The island Rab will excite its visitors with its unique nature and sprawling sandy beaches. Since the days of the Roman Empire, this devine island was called the island of happiness – named Felix Arba by the Romans.
With its beauty and unique landscape it won many esteemed awards, (˝The Silver Flower of Europe˝, ˝The Blue Flower˝) and tourists have been coming to Rab regularly for more than 120 years.
The island's rich herritage stems from its culture and history; the island is known for its archery, multiple monasteries and sacred objects, 4 towers, Romanesque noble houses, a labyrinth of streets ang squares made of stone, and a beauiful forest park, Komrčar, that leads its visitors into times long gone.
It's unfortunate that Rab isn't very well known for its sandy beaches, so one could consider the fact that it is one of the island with the most sandy beaches on the Adriatic sea, a well-kept secret. Another factor adding to this myth is the fact that 35% of the island is covered in forest, which makes it the greenest Adratic island with its own ecosystem of unique flora and fauna. We advise our tourists to visit some of the most beautiful forests of the island for a unique view of the Adriatic coastline.
