From Zadar it was a lovely journey along one island, across on two ferries then onto Rab Island, great coastline, very popular we discovered when we tried to find somewhere to stop and have a picnic. The old town of Rab is another pleasant one with a remarkable number of churches, narrow streets and great views of the sea. We did a walk from town out onto the peninsular, through a holm oak nature reserve and along the coast to pretty inlets, beautiful blue, blue sea. For some reason a popular thing to do is sunbathe on the public footpath along the sea-front by town, the sea does look nice there but not an appealing place to spend the day. The town is very quiet during the day and buzzing with suntanned people in the evenings.
