locally produced.

There are three restaurants and a cafe.

In the village you will also find an ambulance, a post office where you can exchange money and a tourist office, to get more specific information, or to arrange excursions.

The early 13th century complex of Ston and Mali Ston are 20 minutes from Zuljana.

The medieval and historical town of Dubrovnik, "The pearl of the Adriatic" is an hour's drive.

On the way there you pass the Arboretum Trsteno, a 500 year old botanical garden.

The National Park on the island of Mljet is a 40 minute sail on the local boat from Zuljana and the beautiful island of Korcula is an hour away.
