Croatia - Olea Camping


The newly built Olea Camping is a wonderful place if you want to go with your family for a week of relaxation to the sea with a caravan or dwelling and almost forget about civilization. The camp is located directly by the sea in a beautiful location on the west side of the island of Pag. It is away from all tourist attractions and far from larger cities. All campsites are located on a slope gradually descending to the sea. Thanks to this, you can look forward to epic sea views and views of the remote islands of the northern Adriatic from almost anywhere. There is a wonderfully clear sea, pebble beaches and access even without special shoes. The campsite has two private beaches, a bakery and ubiquitous beautiful olive trees. A fresh breeze will blow in your hair and in the evening you can watch beautiful sunsets together and at night with a glass of star wine. Bring a paddleboard, snorkelling gear and a stack of books with you and you will be happy here all week. Fresh pastries to order in the morning, in the evening you throw steak and vegetables on your gas grill and you don't have to worry about anything else. If you need to shop or get a good meal in the restaurant, you can go on a trip to the town of Novalja, 12 kilometers away.



About the Camp


In good weather, you can go on a professionally organized hiking trip or cycling ride, specific tips can be found further in the review. Of course, most of us enjoy water sports and relaxation in the hot summer.


If I say anything, the friendly attitude of the well-coordinated staff. It is far from a matter of course, but it turns your holiday into a relaxing one. The island of Pag is divided into two counties and in the northern part - Lika-Senj - is located on the west side of the island Olea Camping. Olea Camping is accessible from the mainland by bridge or ferry. The local specialty is Paski Sir (cheese from Pag) made from sheep's milk. So don't forget to try it.

Camping equipment

The camp offers variously demarcated plots in sizes 100-150m2. Due to the rocky base, they are especially suitable for dwellings and caravans. For possible camping with a tent, you must look for a suitable place. We recommend that you clarify this when booking. They are divided into 4 levels based on location, size and equipment level. If it is not yet full, you will be given a choice of more options and you will choose exactly the place that will suit you according to the photos. We recommend places with mature olives, which create a pleasant shade, which is definitely so close to the sea. Access roads are comfortable and wide enough. There is electricity and water connection available in most places. Wi-Fi is available throughout the campsite.
