Pag has always attracted people, so it's not surprising that it was populated as early as the Stone Age. The Romans called it Cissa Portunata, and in the 10th century it was called Kissa. The Croats first called it Caska, then Pag. It is assumed that the name for the island originated from the Latin word pagus, which means village.
There are two larger communities on the island, Pag and Novalja, many villages and hamlets, and right in the centre of the island Šimuni are located –a small fishing village known for the best camp on the Adriatic.
