Relax in the shade of pine trees? Not in a hotel room, but surrounded by nature, with birds singing every morning? If this vision makes you smile, it means that a really enjoyable holiday comes with a camping trip. And what, when to this vision add the blue of the sea stretching under your feet and coffee sipped on the sunny terrace? Many campsites offer such relaxation, including Camping Adriatic - Valamar Camping Padova. It is located in Croatia, next to the town of Rab, on the western shore of the island bearing the same name. Washed by the waters of the Adriatic Sea, it provides guests with a wonderful view of the sea and nearby islands.
Holidays on Rab
The island of Rab is located in the northern Kvarner region and is very popular among tourists. It is one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic Sea, and it is one of the few in Croatia with so many sandy beaches. Lovers of long hikes will especially like staying there. The Rab is crossed by numerous hiking trails, as well as marked bicycle paths, encouraging you to be active. We can get to the island only by ferry, crowded in the season by crowds of people willing to go on a cruise.
The town of Rab has something to tempt visitors with, and its main advantage is the picturesque old part, centered on a narrow promontory surrounded by water on three sides. It is a showcase of the resort, often appearing on postcards and tourist folders. People spending their holidays on the island like to visit the village to discover its monuments, including the 27-meter high Romanesque bell tower, the Dominis palace and the baroque church of St. Anthony.
Rest at the campground
Camping Padova is situated in a picturesque, quiet cove in the vicinity of Banjol. The historic center of Rab is approximately 1.5 km away. Willing people can easily reach it by water taxi. In addition to its location, the property offers numerous amenities, including the Piazza with bars, shops and children's playgrounds.
In 2019, the campsite raised its category to 4 stars, expanded the offer of attractions with new swimming pools and slides with a sunbathing area, and prepared the Maro program for tourists spending their family holidays. Another new feature is the Mezzino Snack Bar, serving tasty snacks. In addition, guests have at their disposal a restaurant, and kids - a mini club and a water park. Lovers of lounging on a sun lounger will be pleased with the 250-meter long sandy and pebble beach.
What does camping offer to tourists looking for the perfect place to stay? Guests have a wide choice, from renting a caravan with great views from the hill to a mobile home. People interested in staying in a mobile home will easily choose the best option for themselves. There are 32 cozy, spacious houses with one or two bedrooms, one or two bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen waiting for them. Each has a roofed terrace, air conditioning, satellite TV and internet access. All cottages have private parking.
Among the many options, Marine Premium Camping Home, cottages located in the Marine Village area, deserve attention. They will appeal to everyone who likes sea climates and would like to spend at least one night in an interior inspired by a Mediterranean fisherman's hut.
Those looking for space can stay in the Premium Camping Suite. The cottage has, among others large covered terrace with sunbathing areas. It measures 40.5 m² and can accommodate 4 adults and 2 children. The same as Premium Camping Home and Hilltop Superior Camping Home, from which you can admire the wonderful landscape - the sea and the historic part of Rab. A bit further, in the back of the building, there are Superior Camping Home bungalows. They, in turn, stole the heart of many nature lovers. Hidden in the shade of pine trees, they offer their guests green surroundings that are pleasing to the eye. Couples in love or small groups (max 3 people) can choose Superior Romantic Camping Home or Premium Romantic Camping Chalets - small, cozy houses with all amenities.
