The island of Pag is known as the island of salt, cheese and lace. With a total area covering 284.6 km2, Pag is also one of the largest Croatian islands. The unique geographical position of this unique island nestling at the foot of the Velebit mountain range, where the wind blows almost throughout the year and covers the island with a thin layer of posolica, a salty sediment, which has influenced its rocky and bare appearance and which has also been compared to the surface of the moon. Another interesting aspect of the island of Pag is hidden in the fresh water springs which emanate from Velebit. On Pag you will also find three fresh water lakes called Kolansko blato, Veliko and Malo Blato. Due to its specific location and Mediterranean climate, Pag is also known for its various culinary delights derived from cheese, lamb, olives and aromatic herbs. Pag cheese, made from sheep’s milk, is amongst the best Croatia has to offer, and is also an indispensable souvenir that you must take back home with you when you visit this picturesque island.
A characteristic feature of the island of Pag is embodied in its traditional craft of Pag lace, which is also included in the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage. In the centre of the town Pag, you will also find a museum of the renowned Pag lace where you will be able to learn all about the interesting history of this unique crafted item, which today has become a symbol of the island. In the far north of the island of Pag, in the village of Lun, you will also find the famous Lun olive groves, a botanical reserve renowned for its large number of olive trees (about 80,000 of them), some of which are over 1500 years old. There is also the famous party location in Novalja called Zrce, also known as the Croatian Ibiza, which is full of fun in the summer months. On the other side of the island there is the 300-meter long Pag Bridge, which connects the island to the mainland. Pag actually has two ferry ports, one at Novalja and connects the island of Pag with Rijeka and the island of Rab to the north. The second ferry port is located on the southern part of the island, in the village of Žigljen, offering a ferry link to the port of Prizna, the nearest town on the mainland.
