Betina, Croatia - holiday information

Betina Murter, Croatia – visitor information

Betina is located on the north side of the island Murter and is 4 kilometers away from Murter. It is a picturesque little village that exudes authenticity and charm. It is best known for its 260 year-long shipbuilding tradition, whose most known product is Betinska gajeta. Grudgingly preserving the tradition of shipbuilding today, about one hundred families are actively engaged in the construction of wooden boats. This proud farmers settlement was founded on the eastern side of the Cape Arić, gradually spread to the bay Zadrače where a shipyard and a marina were later built. Due to its discreet charm and beauty, Betina is slowly becoming a popular tourist destination and is known today as one of the most beautiful towns on the Adriatic. Surrounded by beautiful hills and adorned with fertile fields, Betina is known for its tomato. Every summer there is an "Evening of Betina tomatoes," which is regarded as the best tomato in the world. Is it so because of the fertile land and the brackish water it is not yet known, but everyone agrees that it is special. By proudly displaying to tourists, "the fruits of their labour", along with other rich cuisine the population makes this event one of the most popular events during the summer months.
