Rava Island, nestled between Iž and Dugi Otok, boasts an intricately indented coastline with 15 coves along its 15 km stretch. The island’s history dates back to the 13th century, with historical documents mentioning the noble Raua family from Zadar, who owned estates on the island. Rava comprises two settlements: Vela Rava in the central part and Mala Rava in the northwest. Vela Rava has served as the island’s primary center since the Middle Ages. The older section of the settlement, perched atop a 82m-high elevation, features a village school that operated until the 1990s, a parish church, and an olive mill.
