Island Rab offers a lot to enjoy and discover:
Sun worshippers and water freaks find a lot of nice beaches to tan, swim and relax. As typical for Croatia, there are mainly pebble stone beaches, picturesque rocky bays or bathing areals made of concrete. Confessed, the last one does not sound very romantic, but these bathing areas mainly offer safe stairs into the water, a small bistro, public toilets and beach showers nearby. And to be frankly, it is not really important, on what ground your sunbed is standing, or??
Anyway, we recommend to wear swim shoes, also to be protected of sea urchins on the rocks.
Pretty wellknown is the sandy beach "San Marino" in Lopar, see below.
Those who love active holidays will find a georgeous landscape to explore by feet or bike. The tourist information office provides a special "biking & trekking map of Island Rab". Further informationen here
If you like, you can lent bicycles from us, just let us know. Of course there is a wide range of sport activities offered on Island Rab, as tennis, beach volleyball, mini golf, football and further more. Water-sports enthusiasts may looking forward to waterski, parasailing, diving und kajaking.
As a matter of fact, the Kamenjak, highest part of the island, is worth to be visited by car or bike (but only for very sportive and experienced cyclists) see below.
Very wellknown is the splendid sandy beach "San Marino", also called paradise beach, in Lopar. You can rent sunbeds and parasols there or just lay in the sand.
Due to the shallow water and the sand this beach is the favourite of families with small kids. For elder kids and never-grew-up-adults the Aquapark on the very right hand side of the beach offers a lot of fun with its huge water slides.
In front of the beach a shopping and dining area is located, where you can buy beach accessories, cool drinks, lunch snacks or just have a shopping stroll around.
But to be frankly, you will not find the paradise beach so uncrowded as shown on this picture, which was made in the off season begin of May 2016.
Who visits Island Rab, should definitively make an excursion to the peak Kamenjak, the highest point of the island (408m aa).
Enjoy the georgeous view from above on the historical old town of Rab, the Barbat channel between Rab and Island Pag, Velebit mountains in the east and Kvarner bay in the west.
On the top of Kamenjak is a little but wonderfull konoba (country typical restaurant) located, which invites to stay and enjoy the sight with a snack and a cold drink.
But let us advice caution, the streets leading to Kamenjak are not completely tarred nor illuminated. Who wants to enjoy the sundowner there should afterwards not wait too long with the departure...
Would you like to explore the island from its waterside? Ask Denis to take you for an excursion with his country typical motorboat to see the beauty of Rab from another perspection.
Find uncrowded bays or your favourite beach. Discover Island Pag or Goli Otok (the naked island, which was a natural prison in the history)
We are sure, you will enjoy a boat trip when the sea is calm and the weather is fine. Because when the sea is too rough or the Bura blows, we have to skip the schedule.
Without doubt there are lots of offers for 1-day-boat-trips to other islands or glass bottom boat trips at the harbour area.
