Čeprljanda is the first in a series of hamlets in Ugljan if it moves from the direction of the ferry port in Preko towards Ugljan. It is believed that it is named after the plant that the local population calls "Čeprlj". The plant blooms in spring and is characterized by long thin leaves with a fleshy shoot. The hills of Straža and Mali and Veliki Kuranj towered over Čeprljand, from which a beautiful view of this hamlet, but also the whole town of Ugljan can be seen. Čeprljanda is known for the longest-lasting festival on the island - Čeprljanda festival, which dates back to 1979, and is held on the first Saturday in August.
The center of Ugljan is the hamlet of Lučino Selo. In this hamlet you can find a post office, an ambulance, the parish church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the tourist office, various restaurants, bars and shops. Lučino Selo is adorned by the sandy beach Mostir where the sea is always a degree or two warmer than on other beaches on the island. Next to the beach Mostir there is the most important protected cultural property of Ugljan, the monastery and the church of St. Jerome.
Only a kilometer from the center of Ugljan is the hamlet of Batalaža. The two main beaches in the hamlet make the cove of Batalaža ideal for lazing all day and relaxing by the sea. If you decide to spend time diving in the cove, at the bottom of the sea, you will find the wheel of a mill. The found remains of a Roman villa built during the Roman Empire, which served as a place of rest, socializing and relaxation, also tell us about the popularity of Batalaža in earlier times.
We can freely give Sušica the nickname "camp hamlet". Namely, at a distance of 1.5 km there are as many as 5 camps. In the center of the hamlet there is a beach with an open view of the open sea. Due to the indented coast and the position of Sušica, the only thing that can be seen from the beach is the huge sea area. It is a breathtaking experience. Since Sušica is geographically quite open and without natural shelters, the wind reaches the hamlet in full force, which is especially evident in winter when the wind forces the people of Sušica to stay in the warmth of their homes.
Gornje Selo is a hamlet that every lover of history and nature will want to explore. In the hamlet there is a castle "Beršić" which was built in the 17th century by the landowner Califfi. The castle was managed by the Beršić family (Brčić), recently restored and named after the world-famous basketball player "Dvor Krešimir Ćosić". The Church of All Saints, built in the 12th or 13th century, is located on a small hill above Gornje Selo. A short climb from the church leads to the Stražica lookout point, which offers a beautiful view of most of Ugljan.
At the very end of the island is the last hamlet of Ugljan - Muline. Muline abounds in beautiful beaches, groomed trails, along the coast and inland, for hiking and biking, and thanks to the port and mooring it is a common choice for boaters. In Muline is the most important archaeological site on the island of Ugljan from the 1st century with the remains of a large ancient oil mill where the famous Liburnian oil was produced. This oil mill was one of the strongest in the Mediterranean, and next to its remains today there is a replica in life size.
A small number of hamlets / inhabited places on the island are not located on the northern side of Ugljan, which is separated from Zadar by a few nautical miles. One of these hamlets is Guduće. Calm and peaceful, it is an ideal place to relax from the city noise, the constant ringing of mobile phones, the huge amount of e-mails and the crowded schedule. Since it is located on the south side of Ugljan, Guduće offers an unobstructed view of the neighboring islands of Iž, Rava, Sestrunj and Dugi otok. In the immediate vicinity of the hamlet of Guduće is the oldest preserved church in Ugljan - the church of St. Cosmas and Damian dating from the 11th or 12th century. According to legend, it was built as a votive church by the merchant Torricella who escaped in a shipwreck and swam to that place.
Along with Guduće, Fortoština is the only hamlet in Ugljan located on the south side of the island. It is this position that allows an unobstructed view, from the beach Lučica, to the neighboring islands of Iž and Dugi otok. The life of the people of Ugljan is closely connected with the sea. Throughout history, a large number of the inhabitants of the place were sailors or fishermen. Even today, almost every family has their own boat with which they set sail and spend pleasant hours fishing, squid fishing or swimming. Traces of the connection between Ugljan and the sea can be found in Fortoština, on the Lučica beach. There are a number of small rooms, a pantry with doors of various colors in which the people of Fotrošće store nets, tools, raincoats, lamps and other necessities for sailing and fishing.
Bowling (boćanje) is one of the most popular sports in Ugljan. Each hamlet has its own bowling alley (zog) where both women and men play. There is nothing different in the hamlet of Varoš - in the center, on a small "square", there is a bowling alley where the men's and women's team of Varoš is preparing for the traditional bowling tournament "ŠUG KUP".
In Varoš is the church of St. Hippolytus and Cassian built in the 11th or 13th century which is first mentioned in documents in 1374. In the past, unbaptized deceased people were buried there.
