Activities and Sports in Novalja

Novalja beaches

Novalja is a perfect spot for younger people in quest of amusement until the morning hours. Zrce beach features the very best nightlife in Dalmatia. It hosts day beach events and various additional activities that are just an intro to the entertaining that goes on all night long, typically carries on the following day. A few of the leading Croatian as well as Europe clubs are situated on Zrce. Zrce is not only for party-goers, though. Many families lay out their towels for a day at the stunning rock beach. Don't hesitate to carry your own meals and fridge, but also notice that this Novalja beach has café-bars and dining establishments so you can simply get a snack or quick beverage at your convenience. Along with Zrce, Novalja provides travelers a variety of additional beautiful beaches. My preferences are Babe and Cista because they are ideal if you're searching a sandy coastline. Browse the list of hotels and apartments close to the Cista beach. Both of these beaches feature a much less action and entertainment than Zrce, providing a peaceful mid-day, and their waters have the tendency to be a little bit hotter also.

Culture & Attractions in Novalja, Croatia

If you don't believe that spending all day lazing at the beach or partying it up, have a look at the community schedule, which you can grab at a regional tourist office to find if there are any music or cultural arrangements of interest. I would also strongly recommend going to the Novalja City Museum where you can find the Novalja's historic Roman water passage, learn about archeological explorations on the island and traditional Dalmatian living. Historical monuments fans can check out and look at the antic water passage from the 1st century, the ruins of the floor mosaic from one of the temples, situated inside the gothic church of the Our Lady of the Rosary, various components of church furniture and plenty of additional items placed in the archeological compilation "Stomorica". The leftovers of the sunken trade boat from the 1st century BC are especially intriguing to the scuba divers. Today, the place is safeguarded with an iron cage and diving enthusiasts have free access to explore the site. For individuals who don't have the chance to explore the site, a photo and video exhibit of the place can be checked out, in addition to restored items, in a local museum in Novalja.


The island of Pag is well-known for a couple of food specialties that you can try in any of the numerous dining establishments and bars in Novalja. If you would like to taste the specialties of Novalja and the island of Pag like famous cheese, lamb, a range of seafood meals and traditional specials like hrostule and fritters, check out restaurants "Boskinac", "Sidro" and taverns "Arka" and "Antika". The very first is the world-famous and awarded Pag cheese, unique as a result of the strong northern "bura" wind, that carries sea salt to the fragrant natural herbs flourishing on the stony slopes. That's why the cheese, produced hundred of years in a conventional way, is so yummy. Try the traditional white wine Gegić, red wine Burin and an excellent grappa from various aromatic herbs of the island. On a stroll through the Novalja area, you can check out the vineyard Boskinac and take pleasure in the attractive surroundings.

Where to stay in Novalja, Island of Pag

There are lots of 3-stars and 4-stars hotels like Hotel Liburnija, Hotel Terra or Boutique Hotel Boskinac but most of the accommodation units are holiday apartments and villas. Most of the apartments are situated close to the heart of the town and main plaza, where all the eating places and pubs are, and just a short walk to a pebble beach. Holiday accommodation in Novalja will provide breathtaking views over magnificent countryside, out across a clear light-blue sea and the sun-drenched beaches of the Dalmatian Coastline. You can take pleasure in a fantastic holiday to Novalja without breaking the bank, with Pag-Apartments.co.uk holidays' deals on and cheap accommodation and flexible booking. There's a growing choice of accommodation in Novalja, but summer-season rates are rising as well: taking a trip in July or August will not offer any discounts. There is a growing number of fully equipped three and four-star hotels but a relative shortage of boutique hotels and B&B s. For the moment, the apartments and private rooms provided by local families stand for the island's best-value holiday accommodation.

How to get there

We recommend taking a flight to Zadar if you wish to go to Novalja or anyplace in Pag island as it has the simplest and most affordable transfer time to the spot. When traffic situations are good you can simply make the trip in merely 1 hour. You can take a ferry boat from the mainland to the island or drive across the bridge linking Zadar with Pag. Lines can get annoying at the ferryboat harbor, but take the time to buy your tickets, get a refreshment and snack food at the café-bar, or take a swift plunge in the crystal clear turquoise sea. The connection to Novalja from the northern Croatia including Pula and Rijeka flight terminal is relatively simple as a result of the ferryboat link ( Prizna - Zigljen ).

Use our private accommodation list to make reservations online. Accommodation in Novalja spans everything from rooms, apartments, beachfront villas and small family run hotels. Locally run private accommodation in Novalja can provide excellent value for money.
