Rab Island

Woke up to a stormy start so had to put off the cycling until tomorrow. We ventured out in the van and explored the furthest end of the island that would have been too far by bike (for us!). Found some lovely sandy beaches and coves, Tony did some rock climbing and we found a coastal walk which took us to an old house, which badly needed Sarah Beeney’s help. It had great potential and great views and we are just looking for investors because we think we could get it for tuppence!

We continued our tour with the sun coming out, so more photo opportunities before heading back to the campsite for a swim.

Lovely swim and bit of sunbathing then a walk to Rab Town. We were a bit early going in so it was very quiet, there were lots of bars and restaurants all set up for sitting outside and we could imagine that it would be really buzzing in the high season, a great place to spend the evening socialising and despite it being quiet, I am in love with it! Quaint streets, loads of shops that us girls would like, jewellery, clothes, bags, shoes etc., at least 4 churches and as we walked past one, we could hear singing from inside, I took a look and saw that it was an order of Nuns singing, they sounded so angelic and beautiful, a joy to listen to. We had a bite to eat and by the time we started to walk back the sun had set, it looked like it had been a gorgeous one, the sky was still changing colour.

I now have a message from Tony to all you dog lovers. “This is the country to come to if your dog is hankering for a holiday abroad and I just had to take a photo of the dog washing facilities in each toilet block. This is not the first time we have seen them, your dog can bathe in the sea and shower off in fresh water afterward. You know they’ll love it!”


The weather has been so mixed today, we have had thunder, lightening, torrential rain and beautiful sunshine. We have been told it should be a good day tomorrow, so we plan to cycle to another part of the island and find a cove or two.
