Sveti Grgur

  • Second greenest island in the Adriatic

    Only a mile to the north west of Goli is Sv.Grgur (St Gregory Island). Its past was not much jollier. Even today you can see the remains of the women’s penitentiary camp and some 50 bunkers in the karst landscape.

    Fallow deer which eat from people’s hands have become its famous attraction.

    It was occasionally used by the inhabitants of Lopar on the island of Rab for sheep grazing. Grgur is mostly wooded, that its the main difference between Grgur and other two islands (Goli, Prvic) in this group. Most parts of island are covered by wood and shrub-like vegetation, and is the second greenest island in the Adriatic. Exactly bescause of that on island you can also find and game (roes, deers and wild hares).

    arta On Grgur there is only a single bay - Grgur bay that can be commended for mooring. The concrete wharf in the centre of the bay is about 40 metres long. There is any depth only at the south-western end of it, about 4 metres. At the other end, the depth falls to about 2 metres. The quay abuts on the beach, which we might say was nice if it were not an eyesore because of the ruins of the already mentioned women's correctional facility.

    There is a catering establishment "Arta" on the island of Sveti Grgur, and fallow deer which eat from people’s hands have become its famous attraction.
