This island of wonderful natural diversity and gorgeous beaches, rich in history and cultural monuments dating to before the Romans, has not one, but two ACI marinas – Rab and Supetarska Draga. ACI Marina Rab is an ornament of its namesake town, Rab Island’s largest population centre and the focus for its culture, education and art, all fostered here for centuries. The marina is located in the town harbour and offers a plethora of amenities to boaters, from a restaurant to a maintenance and repairs shop. The island’s interior is just as impressive as its coast: as much as 35 percent of Rab is forest and fertile land, making it the second greenest Croatian island, behind Mljet.
A sea blessed with plenty of fish and ancient trading routes, numerous medicinal herbs, the bountiful fruits of fertile fields, vineyards and olive groves, together with the inordinate friendliness of its people, make Rab an attractive destination any time of the year. In addition, as organised tourism has been practised on the island since the late 19th century, there are no limits to the locals’ hospitality and their willingness to please each and every traveller.

Ancient Rab already had a water supply system, baths, temples, a theatre, and a network of streets.
