Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The busiest of the islands dotted around Kvarner, Rab has been a popular tourist destination ever since Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson brought the world’s press here to watch them frolic nakedly in its waters in the summer of ’36. In doing so, they pioneered naturism, unwittingly setting up Rab as its hub. Fewer niche reasons for the swarm of tourists in high season are historic Rab town itself, and the regimented beaches of Lopar. Wilder, more secluded beaches and verdant hinterland can be found elsewhere.
