Pine forests, nice beaches and a picturesque and well-protected location make Rogoznica an attractive tourist destination. In addition to bathing and other water sports, visitors may enjoy cultural and entertainment programs, organized during the tourist season. The most important events are the Rogoznica Fiesta (held on the first Saturday in August) and the Fishermen's Night.
Since Rogoznica has a number of fishermen, fresh fish is regularly offered. Among local specialities, the best is Rogoznica-style fish stew ("brudet").
Apart from usual sports and recreational activities, Rogoznica also offers fencing opportunities. The fencing school and the International Fencing Camp at the Fencing Club "Galeb Grafoplast" have been active since 1987. Organized excursions are also offered.
The most important religious feast is the day of Our Lady of Kapalica, with a large procession of boats.
Rogoznica was populated as early as ancient times. The parish church was built in 1615 and reconstructed in the 19th century. On top of its village are the remains of a fortification; the construction was started by the French in 1809. In the Rogoznica field are mediaeval churches of St. Nicholas (with stelae) and Bl. John of Trogir, constructed in the mediaeval Dalmatian architectural styles; an artificial island was made in the bay in 1993-1996, to be used as a marina.
