Soon after you enter the Park area by car or bicycle from Sali direction, there's a small side road connecting towards the view point, or vidikovac. I would recommend you to go there if you can: the views over the southern tip of Dugi otok are stunning, and you're staying high upon the sea, with cliffs below falling more than 100 meters deep. This place is a little of the main paths because all the crowds gravitate towards the other sections of cliffs near Mir lake which is explained in another tip.
It's quiet spot here, the views end into nothingness beyond horizon, or end in mythic Velebit range, while towards the South you'll be seeing individual islands of Kornati, and little closer all the variations of Dugi otok's landscapes, from minimal patches of some agriculture towards rough shapes of bare land, or gentle contoures of nearby bare peaks struggling with winds and sun, forest covered slopes and .... sheltered waters of the gulfs where boats found perfect haven.
