The particularity of the island are its numerous sources of drinking water on the island and there are three freshwater marsh lakes - Veliko Blato, Blato and Malo Blato Kolansko.

The proximity of Velebit is reflected on vegetation
where trees are the most rare form and is the single most important factor in the formation of distinctive stony landscape of Pag. Therefore, Pag is the largest kingdom of rocky ground on the Adriatic, where thin grass, low aromatic herb cover, sage and immortelle grow. They make the foundation of the nourishment of the island’s sheep on the rocky ground, intersected by long dry stonewalls, giving a special flavour to the well known cheese of Pag.


Pag is famous throughout the world for its popular beach Zrće near Novalja, an indispensible destination for great fun.
