The perfect place for all looking for somewhere secluded to take the break that they deserve, charge their batteries and light the path in front of them!
The imposing Punta Bjanka lighthouse is located on the northwestern cape of the island of Dugi otok, in the vicinity of the town of Veli Rat, 35 kilometres to the west of Zadar.
It is surrounded by dense pine forest, beautiful bays and pebbled beaches. It was built in 1849, and it is 42 metres tall, with a light range of 22 nautical miles. Being the highest lighthouse on the Adriatic, it owes its distinctiveness to its yellow facade for which, according to the legend, 100,000 egg yolks were spent.
The Chapel of St Nicholas was built in the yard of the lighthouse and is an increasingly popular venue for romantic weddings. The lighthouse also offers apartment accommodation.
The settlements of Veli Rat, Verunić and Polje are located 3 kilometres away from the lighthouse, while the ferry port in Brbinj is 9 kilometres away. The lighthouse can be accessed by car. [Source: TZ Zadarske županije]
