Sali, Croatia - holiday information

Sali, Dugi otok, Croatia – visitor information

The municipal and the administrative centre of the island and the town with the highest population, Sali  is located on the north-eastern coast of the island. It has a  developed nautical and sports tourism. At guests disposal are general and dental clinic, a post office, a dozen restaurants, bars, taverns, a disco bar, one large and three small supermarkets, post office, ATM and other.
Sali is a place of a thousand year old tradition, confirmed by written documents from the 10th-century, and ancient olive groves surrounding the village witnessed the intensive agricultural activities held throughout the centuries. Still, over the last fifty years, tourism started to develop and you can find lodging in private rooms and apartments.
The cultural heritage of the settlement is represented by sacral objects such as the parish church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary with gorgeous wooden altar from the 17th century and the inscription written in the church of St. Roch, while in the fields scattered around the settlement you can find remains of other Christian churches. One of the most interesting events are “Saljske uzance”, a three-day festival of live music and gastronomic experience.
We conclude that because of its tourist facilities, the vicinity of the Nature Park and the National Park Kornati, Sali is the ideal place to relax. All those who want an active holiday can rent a boat in Sali, bike or scooter and experience the beauty of the place and the island, and there is a taxi service which offers rides around the island.
