Paradise Beach (Rajska plaza)
is a picturesque tourist place, the furthermost village
on the island, situated in a fertile valley approximately
14 km away from the old town of Rab.
Lopar's 2km long sandy Paradise Beach (Rajska plaza) is
one of the most famous beaches on the Adriatic. The finest
of sand, shallow, crystal clear and warm sea water (up to
28°C in the Summer months), the greenest pine forest which
offers protection and shade are surely just some of the
reasons why numerous guests are attracted. Due
to the shallow sea level, the beach is perfect for inferior
swimmers, children and elderly people. Near the beach there
is San Marino hotels village and the biggest camping on
the island, as well as many private apartments to rent.
Sandy shallow waters are long and it takes about 500 m until
the sea comes half the waist of an adult on this, in summer
quite crowded beach. In the vicinity there is a large sports
centre containing a variety of playing fields and courts
(tennis, football, basketball, volleyball), minigolf, table
tennis, water slide and a variety of other water sports
activities. The beach has restaurants, bars, life-guards,
life-saving equipment, first-aid equipment, facilities for
the disabled, rental facilities, recycable waste facilities,
catering facilities, phones, etc. The life-guards are present
from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In the height of the season it is a real success to find
free sun-bathing place on this beach because - apart from
tourists from Lopar - more than 50% of town Rab's visitors
come to enjoy this beach.
The beach has been honored by Blue Flag award.
A short walk from Lopar there are other sandy beaches, some
of them used by naturists, with Sahara,
Ciganka and Stolac being the most beautiful and popular.
