I have seen most of the most beautiful panoramas in Dalmatia: from Srdj mountain overlooking Dubrovnik to mount Hum on Hvar. Maybe Biokovo is THE ONE but so far, panorama over Vransko lake offers the most beautiful views in Dalmatia! Over 200 islands in front of you (probably close to 300…): Kornati National Park, Pašman channel, Dugi otok and Žut, majestic Murter archipelago, the islands of Šibenik… In the very calm and clear, bura days, the islands of Vis and Hvar can be seen as well. Some claim that they have seen the Italian coast but I never did…
The very top of the hill has been nicely cleared and organized for even larger groups. A small, traditional house, toilets and a well have been erected near the chapel that commemorates the post WW2 victims. There are nicely done info boards with lots of information on the entire area of the lake. Nearby, the observatory has been erected with binoculars for viewing birds and the islands.
There is a half hour (to 40 min) walk from the base of the hill along the dirt road. Although you can use the car, the climb is well worth the effort! The entire area is simply an oasis of traditional life and well managed natural resources. Pure pleasure!
But, more than anything, the magic of the sunset is what attracts the most!
