By car

The island of Pag is situated north of Zadar Riviera. It is one of the biggest Croatian islands, connected with the mainland by a bridge on its the southern side and the Prizna-Zigljen ferry on the northside. The ferry ride takes only 15 minutes. Check our island map for more info on how to access the island. Mind that the car lights have to be turned on day and night. If you will drive, we can help you with recommendations and instructions - send us your questions via email, facebook message, or ask us in our live chat support.

By train

Connections to Croatia by train are good. You can hop on one of the trains coming from Slovenia, Germany or Austria and arriving to Zagreb. However, travelling by train in the direction of the coast can be time-consuming and limiting. Even though it is quite affordable, we recommend avoiding train travelling within Croatia.

By bus

Inbound bus services are plentiful and affordable. Daily bus lines from Germany, Italy, Austria and many other European countries can be found with Eurolines, Flixbus and similar operaters. Most of them arrive to Zagreb. From there you can find a cheap and comfortable ride to Novalja with one of the many local bus companies. Find bus connections here
