Cycling Tourism Island Rab
Rab is the island of sun, sea and beauty and it is one of the greenest islands of the Croatian Adriatic. Numerous promenades and cycling paths will show you the way to the attractive island locations and they will offer you a possibility of enjoying outstanding natural beauties of the picturesque Mediterranean landscape and an active and recreational holiday. Rab is the ninth largest island of the Croatian Adriatic. The island counts 22 km in length from the cape Sorinj to the cape Glavina. The island's width is 11 km. The total length of cycling paths on the island of Rab is 157 km. The total length of walking paths on the island of Rab is 144 km.
KAMENJAK, with its peak at 408 m, is the highest and largest mountain massif of limestone composition that protects the island from the cold northern influences. From here you can enjoy a spectacular view of the mountain massif Velebit and of the nearby archipelago, the islands of Cres, Losinj, Silba, Olib, Krk and Pag. On a clear day, when the visibility is extremely good, you can see the mountain Ucka, which is the highest peak of Kvarner, Sis, which is the highest mountain peak of the island of Cres and towards the south the islands of Uelian and Molat. which are almost 40 miles distant. The best and the most encompassing panoramic view of the island of Rab can be enjoyed from the top of the mountain Kamenjak. The settlements of Barbat and Banjol are located at the foot of Kamenjak, along the coastline and the Channel of Barbat, towards the south. In the southwest of the island a woodland area covers the carst peninsula of Kalifront. Flysch valleys of Supetar-Mundanije and Kampor, separated by a flysch reef, are situated in the centre of the island. A flysch area of the peninsula of Lopar is located in the northwest of the island and its characteristics are numerous shallow sand beaches. We should also mention the Bays of Supetar and Kampor for their extraordinary beauty.
FOREST DUNDO The peninsula of Kalifront is famous for its Holm oak, which can be found in the forest Dundo, one of the rarely preserved forests on the Mediterranean. It is also the most important forest on the island of Rab. In 1949 the forest Dundo was declared a natural rarity and it was placed under the protection of the Department for Natural Heritage Protection in the category of "special reserve forest - botanical reserve" (forest vegetation). - Holm oak (Quercus ilex) is an evergreen oak which can reach thousand years of age. A few impressive examples are preserved in the forest Dundo.
OPEN STATE HUNTING GROUND "KALIFRONT" An open hunting ground is located on the peninsula Kalifront and it is managed by the Faculty of Forestry in Zagreb in the purpose of scientific and research work. On the hunting ground you may find:
- axis deer (Axis axis)
- mouflon (Ovis musimon).
PENINSULA KALIFRONT It is situated on the south-western side of the island. The characteristic of the peninsula of Kalifront is its carst relief and the well-indented coast with numerous beautiful sea bays. It is the greenest part of the island of Rab covered with extraordinary Holm oak forest and it is also the largest woodland area. The length is 9 km from the cape of Kalifront to the cape of Frkanj. The width is 3 km from the cape of Planka to the bay of Kampor. The sea altitude is 50-70 m and the highest point is the area of Plogar 94 m. The coast is mainly low and rocky.
PATH OF PREMUZIC The path of Premuzic was built around 1930 by Ante Premuzic, an engineer holding a BSc in Forestry and a famous architect and constructor of forest roads, mountain-tourist paths and stream management.
PATH OF PREMUZIC ON PENINSULA KALIFRONT It begins left from the source of Pidok and follows a mild slope. The path then reaches the entrance of the special reserve forest Dundo - botanical reserve (forest vegetation). It crosses the asphalt road to Dundo and extends along a private forest, which is enclosed by stonewall. It finally reaches the forest-ranger's cottage Dundo and ends in the Bay of Christopher. Marked on the map with numbers 9 and 10.
PATH OF PREMUZIC IN THE AREA OF SUPETARSKA DRAGA-LOPAR The length of the path is 5,170 m. It begins in the settlement of Matkici near the village of Supetarska Draga, on the bridge above a dam which regulates stream waters of Vela draga. The sea altitude of the bridge is 12 m. The path slowly climbs along the left flow of the stream Vela draga. At the very beginning there are four large stream dams. Some sixty years ago alpine trees were planted around and in the stream. The path then exits to the plateau at the sea altitude of 120-130m. On the left side of the path there is a plateau with private properties and on the right side there is a rare Holm oak forest Suhanj. Here you can also see an impressive example of Holm oak tree. The path proceeds to the forest area Fruga. Before reaching the rocky carst area, on the left side of the path there is a ground eroded in the flood, which is a nice example of the climate factors' influence on the ground and the significance of the vegetation for the protection of such ground. There is also a "Roman path", a part of the pathway which indicates the construction methods of the Roman Empire. The path reaches the rocky carst area and here you can enjoy wonderful views from the peninsula of Lopar, the islands of St. Gregory and Krk. Mountain Velebit can be seen in the background. Due to bora impacts the vegetation in this area is quite scarce. The path lowers towards the bridge-dam of the stream area Jamina, next to the fence of the campsite San Marino in Lopar. Marked on the map with numbers 1, 2 The influence of erosion on the flysch ground and its vegetation is best seen on the examples of unusual forms of ground in the area of the path of Premuzic. Some of the forms which resemble towers and pyramids reach the height of 5 m.
ST. DAMIAN The fortress of St. Kuzma and Damian is situated on the hill above Barbat. It was erected in the 6th century, it served as a sentinel, in defence purposes and for monitoring the waterway to the Channel of Velebit, the Channels of Barbat and Pag and a part of the Bay of Kvarner. The fortress is reached by a steep and narrow shepherd pathway. The central building within the fortress is the Church of St. Kuzma and Damian.
