Alpe Adria Triathlon
This is probably the best triathlon in the Croatian championship. Every year, it attracts more than 200 competitors to the island of Rab. The well-tended cycling trails, the dense forest interwoven with walking trails, the emerald and blue sea and the hospitality of your hosts are the best invitation for triathletes to visit Rab. The competition starts at 13:00 in Suha Punta next to the Hotel Carolina, continues to the cove of Matovica and then on to Soline. The swimming part of the race is in Suha Punta Cove. Some say that the view alone that one enjoys along the track is a reward in itself, but at the end of the race there is still an award ceremony and a closing celebration for all the participants.
Kayaking is a great way to get around the island of Rab, to those hidden coves and private beaches and get some muscles. You can rent several types of kayak for your ride, but the most wanted are the ones with the glass bottom through which you can enjoy the view of the deep blue. In Lopar you can rent kayaks at the diving centre Moby Dick (+385914201643) or Sea Kayak Croatia (+385992828628)
