In the Kvarner Bay, right between the islands of Krk and Pag, lies the stunning island of Rab. With almost 2,500 hours of sunshine a year, the island is one of the sunniest corners of Europe. And there is enough rain to stay lush with greenery.
The extremely indented coast is filled with coves with pine frames, especially in the southwest. To the northeast is Lopar with two of the best beaches in Croatia. The interior is rural with vineyards, olives and vegetables, but most people flock to the picturesque town of Rab, known for its 4 bell towers, or one of six other villages: Mundanija, Supetarska Draga, Kampor, Banjol, Palit and Barbat.
Rab is first mentioned in the travelogue of the Greek geographer Pseudo Skilaks, who mentions the islands of Rab and Pag under the common name "Mentorides". And one of the most famous people from Rab is Saint Marin, the founder of the state of San Marino.
It is easy to get by ferry from Krk to Rab, there is also a catamaran that runs all year round from Rijeka to Rab. If you're on wheels, there are numerous land ferries (Stinica) every day
