Island Pag is one of the most important islands of Zadar`s archipelago. It is connected with the mainland by drawbridge positioned on the south part of the island. Pag is distanced 78 kilometers from Zadar`s airport `Zemunik`, well connected by the rest of the world with state roads and frequent ferry lines in harbors across the island. It has a number of villages on the coastal, as well as on the continental part, and over 8000 of people living there. Its turbulent history which made it peculiar and mysterious turned Pag to attractive tourist destination whit recognizable gastronomy and active vacation facilities. The whole island is somehow different than other Dalmatian islands, due to its stony landscape with few trees and rare bushes on stiff land. The reason for disappearing of forests on Pag, might lay in the fact that bura, local severe wind, blows here with more effort than else, or in the reason that people used to live here from Antics, explored natural resources of Pag with no consideration towards its green skin. Smokvica is one of the villages of Pag, which kept the scent of traditional living among its walls. It is built high up the sea on bare stone at the south part of Pag, few kilometers away from Pag`s bridge. It has just 50 inhabitants today and most of them are dealing with livestock farming. These days, when tourist are looking for a bed more to rent on Pag, some of them are renting their private houses with cosy and modern apartments or rooms. Smokvica is a place for peaceful vacation although it has well-known beach, favorite destination for surfers all around.
