Village of Zdrelac is located on the northernmost part of the Island of Pasman
, not far from the strait that separated Pasman from Ugljan
, or the bridge that connects them. The strait is an important marine route for excursions to the neighboring islands and Kornati Archipelago. Village of Zdrelac formed around the Church of St. Luke, looking toward Sukosan
and it expanded to the neighboring hills and coves. That is how the weekend settlement of Gladusa close to the bridge was formed. The neighboring villages on the Island of Pasman are Banj and Dobropoljana, and Kukljica
on the Island of Ugljan.
