Pearl of the Kvarner Bay

The merchant from Rijeka Prohaska (1890) and the lawyer Filippini from Trieste (1904) built there their summer pansions. The beginnings of tourism date back to the end of the 19th century, when Rabac was frequented by excursionists who were coming by steamships of the Lloyd of Trieste, visiting the Istrian and Kvarner coast. In 1912 Rabac had the status of a summer and health resort with three tourist facilities: Albergo al Quarnero, Alla citta di Albona and Miramare. The promenade was constructed in the same year, and the public beach was equipped with a wooden dressing cabin.

The first hotel, Trieste, was opened in 1924. Tourist development of Rabac saw its peak between 1961 (when the hotel company of the same name was established) and the beginning of the 1970s, when tourist resorts Santa Andrea, Maslinica and Girandela were finished. Parallelly, with the decline of mining industry in the region of Labin, family houses, designed for tourist purposes, appeared in large numbers.
The daily accommodation capacity of Rabac can provide for up to 10,000 tourists (hotels, campsites, apartments and family houses). In addition, the town has a fine gastronomic offer, boat excursions, as well as excellent sports and recreational facilities. Easy access, beautiful beaches and clear sea make Rabac one of the best holiday resorts for families.

Sport and recreation: walking along the sea, cycling, tennis, water sports, etc. Sports centres Oliva and Prohaska.

Beaches

Beautiful pebble beaches (4 "blue flags") - beach restaurants/bars - deck-chairs and sunshades for rent.

Blue Flags

Rabac is called a Pearl of Kvarner bay due to its white pebble beaches, rich mediterranean vegetation and crystal-clear, clean and transcluent sea water. No wonder Rabac was awarded the "Blue Flag" eco-mark in 2002. The "Blue Flag" is an international ecological award, a programme of environmental awareness and education and coastal protection run by the international Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in Europe and other parts of the world. It aims at making beaches better and safer for swimming, while, at the same time, protecting their natural environment.The "Blue Flag" symbolizes preserved, safe and pleasant environment for fun, relaxation and recreation, but it also includes an elaborated system of managing the resources, and sustainable development in tourism.
Beaches and marinas, which carry the Blue Flag, offer quality services, have a clean seacoast, and are tidy and adequately equipped. The Blue Flag is not only a symbol of quality and ecological perseverance, but it also represents top quality tourism. www.blueflag.org

Gastronomy

Good food and drink are vital ingredients of any successful holiday. Rabac as a tourist destination owes its fame to the excellent hotel service, superb cooks and the gastronomical delights of the region. Delicious fresh fish, lobster, langoustines and other shellfish are characteristic features of the menus along with the country cuisine, whose particular forte is homemade past with various meat sauces. Fuži (local variety of pasta) or njoki (gnocchi) with game sauce, krafi (sweet and savory cheese filled pasta parcels) with sauce, or pasutice (local pasta variety) with dried cod are only a few of the many recipes we learned from our grandmothers. The famous manestra (a hearty broth of beans with corn or barley), homemade sausages, zarebnjak (dried loin of pork) with sauerkraut, Pršut (dried ham), cheese, home-baked bread and local wine are the regional specialties served in typical konoba (traditional meeting places built in stone with a large fireplace, exposed beams and rustic wooded furniture). A number of restaurants offer international as well as local food and we are sure that you will be tempted to get to know better this area through the flavor of its cuisine.
