The islands have long been known as an oasis of peace for travellers giving them an overwhelming experience of relaxation and spiritual and physical rest. To have a magical holiday one doesn’t need a magic formula. All you have to do is spread a map and look for Croatia, the ancient Zadar and Dugi otok.
Geographically, it is an island of great diversity and contrast, and the largest island among the North Dalmatian islands. It justifies its name (long island) with a length of about 45 km and it is between 1 and 4 km wide, with the highest peak Vela Straža (338 m). The coast of the island facing the open sea is characterised by sharp contrasts: the part that is located in the Nature Park is mostly steep and dominated by beautiful cliffs, while on the southeast side of the island one can find quiet coves and the sandy beach Sakarun.
The island has 12 villages located along the island: Sali, Zaglav, Žman, Luka, Savar, Brbinj, Dragove, Božava, Soline, Verunić, Polje and Veli Rat. The road connects all villages on the island and offers magnificent views of the surrounding islands. It is well connected to the mainland by ferries and fast boats.
Fans of active vacation will find satisfaction by exploring the island across the arranged and marked hiking trails or on excursions to the Nature Park Telašćica and the National Park Kornati. During the year a variety of sporting events is been organised and available are also mountain tracks and a climbing area. Dugi otok with a number of attractive tourist sites and natural beauty offers visitors a journey through the world of tradition and modern ways of living.
