The settlement is also well-known for its shipbuilders who have a long tradition of building wooden boats. Recently tourism is developing and more people are providing accommodation services in their family homes. In the settlement, there is the marina Betina which is suitable for the development of nautical tourism especially due to the vicinity of Kornati islands.
