Pag is an island with most indented coastline on the Adriatic. Because of its naked, rocky slopes it appears to be an extension of Velebit Mountain that stands above it. Pag landscape is very unusual, unlike the other Mediterranean islands, it is not covered with greenery. Due to its extraordinary visage, the surface of island is often compared with the Moon surface. From the southern side island is accessible by bridge from which spreads a stunning view on the island and its surroundings. Pag is the most famous for its gastronomical offer. Although, a lack of fertile soil is more than obvious, hard working Pag`s residents made the island a must-visit gastro destination.
