Wonderful beaches and bays await bathers in Biograd. Especially the gently sloping pebble beach Drazice and the adjacent sandy beach Soline are very popular with families with children. While active holidaymakers can pursue numerous sports on the beaches of Biograd, there are varied leisure activities, animation programmes and of course the large water slide on Drazica Beach for hours of fun on the beach. Boredom is guaranteed not to arise on your beach days.
While during the day life mainly takes place on the beach and the harbour promenade of Biograd, in the evening the hustle and bustle shifts to the promenade on the edge of the old town. Numerous restaurants, taverns invite you to enjoy the specialties of Dalmatian cuisine. Freshly caught fish, seafood or hearty meat dishes from the grill are recommended as the main course.
You can end the evening with a romantic stroll along the bank and beach promenade or through the small, winding streets of the old town.

In addition to the many different events with live music during the Biograd cultural summer, bars, clubs and taverns are particularly attractive.
