Getting around

The town of Novalja is well organised for transportation. Your most frequent local travel will be from the town to Zrce beach, where the festival takes place. Even though the distance is not very far, you want to come to the festival full of energy and not walk for 15 minutes after a full night of partying.

Local bus is the best option for you to move around the town and go to Zrce Beach. For only 20 EUR (5 days) or 25 EUR (7 days) you can get a bracelet for unlimited rides. We strongly recommend you add it to your package or buy it separate at a later time.

Alternatives to the local bus are taxis and renting a bicycle or scooter. Beware, if you will ride or drive a car, do not drink alcohol. We, just like the police, strongly disapprove drinking and driving. Besides risking the lives of yourself and others, you can get a hefty fine.


Novalja > Zrce Beach: 3.8 km

Minutes away from the nearest beach, shop, bar and/or restaurant, as well as a bus station where you can take the local bus to Zrce beach

Extra activities

Your holiday at Hard Island will, in addition to the fantastic musical experience, be full of adventures and summer activities. Even though you will be partying hard, don't forget you have travelled far away from to experience new and exciting things. Organise your activities upfront and make sure that you get plenty of rest.


  1. Go crazy with doing water sports
  2. Taste the delicious local food
  3. Attend a folk music concert or performance
  4. Play beach volley with your friends (or soccer, tennis, gym)
  5. Go for a walk in nature

Explore the surroundings

An adventurous spirit is inside you. Get inspired by the beautiful nature and sense the charm of the Adriatic. Explore all that the Island of Pag and Novalja area have to offer. Going to as many beaches as possible is a must, you will surely not regret visiting a museum or art exhibition, and there are countless other natural and cultural sights to visit.

Even though photos show actual accommodations from our offer, they do not represent all accommodations. Due to high quantity of them in our offer we are unable to show pictures of all accommodations.


No, all our apartment accommodations are private, so your apartment is NOT shared by any other group than your own. You can however expect to have neighbours attending Hard Island already, so don’t miss the chance to make new friends!
Not with standard types of apartments. If you want us to guarantee the air condition and WiFi you will have to purchase a premium apartment.
You can request this at STEP 2 of the booking process under ‘Notes’. We cannot guarantee to grant every request, but we will process it by looking at our supply of suitable apartment accommodations for your group and decide depending on the availability.
Yes! You can request for your apartment to be situated in Gajac at STEP 2 of the booking process in ‘’Notes’’. The number of accommodations in Gajac is very limited and can be sold out at any time. Gajac is the closest accommodation area to Zrce beach - Festival venue, check the island map.
Apartments for less than 4 people in Novalja are very rare, especially in the same price range. For full comfort we suggest you to book a 2+2 apartment (one bedroom with a double bed + sofa bed for two in the living room/kitchen area) by choosing ‘’Choose Quantity = 4’’ at STEP 1 and removing 1 or 2 festival tickets at STEP 2 of the booking process. If you happen to have a new friend joining your group later, only an extra festival ticket is needed, while the accommodation has already been covered. Bare in mind that you are not paying for 4 people, but paying for the price of the apartment divided between maximum number of possible guests.

Another possibility is sending us an inquiry for a tailor made package. Currently we still have limited availability of standard rooms and premium studio apartments for 2 or 3 people.
Of course you can! All you need to do is go to choose your holiday package and remove festival ticket at STEP 2 of the booking. The price of the festival ticket will be deducted from the total price of the booking.
You can! Grabbing a festival ticket without accommodation is possible here. You will be able to upgrade your ticket with accommodation later by choosing your holiday package and removing festival ticket at STEP 2 of the booking. The price of the festival ticket will be deducted from the total price of the booking.
Every accommodation owner will present you the rules of their accommodation and collect a safety deposit before giving you the accommodation key. Safety deposit ranges from 30-50 EUR per person and will be returned to you before your departure, if you haven’t damaged the accommodation or equipment inside it. In other words - don’t break stuff or cause damage and keep everything clean as possible - everybody happy!
Every visitor must bring a copy of their personal ID or passport because apartment owners need to check in all their guests.
