If you are into exploring, you can take a walk around the village. Sali has a thousand year old fishing tradition and culture. You can visit its parish church with wooden altar from the 17th century and Glagolitic transcriptions. If you are lucky you can even spot musicians performing “Tovareća mužika” or Donkey music. Locals are dressed in traditional fishing clothes and they go through the village playing simple, rhythmic melody performed on various kinds of drums and old irons filled with pebbles.
At the end of the village you will find the official “Lazy spot” where you can sit and relax by doing nothing.
