Hunting and fishing

In the waters around the island of Rab you can admire schools of fish and shells. On obtaining a fishing permit, the visitor to the island can enjoy the delights of fishing. An open hunting ground is located on the peninsula Kalifront and it is managed by the Faculty of Forestry in Zagreb in the purpose of scientific and research work.



Owing to the geographical location and size of our island, there is a multitude of nearby spots to visit and complete your experience, such as few other destinations can boast of. For example, the one-and-a-half hour tour of the old town centre is an experience everyone will remember, not to mention the tour of the whole island and the boat trips (half- or full-day) around the whole island or to neighbouring islands, all offering the chance to bathe too and truly experience being on a boat at sea. Then there are options to visit the Plitvice and Paklenica National Parks and the Northern Velebit National Park – three pearls of the Velebit range and Lika region, rearing up behind Rab, and a stone’s throw away.
