On the southern side between the bay and the sea is Telascica's highlight: Mir Lake. Spanning 23 hectares and only about 10 metres deep, the brackish water is fed by the sea whcih seeps in through underground cracks. Bathing in the water is a delight, not least because the temperature is always at least 6 degrees warmer than the surrounding sea. Spa temperature!
The land portion of Telascica spans 26.5km and is marked by pine trees, olive groves and fig trees. On the side of the island facing the open sea are high cliffs reaching a height of 166 metres.
Telascica is not accessible by road or ferry. The only way to reach Telascica is by boat, either your own or via an excursion from Zadar. You can also rent a boat in Sali, the main town in Dugi Otok and the town closest to Telascica.
