Veli rat is considered one of the most beautiful lighthouses, located in a landscape of luscious Mediterranean vegetation, overlooking a white beach and the crystal clear sea on the island of Dugi otok. It is probably on account of its magnificent view from the 40 metre tall lighthouse tower that it earned its epithet as the Dalmatian guardian of the open sea. The Veli rat lighthouse, just like the lighthouses Savudrija, Rt Zub and Struga can be visited in the winter as well as they all have heating.

It was built in 1849 on the north-western cape of Dugi otok, 35 kilometres to the west of Zadar. It is 3 kilometres away from the villages Veli Rat, Berunić and Polje, and 20 kilometres from the ferry port in Bibinje. It features a four-bed and a three-bed suite, and can be reached by car. On account of its close proximity to the nearby towns, visitors can easily obtain food and other necessities. Should you, on top of the natural beauties of Veli Rat wish to visit the nearby national park Kornati or nature park Telaščica, you can easily do that from the town Sali on the other end of the island.
