Water sports

Apart from numerous speeding activities, such as jet-ski, banana ride or tube, Pag bay is a favorite among wind surfers and kite surfers because of the ideal combination of its winds, the slower mistral and the faster bora. You'll find many possibilities of motor boats renting in Novalja. Diving lovers can set out of Stara Novalja where a number of diving clubs operate but you'll find them also elsewhere on the island. We definitely recommend to divers Caska and Vlaška mala bays because of their archaeological remains. But you can also find numerous natural beauties on Pag's seabed, such as reefs and caverns that act as habitats for sea flora and fauna. If you want a real diving adventure make sure to explore one of the many shipwrecks in Pag's surroundings.

From Novalja you can set out to routes along the Novalja field or follow theVine routes; out of Stara Novalja departs the route called Quarry; from Caska you can take the route which leads to Metajna, and there are many more marked cycling routes. The cycling marathon Novalja - Lun and the mini marathon around Novalja prove the popularity of these routes, also interesting to the tourists.
