Rab is the Dalmatian Coast's active break island. The northeastern side of the island is mostly barren, covered in interesting karst features, while the southwestern side is heavily wooded with pine and oak forests, both of which are broken up kilometres worth of biking trails, while off shore there's a wealth of water sporting options, windsurfing being one of the most popular.

Rab Town is the island's main town, a collection of interesting medieval buildings arranged behind a fortified peninsular between four Romanesque bell towers: Rab was part of the Byzantine Empire during the Middle Ages and ruled by Venice during the Renaissance, then annexed by the Habsburg princes in 1815, so while the buildings were built by different people they're more graceful than not.
