The island of Pag is one of the sunniest in the Adriatic Sea with more than 2,500 hours of sunshine per year and relatively low precipitation. In the summer it is cooled by the mistral and south winds, while during the winter the island is washed by the powerful bora from the mainland, from below the Velebit Mountain. That’s why the average annual temperatures are somewhat lower than other Croatian islands at about 15 °C.
The mild Mediterranean climate brings hot dry summers and mild wet winters. The lowest recorded temperature in January was -2 °C, while the average is about 5 °C. In August, the average temperature is around 25 °C. The sea temperature in the winter is 12 °C, while in the summer it reaches 25 °C. The mild climate allows a pleasant stay on the island throughout the year.
