Quiet little village in a quiet gulf, that's the first impression of Veli rat settlement which is in short distance from its more famous light house. On evening there's little of activity going on, but then again, that's the case for most of Dugi otok. Old locals bowling, some buzz from terraces of restaurants, boats and yachts getting to secure harbour, little chats among locals on benches at streets, clothes drying, the noise of TV from rooms, cats fighting on stone paved streets.
All takes little walk to cover its most interesting part built by native houses, and in their centre, there is St. Ante's church with small square.
Further, new houses rose and became appartments to rent during season and will suggest lonely winters.
Over the gulf, another quiet village, Verunić, can be seen from Veli rat. We have only visited it shortly and found its main restaurant among the most extravagant on the island serving fresh sea food which would include delicacy such as sea urchins. I admit, we only had a glass of wine there :)
