Don’t miss out on sandy beaches – the spring months offer the opportunity to stretch your legs in the warm sun with no crowds around! Check out one of the longest sandy beaches in Croatia, The Paradise Beach (2 kilometers of dreamy sand strip) in Lopar or the sandy beaches Mel and Livačina.

Hop on (Electric) Bikes

Make it Sweet

You simply cannot miss trying the Rab cake, a royal delicacy with a history of being prepared for the Rab patricians even more than 300 years ago. Almonds and maraschino liqueur boast as the main ingredients and according to the original recipe, the preparation takes as long as 3 days.

Visit The House of Rab Cake in the old town, try some iconic deserts and learn more about the history of this special symbol of Rab.

Expand your Horizons

After exploring Rab, jump on a boat and go on an excursion to the nearby Islands od Sveti Grgur and Goli otok.

History buffs will surely use this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of visiting the uninhabited islands which served as a political prison during the time Croatia was a part of Yugoslavia. The chilling experience brings the old times into focus, along with the everyday life of those who were considered communist opponents.

It is true – not your average holiday excursion, but it is surely one you will not forget.

Do Well(ness)

We get it – sometimes you just want to stretch out and relax completely in every sense. Take a break from wandering and dive deep into the Sun&Spa wellness centre at Valamar Padova Hotel.

Delight in the Spa Oasis with Finnish, infrared and bio saunas, Turkish baths, massage showers and a relax room, along with an array of facial and body treatments. If in mood for some light swimming and lying about, enjoy the heated indoor freshwater pool which is free of charge for all hotel guests. In short – relax away!

And just to tease you a bit – we’d say you got a hint of why Rab is called ‘the Happy Island’. To get the full picture – visit it!
