Brbinj is a small picturesque seaside village on the northeastern coast of the Island of Dugi Otok, which lies just before the port city of Zadar in North Dalmatia. Brbinj is located approximately in the middle of the island and lies on a promontory going between the two pine-tree-fringed bays of Jaz and Lucina. The two towns of Brbinj and Zadar are connected by a ferry boat that operates up to 4 times a day. The port in Brbinj holds, consequently, great importance for the island, despite it being very quiet here. Owners of smaller boats will appreciate anchoring in the quiet and safe harbor.

A beautiful promenade as well as a few restaurants and bars attract evening walkers and tourists to the harbor. Brbinj has a history that is more than 800 years old. Located away from the shore, the little village church is worth seeing. The rustic building dates back to the 14th century and gives tourists, as well as other buildings, a good idea of the history of the town. These others include a ruined castle with a small chapel dating back to the 17th century and a noble summer house, which dates back to the 16th century.

The coastline in and around Brbinj is crisscrossed by large rocks and it is here, on the wild beaches, that dogs can run and play. The towns lying nearby have beaches that are more suited for swimming.
