The authors elaborate geographical features of the Ugljan island, the most inhabited island of the Zadar archipelago in South Croatia. The purpose of the paper, continuing former works, is to offer groundwork for future specialized and complexe researches on regional geographical problems concerning this island. The inhabitants of the island have evaluated and exploited its physicogeographical basis since prehistory, creating in this way a specific Ugljan cultural landscape. Zadar, the city closely to the island, played a decisive role in its historiogeographical development. Owing to contemporary socioeconomic development, Ugljan is, in fact a part of specific Zadar periurban zone.
