This island of wonderful natural diversity and gorgeous beaches, rich in history and cultural monuments dating to before the Romans, has not one, but two ACI marinas – Rab and Supetarska Draga. ACI Marina Rab is an ornament of its namesake town, Rab Island’s largest population centre and the focus for its culture, education and art, all fostered here for centuries. The marina is located in the town harbour and offers a plethora of amenities to boaters, from a restaurant to a maintenance and repairs shop. The island’s interior is just as impressive as its coast: as much as 35 percent of Rab is forest and fertile land, making it the second greenest Croatian island, behind Mljet.
A sea blessed with plentiful fish and ancient trading routes, numerous medicinal herbs, the bountiful fruits of fertile fields, vineyards and olive groves, together with the inordinate friendliness of its people, make Rab an attractive destination at any time of the year. In addition, as organised tourism has been practised on the island since the late 19th century, there are no limits to the locals’ hospitality and their willingness to please each and every traveller.
Did you know…
…that the island and the town of Rab, both known in Latin as Felix Arba, have been continuously settled since prehistoric times, and that ancient cartographers, as well as Pliny and Ptolemy, mention Rab as an Illyrian stronghold? Ancient Rab already had a water supply system, baths, temples, a theatre, and a network of streets.
…that many important historical figures hailed from Rab? They include St. Marin, the founder of the Republic of San Marino; Markantun de Dominis, brilliant theologian and physicist; and Ivan Rabljanin, the great bell and cannon founder in the service of the Republic of Dubrovnik.

From the sea the town of Rab is recognisable by its town walls and four bell towers. Rab harbour can be approached by sailing between Cape Frkanj, with a red lighthouse (Fl R 2s 5m 4M) and Frkanj Shoal, marked with a green lighthouse on a concrete pediment (Fl G 2s 6m 4M). The exact position of Frkanj Shoal is 44°44.9’ N 14°45.5’ E. It is also possible to round the shoal on the southeast. The harbour entrance is marked by a red lighthouse on Cape Sv. Ante (Fl R 1,5s 7m 3M) and a green lighthouse on Tunera Islet (Fl G 2s 14m 4M). Due to the presence of shallows in the vicinity of Tunera it is recommended to sail closer to the red lighthouse. ACI Marina Rab is located in Rab Bay extending southeast-northwest. The marina is protected by a breakwater with a green lighthouse (Fl G 1,5s 7m 4M) on its head. During strong jugo (south) winds it is not recommended to moor in the town harbour. The speed limit in the entrance channel is 3 knots for all vessels. The western ends of the marina’s piers are lit.
Note: It is recommended to use the official navigational charts published by HHI Split: 100-18, MK-7 and Plan 20.
