Rab (Italian Arbe) is an island and a town of the same name in Kvarner.



Rab is just off the northern coast of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea, today in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar county. The island was the frontier between Liburnia and Dalmatia. Rab is one of the most popular islands in the north Adria, with the town as beautiful as Dubrovnik, and green woods as in Mljet National Park.

After Opatija, Rab was one of the first vacation and wellness oases in the Kvarner archipelago region, also known as the pioneer of the nudism. Rab offers everything necessary for a great holiday -- friendly people, good facilities, nice climate and great beaches.
