Located on the southeast side of the island Murter,  Jezera is a horseshoe shaped bay surrounded by hills.

Because of its position it is sheltered from  strong winds and it serves as an ideal port.

The first written records of the Jezera date back to 1298 g. although two graves of the Illyrian tribe Liburna found in Podjasenovac bay in 1938. Prove it is much older.

The name Jezera comes from the fact that the rain accumulates in the impermeable soil and creates large puddles.  Blato (eng. Mud) or Jezera has been dried because of malaria in the beginning of the 20th century, while the other water surface know as Lokva still containes the rain water.
