Pag is an island in the Adriatic Sea, belonging to Croatia. It is the third largest island in Kvarner Bay. When driving on the Paski bridge you will experience what it is like to reach the island in the 90s. This was the only connection with the mainland for many years. Nowadays you can also easily reach the island by ferry.
The island Pag has a completely different landscape than the mainland of Croatia. If you drive from the mainland to Pag it looks like a lunar landscape. A large part of the island has no vegetation, only beautiful white rocks and fields. The other part is very green, with beautiful beaches. It is the ideal place for beach lovers.
The rich history can also be seen back on the island. In the capital Pag there are many old churches to visit, the 15th century palace of the Duke of Pag and an old defense tower. End the day with Pag delicacies in one of the cozy restuarants; the island is known of its delicious lamb. Because the island is covered with a layer of sea salt, the lambs consume this. This gives the lamb a special taste, which you should definitely try.
