Veli Rat is the northernmost place of the island and is located in the Čuna bay. It dates from Roman times and the most distinguished sacred building is the parish church of St. Anthony.
There is also a very modern marina for boats in the place as well as a tourist office and post office. Southeast of Veli Rat is the sandy beach Sakarun, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic.
The pearl of Veli Rat is the lighthouse Punta Bjanca, located three kilometres northwest of the village. Punta Bjanca is the biggest lantern in the Adriatic and is 42 meters high. To all visitors who are looking for solitude and privacy, an accommodation possibility is an apartment suite in the lighthouse, although it is necessary to make a reservation ahead due to a great demand for accommodation in the lighthouse.
In the courtyard of the lighthouse is a chapel of St. Nicholas which can be used to organize a romantic wedding with a view overlooking the open sea.
The marina Baotić is located in Veli Rat with associated facilities such as reception and toilet facilities.
