The route begins in the outskirts of Stara Novalja, on the left, before the ferry. Don’t forget to close the gate, please. Here begins the 10,5 kilometres long adventure. You will ride along a 500 metre severe gradient and continue with a macadamized road. By turning left you could get to a beautiful beach.
In the northwestern part of the island is Stone pit. This area is known for the remains of an ancient aqueduct, “rich” waters, amphoras, diving tourism, sandy beaches, olive groves, and for its culinary specialties.
If you decide to ”conquer” this route you will experience many descents and 5 kilometres later the route is not wavy any more. Suddenly, you will be alone and surrounded by rocks and bushes only. At 6,8th kilometre you will reach the first stone-pit. At 7,4th kilometre, on your left side there is a watering-place for sheep. Here you can have some rest or continue to another stone-pit a 1,4 kilometre later. Having descended to the centre of the stone-pit, you are at the end of a 10,5 kilometre long route. Some 200 metres away there is a road from Žigljen to Novalja. If you turn left to Žigljen some 2 kilometres on the right side, there is the UFO site.At the end of this route, if you turn right, you will find yourself driving along a beautiful descent. Having driven the next 1350 metres and turned left, you will reach Caska.A kilometre more, a walk along the stoney path will take you to the well-known beach – Zrće. It abounds in various facilities: fast-food restaurants, coffee bars, beach club Calypso, Internet cafe (during summer season only).
