Jadrija is a popular seaside resort located on a man made peninsula at the entrance of the Saint Anthony channel leading to Šibenik, Croatia. The only road used to get there is the L65036.
Jadrija was logged into the registry of protected Croatian cultural heritage architectural sites.
It got its name from the island of Saint Andreas (Sveti Andrija) that was connected in 1922 to the mainland by man and an official seaside resort for the town of Šibenik was founded. At the end of the peninsula a lighthouse of St. Andrea was built in 1871 by Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The lighthouse stands opposite to the fortress of St. Nicholas Fortress at the other side of the Saint Anthony channel built during 1535-1550.
Officially a part of Šibenik, Jadrija is one of the best places in Croatia to wind surf. Many locals have their summerhouses here.
