Green and verdant on one side and rocky and barren on the other, an island of varied landscape and one of Croatia's finest island towns

It's all about sandy beaches (30 of them), prettiest towns, fossils, stunning geological sights, healthy food, harbour cafes, families and party goers. Rab is a North Adriatic Island with 30 sandy beaches, stunning scenery, lush thousand year old oak woods and some extraordinary natural geological formations because of which it is one of Europe's recognised Geoparks. It is one of the Kvarner islands and is just 22 km long by 11 km wide. It is well known for its mild climate. Verdant in the south-west, rocky in the north and east and rocking in the middle, Rab has a lot to offer. Families like the safely shallow, sandy beach in the northern peninsula of Lopar, while nature lovers and naturists hike to the wilder beaches there.
