The coast around Preko, partly under the forests, offers bathing possibilities. In front of Preko are the islets of Osljak and Galovac. Preko is located on the regional road running along the island. Ferry lines with Zadar. In terms of tourism, Preko comprises the surrounding villages of Sutomiscica, Poljana and Osljak on the island of the same name.

Numerous folklore and entertainment programs are organized during the tourist season, the most popular being the so-called Prijeska Legrica, a traditional folk feast. Preko has a long tradition in tourism. The Promotion Society was active as early as the period between the two world wars. The Romanesque church of St. John the Baptist dates back to the 12th century. The Baroque parish church from the 18th century has an altarpiece by Franjo Salghetti-Drioli. On the hill (265 m) above the town is the large mediaeval fortress of St. Michael from the 13th century, erected by the Venetians around the former Benedictine monastery and church. The fortress offers a nice view on the group of islands in front of Zadar.
