Some say it's the nicest beach on the Adriatic, given the fine white sands and lovely scenery in the backdrop. Being located in a quet, secluded gulf near Veli rat village at the Northern side of Dugi otok, it can be often best place for undisrupted swimming when rest of the island is exposed to winds and wild waves. Therefore, it will also provide natural shelter for boats and yachts which will anchor a little further from the beach, some time after rocky bottom will begin.

Given its natural properties, the place is popular with all kinds of visitors but it seems families with little kids are dominating. A few bars sell cold drink and let play music, sometimes loud. A tourist train from Bo?ava will unload their hotel guests, adding more people to the place. There is some shadow in near forest, but not directly by the water. If you want to lay on the sand and get some shelter from sun, you can rent parasols which are typical product of globalization... on every sand beach of the world the same I guess.
In the main season you'll have to pay for the parking as well if you come by car. Take a 10 minutes walk along the coast and you'll eventually reach another shadeless beach with lovely pebbles on a strip of land connecting it with tiny pocket islet.
