Another gem of the Croatian coast is Croatia’s ‘Long Island’. Dugi Otok, which in English translates as ‘Long Island’, is the seventh-largest island in the Adriatic.
Located off the Dalmatian coast, west of Zadar. It derives its name from its distinctive shape – it is 44.5 km long by 4.8 km wide, with an area of 114 square kilometres.
The western coast is tall and rugged, and many of the towns are clustered on the eastern side, including Sali, the largest, Zaglav, Žman, Luka, Savar, Brbinj, Dragove, Božava, Soline, Verunić (Verona) and Veli Rat.
Telašćica Nature Park covers the southern part of the island and is adjacent to Kornati Islands National Park.
Dugi Otok has a number of beautiful beaches and the most popular is the picturesque Sakarun beach, renowned for its crystal-clear waters and white sand.
Recently, the team at SHOOTME photo&videography visited and captured the island from the air in this stunning video below.
