Beaches - one for everyone
Beaches in Barbat channel (stretching from the town of Rab to the southeast end of the island) are lovely and small, no crowds, just nature and relaxation. Bring your own food, drinks and umbrella and leave the spot clean and unpolluted, please. Nudist and swimsuits, tolerant, find your small perfect spot under the sun, hide in shade and use UV protection cream.
Had To Leave...
I was there for one whole day. Enjoying the sceneries. Swimming, with & without my swimming gear.
I made sure nobody was around when I dipped myself in the water. Somehow I felt that all eyes on me !
Anyway, had to leave when the sun started to go down. Walked back & I got lost ! Managed to take this photo around Suha Punta.
Travelling to & from Rab by public transport
"Island hopping with the hydrofoil!"
Since last year it is much easier to get to the island Rab ( as well as Losinj and Novalja on Pag) from Rijeka by hydrofoil daily line in afternoon hours. No need for 3 hours bus ride on a hot summer afternoon any more.
Pitty Rab has so poor connection with Zadar... Generally, all croatian islands are not for quick coming and going.
If not in hurry, it is good idea to hop to Novalja, stay overnight and head for Zadar next day.
