"the light house at Veli rat" Dugi Otok Things to Do Tip by picek
Dugi Otok Things to Do: 9 reviews and 22 photos
This is one of most frequented spots on Dugi otok on its North Western side, facing open seas. It's key building is 42 meters high light house, locally named Punta Bjanka and apparently the highest one at the Adriatic.
While from the shores below you can watch the blood colored sunsets and wild waves, there are also few good swimming spots here and there and thick pine forests covering great patches of the area. In future, there is supposed to be a camp area somewhere here, but for today, we saw few people camping wild, even families with kids, modern nomads.
The scenery here is trully beautiful. You can walk along the coast few kilometers with little other people as you go further from the light house. One can swim dressed or naked, nobody will care about that.
As further you go... you'll come across rusty left overs of once-there-was-ship and concentration of trash floating from who knows where. The sea current delivered it to Dugi otok at Veli rat where it's exposed to open seas. Later by night approaching, there are fishing boats enetering horizon and they travel further for better catch, winds are getting stronger.
The nice little white pebbles meet rocks by the water edge. I take them handful to bring them home, as when they rub between eachoter, the sound produced will always suggest warm evenings spent at that magic shore, with magic sunsets and scents.
