Sali

Dugi Otok is the biggest island of Zadar's archipelago, 50km long and about 5km wide. It is quite distant from the coast - one hour and a half by ferry from Zadar (3 or 4 lines daily in the summer) and it remains out of usual tourist routes. That makes Dugi Otok an quiet destination, ideal for tourists that will appreciate the peace and the natural beauties that don't miss on island.
The central position in Adriatic Sea (more distant than Ugljan and Pasman islands) make a weather in Dugi Otok even more better and "Mediterranean" than elsewhere in Dalmatia.
