Several kilometers away you can find Svetojašnica puddle on the way toward the lookout point above Svetojanj bay which provied a stunning view of the surrounding beaches, bays, islands, Velebit mountain and its channel. The descent leads to a bay where you will leave the bikes and begin a short climb to the Svetojanj fortress. At the top of the fortress a longer break for lunch is planned.
