Geographical location of Pag

The island of Pag is located between the Velebit Channel and Kvarnerić, between the islands of Rab, Olib and Vir, in the immediate vicinity of the mainland. With an area of ​​286.6 km2, it is one of the largest Adriatic islands, and with 270 km of indented coastline, it is the island with the longest coastline in the Adriatic, full of bays, coves, capes and beaches. The largest bay, Paška Bay, is surrounded by 20 km of pebble beaches.

The Bay of Pag is divided into the Novalja-Cask and Paško-Dinji valleys, and to the west are the Kolansko-Vlašićka and Povljanska valleys. The highest island peak is Sv. Vid is 348 m high, followed by Kršina peak at 263 m and Komorovac peak at 199 m.

The special and interesting feature of the island of Pag are the numerous sources of drinking water, and there are also numerous hot springs in the sea. Water mostly reaches the island under the seabed from the slopes of Velebit. There are also three freshwater swamp lakes on the island; Veliko and Malo blato and Kolansko blato. Although the climatic conditions on the island are classified as Mediterranean, the proximity of Velebit takes its toll and thus greatly affects the vegetation of the island, so the eastern part of the island is completely bare due to strong storms and strong salt water. The island of Pag is the largest kingdom of rocks interspersed with long dry walls on the Adriatic, where thin grass, low aromatic herbs, sage and immortelle grow. It is precisely this aromatic herb that is the basis of the diet of the Pag sheep on the stone farm, and it gives a special taste to the famous Pag cheese. Autochthonous evergreen thickets, medunac oak, holm oak, Aleppo pine … have also remained on the island. In the land extension of the shallow bay of Pag, another great treasure is hidden, tested and proven healing mud.

The inhabitants of the island are engaged in viticulture, olive growing, fruit growing, fishing, animal husbandry and agriculture, which, despite the significant share of rocky areas in the surface of the island, has had a great impact on the life of the islanders for centuries, all thanks to the fertile sandy soil.

The nearby village of Šimuni with a campsite and marina in the bay of Šimuni is a fishing village with a very good tourist perspective. Camp Šimuni is the largest and most equipped camp on the island, and its entire length is located next to pebble beaches. Marina Šimuni with 50 berths is located in the northern part of Šimuni in a protected bay.
Košljun, Smokvica, Vlašići, Dinjiška and Miškovići are very pleasant and peaceful island towns that, due to their geographical position by the sea and nature’s inclinations, have directed their future towards tourism.
