After breakfast, we all loaded our luggage back on the bus and drove to our next destination of Pag. 85% of the island is barren rock void of vegetation due to the strong salty winds. Pag is known for its salt, cheese, lace, and most recently its party beaches.
We went to the salt museum first and learned all about Pag’s salt pans and the history behind them. The museum itself was actually very interesting; it was built in an old salt factory with piles of salt all over the place.
Next was the Pag lace museum. Croatian women have produced this traditional lace for centuries. The time and intricate detail put into the lace make pieces extremely expensive. The second picture shows lace worth 5,250 kuna which is a little more than 800 dollars.
After a tour of the city, we arrived at our hotel. The Wi-Fi there was the worst yet and the reason why these blogs are days behind. What made up for the practically non-existent Wi-Fi and no AC was the distance away from the beach. These pictures are a taken a minute’s walk away from my hotel room.
Later on, some of us went out to the main party beach. Ryan, Sam, and I walked there so we didn’t have to pay for a cab. When we arrived, there was barely anyone there. Apparently we were in Pag at the wrong time of the season. We ended up making friends with a group of Austrians who we hung out with for the rest of the night.
The actual area was really cool. Outdoor clubs with neon lights lined the beach. The bars were selling one liter drinks for 100 kuna (about $15). I ordered a Sex on the Beach which tasted amazing.
