Marine tourism in Croatia is on the rise and the number of boats sailing the Adriatic during summer ever greater. In recent years, yachts belonging to some of the richest people in the world have come to the Adriatic and have visited Rab too, bringing to mind the days when members of the British Royal family stayed on Rab.
Rab is very attractive to sailors. The bays, for daytime anchorage and leisure, the numerous small islands around the island and the favourable winds for those visiting under sail, are the reason why the waters around the island attract boats in the summer. There are two marinas on the island which offer everything sailors need in terms of infrastructure and comfort.
