Things to do in Novalja

Novalja on the island of Pag is well-known worldwide as a center of entertainment thanks to its famous beach Zrce, and four clubs who work all day and night. House and techno music that raise the atmosphere, as well as dance parties, usually starting at around 16, and lasts at least until 2 in the morning. During the summer Novalja is visited by numerous world-renowned DJs, including the Benni Benassi, Jamie Jones and Swanky Tunes !

Zrce is not only for lovers of beach parties. Many families come here with their towels and enjoy this beautiful stone beach. Visitors can also go on the bungee-jumping or can rent a paddle boat, canoe or jet ski. Feel free to bring your own food or refrigerator, but keep in mind that this beach town has many bars and restaurants, so you can easily have a lunch there.

Things to do in Novalja

In addition to Zrce, Novalja offers tourists and many other beautiful beaches. My favorite beaches are Cista and Babe, and both are perfect if you are looking for a sandy coast (Babe beach is mostly rocky, but becomes sandey as soon as you enter the water). These beaches are much less crowded than Zrce, and are ideal for a relaxing afternoon, and sea water is a little warmer than in Zrce.

If you do not want to spend all day partying, check the calendar of events that are available in the local tourist office, so you can check if there are any scheduled musical or cultural events that might interest you. I highly recommend a visit to the City Museum Novalja, where you can see the ancient Roman aqueduct, learn about archaeological excavations on the island and on the traditional Croatian way of life, and check out the modern art museum on the gallery on the top floor.

Nearby you can visit the archaeological collection, which houses ancient Roman tombs, tools and ceramics. If you enjoy outdoor activities, you can always rent equipment for hiking, skiing, surfing, diving and cycling. After a hard day in the sun, the best place for shopping and relaxation, and good food is certainly the center of Novalja.

As for the food, be sure to visit restaurants "Starac i More" for a gourmet dinner and excellent service, and La Paloma for a delicious breakfast and sweet smoothie (La Paloma is also internet café). There are also many other restaurants and pizzerias, as well as street kiosks where you can buy boiled corn and pancakes. For dessert, be sure to try the ice cream that you can buy from the trolley on the street.

How to get to Novalja

You will have to sit on the ferry that goes from the mainland to the island (my favorite way to travel - the ride is relaxing and you can enjoy the beautiful view), or to drive across the bridge that connects the Zadar and Pag. The long quees in the port can be very frustrating, so plan in advance the time that will be required to obtain tickets, drinks and snacks at the coffee shop !
