The name “Supetarska Draga”, referring to both the village and the bay that is a natural continuation of Rab Island’s largest and most fertile field, is derived from the 11th-century church and basilica of St. Peter. The church has not undergone significant modifications since, and is said to be the only Romanesque church in the Adriatic that has continued in use unchanged for 900 years. The village owes its existence to the industriousness of Rab fishermen, but tourism has now joined fishing as the locals’ main occupation. Three islets with gorgeous sandy beaches in front of the bay make Supetarska Draga a true paradise for visitors. The ACI marina sits in the middle of that dreamland, adding to the attraction of this picturesque part of Rab Island.
Like ACI Marina Pomer in Istria, ACI Marina Supetarska Draga lets us get close to nature and experience a small fishing village. It is also famous for its clean sandy beaches that are sheltered from the wind, increasingly attracting boaters, in particular those with small children. ACI Marina Supetarska Draga is open throughout the year, and after a recent expansion offers 344 wet berths and 53 dry berths. In addition to all the expected amenities, this ACI marina is justly famous for the fine dining in its restaurant.
Did you know…
…that archaeological finds from this part of Rab suggest there were already farm buildings here in early antiquity, and that it is conjectured there was an Early Christian basilica at the location of today’s church?
…that it is not just tourists that enjoy Draga’s beaches and coves? As photography enthusiasts know, numerous bird species have discovered this paradise; some find favourable conditions for nesting, whilst migratory birds settle here for the winter.
