The small resort of Soline lies in the northwest region of the island of Dugi Otok, which extends parallel to the coast of Zadar and belongs to the holiday region of North Dalmatia. Soline is one of the oldest settlements on the island and was first mentioned in the 12th century. The place was named after the salt marshes which once were found in the Soliscica Bay. In the meanwhile, olive processing has gained greater importance. Every year, the olive farmers process their olives into oil at the on-site oil mill. The water ferry characterizes the townscape in the Bay of Soline. From here, there are connections operating to the surrounding Islands of Molat and Rivanj and to Zadar on the mainland.

The village today emits a certain charm that let's you enjoy the seclusion of your quiet holiday away from larger, more busy destinations. Soline is a place far away from mass tourism and a village of only 38 inhabitants. You will only find a few private accommodations here, which does not mean that you will get the chance to see the cultural and historical monuments of Soline. Definitely of interest are the Sveti Jakov Church from the 15th century and the picturesque stone houses. There are some shops and taverns here.
The local beach is very rocky, so most vacationers take the drive towards Veli Rat to the sandy Sakarun Beach located only 1.5 km away.
