Paradise Beach (Rajska plaža)
Paradise Beach is only a twenty-minute walk from the Lopar center. It is the largest sandy beach, about two kilometers long. This beach is especially suitable for families with children because the water is mostly shallow, and the deep water starts only at about 900-1000 meters from the coast. This is also the beach with the most activities for children and young people and lots of cafes, restaurants and accommodation capacities. While spending your summer days on Paradise Beach, you can walk and swim to two smaller islets that are close by. Paradise Beach is the most frequent and most visited beach on the island of Rab. If you want a quieter place, then you can just keep walking for 10 minutes, until you stumble upon the next beach. Do not forget that Lopar and Rab hide many inlets and beaches that are not officially recognized, and mostly there's no one there, so you can find your peace and connection with nature.
