The island of Pag is located on the eastern side of the Adriatic, on the territory of Croatia, south of the island of Krk and east of the island of Cres. With the nearby islets, Rab forms an archipelago located in the Kvarner region.
Unlike other Kvarner islands, Rab has a small number of towns - just eight of them: Banjol
and Supetarska Draga
. All these towns (except Mundanije) are located near the coast so they are treated like tourist resorts. The island is connected to the mainland and with the neighboring islands of Krk and Pag with ferries while there is an offer of multiple daily connections by seaplane from Rab to Zagreb and to Rijeka via Rijeka Airport.
Being located on an excellent geographic and tourist location, the island and its tourist resorts are nowadays very popular to tourists and families. The city of Rab is the center of the whole island and is offering a number of historic sights to see. Barbat is famous for its number of small boardwalks and pebble beaches. Banjole on the other hand, is special for its four bays, Padovama. Palit is partially situated along the cove of St. Euphemia. The town of Kampor kept the true look of a traditional fishing town. As said before, Mundanije is the only town not located on the coast but is famous for cultivating fruits and vegetables in a traditional way. A big marina is located in the Supetarska Draga so this town is as must for all nautical enthusiasts to visit. The last town on the island is Lopar which is the farthest town on the island of Rab famous for its traditional lifestyle and parlance.
