The picturesque bay Brbišćica is in the southwest of Dugi Otok. It has special geomorphological significance due to the discovery of traces of prehistoric history in the immediate proximity of the bay. Namely, a dinosaur fossil was found on the steep slopes of Brbišćica, so the whole area enjoys special protection. The bay can be reached by boat and car. In the immediate vicinity of the bay are two natural must-see attractions: Zmajevo Oko (Dragon's Eye) and the sea cave Golubinka.
Zmajevo Oko is a natural phenomenon that was formed by the wear of the limestone rock in which it is located. Experienced swimmers and divers with enough courage can dare and dive through the underwater corridor that separates Zmajevo Oko from the sea.
The cave Golubinka is a wonderful natural attraction with a large opening in the ceiling through which sunlight reaches the cave. Thanks to the natural light that comes through the open ceiling at its end, a wealth of underwater fauna awaits you in a seemingly rugged tunnel that opens into a beautiful little hall at its end.
At the end of the cave is a small beach which is a perfect spot for taking photos.
It is not recommended to visit the Golubinka cave if the wind is blowing, and the sea is wavy. During stable weather in summer months, the mistral winds blows in the Adriatic almost every afternoon, which can create high waves, so if you plan to visit the Golubinka cave, you should do it in the morning when the weather is stable.
If you want to visit the cave, here are some instructions:
- it is necessary to master the skill of swimming when visiting the cave
- we recommend visiting the cave in the morning because it faces the open sea, so the winds often blow
- we recommend that you visit the cave accompanied by a guide, by kayak or SUP
- the cave can only be reached by sea and entered by swimming or kayaking
- DO NOT jump off rocks
