Pumidorfest – Fiesta de salsa

Tomatoes come in many varieties, forms and tastes, but people from Rab will tell you that the local tomatoes are the best. This is due to the local climate and the soil in which they grow, but also because of the love of the local farmers who cultivate them. The tomato flower is part of the Municipality of Lopar coat of arms, and there is almost no traditional dish that one can prepare without using this tasty delicacy. During the Pumidorfest Tomato Festival, restaurants offer specialities with locally grown tomatoes. The highlight of the festival is a big open-air party in San Marino Tourist Resort which includes a wide range of culinary specialities. There is also a competition for tourists with numerous awards in preparing tomato sauce in kettles. In short: this is a real tomato party!

Sand Sculpture Festival 2018

One of the Lopar’s distinct characteristics, in comparison with the other tourist destinations, must certainly be its beautiful beaches, 22 of them. Sand is a sort of a Lopar „souvenir“, and its special „promotion“, and a successful one at that, is the Festival of Sand Sculptures, when Lopar beaches become the centre of creation of unusual sand art, and the only components used are sand and water.

Apart from the best sculptures, the best photographs are also awarded prizes with the theme of Lopar sand. The enthusiasm of the passers-by and swimmers which pass by the sculptures every day in large numbers, is our motivation to organize the Festival every year.

PLACE: Lopar Rajska plaža / Lopar Paradise beach
