Kampor

It is located in the northwest part of the island of Rab. It extends from the St. Euphemia bay, Suha Punta, known nudist beach Kandarola and Frkanj peninsula to the spacious Kampor bay and the Kalifront peninsula with naturally protected forest reserve Dundo.

It is the only place on the island that has best preserved the appearance of an old fishing village.

Many bays and coves along the sandy beach Mel and the near Kalifront forest provide a true paradise for guests looking for peace and relaxing atmosphere, which are guaranteed by an unspoilt nature. Therefore, Kampor is an ideal holiday destination for families with children and guests who come with boats.

Naturally protected forest reserve Dundo on the Kalifront peninsula is an oasis for hikers and bikers.

Kampor is an ideal place for lovers of walking or cycling, with its many walking and bike trails. Bikes can also be rented here.

Sports and recreation facilities include a diving center for lovers of the underwater world, tennis, bowls and basketball courts, as well as football fields.

A special feature of the village is the Franciscan monastery of St. Euphemia, who is the patron of the village and its parish. There is an ethnographic museum and a gallery within the monastery, which includes a permanent collection of works by Fra Ambroz Testen. The monastery can boast of one of the oldest libraries in the Adriatic.

Although tourism is now the main activity of people living in Kampor, they used to engage in agriculture and fishing, and did not neglect these activities today. Therefore, do not be surprised to find several excellent restaurants in Kampor, which will appropriately present the authentic cuisine of Rab, be it fish specialties, seafood and lobster specialties, etc., or meat, lamb and pork on the grill, and known Rab delicacies, such as Rab cake. All of this, complemented by sumptuous scents of island herbs, high-quality olive oil and a glass of top local wine in comfortable surroundings, guarantees a complete gastronomic experience.

In the evening, entertainment can be found in one of the cafes or restaurants, and for those more demanding we recommend a night out in the nearby town of Rab.

During the holidays – St. Magdalene on Easter Monday and St. Euphemia on the 16th of September, as well as Fishermen nights that take place in July and August, guests can enjoy the cultural events and entertainment organised in the village.

Therefore, visit Kampor and experience its beauty.
