The Yugoslav People's Army built the Šepurina Military Zone in untouched nature between two villages, Zaton and Petrčane, near Zadar. A short time later, in the immediate vicinity, the tourist complex Punta Skala was built. The inhospitable coastline was then cultivated for both functions, the top-secret military zone, and the new showpiece of Yugoslavia’s tourism: hotel resort Punta Skala.

Today, the hotel resort has been completely reconstructed and renovated and bears the name of Falkensteiner Holiday Resort. The Šepurine military base is no longer in use by the military. In the 1990s, the Croatian Army took it over from the Yugoslav People’s Army and built an airstrip there, but soon afterwards, it abandoned the site, too. Illegal auto and motorcycle races were taking place there until recently, but the local government put an end to that by depositing construction waste on theairstrip. In summer, the locals enjoy the somewhat hidden and peaceful beach Šepurine.

The zoning plan of the City of Nin has envisaged a tourist zone here. However, long-time court disputes over land ownership have so far prevented any form of conversion.
