This sandy beach, named after the famous African desert, is a nudist beach north from Lopar settlement. It's very near to another sandy beach – Rajska plaža. Get to Sahara by foot (it takes around 30 minutes), or if you want to admire it from the open sea, you can get there by boat.
Unlike the African Sahara, there's grenery but not much shade. Still, this beach will be loved by all of you searching for privacy because there are no caffes or restaurants. However, that means you have to prepare everything neccessary for your stay there.
It's worth mentioning that this beach was named by CNN as the number one world nudist destination. Along with Sahara beach, also mentioned were Ciganka and Stolac beach, also nudist beaches.
2. Rajska plaža (Heavenly beach)
Rajska plaža definitely deserved its title but also its Blue Flag. This fine sandy beach in the settlement of Lopar is stretched over one and a half kilometers. It has a short shoal so it makes it perfect for playing with the kids, building castles in the sand, also for playing sports like picigin.
Along with caffes, restaurants, parasailing, there's also a safe guard. Also, the clear sea is perfect for exploring while snorkeling.
3. Pudarica beach
The next beauty on our list, Pudarica beach is located on the southern part of Rab, in the settlement of Barbat. This is another beach that will be liked by families with children, young people, and also senior guests. The tiny, fine sand makes the entrance to the sea a real stroll. With nightfall, this beach, that is, Santos club that is located there, becomes centre of Rab's night life. Get here by bike, car or a boat. Parking spaces for cars are free.
