Beach days and party vibes on the isle of Pag

Situated on the north end of the island of Pag, the Croatian town of Novalja enjoys all the benefits of its stunning Adriatic locale.

Things to do

A small and charming village packed full of history

The village of Novalja is small and charming, and includes the City Museum Novalja. This local spot proudly highlights the area's history, archaeological finds, and up-and-coming artists through regularly changing exhibits. Be sure to also pay a visit to the Stomorica, an archaeological collection with artifacts and remains of local buildings that date back to the 4th century. For Novalja vacation rentals in or around town, you'll be pleased to find that everything is walkable—the village is so tiny that there are only 3 streets and no addresses!


Come and see if this is truly the Croatian Ibiza

Formerly a popular family destination, Novalja is growing as a popular spot among younger travelers. Zrce Beach was recently named "The Croatian Ibiza," thanks to its open-air beach clubs—many of which also host annual music festivals each summer. The city itself is intimate, with 3 main streets of cafes, restaurants, and shops. Roman ruins abound, plus family-friendly public beaches such as Caska Beach, which aren't quite as buzzy as Zrce. Be sure to stock up on locally made cheese and wine, perfect provisions for all Novalja vacation rentals!


It's almost always time to party in Novalja

If you're hoping to hit the beach while in Novalja, plan a trip from late spring through early fall. July and August are best for long, hot days full of sun and warm seawater, but they're also the island's most crowded. Instead, try for the shoulder seasons. You'll still find lovely weather in May and June or September and October, but the crowds are smaller and prices lower. November through April may have some pleasant days mixed in with rain, but many restaurants and resorts do close down for the off-season.

Natural features

By bridge or by boat, just get thee to Novalja!

While there are many islands off of Croatia's coast, Pag is extremely easy to reach from the mainland. This is all thanks to a bridge that connects to the southern tip of the island, called the Paski Most. Ferries and private boats are also available to take you across by sea, if you prefer to coast along the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic. The island itself is often referred to as "moonlike," thanks to its barren, rocky landscape, minimal vegetation, and pebble beaches.
