Discover Croatia’s best UNESCO attraction with sea kayaking excursions on Rab Island.
One of Croatia’s best-kept secrets, Rab GeoPark is an untamed island in the Dalmatian archipelago – offering dramatic seascapes and ancient architecture that is best experienced from the shoreline. Paddle at your own pace and explore its rustic charm and abundant nature, hidden from view in caves and beaches only accessible with the tides.
Rab Island is a UNESCO accredited Geo Park close to the mainland in northern Croatia's Kvarner Gulf. Accessible by ferry from Rijeka and Zadar, it is renowned for its dramatic cave systems including Medova Buža (Bear Cave) and rugged beaches like Beach Ilo (Njivice).
