According to the legend, Ada Bojana appeared on a place, where in the 17th or 18th century a ship called Merito wrecked during a storm. For years the rivers flow washed out the place of the shipwreck slowly making a sandbank and eventually an island. After many years the river divided the island into two parts.
Ada Bojana is famous for its nudist sandy beach which was opened in 1973. Tourists can stay in a camping, bungalows and also in wooden houses along the river bank.
