Dugi Otok – island of distinctiveness and contrast

Dugi Otok is the seventh largest island of the Adriatic Sea, and is located on the Dalmatian coast, west of Zadar. To be more precise, it is 10 km from the coast, in relation to Zadar which is the nearest large town on the mainland. It is the largest island amongst the islands of northern Dalmatia (114 km2), from where it also derives it name (Dugi Otok means “Long Island” in English): it is 45 kilometres long, between one and four kilometres wide; whilst its highest peak, Vela Straža, is 338 metres high.

The coastline facing the open sea is quite diverse: the area which is located in the protected nature park of Telašćica is mostly steep and here beautiful cliffs dominate, whilst the southeast side offers an abundance of peaceful coves, such as the sandy beach of Sakarun. Due to this most of the settlements are also in fact situated on the eastern side, including Sali (the largest town), Božava, Dragove, Soline, Brbinj, Luka, Polje, Verona, Savar, Veli Rat, Zaglav, Žman…

Due to the proximity of many nature parks and their specific qualities, the northwest part of Dugi Otok was recently recognised as being one of the most interesting areas of Zadar County, and was also declared “a significant Croatian landscape”. Dugi Otok is located near the famous and picturesque natural settings of the Kornati National Park. More than 1,500 hectares of islands covered in vineyards, orchards and agricultural land, about 752 hectares of pastures and about 300 hectares of forested land. The vegetation is more distinct in the northern and central parts of the island.

The island has a population of only 2,900 inhabitants. The main road connects all the places on the island and offers a beautiful view of the surrounding islands. It is well connected to the mainland by ferries and catamarans. The island has several hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, tourist offices, post offices, health clinic, harbour office, customs control points and other service amenities.

In 2012, 1.3 million tourists visited Zadar County (Dugi Otok is located in Zadar County), which is a growth of 7% compared to 2011.
