Sandy beaches are typical to island Rab and villa Agata has a choice of nearest beaches like Gonar, Velimel, or Fuza.
Closest one is Gonar beach, where you will find also the most of beach activities and facilities available. It takes about 3 minutes by a shortcut through a forest path, or 10 minutes walking by the road to get there. Recognisable by a tiny island “Boljkovac”, Gonar bay is completely sandy except for the walkway in the middle where you will also find a couple of restaurants and cafe’s. A long pier with plenty of moorings is positioned in the middle of the bay. The pier is relatively new and equipped with water and electricity for those who are staying with their boats or just pausing for a while on their boat tour around Rab island. Restaurants “More”, “Gonar” and “Marenda” within bay Gonar are very popular on the island for their choice of excellent seafood and sea views from their terraces. Some of those restaurants offer fish that was caught by the owners themselves. Cafe’s are positioned directly by the sea as well and are a great choice for a morning coffee, beach time snack or ice cream.
On the same walkway you will find a diving centre that beside diving classes, also offers diving equipment for rent. A boat with divers regularly takes tours to various diving locations on the island during summer.
Between restaurant “More” and the diving centre, you will also find a boat rental station. Here you can be informed about prices for a daily use of small to large boats. Offer also includes rubber boats from 5 HP to speedboats. Jet skis are available for rent as well.
Beach Velimel is another beach within walking distance that is traditionally visited by house guests. It takes about 5 minutes to get there by walking. Bay Velimel is a sandy bay surrounded by thick forest and so is the pathway to the beach partly through the forest. It is a smaller sandy beach with no facilities except the beach chairs that you may use as guests of villa Agata. You will receive keys for lounge chairs upon request.
Beach Fuza is at about 10 minutes walking distance, and is a wild beach with no facilities. Traditionally it is favored by guests who like the typical natural surrounding of island Rab and wilderness. In the back side of the beach you will find natural dunes of sand and interesting desert-like sand formations surrounded by forest. Beach is partly sandy and partly rocks which are also convenient for sunbathing as they have large flat surfaces.
