Sea Gate offers some nice photo opportunities - interesting carvings in the stone, with some pretty flowers growing out of the rocks to the side. You can take pictures from street level or from the stairs/street up above. Easy place to visit while touring the city and a must for anyone looking to soak up the history of Zadar.

A nice piece of history. One of the historic gates in the wall surrounding most of the old city. Beautiful details

The gate is not that far from the central part of Old town as well as there are a number of other sites that can be visited at the same time.

Can get a little busy and crowded on the weekends, but worth seeing as it adds a dash of history to your trip.

Not quite as impressive as the land gate but a worthwhile experience to your overall understanding of the historical roots of Zadar

It's a gate - not much else to say about it other than part of a beautiful well preserved city of historical interest

A probable entrance point if you're entering the city from the pedestrian bridge across the marina. An impressive architectural achievement in the context of its time, slightly less impressive than the Land Gate (Zadar main gate). Only worth making a detour for if you're a history or architecture fan.

Our family visited Zadar in July 2016. We parked on the main street and by default walked through the Sea Gate. It's just another gate (I'm sure there's some interesting history here) but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it.

It's part of the old city wall of Zadar, and from the beatiful part of the town. DOn't go to the new parts of the town, they look like they never get out of the war yet ....
