BARBAT is the first village
to encounter after leaving bareness of the ferry port Misnjak and the rocky
landscape. It is stretched
through the Southeast and tightest part of the island with the 5-7
from the old town. Along
the Barbat coast opposite the canal streches the islet of Dolin.
Bushy aromatic vegetation,
olive trees and rocky hill dominate the landscape here.
Barbat has excellent vineyards
on sandy red lands. Many villagers who rent accommodation mind their
leas - they keep sheep,
do agriculture, take upon honeybees and vineyards. It isn't rare that a
good share of
their home-made products
ends up on guests tables.
Here are eco-company "Natura-Rab"
with its' excellent honey products and home made cosmetics as well as
household Topolino where you can try old fashioned food and local wine.
On slopes of the hill Kamenjak
above the village are the ruins of the church St. Damian, which exists
from 12. or 13. Ct. and
which was earlier supposedly an greek fortress - Ptolemeus Collentum.
On the main road beginns
a steep trekking path towards the ruins on the hill 223m above the sea
and further up into the
Rab hidden inland.
This area is also very popular
for its long seaside promenade and nice pebble beaches at the Pudarica
around the old ferry port
cca 2,5 km outside the village easily reachable by car or bike.
Barbat offers accommodation
in board and lodging houses, pension and apartments,
with its seaside promenade
and marinas. Althugh Barbat still attracts many, with the new urbanisation
has changed a lot and can
feel crowded in the high season.
Here is also a traditional
dockyard Piculjan, well known ship builders.
