Lighthouse Veli Rat/ Dugi otok
The lighthouse was built in 1849 on the southwestern cape of the island of Dugi otok, 35 km west of the city of Zadar.
The lighthouse, surrounded by pine trees, beautiful bays and pebble beaches, is considered one of the most beautiful on the Adriatic. Veli Rat offers an unforgettable experience - a splendid view from the 40 m high lighthouse tower.
There are two wonderful pebble beaches suitable for small children in the vicinity of the lighthouse. If you go for a walk, you will pass by several charming bays.
The thick lighthouse walls, that according to legend contain thousands of egg-whites to make them more resistant to wind and sea, protect you from the blazing sun in the summer months. There is an old church under a century-old pine tree in the large paved yard.
