Whenever we visit this place, there is something special in the air... I do enjoy swimming in the open sea, walking under pine trees or just lying on the rocks... but the mosquitos were too aggressive this time, so take the repellent with you ;-)

Beaches with natural shade and perfect pine scent are rare so we enjoyed the beach at Veli Rat. You should prepare appropriate beach footwear because its rocky but well worth the effort and time driving from Sali. The lighthouse keeper sells vegetables and the tomatos...More

The lighthouse is nice and remind us the times when ships were the best way for long-distance routes. Next to the lighthouse is nice beach.

Great place to see sunset. Very quite and romantic place. Lighthouse it's very nice, there is a little market to buy vegetables near it.

Just thought it would be worth clarifying that you can go up to the top of the lighthouse for 20KN per person. Kids are free. Good view from the top, but not the easiest climb. Also need to be fairly nimble to get up the...More
