 Croatian Alcatraz, Goli otok, meaning "naked island", is a barren, uninhabited island, located in the Senj door, area of the most powerful winds of the entire Adriatic. 

That is why, together with the nearby island of st. Gregory, it was the perfect place to open  the most cruel, high-security, top secret political prisons and labor camps.

Today these islands are deserted, and testify the intolerance of the communist regime of the former Yugoslavia. 

  The boat ride to the prison island takes 2 hours one way. 
  It is a full day trip and only organized as a private option.
  The trip includes swimming on the sandy beaches of the island of Rab, and island of Prvic.
