    Mandre - Pag Island

    Small beaches of touristic settlement Mandre Pag Croatia

     

    Bike trip to Mandre village

    The start for a good bike trip could be camp Šimuni which is from the nearest village only one kilometer far away. Excursion is more of a family nature, of exploring the sea coast and to find out all of the characteristics of places and people. A short tour, which is aproximatly 25 km long, lead us on asphalt, macadam or even little beach pathways. The most suitable bike for this tour is mountainbike or a bike with rough tyre profile.

    From the camp we turn in direction to picturesque fish village Šimuni. The coast of the place is a typical fish coast, very interesting is also a short and with trees overgrowed cape, where we can find a nice beach and a lots of chances for batheing and swimming. From the village Šimuni we go further on the asphalt road and after a kilometer we turn left on macadam road, which leads us straight ahaid through shrubby landscape to the coast. In the middle of the road is a small slope, but its not so hard to defeat this slope. After this kilometer we arrive in touristic settlement Mandrice..

    Here we find many short but nice beaches, with scent of romance. Above the beach is also another touristic settlement, but it is so nice just to drive with bikes through the coast line watching the sea. Now we finaly arrive to settlement Mandre. At glance the settlement looks like a tipycal touristic place. The beaches are almost empty in the first weeks of September, only in the coastal bars and restaurants we find a few tourists. If the weather is nice this place is very suitable for quick refreshing in the sea and later maybi a short rest on the beach. The village coastal road continues with a few kilometers from settlement Mandre.
