This is the perfect beach for anyone who loves nature and tranquility. The nudist area ends with two bays and a beautiful rocky beach which is the prime 'gay area'. It isn't crowded, and has a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. Furthermore, there is a splendid pine wood right by the beach offering shade, fresh air and the opportunity to cruise. The nudist beach is large, with many trees to provide shade, and the ocean is clean. There are also showers, sports facilities and massage services. The beach restaurant has a good menu with moderate prices. There is a small entry charge of 15Kn (about 2€) for the day.
This is the only official naturist beach around Rab old town. When you enter the nudist area, after paying for a ticket, walk along the beach to your left until you reach a restaurant. Shortly after you pass a small circular bay made of stones, follow the path uphill and get across the promontory facing you. It takes about 20 minutes to walk here after you get off the boat but it's really worth the effort!
You can reach Kandorola beach by boat or by car.
- From the harbour of the Rab old town, in front of the Hotel Istra, the taxi boat (25 kuna or 3.20€) takes you to the entrance of the nudist beach. Departs every hour.
- From the harbour of the village of Palit (5-10 minutes walk from the town of Rab), close to the Thalassotherapy building, you can get the taxi boat (departs ever 10-20 minutes, 20 kuna return ticket) to the beach. Ask to get off at the nudist beach. Once you get off the boat, go straight across the woods until you reach the sea on the other side of the peninsula (just follow the crowd) and then turn right following the footpath (FKK is written on the stones) until you reach a booth where you'll pay the ticket to enter the nudist beach.
The beach can also be reached by car: from Rab, follow indications to Kampor. After the S. Eufemja Church, by the restaurant Eufemija at your left, you'll find the road to the Hotel Eva of Suha Punta. Here the road stops and you can park the car in the hotel parking. Go down on foot towards the sea. Once you reach the concrete path, turn left. You'll reach a small wooden booth where you'll pay for a ticket to enter the nudist beach. Follow the path on your right to get to the gay beach.
