With 30 sandy beaches Rab is a really Happy island with a lot of tiny, picturesque coves, recognised by tourists from all over the world almost 125 years ago, to this day, due to the crystal clear, warm and shallow sea, great for the entire family. Everyone can find their own private beach on Rab based on their preference: there are naturist beaches, solitary coves, beaches for dogs and beaches for single people looking for a bit of...love :)
Situated between 44.41' and 44.51' north latitude, the happy Island of Rab sits in the middle of the Gulf of Kvarner, accompanied by dozens of other Croatian islands. Like the Croatian coast itself, this 22 kilometers long and 11 kilometers wide island stretches northwest - southeast and is separated from the mainland by the Velebit channel.
More than 30% of the island of Rab is covered in all kinds of plant life from aromatic shrubs along the slopes of Kamenjak carst to lush pine and oak forests housing rabbits, pheasents, birds of prey, even deer on a nearby island of Grgur. Some refer to it as the Emerald isle, due to all that deep green nature of Rab.
Waters around Lopar are home to several pods of friendly dolphin, whose photograpsh make ideal holiday memories.
