The settlement is comprised out of hamlets Mali Lukoran, Turkija, Zmorac, Primorje, Punta and Rancicevi-Sikiricevi. The beaches and coves are surrounded by pine forests and the whole settlement is beautified with summer houses of noblemen from Zadar out of which the most famous one is the De Ponte summer house (17th century).
