Modrave is one of the last untouched areas of our coastline. Hopefully, it will stay that way as it should be protected from the devastation that destroyed most of our coastline. This beautiful stretch starts after Drage and continues to Prosika just before Pirovac, central Adriatic. Vransko lake is behind it (in the old days it would be “in front” as coastline was very scarcely populated) and Murter archipelago in front. The area is known for thousands of olive trees and it’s dry stone walls. Lately, the bike routes have been established and it makes a great cycling area.
It is also a great area if looking for some nice secluded beaches or coves to anchor. Nowhere near as crowded as popular destinations. But, in the winter time, these bike routes and narrow trails by the sea, make a perfect walking area! We were rewarded with one amazing sunset last month when we decided to explore the Stani bay.
Stani got it’s name from cottages that used to be here. Probably just for olive oil pickers from Murter and Betina that are owners of most of these lands. Several ruins still remain.
Just one great spot for walking and enjoying a very quiet shore in the winter.
