Sukosan cherishes the old customs, like the feast of St. Kasijan, the patron saint of Sukosan (13th August). The parish church of St. Kasijan, erected probably in the 11th century (fragments with of "pleter" motifs - interlacery ornamentation), assumed its present aspect in the 17th century. Also very interesting are the ruins of the 15th-century summer villa of the archbishops of Zadar on an islet in the bay and the ruins of the mediaeval fortress erected by the counts of Bribir on Cape Bribircina. A mediaeval chapel is situated around 3.5 km on the road to the north-east of the village.
