The municipality of Dugi Rat is situated by the very seaside, along the Adriatic road, and stretches from the village of Podstrana to the town of Omis. At its northern side it is surrounded by Mt Mosnjica, and on its southern side, by the sea of the Brac Channel. This entire area thus lies by the very seafront covering a surface of approximately 12 km2. If considered from the east, this region covers the following villages:
DUCE, DUGI RAT, ORIJ, MALI RAT, SUMPETAR, SUHI POTOK, KRILO and BAJNICE.
In the foot of Mt Mosnjica are old villages such as: DUCE, KRUG, ZELJOVICI and JESENICE.
The municipality of Dugi Rat has an ideal setting along the seaside, as it is situated between two urban centres: Omiš, a smaller town and Split a larger city, of ancient history and numerous cultural and historic treasures. The municipality of Dugi Rat is an ideal link between them, creating a series of villages as part of a continuous chain of houses and villages.
Mountains of pine woods that reach the very beaches make this region particularly attractive.
Nearly the whole coast consists of pebbly beaches, while the part from Dugi Rat to Omiš is covered with sandy ones. The village of Duce with its magnificent, nearly continuous sandy beaches, about 4 km long, are a natural phenomenon. A number of houses along the very coast have been built for tourism. There are several houses that provide board and lodging and a number of catering facilities.
The scent, silence, nature and scenery of the horizont and islands, make this region particularly attractive to tourists from large modern cities.
Picturesque old villages,numerous coves, harbours, small ports, old ships, modern motor yachts, fishing boats, yachts, small boats, fishing equipment and nets, vineyards, figs, olives, sour cherries and the sun, sun, sun ...
