Drinks & Nightlife
Like from The Beach Boys song "Welcome to Cocomo!", a club with world class style. It is located in center of Novalja and offers you an open and closed roof top at the same time. It has very attractive interior and represents a stilish club with touch of Miami, Dubai etc. This is one of my favourite places to go out, especially because of amazing music and great atmosphere.

This is for sure one very attractive club next to Zrće beach, moreover because it's located above the sea :) You can literally jump in the sea from the club or maybe enjoy in great music while sunbathing in a net above the sea during the day. Whatever you choose, I believe you'd find something unordinary and unique at this place :)

This is a place that reminds me on summer in very possible way.. You can smell the sea, see beautiful clear sky with stars and hear the sound of waves and crickets. Kokopelli beach bar is located right on the beach, surrounded with Mediterranean woods in a quiet place called Šimuni. It has truly relaxing atmosphere, where you can often find live music, mostly with rock performers and taste amazing cocktails, especially Mojito :)

Parks & Nature
This beach is located near by famous Zrće beach. It shares its beauty of clean sea and amazing view but holds up much more than you'd say on the first sight. This beach keeps secrets from very important Croatian historical rich town Cissa, that has been sunken. You can find it remains around this area and also inside the sea. Above the sea there is one extremely unique and important historical landmark called "tunera" - tuna tower and the remains of the Romanesque St. Georges Church on a hill above Caska.

Prnjica beach for me holds this feeling.. Natural sand beach, transparent clean sea and the view where the island mountain tops are gently merging Velebit mountain, one of the biggest mountains in Croatia. While you'll be visiting Pag I heartily recommend you to experience this place.
