The houses and beach west of the harbor
Zablaće is a settlement south of Šibenik in quite a distance from the Adriatic main road,
next to Solaris Resort, facing Island Zlarin on the seaside. Zablaće, with its name referring to a place over the swamp, has been an inhabited place for a long time. One of the five medieval salt works on the Croatian Adriatic worked right here. The salt works is mentioned in written sources in 1432 for the first time, salt production ended on this location in the mid-18th century. In 2010, building on the swampy makings of Zablaće, French entrepreneur Bernard Lamy announced his plans to revitalize the place by opening channels between the lakes - this way the area between Saint Nicholas Fortress and Solaris Resort would be turned into a "small Venice".
What pertains to local beaches, Zablaće has both gravel ones (west of the harbor) and concrete terraces with concrete step entrances to water (east of the harbor, at the camp). Various are the beaches of the neighboring Solaris Resort - its Bijela plaža (beach) is a blue flag beach.
