Today it is the tourist center of Dobrinjština but not so long ago it was primarily reliant on fishing and shipping industry. The first ferryboat on the Croatian side of the Adriatic operated between Šilo and Crikvenica.Šilo celebrates its day on August 16th on the Feast Day of St. Rocco. The tradition originated in the mid-19th century, when the plague was rife in these areas.
