bycicling & walking
Sucuraj offers great opportunity for bykers and pedestrians, because of its car-free natural environment. Visitors who come to Sucuraj usually park their cars and do not have a need to use it anymore (except for excursions to the island). Most of the riding & walking paths are near the sea, or trough olive groves and pine tree forests.
For the bykers in better shape we reccommend tour to auto-camp "Mlaska" 3.5km from Sucuraj.
Two mountain bykes are available for rent at our house.
