Zrce beach
Zrce beach: quiet until nightfall

 

About 30km north of Pag Town on Pag Island, Novalja is a small town and port that has now become one of the top summer party spots in Europe. The small town is short on sightseeing but only a couple of kilometres away is the legendary Zrce beach.

Music Festivals

The wide, shingle beach curving around a shallow bay creates a stunning backdrop to a series of music festivals throughout the summer. The best known is the Hideout Festival in late June which features the best of underground dance music.

A close runner-up would be the Sonus Festival in late August, a massively popular dance party with renowned DJs.

And don't forget Spring Break Europe in early June, Hard Island in early July, Area 4 in mid-July, Armada in late-July, followed by Loveweek, Vibe Guide, and Black Sheep.

Most of the action centers around Papaya Club or Noa Beach Club, one of Croatia's best beach clubs with a pool, five bars, a dance floor and a workout area.

Getting to Novalja

Novalja is a straightforward drive across Pag island from the causeway connecting it to the mainland near Zadar. Also, Jadrolinija runs a daily 3pm passenger boat from Rijeka stopping at Rab town.

You can also get a taxi transfer direct from Split airport to Novalja at a surprisingly affordable price from Solo Transfers.

Or, take a day trip to Zrce beach from Split in a luxury minibus.
