Barbat is a small place on the island of Rab, rich with agricultural treasures such as olives and vines. This is the first place you will encounter on the island, after you have left the ferry. Barbat is recognizable by its beautiful pebble beaches, a rich fishing tradition and quality restaurants. Antiques enthusiasts are recommended to visit the St. Damjan hill, where they can see the ruins which have occupied the imagination of numerous curious researchers. It was only recently established that these ruins are the remaining parts of several early Byzantine forts from the first half of the 6th century. Those in search of active sports can enjoy volleyball, basketball, tennis, football, cycling, walking, running, fishing, diving and numerous water sports. The island of Rab is special because of its wonderful sea, fertile fields, vineyards, olive groves and natural wealth of healing plants.
