What to visit

We have selected some interesting suggestions on what to visit while enjoying your vacation on the island of Pag.

Kolanjsko Blato - a refuge for rare birds

In the extreme south of Pag, spread across an almost deserted, no-man's land, according to the ancient Nin civilization, reeds, and the wetland area of Kolanjski Blato provide refuge for almost 150 species of birds. Clearly marked ornithological reserve, with observation houses and educational inscriptions, Kolanjsko Blato is mostly visited during the nesting and migration seasons. Endangered species include gadwall and calender, but you are more likely to see gray herons, great crested grebe, and spoonbills. You can get more details at the tourist office in the nearest town of Povljana.

Ancient Italian aqueduct – Talijanova buža

One of the greatest values and attractions of the island is the unique ancient aqueduct from the 1st century, carved in living stone. This unique Roman aqueduct, popularly called Talijanova buža, supplied Novalja with water from the Novalja field. The water supply system is about 1.2 km long, with a maximum width of 60-70 cm and has 9 openings on the surface, the so-called odiha, in some places it is up to 40 m high. The entrance to the aqueduct is located inside the City Museum, which preserves a part of Novalja's cultural and ethnological heritage.

Lokunje - medicinal mud

Lokunje is in the southwestern part of the town of Pag, next to the town beach Prosika. It is an area of shallow sea, at the bottom of which there is a rich layer of peloid - medicinal mud. Peloid has accumulated over millennia, and its healing properties have been proven not only by positive human experiences but also by numerous scientific studies. The people of Pag have always used medicinal mud to treat rheumatism.

Stogaj

Given the appearance of Pag, which is reminiscent of the Moon, and consists of a large part of the barren, karst rock, it is no surprise that Stogaj is a very popular destination for climbers. Near Metajna, first row to the sea, Stogaj is the most famous climbing area on Pag, which offers almost 20 marked routes over four parts. Absolute beginners can try the short, easy climb of ten meters, and experienced climbers can try the Scorpion or Spyder route. After this challenging physical activity, relax with swimming in the sea.

Sv. Vid

Sv. Vid is the highest peak of the island of Pag (342 m) with a beautiful view of the town of Pag, the Bay of Pag, the mountain Velebit and the surrounding islands. It is located above the town of Kolan and since the climb is exhausting, it is recommended that you go down to the charming Kolan for refreshment and rest.

Wells & coalmines

In Kolanjsko polje you will find old wells from Roman times (part of the Roman aqueduct that led to Caska) as evidence of the existence of a time when all the locals came to this place which is rich in drinking and clean water necessary for life. Not far from the old wells, the population of this area extracted coal, which was sent by rail to the nearby port of Šimuni, where the coal was taken over by Italian ships. Remains of coal mines around Kolanjsko polje (Vele and Male grbe) are still visible.

Bermuda triangle of the island of Pag

The secret about 12,000 years old, the Pag Triangle, is almost like the case from the science fiction drama television series The X-Files. The truth is out there, explore it for yourself. On an abandoned hill near the beach Caska towards Žigljen, in 1999 a bizarre phenomenon was discovered - the so-called Pag triangle. It is a formation in the shape of an isosceles triangle located on the Tusto čelo hill. The triangle was discovered quite by accident by Croatian surveyor Zdenko Grbavac during measurements at the quarry. He noticed a triangular formation that differed in color from the rest of the hill and measured it. He found that the formation was a regular triangle with two sides 32 meters long and the third 22 meters long. Upon further examination, it was concluded that the properties of this stone are not like any other surrounding rock. What made this triangle even more interesting were the 30-centimeter-deep holes on each side of the triangle for which no one could offer an explanation. This discovery attracted a lot of attention from the media, ufologists, and tourists. Geological surveys have concluded that the rocks within the triangle are of different colors due to exposure to extreme temperatures in the past. This megalithic formation is thought to be approximately 12,000 years old.
There are many theories about the origin of this phenomenon. One theory states that the triangle is the result of an alien spacecraft landing, another claims it is a remnant of a highly developed civilization, and a third advocates the power of nature arguing that everything is just the result of wind, salt and rain.

Centuries-old gardens of Lun olive trees

On the northernmost part of the island of Pag is the charming village of Lun, known for its olive trees that have been thriving in incredible symbiosis with the Dalmatian karst and the sun for more than a thousand years. The olive groves that cover the Lun peninsula represent a unique botanical treasure of the Mediterranean area and are also among the oldest olive groves in the world.
The small, exotic corner of the country, home to about 80,000 olives, hides an original Mediterranean olive variety that thrives in only two other locations in the world: Greece, and Israel. Lun stands out from Greece and Israel for the incredible number of millennial olives concentrated in such a small area. In 1963, it was declared a unique botanical reserve. A walk through the olive grove is magical, especially when you see the oldest preserved olive tree, self-sown more than 1600 years ago, which even today stands firmly along the macadam road. Unique in their own way and completely different from each other, these olives are fused with the stone they are surrounded by. They seem like they have always been there. And apart from the surreal look of each tree, which seems to be from a fairy tale, the fruits that are hand-picked in the fall give a top-quality olive oil that you can't taste anywhere else in the world. The pure, delicate taste of lunar oil provoked the palate as early as in Roman times when it was highly prized in imperial circles. This first-class quality oil is still known today, and we recommend that you buy at least one bottle after a walk.
