One of the most famous attractions in Rogoznica is lake Zmajevo Oko. This unique hydro-phenomenon on the eastern Adriatic coast is tied to multiple legends and fables among the Dalmatian people. The lake is on Gradina peninsula, this land separates the Bays of Soline and Koprišće. The lake is surrounded by vertical cliffs and measures 10,0000 m². Around the lake there is specific fauna and flora because of its chemical properties. The lake has been compared to the Black sea because of the thick layer of hydrogen sulfide at the bottom. Over time the lake has been said to “boil” and then everything in it dies spurring its many legends. The legend says that Rogoznica was kept from the enemy by a dragon. Each year the people would give the dragon a beautiful girl until Aristotle came along and killed the dragon. The dragon dug his eyes out while dying and one landed under his foot and created a crater in the land. The sea poured in and filled the crater creating a lake known as Dragon Eye’s Lake. During your sailboat charter in Rogoznica, you will see many couples swimming in the lake. It is said that if a couple swim in the lake together they will share eternal love and be faithful to one another until the end of their lives.
Located in the center of the Croatian coastal region, Rogoznica’s climate is one of its most attractive features. With as many as 2,600 hours of sun per year and minimal rain compared to its neighbors, Rogoznica is perfect for a summer vacation. The warmer months are July to August when the temperature is between 25 °C and 35 °C (77 °F - 95 °F) and the sea temperature reaches up to 28 °C (83 °F). Rain is rare. There is however, two things to keep in mind on your sailboat charter in Rogoznica, the Bura and Jugo winds. The northeasterly wind, Bura, blows in gusts and can reach incredible speeds, it has also at times created an opaque fog. This is not the ideal weather to sail in as the winds change direction unexpectedly, create high waves and low visibility making it difficult to stay course. The Jugo is a southeasterly wind that goes from the sea to land. It brings heavy weather, big waves, rain and clouds. There is one place near Rogoznica where these two winds meet, Cape Planka. This place is responsible for the minimum rainfall during the summer months. Enjoy your summer sailing in Rogoznica free of rain and cautious of strong winds.
