The Island of Pag has something for everyone - from distant and isolated beaches where you may relax in complete privacy to the party beach Zrce, where thousands of young people come to dance all day and night!

PRNJICA

Prnjica beach is very close to Zrće beach. It's accessible from the main road, very close to the city center of Novalja, but away from the city fuss. It's accessible on foot, but we recommend using a boat or car. Mind that there's a parking fee for cars.
