Zlarin Island Did you know that Zlarin has about 2700 hours of sun per year and that it is one of the sunniest islands on the Adriatic? Tourists are attracted to this small island in the Šibenik archipelago not only for the sun and crystal clear sea, but also by the indescribable peace the island offers along with the feeling as if time has stopped. Despite the fact that there are 16 kilometers of roads and paths on the island, cars are not permitted so Zlarin is the ideal place to rest and relax with long walks or bicycle rides. The island is also a favorite destination for sailors, but also coral aficionados since it is famous far and wide for its six century long tradition of coral harvesting. One of the greatest Croatian poets in the 20th century, Vesna Parun, was born on Zlarin, and Ante (Anthony) Maglica, founder of the American Mag Instruments Inc. company, famous for its Maglite flashlight, also comes from the island. He has never forgotten his roots, loves to return to the island, and upon buying land on the island, he has become the owner of 12 percent of its territory.
