The island of Pag in Croatia is the 5th largest island in the Adriatic Sea, and it is 302.47 km long and is the most indented island of the Adriatic.Pag island is known for its poor coverage with the vegetation which is often compared to the Moon’s surface. A rocky landscape with only a mere aroma of aromatic herbs creates a unique impression. Because of the position of the island under Velebit, from which all the year is blowing strong bura, the island of Pag Croatia is almost completely covered with a canola from the Velebit Channel.


Quick Info About Weather on Pag Island

During early spring and autumn conditions can be more unsettled, occasionally accompanied by violent thunderstorms with winds of 30-35 knots or more. In the winter the sudden, violent N wind off the mountains, the bora, is much to be feared, especially along the coast from Rijeka down to Zadar, although its effects can be felt as far south as Split.
Equally prevalent in winter is the scirocco, a S/SE wind that blows up from North Africa, usually in advance of a depression moving E across the Mediterranean. Unlike the bora, the scirocco only occasionally exceeds gale force.
