Sali is a popular fishing and vacation destination on Dugi Otok (Long Island) and serves as the gateway to the nearby "Telascica" Nature Park and Kornati National Park. The salt works that gave rise to the town's current moniker were first mentioned in writings from the 12th century. The area is now a popular spot for scuba divers.

As the island's most populous settlement, Sali also serves as its political and administrative hub. It's a popular destination for vacationers interested in sightseeing, water sports, and other nautical pursuits. Documents dating back to the 10th century attest to Sali's long history as a fishing village. The village's ancient olive groves attest to its long history as an agriculture centre.

Churches of the Assumption and St. Roch and Nicholas are part of Sali's cultural legacy. The parish church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary features a beautiful wooden altar from the 17th century and inscriptions written in Glagolitic. In the fields of Sali, you can also find the ruins of the floorplans for other Christian churches.

Sali Festival, also known as Saljske užance, is a three-day event featuring performances by the world-famous Tovareca muzika (donkey music).
