This is why you must come to Rab!
Rab island covers 93.6 square km total area. It is also known as one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic, covered with pine forests and beautiful sandy beaches. Rab is well known for its mild climate which differs from the mainland – all thanks to three ridges that protect the island from cold winds from the Velebit mountains.
The main resort, Rab Town, is full of medieval buildings built during the Venetian rule since the 13th century. The old town walls are still visible at some places.
Other than the small town of Rab, there are 7 idyllic places on the island situated on different parts of the island: Barbat, Banjol, Palit, Kampor, Mundanije, Supetarska Draga and Lopar.
Barbat is the first place on the island where you will come after you get off the ferry. It is surrounded with sandy beaches, and the fish you can eat in restaurant is supplied by local fishermans. We highly recommend you to try famous kvarner’s shrimp or at least some of the vegetables grown in local.
Also known by its shipwrights, Barbat is very popular between sailors that come here with their own boats. For those who are more interested in land, Barbat is offering possibility of excursions on earlychristian military fort on the hill of st. Damian. > Read more
