The long stretched peninsula of Ždrijac Beach creates an awesome kitesurf beach in Nin Croatia. The peninsula is about 800 meters long. On one side there is the lagoon of Nin and on the other side the Mediterranean sea. Both sides offer clear blue flat and shallow water. These conditions make the spot great for learning the sport of kitesurfing. Don’t worry if there is no wind, the spot is awesome for stand up paddling as well. Paddle along the Adriatic coast with beautiful white sanded beaches and green scenery backgrounds. There is a kiteschool located on the beach where you can get your lessons and or hire a SUP board. It seems that there is no reason not to visit this place if you want to travel active!
