Island of Pag – Island with the longest coastline

pag-croatia-hr-5

The island of Pag is one of the biggest Adriatic islands: it is the fifth largest island with 284.50 square kilometres.

Its 270 kilometres of the indented coastline make it the island with the longest coastline on the Adriatic, rich with coves, bays, beaches and capes. The biggest bay, the bay of Pag, is rounded by 27 km of the gravel beaches. Pag is unique due to its vegetation where trees are the rarest form.

Therefore, Pag is the largest kingdom of rocky ground on the Adriatic, where thin grass, low aromatic herb cover, sage and immortelle grow.

They make the foundation of the nourishment of the island’s sheep on the rocky ground, intersected by long dry stonewalls, giving a special flavour to the well known cheese of Pag. The gastronomy of the island offers first class sheep cheese and lamb, as well as various seafood specialities. In a dry-land continuation of a shallow bay hides yet another natural wealth – mud which has been tested and proved to be curative.

The island of Pag offers unusual shapes, wild exoticism, gentle oasis, hiking trails and shallow bays. Visiting all these places might last even several days.

Going round the north side of the island is recommended strictly during the summer, when everyone with even a little bit of investigator mentality would experience an unforgettable adventure away from the throng, in a particular world of the rocks and the sea.
