There’s something for everyone –24-hour party-people, families and naturists
Most of the year, the sheep on Pag island outnumber the residents three-to-one. Until the summer, that is, when thousands of Croatians hit Novalja. Not called the Croatian Ibiza for nothing, Novalja’s Zrce beach is home to three open-air dance venues, where the music never stops. Buses run regularly to and from the campsite, so dancing 24 hours a day, every day of the week, is a lure for many young campers.

This site isn’t only great for party-people; the family facilities are just as appealing. A kids’ club will take yours off your hands whenever you need a siesta, and there are numerous playgrounds and games rooms to run amok in throughout the site. But if screaming children are the antithesis of your dream holiday, just decamp to the mile-long naturist section to skinny-dip in the silky seas in peace. New arrivals are driven around the site in a buggy so they can choose a spot. Front pitches under the pines offer great ocean views, but just be aware that they’ll also amplify the early-morning clamour of beachside excitement. Anyone after greater privacy parks near the entrance at the top left, under the ancient Dalmatian oaks.

The narrow sunbathing strip won’t win this campsite any best-beach accolades, but you’ll find you’re not short of alternatives, since Pag boasts the longest coastline in the Adriatic. By servicing a variety of demographics, you’re guaranteed to find a truly varied clientele here – from frazzled ravers to frazzled parents, and all the frazzled bits in between.
