A basic rule in Croatia, do not hesitate to leave the beaten track to discover islands a little more remote and less frequented than those mentioned in your tourist guide. Murter is no exception to the rule. If it owes its success among other things to the fact that it is connected to the mainland by a bridge not far from Pirovac, Murter is not the most exciting island in Croatia.
Quite well known to campers in the region, you will find two or three very well-equipped campsites on Murter with paid beaches but worth the detour: the perfect beach with sand in the water to be able to play rackets or ball and rocks on the edge so as not to have this horrible feeling of sand between the toes…
The few villages on the island: Betina, Tisno and Murter for the most important have, like each Dalmatian village, their share of chapels, Roman ruins and old stone houses. You will find a few restaurants on Betina with intact seaside charm (very good the Trabakul with the sea penetrating its terrace!), but apart from that there is nothing to whip a Dalmatian alley cat.
Morality: even if they are more difficult to access (few boats from Vodice), more distant and smaller, favor the small surrounding islands. Between small fishing villages like on Zirje, baroque buildings of Zlarin and the island of Prvic famous for having been the homeland of the author of the first independent Croatian dictionary Faust Vrancic in 1595, you have there enough to spend a few days of happiness in a setting that will think outside the box.
