LOCATION OF THE HOTEL

The Boškinac boutique hotel is situated on the island of Pag, between Novalja and Stara Novalja, on a hill amidst the dense pine woods, at the edges of the vineyards and olive groves. Considering that it stands at the top of the Novaljsko Polje field, at the entrance to Zaglava – a traditional karst terrain for the grazing of sheep – the views from this lovely stone hotel and its terraces and gardens stretch out of the calmer and more relaxed side of Pag – a quiet and fragrant valley. The hotel can be reached by car or bus from the direction of Zadar via the Pag bridge or the ferry Prizna – Žigljen, and from here a newly constructed road leads towards Novalja. Take the bypass road towards Stara Novalja. On this road, you will come to a crossroad with a large sign for Boškinac, decorated with white barrels. Turn right here and head up towards the hotel. By sea, you can reach Novalja by catamaran or your own boat. The nearest airport at Zadar is about 100 km away.

GET TO KNOW THE ISLAND OF PAG

An island with a thousand faces

The island of Pag is one of Croatia’s largest islands, and is completely different from all the others. At first glance, it is rocky and bare, just white rock set amongst the blue of the sea and sky. It resembles the moon's surface due to the rocky shapes that cover 86% of the island's surface. However, another part of the island is covered in olive groves and green pine woods, with 270 km of perfect gravel beaches along the coast of the crystal clean sea. This is one of the sunniest Croatian islands, with 2500 sunny hours per year. But when the north-easterly bura wind blows, it penetrates to the bone, raising the sea mist, salt and water droplets from the sea surface and depositing them on the pastures, meadows and rock of the island. Without this, there would not be the unique flavour of the Pag cheese, lamb and plants, which contain within them the force of the bura wind and the fragrance of sea salt. Pag is composed, like the threads in the famed Pag lace, from the Lun olive groves, the oldest in the world, the salt pans and the dry stone walls layered like the finest filigree handiwork. The medieval town of Pag, 25 km away, was built on the urban design of Renaissance master builder Juraj Dalmatinac, with narrow streets lined up under the 15th century Gothic cathedral. Pag is a town of numerous palaces and churches. Among the historical sights are the old town walls, Rector's palace from the 15th century, cathedral and Benedictine monastery of St. Margarita, in which the traditional preparation of the aromatic dried breads baškotina are still nurtured today.

BEACHES

The island of Pag can boast of having 270 km of beautiful beaches and hidden coves, from those with rocky shores to the finest sand, which are sure to satisfy even the most demanding visitors. Many of these beaches are among the loveliest in Kvarner, in northern Dalmatia, and perhaps on the entire Adriatic coast. Novalja has become a famous destination due to the most entertaining party beach Zrće, called the Croatian Ibiza for its exciting nightlife. This is a favourite destination for those who love dancing, good music and night life, and it is just 4.6 km away. The club Kalypso enjoys cult status at Zrće, where the sounds of the world's best music can be heard day and night and where the party never ends. In addition to Zrće, the most popular beaches in the area of Novalja and the neighbouring municipality Kolan are: Straško, Trinćel, Babe, Caska, Ručica, Beriknica, Jadra, Čista, Pješčana plaža, Sv. Duh, and many smaller beaches in the hidden bays from Novalja towards Lun, and in the areas of Kustić, Zubović and Metajna.
