According to the legend, Rabac got its name from sparrows (vrabac).
They used to quench their thirst in a small creek which joined the sea in the corner of Long Beach, as it was the single source of running water in the Rabac and was discovered by sparrows. Owing to its string of white pebbled beaches, its crystal clear, clean and translucent sea water, it was named “the Pearl of Kvarner”. In 2002 Rabac was awarded with 4 Blue-Flags - international ecological award, the sign of quality and safety, as well as implementation of high ecological standards and care for the environment.
