Wherever you are on Pag you are always close to the sea as the island is nearly 60 km long but has a width of only two to five kilometres and a coastline of 269 km. Pag Island has about 8 400 inhabitants most of them living in Pag Town or Novalja.
The fall wind Bora from the Velebit Mountains makes the salt cover the barren and almost bizarre stony eastern landscape and vegetation so that most plants cannot grow except different kinds of wild herbs like sage and thyme. The numerous sheep scour the stony slopes in search of edible plants and much of their diet comes from these different wild herbs covered with a small film of salt. Throughout its history salt production has played an important role on Pag. The huge salt basins have become a symbol of the island and nowadays this very pure and fine sea salt is known worldwide. The most famous of Pag´s culinary specialities is the sheep´s cheese. Its distinctive taste is due to the method of preparation and the diet of the sheep. Only behind the limestone rocks olives, grapes, several kinds of fruit and vegetables are grown. The sleepy Lun peninsula is famous for its ancient olive groves with trees that are 1.600 years old. The scenic fishing village Lun with its traditional picturesque small houses and the colourful fishing boats is always worth a visit. Not to forget the small local restaurant here where they offer the freshly caught calamari, the famous Pag cheese and other traditional dishes. If you want to escape from overcrowded tourist places like Novalja, the island´s main resort and 24-hour party destination, or Zrce, famous for attracting mostly young people with its open- air discos, Pag is also an excellent place to be near almost untouched nature. Here you can enjoy the crystal clear deep blue sea and lonely coves, spectacular coastline views and the smell of so many different varieties of herbs.
Pag Town, the capital of the island, is a pleasant and relaxing holiday place with narrow lanes, Renaissance churches a seafront promenade and pebbly stretches of beach. It invites you to stroll around, find something interesting in one of the numerous handcraft and souvenir shops or just enjoy a cup of coffee or an ice-cream in a cosy café. Pag has been famous for the art of lacemaking since the fifteenth century and you can buy one of the small pieces that are sold from the doorsteps by elderly women, the lacemakers who are still wearing the dark full-skirted local costume of the Adriatic region. Worth seeing are the Rector´s Palace and the parish church, both built by the famous architect Juraj Dalmatinac, as well as the curious-looking tower Skrivanat.
