Pag’s seabed is truly diverse. The sand areas within the Bay and the stone walls and plateaus of the Paška Vrata and the Velebit Channel create a unique place where the Central and the Northern Adriatic meet. Each of its corners is home to hundreds of species of fish, crustaceans, shellfish and cephalopods.
Diving locations will satisfy even the most demanding divers: Gorgonia coral-grown walls, caves filled with various sponges and meadows rich in flowering sea plants. Underwater photographers visit Pag in large numbers, searching for numerous sea snails that make the world's most colourful family of organisms and attract everyone’s attention. It should therefore come as no surprise that numerous areas of Pag’s seabed are recognised as cultural resources and protected as EU NATURA 2000 areas.
The specific beauty of Pag’s landscape, its numerous cycling paths and fascinating rocky contours attract tourists seeking the adventure of an active vacation. Cycling, swimming, diving, sailing, hiking, or simply strolling through this medley of the sea, rocks, sparse vegetation, and unspoiled nature create an opportunity to return to nature that hardly anyone can resist.
Aside from the main roads, the island has a network of alternative macadam roads and paths with no traffic, which makes them ideal for cycling sightseers. At our office, there are maps and information available on the numerous cycling paths.
Regardless of the length of your vacation, you will run out of time for exploring the island – which is a perfect reason to return and explore some more.
Pag, with its 302.47 km-long coastline, is Croatia's most indented island. Its coastline has an abundance of coves and beautiful pebble and sand beaches, and their locations and diversity appeal to the most demanding visitors - either those seeking numerous amenities (showers, water and beach sports, hospitality establishments, ice cream parlours,…) and those seeking secluded beaches. Prosika is the main beach in the town of Pag. It is 800 meters long and gently descends into the sea, which suits families with small children and non-swimmers.
The new town of Pag emerged in the letter half of the 15th century based on an urban planning scheme on a vacant site near the salt pans. Previously, the people of Pag lived in Stari Grad (Old Town; today: the Old Town Shrine of the Virgin Mary and the archaeological zone).
The town of Pag was built in the tradition of mediaeval masonry with a central square and four streets that divide it into four city blocks. The main square hosts all events of importance. It is bordered by the Parish Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Rector’s Palace, the unfinished Bishop’s Palace, and the Loggia.
