Catch one of the hourly buses from 10pm from Rab town for the 10-km (six-mile) trip to Pudarica beach by Barbat, and a decadent outdoor dance experience. Hundreds of punters, plus the occasional go-go dancer, shimmy on the pebble beach to house and disco hits. There are also gigs by local bands. SBC has a thatch-shaded lounge, a beach volleyball court and a small pool for those who show up (and pose) by day. Modelled after the beach clubs on nearby Pag, the Santos may not be original but it can guarantee you a busy party most nights in high season.
Lopar contains relaxing beachside cafés and temporary thatched-roof stands selling cocktails on the main beach, but Rab town is the place to go out of an evening, with harbour bars and clubs that buzz from happy hour until way past midnight. Umbrella-shaded tables and juggling cocktail mixers fill Rab town’s main square of Trg Municipum Arba, where the fun goes past midnight at places like the San Antonio Club.
