Kandarola beach is thought to have been Croatia's first nudist beach, and it all started when Rab island's local authorities gave permission for King Edward VIII and Mrs. Simpson to go skinny dipping in 1936 - which is a raunchy thing for a king to ask for permission for... Since then it's become one of Croatia's most popular naturist beaches, and has been furnished with two restaurants and a beach bar, just out from the resort and campsite. It also offers plenty of water sports hire options (still textile optional?), and lots of trees to provide the shade essential to keeping comfortable if you're swimming sans bathing suit.

The terrain is pebbly and the beach is about one and a half kilometres long. The pretty coves at the western end are where people tend to moor their boats, and just beyond the edge of the beach here are some lovely views if you fancy a stroll.
