While we were doing some research before we came to Dugi otok, we read about a camp in Luka from internet. For our surprise when asking locals, there were no camp here at all, and hearing that question, they seemed to be surprised as well.
Nevertheless, we managed to return to Luka. We had a lunch at the terrace of its Socialist era hotel where we were only people sitting. Looked inside the inner part, the kitchen looked devastated and so it was the dining part where there were no tables, just one porch for the staff whom seemed to have lunch break the moment we ordered our menu. High celiling, pastel painted walls inside, the articulation of the window and door - a museum like feeling, which isn't bad in those fast-come-and-go days. Waitress was young, but when she put on that white uniform she appeared more stern and for 10 years older.

Village is all quiet with little traffic and few of remaining locals seemed to be closely connected, sitting on a main open terrace in town next to once prominent building now falling appart in centre of Luka, by small gulf where few boats were tight. A group of Czech retired tourists were promenading along the coast and they seemed to be staying in that hotel.
A few restaruants there were in Luka, and beaches were not that splendind and wild, but the water looked clean. Next to main terrace, there's a mini shop and a little further, a small church similar ot other ones on the island. This is really quiet place to be and with its social properties quite an interesting one.
