Novalja has always been known for tourism and strong bura winds. In pre-pandemic times, Pag as an island was visited by countless tourists on an annual basis. Lovers of partying and of this island’s strange moonlike landscape have come to know this island well, but just like with the majority of other Croatian islands, stoking business hasn’t really been a strong point unless it involves revenue from bars and beaches. That could all be about to alter.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Pag could be pushed up yet another level, and one which doesn’t necessarily have to involve tourism, with the opening of the brand new Novalja business incubator, the first of its kind on an island in this country, reports Zimo.

The director of the new Novalja business incubator, Dinko Skunca, referred back to Pag’s famous bura winds and stated that of all winds the island experiences throughout the year, this, the wind of strength, will certainly be the most significant yet.

With the opening of the Novalja business incubator, one of Novalja’s doggedly determined entrepreneurs also got a spring put back in her step.

”Miracles will happen here,” said entrepreneur Nikolina Persola Dabo, adding that her tracksuits for both girls and boys with the Pag ”signature” on them might not have ever even seen the light of day if the incubator hadn’t opened on Pag.

”For the first six months, I don’t have to pay anything – which is wonderful, I’ll be able to invest that money into buying other business items and raw materials,” she stated.
